VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: You are what you think
The mind is the most powerful tool in the world.
With the mind, we have created computers, smartphones, electric cars and everything you can see around you.
Steve Jobs said, everything you see around you was created by someone no smarter than you.
And he was right.
We are now creating robots for our assistance.
We are developing in the field of artificial intelligence.
None of this would be possible without us thinking, focusing and concentrating on the future, using our minds.
Our mind can be our best friend or our worst enemy.
It is not material or physical.
We cannot see or touch it.
Yet its effects can be seen on our faces, in our words and through our behaviours.
Our thoughts and feelings create and perceive the world around us and are often controlled by our subconscious.
And this subconscious mind controls our decisions.
Whatever belief we hold in our subconscious mind, becomes our reality.
Everything we crave, desire and act on comes from our subconscious.
The subconscious mind is influenced by senses.
Everything we have seen, heard, smelled, touched or tasted.
Everything we are or have been exposed to, shapes our mind, whether we consciously realise it or not.
So this means who you surround yourself with daily, who you call, what you listen to, what you see and do, all begin to affect you.
Through these sensory experiences, our minds create thoughts.
These thoughts help us visualise our experience and help us express these senses creatively.
The thing is, when we dwell on these thoughts, they become memory.
And these memories circle in our minds, day and night even when you close your senses.
They begin to affect your day to day thoughts, desires, goals and attitudes.
They even manifest in dreams.
These thoughts which become memories all have an emotional connection. The stronger the emotion, the longer term the memory.
As we repeat exposure to these senses which trigger these thoughts, they become habits.
And as we continue these habits, our body believes it knows better than our mind.
We stop listening to our mind because these patterns have ingrained in us as habits.
These habits then trigger the same emotions connected through the memory.
Often times, strong memories are negative which can make us unhappy, sad and feel pain.
That familiar past, becomes our future.
But it’s not your fault.
Our experiences from early days shape us to be negative.
From the point we enter school, we are taught what we can, or cannot do.
When we begin to work, we enter survival mode.
Earning to keep a roof over our head, food on the table and subject to arbitrary demands to have this basic human right.
When we have families, we impart this same survival ethic to our offspring.
And the cycle continues.
We keep stressed. We live life in survival.
And that is why – what we think, who we surround ourselves with, what we do – we become.
Understanding this concept, is the secret to unlocking your mind.
We hope you found this introduction to the mind useful.
In following videos, we’ll explore this in more detail and show you how you can begin to take control of your mind, and your life.
The mind is the most powerful tool in the world. With the mind, we have created computers, smartphones, electric cars and everything you can see around you. But learning to control your mind can be challenging.
Your mind is controlled by the environment around you. How you grew up. What you watched. Read. Listened to.
And the choices are your own to make now.
Do you want to be positive? Or negative?
