Chapter 12 - The Subconscious Mind

A quote from Bruce Lipton "Our thoughts are mainly 
controlled by our subconscious, which is largely formed 
before the age of 6, and you cannot change the subconscious 
mind by just thinking about it. That's why the power of 
positive thinking will not work for most people. The subconscious 
mind is like a tape player. Until you change the tape, it 
will not change."

Michael Dlouhy made a decision at the age of five that
changed his life forever. 

He was told by his mother that "He was no good."

He said, 'How can I be no good, I am only five years old?"

At five he was already "Learning how to think, not what
to think" so he decided to listen to his Aunt Honey who 
told him "She loved him, she told him he was so handsome, 
he was smart and he could do anything."

So at age five Michael decided to listen to his Aunt Honey so
he changed the tape and that changed his life forever.

Have we changed our tape or are we still playing the same
tape over and over expecting different results?"  

Albert Einstein said ""The definition of insanity is doing 
the same thing over and over again, but expecting different results."

If we tell ourselves we are successful in anything but we
keep doing the same things we have always done, there will
be no change, we will not get different results.  

Florence Scovel Shinn said "You will be a failure, until you 
impress the subconscious with the conviction you are a success."

Michael made a choice to be a critical thinker and decided to listen to
his Aunt Honey and not listen to his Mother and that changed his tape,
and that not only changed his life forever but also changed our lives
forever as well.  Without Michael making that choice at a very young
age where would we all be now?

Do you have an Aunt Honey?  Yes, we all do.  We have many
of them here at 'Mentoring for Free" and we can help each other
become critical thinkers and change the tape.
