2. Gaining New Personal Powers
Beginning of Success

Last updated: June 25, 2017

I believe the beginning of success in life is having empowering beliefs in control of your subconscious mind.

Unfortunately, many people have limiting beliefs controlling their subconscious mind. However, they can implant empowering beliefs to replace any limiting beliefs that may be preventing them from improving their life.

The following topics explain this transformation:

How beliefs can affect your life
How empowering beliefs are formed
Choosing your empowering beliefs
Using affirmations to implant new beliefs
Using visualizations to implant new beliefs

This information was the key to achieving my goals for retirement. My first such goal was the completion of this website.

How beliefs can affect your life

Beliefs are implanted into your subconscious mind by favorable or unfavorable experiences in life. Beliefs guide your subconscious mind in interpreting your surrounding circumstances and deciding what actions to take in life.

Limiting beliefs tend to restrict your actions, resulting in a life of disappointment and mediocrity.

Empowering beliefs encourage you to seek out opportunities that can improve your life. They also help you to overcome problems and correct your mistakes.

I think it can be very difficult for an ordinary person to achieve success in life without having empowering beliefs in control of their subconscious mind.

By implanting empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind, you can decrease the influence of any existing limiting beliefs. Also, you can create new powers that can help improve your life.

After I retired from a disappointing career, I wanted something better for the rest of my life. By implanting empowering beliefs into my subconscious mind, I was able to improve my life. I am not a perfect person now. But I am more ambitious and capable than when I was making a mess of my life during the last years of my career.

If you want to improve your life, use the information on this page and then study the rest of this website. Good luck to you, my friend!

How empowering beliefs are formed

Beliefs are formed in your subconscious mind due to repeated favorable or unfavorable experiences in life, especially those during your childhood and early adulthood.

In my opinion, there are three primary ways that empowering beliefs can be implanted into your subconscious mind.

  1. If you grow up in a nurturing and wealthy family, you will receive encouragement and praise all during your childhood. Then you will attend private schools and prestigious colleges that are focused on preparing you to be successful in life. These schools will also provide valuable social contacts that make it easier to enter a top-flight career. Because of these continuing favorable experiences, your subconscious mind will be filled with empowering beliefs.
  2. If you encounter and overcome some dangerous or very difficult circumstance, you may come to realize that you can achieve more in life than you previously assumed. Then you may decide to seek out various ways to improve your life. If you encounter problems, you won’t let them defeat you. You will simply find some way to overcome them. Your newly achieved bold attitude and favorable experiences will gradually implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind.
  3. As for the rest of us, we usually will have to use special methods to implant empowering beliefs into our subconscious minds. The two most powerful methods are affirmations and visualizations. Both of these methods can trick your subconscious mind into accepting a new reality. This is a reality whereby you have become empowered in some way. By repeatedly using these methods, you will be able to implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind.

These two special methods and other personal empowerment tactics are described in my Kindle book, Magic Success Secrets. You can go to the following page to learn more about this priceless book.

Choosing your empowering beliefs

You can use empowering beliefs either to override the harmful effect of any limiting beliefs, or to give yourself new powers.

For the first purpose, you need to decide what limiting beliefs are keeping you from improving your life. Do you feel afraid of making changes in your life? Do you lack ambition or a driving force? Do you feel undeserving of a better life? Once you decide on what is holding you back, then you will know what you need to change.

For the second purpose, you are free to achieve any new power that will improve your life. You might want to implant a desire to start choosing and achieving goals. You might want to implant a need for success. You might want to implant a desire to have more money. The available choices are endless.

The two following methods can be used to implant empowering beliefs into your subconscious mind. These beliefs may include new attitudes or traits that you want to acquire. These methods work because the subconscious mind can be conditioned by experiences that are repeated and have a high emotional content.

When using either method, you should repeat it several times a day for at least two weeks. You may want to continue daily use of your chosen method until you begin to experience the effects of these new beliefs in your daily activities.

Using affirmations to implant new beliefs

An affirmation consists of one or more statements that you repeat out loud to yourself. Each statement describes some attitude, belief, or trait you claim to already possess. These statements must show an existing condition. Don’t say, “I want to be ambitious.” Instead say, “I am ambitious.”

If an affirmation consists of two or more statements, they should all be consistent with each other. If all your statements are focused on various aspects of personal empowerment that should not be a problem.

As with most things that change your life, I recommend that you start with easy concepts and gradually work up to concepts that are more difficult.

Example of affirmations for easy concepts:

·     I deserve a better life.

·     I have a need for achievement.

·     I set goals to improve my life.

·     I enjoy working on my goals.

Example of affirmations for more difficult concepts:

·     I always achieve my goals.

·     I am a self-starter.

·     I assume responsibility for my own success.

·     I assert my rights when dealing with others.

Using visualizations to implant new beliefs

A visualization is a guided daydream of an empowering scene. This scene should show you using a new capability while having strong feelings of power and excitement.

The scene should begin with you deciding to use your new attitude, belief, or trait to accomplish some desirable objective. Then it should show you going through the appropriate actions while feeling powerful. It should end with the accomplishment of the desired objective, along with feelings of great excitement and joy. The longer and more detailed the scene, and the more emotions you can include, the better.

I recommend that you write a detailed description of the scene you want to use for your guided daydream. Study this description several times until you know it by heart.

When doing the visualization, close your eyes and begin to see the scene play out inside your mind. Picture the actions and feel the emotions. Let yourself laugh or smile if appropriate. The scene should build to a successful climax.

You may feel silly at first when using this method. But believe me; it can bring benefits that are well worth the time and effort.

Example of a visualization scene:

You are sitting in a staff meeting when Jerry, the firm’s incessant braggart, starts to monopolize the conversation with his continual interruptions. You decide to use your new attitude to be assertive to get him to shut up for a change.

“Jerry, what you just said is not true. I can show you a website that has the actual wording of the U.S. Constitution,” you boldly interrupt him.

“So what? I’m just stating my opinion,” Jerry replies.

“Jerry, your opinion on off-topic subjects doesn’t matter here. What matters are the things we have to discuss at this staff meeting,” you state in an authoritative manner.

“Well, can’t I just…”

“No, Jerry. You can’t keep interrupting our staff meetings with your pointless comments!”

You are feeling more powerful with everything you say to Jerry.

Jerry looks completely defeated and keeps quiet for a change. The other staff members smile approvingly at you for getting him to shut up. You are feeling triumphant after demonstrating your new attitude of assertiveness.
