How Your Mind Really Works

 

The best symbol of the mind is an iceberg. If you want to change where the visible part of your life moves, you’ve got to look at what’s happening in what’s hidden below the surface. 

Your Mind Is Not Your Brain

Your mind is your entire operating system, including your thoughts, your feelings, your actions, your habits. It's everything about how you operate, including your body that physically carries out the instructions given by the conscious or subconscious mind. 

The Iceberg Metaphor 

What we can see of the iceberg above the surface of the water is actually misleading in comparison to the size of the whole thing. As you can see from this image, there is a pristine formation on the top, while what’s hidden underneath is an absolutely massive formation that is kind of doing its own thing.

This is exactly how your mind works. Let’s look at the two parts:  

Your Conscious Mind 

The top part of the iceberg represents your conscious mind. Your conscious mind contains your: 

  • Deams and desires
  • Goal-setting ability
  • Determination
  • Willpower
  • Decision-making 

Your Subconscious Mind 

Your subconscious mind, represented by the much bigger bottom part of the iceberg, is what contains your paradigm. 

A reminder from previous videos and blogs, a paradigm is the hidden force of all your beliefs, habits and self-image, that really controls your actions, (and therefore whether you achieve the results that you want.) 

This paradigm lives in the subconscious mind, and just like the iceberg, it’s harder to see because it's beneath the surface.

The Conscious Mind Can’t Direct The Conscious Mind 

The most important thing to understand with this iceberg metaphor is how the bottom of the iceberg is really going to direct where the top of the iceberg is going to move. 

Where a lot of people go wrong is they put all their effort into trying to direct the conscious mind. They say, "I just need a better strategy," and they put all of their efforts there. But actually what's happening is that those actions keep getting corrected by the beliefs that you hold in the subconscious mind--your paradigm. 

You feel like you're taking two steps forward with your own sheer will and determination, but then you get dragged backward. 

Another analogy is a plane on autopilot. Where you end up depends on what final destination you programmed into that plane's computer system. No matter how much you try to deviate off course to achieve some other goal, it will keep correcting and bringing you back to the path that's been programmed.

Reprogramming Your Paradigm

The answer to achieving your goals is to reprogram your subconscious mind so that it starts to align with the things that you want: what's sitting in your conscious mind. 

In future videos and blog posts I’ll give you more tips and information to help you re-program your paradigm. Stay tuned!
