I want to talk to you about a huge trap that we are all caught up in. No-one is exempt from this trap and the trap is us as a human being. It is the human physical form, the brain the central nervous system, the physical being and it’s trapping us into a state of survival.
Today I want to talk to you about a huge trap that we are all caught up in. No-one is exempt from this trap and the trap is us as a human being. It is the human physical form, the brain the central nervous system, the physical being and it’s trapping us into a state of survival.
Evolution and nature don’t care about our success, don’t care about us exceeding our expectations and succeeding at anything we can imagine. They don’t care about any of that, what they care about is surviving. Surviving long enough, so that we can pass on our genes and the species can continue. It’s a huge trap. We are not built for abundance, we are not built for huge success. We are built for just enough, we were built to do enough and to have enough to survive. Once we find a way of surviving in this world, then evolution and nature has a whole mechanism in place that keeps us stuck in that place.
Unless we deliberately get involved, unless we deliberately start to get involved in our own life and start to influence the systems that are already manipulating us into averageness and into mediocrity; then we are going to continue to play out a life of survival as opposed to playing out a life of thriving and success and ultimate achievement that you want out of life. We need to break free of this trap.
99% typically of everything you think feel and do is unconscious. Even when your most lucid, most awake and most alert 95% of everything you think, feel and do is unconscious. What that means is that we are playing out unconscious habitual patterns of behaviour. Both in terms of our feelings and in terms of actions that we’re taking and that’s going to be getting us a predetermined result, which is pretty much what you’ve got right now in your life. Look at your life, whether you love it or hate it or anything in the middle. It is a direct reflection of the habits playing out unconsciously every minute, every hour of every day of every week of every year and that is manipulated by survival first.
If we want to go beyond survival, if we’re going to go to thriving or to beyond thriving, to ultimate success and achievement, we need to get involved in the game. We need to influence the systems that are manipulating us.
This is a phrase that you will hear me say over and over again if you hear me speak – we are being manipulated by evolutionary systems, biomechanics that sit in our brain that emotionally dictate how we feel and what we do, what actions we take, what we don’t do, it’s manipulating us into a place of safety. For most of us safety is really average it’s really mediocre and it can be very frustrating.
What we want to do is blast through that plateau and go to a place where we are ultimately successful, even hugely successful, hugely happy, having an amazing experience and that is not going to happen by accident. If we don’t naturally have the influences around us that manipulate us into that higher state of achieving, we need to go out and be that person for ourselves. Most people didn’t have that role model on what it was like to be hugely successful and achieve huge results and to be hugely satisfied and fulfilled and happy in our lives so we don’t know how to do it.
We have to go out and learn how to do it and then we have to influence down system. In other words our conscious selves needs to influence downstream to the unconscious mind which is in control of nearly everything you think feel and do. We can align what it will think feel and do with what we want it to, so it takes the action that we need it to take to get us to a place where our life is fulfilled and we are having the experience that we want and the success that we want.
We want to sit on top of the system and we want to influence down, align the unconscious mind to take the action that we need it to take to create the experience we want for life and it fills back up as an experience and also the outside world starts to change it starts to materialise into the success and the reflection of the achievement which also gives us the reflection of the experience that we want to have in life.
The conscious self can influence the unconscious. It can’t control the unconscious, it can’t even control the body. It influences the unconscious to create an unconscious reaction, which is to create the thoughts feelings and behaviours that create the outcome that we want to directly magnify the experience in the life that we want to achieve back at us.
Stop being a victim of your unconscious minds desire to just keep you safe at all costs. Get outside of that, influence it and start creating a life of real achievement and real success.
Until next time be successful
