The power of thinking actually works both ways: thinking can increase, but also derail success with your programming thoughts. Therefore, if we want to increase success, we might look for any sabotaging thinking patterns and replace them with thinking patterns that increase achieving our goals.
There are many examples where our thinking can program the outcome. For example, when we make a mistake, we will generally ask ourselves one of two categories of questions: Judging Questions: What was I thinking? Why am I such an idiot? What were they thinking?, etc.; or Leadership Questions: How can I still accomplish my objective, What can I do to improve the situation?, etc. Regardless of which type of question you ask yourself, your subconscious mind will go about answering the very question posed. As you can imagine, judging questions evoke judging responses that are not productive and often lead to enhanced suffering, whereas leadership questions engage the subconscious mind to come up with creative strategies to accomplish ones objectives.
This is one example of where conscious understanding of how our mind works can help us better accomplish ours and our clients’ objectives.
