Intellectual achievement is always a reason for learning; is that anyone who wants to achieve their maximum performance in any area must use the power of their minds to achieve the goals.
To be a high performing person in the field that you work or want to be one takes hours of training. When you know these tools of mental self-control, you will be closer to achieving them.
Habits are articulated in the mind
Those who are successful in a certain area train permanently, as this cannot be achieved overnight, not just by reading a book, but by practicing and practicing. It is this dynamic that creates mastery so that you reach enough height to achieve the goals you have set for yourself.
If you make an analogy with a computer, the mind is that Hadware of the brain, that’s that software that runs the wonderful machine called the human body.
There are two specific parts within the mind that you need to pay special attention to in order to develop its full potential: the conscious mind and the subconscious mind.
Everything is born of a thought and an idea; At this conscious level you “recognize” what you are working on internally. It is the place of logic, risk assessment, feasibility study, and the concrete steps you take to take action.
In his book “The biology of beliefThe biologist Bruce Lipton confirms that consciousness hardly does between 1 and 5% of mental work. It means there is a huge mental potential that is not yet being used and it is the one that takes care of everything else.

2. The subconscious:
The conscious mind is the doer of the tasks you give it according to the other part: your subconscious.
Did you want to achieve something like a diet or a raise or more customers for your company? You may have realized that just having will, enthusiasm, motivation and desire is not enough: if the subconscious patterns are not aligned with the stimulus you are trying to achieve, it is very unlikely that you will achieve it.
The subconscious is responsible for 95 to 99% of what we think, say, the urge to do and, most importantly, how we feel about it. It is an unstoppable force when we know how to push it wisely and positively (and in fact, the same thing happens negatively: you generate more against what you say you want).
The subconscious makes it possible, without you noticing, that automatic vital functions such as heartbeat, breathing and the immune system continue to run in order to protect us and to alert us to any health problems that may arise.
Just like the conscious mind is the executor, the subconscious is the one that tells you where to go and how to do it.
The problem that most people don’t get what they want has to do not with the lack of resources or contexts or environments, but with beliefs and paradigms in their subconscious in which they anticipate the failed “I can’t.” “have established. .
It is a fact that in any part of the world where there is someone who is not getting the desired results, there is another person who – under the same circumstances – does.
This unconscious space does not discriminate, it just accepts and obeys the commands you give it and acts as you tell. This records many of the childhood patterns and behaviors that continue to repeat themselves as adults, such as:
- In order to be a good person one has to obey others (adult consequence: submissive person).
- Few people stand out (consequence: delayed life).
- Money is bad (consequence: poverty).
- You will never have your own company (consequence: be a lifelong employee).
If these consequences are what you really want, there is no problem. The problem is when what you see is manifesting in reality and you don’t want it for yourself.
They are so much bigger than your problems and your limiting beliefs. There are endless possibilities and possibilities so that if you wish, you can get out of these conditioning patterns by developing the power of your mind.
7 techniques for changing mental models
We call a mental model an internal map that you have drawn since you were born that determines the outcomes of your life.
“That’s me and I won’t change,” you may have said. Well that may be different because if you do choose to do it, you change yourself. These techniques will help you:
1. Stop living on the autopilot
Instead of making hasty decisions and making immediate decisions, slow down, think, observe situations, choose the one that is most favorable to your goals and objectives, and then act.
2. Stimulate the happiness hormones in your brain
There are three hormones that we all have and we can stimulate them to constantly evoke feelings of happiness, joy, balance, and wellbeing. Endorphins are responsible for happiness; Dopamine for motivation and pleasure; and serotonin contributes to a calm and relaxed mood. To get more of them, eat foods rich in omega 3 and healthy fats (consult your doctor before changing your diet). It also includes regular physical exercise, meditation practices, positive reading, and any activity that redirects the tendency of negative thoughts to those who contribute to your well-being.
3. Change the way you think
Although it may seem like a difficult task, your life changes significantly when you consciously include positive thoughts in it. This requires continuous training, especially if you are prone to turning your mind into catastrophic pessimism that leads to undesirable results. Positive affirmations, self-awareness, and working on self-esteem are all essential to changing the polarity of your most common thoughts. Remember, roughly 90% of the population think negatively almost 90% of the time: you can imagine the outcome.
4. Sleep with quality

Adequate rest helps separate feel-good hormones and an adequate physical and mental condition to face challenges. Even a short nap will charge your batteries. Neuroscientists recommend 7-8 hours of deep sleep per day. Avoid electronic screens before you go to sleep: it is preferable to spend some time reading – for example – or meditating for a good night’s sleep and for your mind to rest from stimuli that it perceives as aggressive.
5. Focus on learning something new every day
Empirical learning that results from new experiences leads to a permanent form of knowledge that you have to bring into your consciousness as it happens. This brain synapse can be trained to become aware of the effects of incorporating the new. You can stimulate curiosity, manual or mental skills, train neurons, read on topics completely different from the usual and set yourself the goal of meeting a new person per week – someone who adds value to your life and vice versa. At this point, for example, the conversion or a mentoring process can help you.
6. Train yourself to think differently
Most people live in paradigms, which are beliefs about how things “should be”. The intent at this point is that you manage to expand your mind to generate new opportunities. Einstein affirmed that “the mind is like a parachute: it only works when it is open,” and that is the point. You can include critical thinking, conscious observation of your thoughts, contemplation and lateral thinking as tools to incorporate new ways of thinking.
7. Create your goal plan and visualize it daily

If you start the day by spending ten or fifteen minutes writing down your goals for the day according to the accomplishments you want to achieve in the medium and long term, this is an excellent way to develop the strategy to achieve it . It’s not enough to tell you things: when you write them, make them tangible, and even better, put your signature on them. Then creative visualization consists in building in your head the exact vision of how things are supposed to develop: you pretend that you are about to achieve them. Visualization works when you practice it with continuity and consistency, and when you dedicate yourself to observing how the results come from internal and external discipline.
