One of my favorite quotes is the famous line spoken by Napoleon Hill in Think & Grow Rich: "What the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve."
Sounds good doesn't it?
When our minds accept that something is true, a belief, then our mind sets in motion any and all events to make that our reality.
Whatever beliefs, thoughts, and ideas that your mind becomes familiar with, or is conditioned to, must become a part of you and that is who you become.
But how do we get our minds to conceive and believe, and ultimately achieve, the things we want?
The mind is like having our own personal little computer - it just tosses out results based on the instructions we give it.
When we want different results, we must give our minds new instructions to follow.
Some call it self-suggestion, others call it auto-suggestion, others call it subliminal messaging, but I like the term reframing.
Reframing is when you continuously introduce new ideas and thoughts into your mind until they become a dominant belief.
The amount of time it takes to reframe new beliefs into your mind will depend on how consistently you introduce new thoughts versus the amount of time you spend thinking about your current beliefs.
Imagine a cup of dirty water (your current beliefs). If you begin to add clean water (new thoughts) to the cup, eventually you will end up with a cup of clean water (new beliefs).
It also depends on the amount of beliefs you have in your mind that need to be reframed. Replacing a cup of dirty water takes less time that replacing something the size of a bathtub, or a swimming pool.
Beliefs are really nothing more than thoughts - ideas that we think are true. The truth is that beliefs are not facts, they are only thoughts. Sure they may look like facts because our outer world has been arranged to match our beliefs.
We can choose to think and believe whatever we want.
The more we think a new thought, the more it becomes a belief. Once these new beliefs have become a part of our subconscious, then our world must change to match our new beliefs.
"What the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve."
Alexander Graham Bell knew that if he held the concept of the telephone in his mind, the ideas, people and resources to make it a reality would come to him.
Rhonda Byrne (creator of The Secret) knew that if she held a vision of perfect eyesight in her mind that her subconscious mind would make that a reality. And it took only 3 days!
And I know that if you make the choice to have a new belief, your world will change to make that a reality.
