Emile Coué, the French psychotherapist once said: “When the
imagination and will power are in conflict, are antagonistic, it
is always the imagination which wins, without any exception.”
Then you can program yourself for success by understanding the
power of imagination.
Imagination builds cities. Imagination makes dreams come true.
Imagination will drive a lot of people to success, and you are a
part of it.
We know that imagination and rationalization don’t go each other
When you dream, the right hemisphere of the brain and your
subconscious mind are working and usually, you feel peace, you
see compelling pictures and you hear beautiful sounds. Success is
within your reach. But the problem is that the left hemisphere of
the brain is also working and usually tells you “you can’t do
that” or “it’s not for you” “You don’t deserve it” “what if I
tell my friends and family?” “You are crazy”.
The truth is that you are unique and your contribution is
important. You can make a difference and have success. High
achievers are only what you will become in a few years, aren’t
There are some “tricks” I would say or some proven methods and
techniques to program yourself for success. The only and
necessary step to do that is to bypass your conscious mind. When
done, your subconscious mind takes it over. You can freely dream,
visualize yourself win the game of life. You turbo charge your
mind and you program yourself for success. This is how successful
people do and that’s what you will do from now!
The three components of the programming of your mind are
relaxation, visualization and affirmation.
1. Relaxation: the first key to mental programming for success.
As we start to relax our brain wave cycles start to slow down and
our brain would enter what is called the Alpha State in which the
conscious mind has effectively fallen asleep, and our
subconscious mind remains in control of our Autonomic Nervous
System. During relaxation, the mind relaxes, the body unwinds. It
is here where our thoughts slow down until they become so light
they begin to float. It is here that we are able to restore, re-
energize and empower ourselves and harness the power of the
subconscious mind to help create long-lasting change. Alpha state
is the gateway, the entry point that leads into the subconscious
2. Visualization: the second key to mental programming for
Through relaxation you enter a state of creativity, essential for
your success. You can induce new thoughts and new beliefs to your
subconscious. And now you hold the image of what you really want
and act as if you already possess it. Remember, imagination rules
your lives, frightens you, excites you or undermines you.
Pictures make you worry or happy. Clear pictures, and rich
details, of what you really want is one of the critical factors
for your success.
3. Affirmations: the third key to mental programming for success.
You can induce new thoughts and new beliefs to your subconscious
by affirmations or suggestions. One of the power principles of
the subconscious mind is the compliance principle meaning that
part of the mind complies to where you direct him to go. In the
book, the one minute millionaire” from Robert Allen and Mark
Victor Hanson, one of the affirmations they encourage us to say
is “I walk like a millionaire, I act like a millionaire, I’m a
millionaire”. When you add feelings, it doubles or even triple
the result. Really believe what you’re inducing.
You can program yourself for success. It is all about using the
same tools and techniques that high achievers used. Relax,
visualize and affirm what you really want out of life. You can
win and you deserve to win. It is reserved only for those who
really want to go for it. Are you ready to take your personal and
professional life to a whole new level?
