“The mind doesn’t know anything about age, your subconscious mind knows nothing about time and space. And so, I am hanging around young people all the time and I operate like they do. I don’t think of myself as being old.” – Bob Proctor
That’s how powerful the mind is. I want you think way back when people had to take ships from one continent to another. The Berlin Olympics was a prime example of how far the athlete had to go physically to obtain rewards. Now, or just in the last couple of decades, the Concorde was developed, which was an aircraft that can get from New York to London in three hours. The mind created that. You can go so far to say, “oh, well academics created that.” Well, we created academics. What was before schooling?
Let’s think about conditioning the mind. If you say, “I’m getting fatter, shorter, older, uglier.” You feel all of those feelings that relate to those comparative adjectives, right? Feeling of depression, stress, sadness – you name it.
Conversely, if you say the opposite and think the opposite by reaffirming positive thoughts, you will believe it. You will believe anything you feed your subconscious mind.
I told myself that I was “black” my entire life because society labeled me that way. Coming over here to Thailand, where labelling is taken to the extreme, I started to feel 10x worse here than I did in America until I did away with the societal perception.
I can go back to when I first watched the secret in 2007 and tell you that I started to believe that I can control my life. Yes, I can control what was going on outside of me. When the experimental stages were ongoing, I realized that I can save money, go on trips, see beautiful countries and stop using my childhood blueprint of “not having enough” as an excuse.
A lot of people would say, “what about the poor people in Africa? Bangladesh? Parts of Southeast Asia? What about those paces.” Well, when you’re born into poverty, you don’t know what life is outside of it. You’re born into the “not-enoughedness.” You don’t have the resources (not educationally speaking, either), to escape that lifestyle because you don’t know anything beyond those barriers.”
Look at the Southside of Chicago, for instance. This is a place of desolation and hooliganism, killing each other nightly. Where at? AMERICA! African American children not knowing the difference between right and wrong. Why? Their minds were conditioned at the very beginning when they were born into those impoverished neighborhoods. Mom & dad were out participating in the worst of activities while they were getting bullied at school until that one day….someone came to rescue. Someone who is/was gang affiliated. There’s no other reality. The outlook is as drab as it gets….but how come Serena & Venus Williams were born in the heart of Compton whereas they had to jump on the Tennis courts, ducking bullets that were being shot by rival gangs?
It’s all about conditioning the mind.
