If you’ve been even remotely conscious for the last 19 years you’ve no doubt heard about the book, The Secret. You may have even watched the movie, attended a seminar or purchased the sequel, The Power – all written by Rhonda Byrne. One of the reasons this book was so popular is because there is such a deep desire and need in our society for personal and professional change. If you live in a Capitalist society it makes this desire for improvement even more prominent. Do more. Get more. Be more.
If you read the book, practiced the teachings and applied them to your life – you probably expected there to be a difference, a change or some kind of improvement to your finances, relationships, or health and wellness. Were you disappointed to find that the long-lasting changes you were hoping for didn’t transpire? Fear not because you are amongst the majority of people who did not and will not ever achieve positive results based on the “law of attraction.“
Since so many of us think that what we can rationalize, reason, or think about is how we govern our behavior (and ultimately our lives), it is important to note the difference between the subconscious and the conscious parts of our brain. The conscious part of our brains is where we gather information. The subconscious is what is referred to as the “executor” – think of it as the root or source place of decision-making. It’s also the place where our programming is located. Where we find our programming is the only place where we can truly affect behavior – in the subconscious. To remember the difference between the subconscious and the conscious, envision this: the conscious part of our brain gathers information and the subconscious part of our brain makes the decisions.
Knowing now the difference between the conscious and the subconscious, does it make sense that if we want to experience long-lasting change in our lives, that we would attempt to achieve results by accessing and focusing on the “information-gathering” part of our brains only? In order to create and experience the changes we want in our lives, we have to be able to tap into the decision-maker – our subconscious.
John Assaraf, one of the top keynote speakers and featured experts in the hit movie, The Secret explains the reason why 99% of people will never achieve positive results based on the law of attraction. As John states on his website, it is…. “because they think positively, but they have unconscious beliefs, habits and possibly values that are not in line with each other.” At Blueprint for Changes we take this one step further and direct your attention to what happens in the subconscious, emotional part of your brain and how that affects your behavior to engage in long-lasting change. Or not.
Most programs designed for personal growth and development teach us how to become passionate about our dreams, set goals, and provide us with methods for reaching our goals. These methods are delivered without accessing the part of our brains where real change takes place. The Blueprint for Changes program takes the most direct route to change in your life by consistently accessing the structures in the subconscious that need to be stimulated to create alternate, more desirable behaviours (change!).
The reason why the law of attraction doesn’t work for the majority (99%) of the people who practice the principles of this law is because in and of itself, it is incomplete. No amount of thinking, engaging in repetition of “words”, or writing down your goals and/or dreams will bring you real and long-lasting results and improvements in your life (changes). Chances are you already know this because you have experimented with these methods in the past. I know I have and any changes or improvements I experienced were temporary at best. Then I moved on to the next best thing because I was (and still am) so interested in self-improvement and success in life. Basically I wanted results.
In order to receive different results from our actions we need to take a new approach and discontinue doing what we’ve always done thinking that this time the outcome will be different (however we rationalize it in our minds).
In the weeks and months to come we will be posting regular articles that will provide you with more insights into the Blueprint for Changes program; who it can help and how you can experience the best benefits from it.
