This week brings us to the end of my first month of the MKE program. We have been reading Scroll I from ‘The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino’ and on Sunday we will move onto Scroll II. I am looking forward to seeing what Scroll II has in store.
We were asked to note down one sentence from Scroll I to carry forward and read with the second Scroll. The sentence I chose was “I form new habits and become their slave.”
What does this mean? In Scroll I we learn that we have habits (or patterns) and our habits are not always “good” habits. It is our “bad” habits that stop us from fulfilling our true potential. So, how do we form “good” habits to override our “bad” habits? Well, lucky for us only a habit can subdue another habit. So, by creating a NEW “good” habit and becoming its slave we override our bad habits which bring us closer to our true desire in life.
Overriding a “bad” habit is not an easy task, one must discipline themselves to stay true to the new “good” habit.
What is our NEW “good” habit that Scroll I is teaching us? It is about reading the same passage for 30 days, 3 times a day BUT the most important part is when you read it of a night before bed, you MUST read it aloud, and your reading must be the LAST thing you do before retiring to sleep. WHY? Because our subconscious mind is ALWAYS working, 24 hours a day, 7 days a
week. When we are awake, asleep, daydreaming, it is ON and working ALL the time. It is particularly important to be feeding our subconscious mind with good & positive thoughts.
Another interesting fact I have learnt about our subconscious mind is that you can ‘trick’ it to believe anything, and the most effective way to do this is to read aloud. What you say out loud is believed by your subconscious mind. Therefore by reading out load right before you retire to bed is feeding your subconscious mind with what you want it to manifest.
Read those affirmation cards, goals, dreams out loud BEFORE bed and with enthusiasm and watch your subconscious mind go to work. What you think about you bring about!
