To bring order and understanding to your mind, you must have an image to work with. Since your mind is the unseen part of your personality, you must engage your imagination to build this image. On the right you’ll see a stick person.
The stick person, like all other ideas, is extremely simple. Do not allow the apparent simplicity to deceive you, for the stick person concept can reveal a lot of possibilities.
Your ability to:
The Conscious Mind or Educated Mind
This is part of you that thinks and reasons. Your free will lies here. This is the part of your mind that will decide how much money you want to earn.
The conscious mind can accept or reject any idea. No person or circumstance can cause you to think about thoughts or ideas you do not choose. The “thoughts” you choose eventually determine the results in your life.
All pain, pleasure, or limitation either originated in the conscious mind or was accepted uncritically from an outside source.
This part of you is certainly the most magnificent; it is the power center. It functions in every cell of your body.
Every thought your conscious mind chooses to accept, this part must accept … it has no ability to reject.
This part of you operates in an orderly manner. “By Law,” expresses itself through you, in feelings and actions.
Any thought you consciously choose to impress upon the subconscious over and over becomes fixed in this part of your personality.
Fixed ideas will then continue to express themselves without any conscious assistance until they are replaced.
Fixed ideas are more commonly referred to as habits.
The subconscious mind is the God-like part of you, referred to as spirit. It knows no limits, save those you consciously choose.
Although this is the most obvious part of you, the material medium, it is merely the instrument of the mind, or the house you live in.
The thoughts or images that are consciously chosen, impressed upon the sub-conscious (which is in every cell of your body), must move your body into action.
The actions you are involved in determine your results.
How will your life change?
It will change when you become aware of your current paradigm.
T = Thoughts
F = How to Feel
A = Are you going to take Action?
R = Results… If you are not getting the results you desire then you must alter your thoughts.
This piece can be hard to grasp… re-read this section over and over to ingrain it into your subconscious mind.
How is your attitude?
Your attitude and your potential go hand in hand
Does your Mom or Dad say… “You better fix your attitude?”
A bad attitude can be a dreaded disease. It causes a closed mind and a dark future. When our attitude is positive and conductive to growth, the mind expands and the progress begins.
A person’s attitude impacts their relationships, colors their view of failure, and defines their approach to success. Attitude can make or break you.
In The Winners Edge Denis Waitley stated, “The real leaderships in business, in the professional community, in education, in government, and in the home also seems to draw upon a special cutting edge that separates them from the rest of society.
The winner’s edge is not in a gifted birth, in a high IQ, or in talent. The winner’s edge is in the attitude, not aptitude.
Unfortunately, I think to many people resist that notion. They want to believe that talent alone is enough.
Ultimately you are the only one that can determine what you will think and how you will act.
I challenge you to keep working on your attitude!
How Is Your Self-Image?
The language you use in positive self-talk will create a new reality
Your perception of who you are and what your value is with your family and your community will change in your mind.
This chain of new positive thought introduces a different thought pattern.
Ultimately, through daily practice of positive self-talk, you will achieve greater results.
Self-image sets the boundaries of individual accomplishment
Sit back and visualize… see yourself how you want to see yourself living your life.

How Do You Shift Your Paradigm?
Paradigms are a multitude of habits. In most cases, these habits aren’t even originated by you, yet they guide almost every move you make.
They affect the way you eat, the way you walk, even the way you talk.
When you understand how to change your paradigm, you will express yourself to a brand new world.
At age 14, Bobby Jones played in the National Amateur but came home a loser.
Bobby, you’re good enough to win that tournament,” Grandpa Bart told him. “But you’ll never win until you can control that temper of yours.”
Jones knew his grandpa was right, but it was seven years later before he won a tournament. “Bobby was fourteen years old when he mastered the game of golf,” Grandpa Bart said “But he was twenty-one before he mastered himself”.
