Maximising Your Genius Mind and Going BIG With Your Goals


There are big benefits of working towards big goals – amazing happiness, stretching your ability, increased passion, more energy, infectious enthusiasm, amazing achievement and actually creating the life you dream of! People who achieve great things tend to do so because they are powered by great dreams, while those who fail to achieve their fullest potential are more likely to NOT be ‘big thinkers’. You have got to think big to achieve big.

Every business should have at least one big goal, and every person within the company must know what that goal is and what it means for them as individuals as well as the business as a whole. And on the same level, each individual should be aware of at least one big goal (preferably one in each area of your life) and maintain an emotional connection to that goal.  If everyone believes in the goal, then that makes it even more powerful. The method for choosing your big goal for a business is the same as the method for choosing the big goal for an individual person. American President John F. Kennedy set the big goal of being in space in 1961. It was a dream and it had a deadline. He said, “I regard that decision as among the most important decisions that will be made during my incumbency in the office of the Presidency.” John F. Kennedy’s famous “Moon Speech” the following year was brilliant, and it made Americans fully aware that they were all chasing the same dream.

You have no idea what you are capable of. Can you pause now and just consider what you THINK you might be capable of. Think BIG. REALLY BIG. Then double it and you’re getting close. But in reality, you’re not even warm. WE HAVE TO PUSH BEYOND OUR LIMITS BEFORE WE FIND OUR LIMITS. Living with unused ability can be likened to having giant wings but not realizing that we have them—let alone what they can be used for. It’s only if we attempt to fly that we realize we have wings. And it’s only when we start using our wings that we realize we CAN FLY.

When you stop and think about the process of being successful in anything, you can actually see that every time you have achieved something worthy, you had to expand beyond your comfort zone.  Winning occurs OUTSIDE our comfort zone.  Now this doesn’t mean that you need to constantly stay outside of your comfort zone, but it does mean that you do need to venture out there often!  And setting big goals actually PULLS you out of your comfort zone – encouraging you to extend your comfort zone outwards, increasing your skills in multitude of different areas, and allowing you to achieve your dreams.

Today we are going to explore the idea of Using Your Genius Mind to Identify the Steps You Need to Take to Achieve Your Dreams.  This topic follows the discussion of the past week, where we’ve been looking at Maximising Your Mental Potential through the process of Setting Powerful Goals.

If you’ve been taking the Action Steps that have been suggested in the posts, you will have created your Bucket List of 100 Things To Do Before You “Kick The Bucket”.

Once you have identified you Big Goals, you need to chunk it down into smaller, more manageable steps. Take the example of my family trip to Italy. That in itself could be seen as quite a big, scary

But if I chunk it down a little, I could break it down into smaller steps by saying to myself, “Well, to get to Italy, I will need to:”

  1. Decide what dates we would like to fly
  2. Decide on an airline to fly with
  3. Get a quote of cost associated with the trip
  4. Decide on which villas we want to stay at, and what places we want to visit
  5. Organize time off from work
  6. Save up the money
  7. Book the flights
  8. Book the accommodation
  9. Decide on what type of clothes we will need to take
  10. Learn some of the language.

And that’s just a few things that came to mind straight up. Now I need to decide which of these steps I need to do first, and get into action. It is SO important never to leave the site of a decision, without having taken some kind of action. You can dream all day and all night—but if you never take any action, you will never get any action! You can’t do everything at once, but you CAN do something right now. I suggest you focus your biggest effort on your BIG goal. Most winners have a dream and work on it. They have a priority. Focus on one thing at a time, your dream. The focus and direction of your front wheel will relate to the results you experience later in your back wheel. Where you steer is up to you.

So your Action Step for today:  For every Big Goal that you create, expect to come up with 5 to 10 smaller steps that you can take, that will move you closer to your Big Goal.  And then take action, immediately.

What’s the Difference Between the Conscious and Subconscious Minds?

The focus of this blog post is to maximize human potential by teaching simple skills to better utilize the amazing powerhouse that is the human mind. First though, we need to understand exactly what is the conscious and subconscious mind. And this is not a simple question to answer!

The conscious and the subconscious minds are merely two separate spheres of activity within your brain. Your conscious mind is the
rational or logical mind, whereas your subconscious mind is the ‘automatic’ part of the brain than operates below the level of your conscious awareness. Without any conscious effort on your part, your heart keeps pumping blood, your blood vessels expand and contract as your blood pressure changes according to the activities the body is engaged in and the emotions you experience. These are just two examples of the multitude of functions that may seem as if they ‘just happen’, but are actually the result of your subconscious mental processes, hard at work. Most people are not aware that they even have a subconscious mind, although they access it multiple times each day just to survive.

Your subconscious mind is very powerful and makes up a great percentage of your mental processes, even though you are unaware of it. Your subconscious mind is easily impressed upon by the thoughts and mental focus of the conscious mind. Your subconscious does not reason—it simply reacts to and follows the instructions and guidance of the conscious mind. Your subconscious can be described as a bed of soil that accepts any kind of seed, whether good or bad. Your mental thoughts are active; they are seeds in the garden of your subconscious mind. Negative, destructive thoughts that may be the result of long term anxiety or depression, continue to work negatively in your subconscious. Sooner or later, these thoughts surface to take shape as an outer experience that corresponds with or mirrors their content. Therefore the old saying, “Be careful what you wish for”, actually has some firm foundation in modern psychology.

Stay tuned for my next post tomorrow to take another step into this complex topic…
