No matter what field or area of life, when one truly does something well, they make it look EASY. Notice a professional golfer smack a 300 yard drive, a basketball player leap over their opponent for a dunk, an amazing speaker deliver their message, or a Olympic athlete in their given sport. Everything done well is done in a manner that makes it look as if they are performing with ease.
Now lets take the flipside. Imagine a struggling salesperson working every angle to make a sale only to be continually let down, a physically out of shape individual hitting the gym for the first time, or perhaps a nervous schoolteacher giving their first lesson. These individuals may be saying the same words, imitating the exact same actions, and even thinking about the same desired outcome, however, they fail to match the level of performance. While their conscious mind may be prepared for the task, their subconscious system (which regulates the body, works 24 hours a day, balances your steps, and does million other activities at the same time) is not as programmed as the expert.
Playing the piano has blessed me with the knowledge of the working power of the subconscious mind. Any piano player would not be able to consciously understand every note they are playing without the tremendous assistance of the subconscious mind. In fact sometimes it feels like the more you let go and let your subconscious take over, the easier it is!
Therefore, remember this when setting out on your goals. Your method of thinking is the starting point for all achievement. The thoughts and emotions you allow to enter your mind will find their way to your subconscious. The tasks you then embark on will either be filled with ease or burdened with difficulty. Happy Holidays.
