The Power of Self Evaluation
It has always interested me that pschologists, and many other great thinkers from all times state that we only use 10% of our brains full potential. Now if you think about it this is a frightening fact. Think about all the people on Earth today that have hopes, dreams,goals and victories that never get fulfilled. And wonder if everybody operated to their full potential would anybody live a life of uncertainty, poverty, depression and all the other ills that make peoples everyday life a struggle. Think about the 90% of untapped potential within your own mind and imagine what you could give to the world and to yourself if you were just to release a further 10%. That would double your current production.
Now that in itself is a very powerfull thought. If we were to some how find ways of gaining more of our brains potential power what could you do with it? Ask yourselves the question, What in your life would be different if your performance in all aspects of your life were improved by twice the amount that it is now?
Many people who hear these statements think that there is nothing we can do to utilize any more of our potential and that we are just born with our restrictive 10%. Well that has to be completely wrong! Its plainly obvious that different people perform better or worse than others in all our various human skills.
Its starting to become clear to me that that we are only limited by ourselves, and the untouched part of our life does not have to remain inactive.We can begin to use more of the God given potential we have if we are willing to learn and utilize a few home truths. Why are we the way we are? Has anybody asked themselves this? I certainly hadn't untill recently.
During each waking hour our actions and statements reflect the way we feel about ourselves, this is whats known as our Self Image. This is very important to the way we perform and if we have a bad self image we are obviously not going to function to our full potential.
Before I go any further I want you to understand that I am not claiming to be a psychologist or an excellent personal developement trainer, I am just interested in this subject and have read many theories on how to combat the power of our self evaluating image if negative. Have you ever really examined the way you feel about yourself, why you feel that way, and would you want to feel any different? Is it really that important? Well, you could argue that it isnt if you are satisfied with everything you do. But if you want to chage your life, actions, acomplishments and future, learning about your self image is vital.
As maturing individuals, we take our self-images and whether we know it or not shape our whole lives around it, we become a product of our own self evaluation. This happens because our subconscious mind, the 90% we dont control,accepts what our conscious mind is telling it. Therefore creating the outcome that we have already given to ourselves.
Now try to stay with me here! Because of this it is of enormous benefit to us all that we can use our conscious mind to improve our 90% of untapped potential just by mentally "seeing" ourselves doing what we want to be doing. Now this isnt just goal setting, we've all heard the self help experts bang on about setting goals to achieve greater potential but in reality thats just half of the equation.
What I have been trying to do lately is to revaluate my self image in order for my sub conscious mind to act apon what my self image is creating. With the hope that the outcome will be unleashed potential that I'd only dreamed about before becoming reality. I must say that it does not take much time to notice a diferance especially in your overall well being. feeling good about yourself can only help achieve much more.
Its obvious really isn't it ! But I bet most of you out there would benefit from the following Self-Evaluation exercise.
This is a generalisation that you can fit into any area of your life whether it be personal, work related or other. I have personally found it to benefit my home business life because the success of that boils down to you alone, there is no-one to back you up.
Ask yourself these questions:
1.If I could have any job or posotion, what would it be?
2.If I could live my life again, what changes would I make?
3.What has been my greatest achievement in life and what was it that got me there?
4.What are my greatest strengths?
5. Are my weaknesses fixable, are they just an image I have created?
6.What has been my greatest disapointment?
7.What will make me actually achieve more success?
8. What is my main goal or purpose at this time?
Answer these as honestly as you can, think about the answers carefully and this will help you start using that untouched potential. Results will come quickly if your self image is improved.
I am going to leave you now on those thoughts, thanks for reading
