Why certificate is not enough for life?

We achieve a degree. We achieve a certificate. We have lots of formal education. We have stereotype it changes our life. But it is not enough. We want better results. We are wishing to make changes. We know how to change. But we fail to make changes. Why? In this article, I am going to explore the reason and its better solution. 

Our mind navigate behavior. To know about the phenomenon of change, it is better to know about how the mind works. We should know about how the conscious and subconscious mind work. 

What is conscious mind?

The conscious mind involves the activities of awareness. You are reading now. You are sitting now. You are planning to do something. You are aware of your activities and thinkings. You are aware of what is happening around you. This is due to the work of the conscious mind. It can distinguish what is right and wrong. It judges. We interpret something as good, and something as bad. It is due to our conscious mind. It is thinking and educated mind that we can gain knowledge from school, university, etc.  It works with logic and reasoning. It can accept or reject information. The beta level of brain waves is associated with conscious mind.  
What is the subconscious mind?

This mind is very different from a conscious mind. This mind is very powerful but unconscious. It cannot distinguish what is real or imaginary. It is a habitual mind because it accepts what is repeated. When we are at the alpha level, this mind will active. Our feeling, emotions are related to this mind. The thought attached to emotion creates energy which makes the subconscious mind perceive something as real.

Why certificate do not change us?

We gain knowledge from schools, colleges, books, etc. All these are related to the conscious mind. It is a very limited mind. The conscious mind is not directly linked to the result. It does not directly create results. So knowledge gained from school, college, etc cannot change our life. This is why there is no guarantee of success merely with the achievement of certificate. Generally, we know what to do but we do not do it. Knowing only does not bring the result. Because the conscious mind has nothing to do with results. This is the reason why we cannot change our life even though we have lots of formal education. 

What determines our result?

“Once the subconscious mind accepts and idea, it begins to execute it.” 
                                                                                          -Joseph Murphy

Our result can be equated with the subconscious mind. What we impressed in our subconscious mind, expressed in the outside world. This mind is connected with the universe. What we are getting is the result of our subconscious mind. So, if we want to change our result, we must change our subconscious programming. In other words, we must change our paradigm. 

“The reason man may become the master of his own destiny is because he has the power to influence his own subconscious mind.”  -Napoleon Hill

Unless we change our paradigm, we do not change anything. We are wishing to change the world around; we try it for months, years but the result is the same. Nothing changes. Why? Because our paradigm has not changed. So, our knowledge does not matter, paradigms matter. This is the reason why people with little formal education achieve great success in life. Success does not come from education, it comes from paradigm. 

How to change the paradigm?

There are various ways to change the paradigm, one of the best ways is auto-suggestion. 

"AUTO-SUGGESTION is a term which applies to all suggestions and all self-administered stimuli which reach one’s mind through the five senses. Stated in another way, auto-suggestion is self-suggestion. It is the agency of communication between that part of the mind where conscious thought takes place, and that which serves as the seat of action for the subconscious mind.”
                                                          –Napoleon Hill, Think & Grow Rich

Auto-suggestion is the repetition of affirmation with feeling. When we repeat something, it changes our biochemistry. It changes how we see the world. It creates vibration. What we vibrate inside, attracts in external world. So ultimately it changed reality. 

"Your ability to use the principle of autosuggestion will depend, very largely, upon your capacity to concentrate upon a given desire until that desire becomes a burning obsession." -Napoleon Hill

When you do autosuggestion, it is very necessary to feel what you tell. Feeling and emotion can active your subconscious mind. At the initial state, it may seem absurd, our mind tries to resist our autosuggestion. Don't worry. With repetition it becomes natural. And, ultimately it changes our programming of the subconscious mind which creates result what we desire.
