Chapter 3 Master Mind
Our mind is like a big computer, in fact, the biggest and most powerful computer there is. But we never use to get what we want. We just use it for rudimentary or seemingly unnecessary tasks.
Our mind has two parts one is the conscious and the other is the subconscious.
Our conscious mind is like the user of the computer and our subconscious mind is like the hardware of the computer. The hardware can perform any task that the user inputs in the computer. But the only available data is the user provided data. if the data is faulty no way the result is going to be correct.
Therefore, we must input correct data to the subconscious mind that will give you the correct result. It can be affirmations, changing of mindset or practicing belief or keeping faith in oneself.
The author says that great men and women have developed great and unshakable faith in their abilities to overcome overwhelming obstacles in their lives. Therefore they are able to achieve anything in their lives even if it seems impossible to the world.
