How to Understand and Utilize the Three Servants of Success (Universal Mind)

“It is a psychological law that whatever we wish to accomplish, we must impress on the subjective or subconscious mind.”
-Orison Swett Marden

Okay, so last week, I talked about the conscious and subconscious mind. In this post, you’ll learn about the third mind and how you can use all through three to your benefit.
So, what's this Universal Mind?  

The Super-Conscious Mind
This is otherwise referred to as the "God Mind", the one that converts thoughts into reality. It is the realm of all knowledge and wisdom but only few know how to voluntarily access it. It's this mind that has brought into reality everything that you see happening in your life and around you. It is the highest level of the three minds that, when accessed can provide solutions to the most pressing issues.

How to Understand and Utilize the Three Servants of Success

“It is a psychological law that whatever we wish to accomplish, we must impress on the subjective or subconscious mind.”
-Orison Swett Marden

In my previous post, I shared two mind insights which I learned from a Mind Training Course (after my apologies of course). One of the comments on that post (from one of my loyal readers) suggested that I elaborate more on how we can realize the full power of our minds. So, the purpose of this post is to give you a sneak peak of how you can utilize your mind and the dimensions it exists in.
I said sneak peak because I’m actually working on a project (which you, my readers will see in a couple of weeks) and this post is part of it. By the way, I suggest you leave everything else and read this because this is a pretty long post (over 1,000 words).
The mind is just like the human being. The typical human is made up of three parts- the spirit, soul and the body. Well, so is the mind.
The few people that have discovered this fact and used it have learned how to completely take control of their world. We were created with the full awareness of this power and these servants of success and everything was under our control.

Two Lessons from Mind Gurus

“Knowledge is learning something everyday. Wisdom is letting go of something everyday.”
-Zen Proverb

 First of all, my sincere apologies to my blog readers. For the past three weeks, I've been off the blogosphere due to urgent projects and exams. Despite this fact, my blogging friends have really made development in their blog content and I'm really impressed. This means I've got a lot to catch up on.  
 Okay, in those three weeks of no blogging, I did something fulfilling and I'll be sharing the results with you. I stumbled on a Mind Training Course online which didn't catch my fancy at first. Well, because it had to do with the mind, I registered. After two weeks, what did I get in return? A highly empowered and knowledgeable human being. I feel good right now, seriously.

Are You an Obsessive Fan or a Strategic Player?

How to Win the Games of Life
"All stars have a miserable beginning."
- Bishop David Oyedepo

If you're a student of science, you'll know that stars don't just pop out and shine from nowhere. A star is actually a mixture of unattractive gases which combine and form that meaningful thing you see at night. We really don't care about where they came from or how they're made. All we care about at that time is looking at them, wondering how they shine so bright and compare them with the other stars we see.

Just like these, we have our "earthly" stars that we look up at and compare with other stars. We grow to become their fans and watch their every move. The moment something goes wrong and they stop shining, we're the first to know.

Excerpts From Great Minds- What Does Twain Mean?

"Courage is the resistance to fear, mastery of fear- not absence of fear."
-Mark Twain.

You can read previous posts on Excerpts From Great Minds here.

Many of us have related being courageous with fearlessness but this quote proves this relationship wrong. Being courageous doesn't necessarily mean that you have no fear but that you recognize your fear. Trying to prove that you have no fear will only make you ignorant of your actual fears.

What's the cause of your fear?

Are You Nurturing Your Production Capability?

Nurture Your Production Capability
"Make every thought, every fact, that comes into your mind pay you a profit. Make it work and produce for you. Think of things not as they are but as they may be. Don't merely dream but create!"
- Robert Collier

"Use what you have to get what you want"- This is a popular quote that has been misused, misunderstood and underutilized by many people, including me. Society has made us believe that in order to make a name for ourselves, we have to follow the crowd and do what they do. This gives us the illusion of living the life when in actual sense, we're on the same bus with millions of others who are doing the same thing we do, using the same resources we use and heading for the same destination. When the journey finally ends, there will be no room for significance and this snaps us back to reality.

Excerpts From Great Minds- What Does Goethe Mean?

"To have more, you must first be more."
- Johann Goethe

This is the second part of the Excerpts from Great Minds series. You can read that of Socrates here.

I love this quote from Goethe and I wonder what his source of inspiration was. When I first read it, a picture came to my mind: I saw a small tea cup asking for the same amount of content as that of a jug. How possible is that?
The important thing the tea cup didn't realize is that it was limited.

Are you a tea cup asking to be a jug?

Be The First To Know That You Are Unique

"The person you see is the person you will be."
- Jim Cathcart

A few days ago, my brother and I were just chatting about how we missed those days when we were young with no responsibilities. We had nothing to worry about and had lots of childhood friends to play with. It was then that our family doctor came to my mind. His family were close friends with ours and there was a name my dad always called him which was peculiar to him alone. Whenever they meet or speak over the phone, he'd say "nobody like you". I never really knew why he gave our doctor that name, but I always wondered what it meant.

Excerpts From Great Minds- What Does Socrates Mean?

"An unexamined life is not worth living."
- Socrates

Hmmm... This quote sounds kind of harsh, right? I don't think anyone likes to hear that they're worthless. But, in the actual sense, I don't think it really means that.

Personal development gurus always talk about separating time to do some self examination. The reason for this is simply to know what you're made up of (spiritually, mentally, psychologically, etc.). I'm not talking about purpose here but just self knowledge. What do you have on the inside of you and what can you offer to the society? 

Worth simply means value. You only regard something as valuable if it's of use to you.
Take this scenario as an example:

A New Year Theme- Do You Have One?

“Your problem is to bridge the gap between where you are now and the goals you intend to reach.”
- Earl Nightingale

It seems like just yesterday when we celebrated 2011 as a new year, how time flies. It feels good to know that we passed through and experienced all the joy, troubles and challenges and now have the opportunity to say goodbye to all that and start anew. Like this year, we start every other year expectant and hopeful that the year would be the best year ever. As we know, this is not how the year always turns out to be.

Every year comes with a couple of life assignments for you to take home. These assignments present their own form of trials but your job is to complete and present them at the end of the year for assessment.

How did you do in your previous assignment? Did you achieve all you set out to do?

As for me, the answer to the above question is no, but I had a pretty good grade. It's a ritual for us as achievers to set New Year resolutions for ourselves. In 2011, mine didn't live to see the first of February. Why?
