The Power Within!

Posted: May 15, 2013 in OPINION

Do you ever wonder why some people seem to “have it all” and others struggle all the time? We always see others in our peer group doing better than us. At least I do if ohers don’t. This boils out my/our self esteem and casts doubt on our abilities and or potential.

Is there anything that can be done or is it just fate?  While at it, it’s amazing to note that everybody has #ThePowerWithin themselves to achieve whatever they desire. Our minds are a powerful tool that when put to good use can bring us happiness, success and whatever we desire.

So how do we use that “Power Within us?”

The mind has two parts, the conscious and the subconscious. It can be compared to an iceberg. What’s above the water is the conscious mind (about 10%) and what’s below the water is the subconscious mind. The conscious mind carries out instructions given to it by the subconscious mind, we are not even aware of this happening. Every action that the conscious mind performs has originated in the subconscious mind. 

When you are learning to drive a car, there are many actions to take. You need to push the pedals, change gear, watch the rear view mirror etc. This can be challenging and requires a lot of conscious attention. Once you learn to drive however, it becomes natural to you. The constant repetition of changing gears, moving feet etc, has been repeated so many times that the subconscious mind lets you carry it out without you even thinking about it consciously.

Or the computer keyboard! You have to literally look for letters when you are using for the 1st time. But when used to it, you can even type with your eyes closed. Or better still, if I went to your house, I’ll struggle moving around in darkness, but you almost do everything in that house whether or not there is light. The arrangement of that house is in your mind. You can call me from Uganda and direct me where something ‘could be’ or is.

A baby learning to walk has had no influence to make them believe that they can’t achieve. They get up to walk, fall down, get up again, fall down, up again until they finally walk. They don’t fall down the first time and say “I can’t do this”….

To unleash #ThePowerWithin, start speaking to your subconscious mind that you are able.. that you have what it takes.. that you have the power with.

Do it again and again until it becomes so natural for you to succeed!

    Amen. That’s a good word. Thank you.

  2. Blake says:

    This doesn’t make sense. Sounds more like the same stuff we got from “The Secret.” Why not focus on hard work, discipline and trusting in God to succeed in life?

    The kind of approach described in your article is what is misleading many Kenyans into joining all kinds of bizarre clubs, witchcraft rituals and prosperity churches – imagining that there’s some mystical way to achieve material and relationship success. There is no “Power within us”.

    Only two kinds of spiritual powers exist in the universe – God’s power and Satan’s power. And the devil can only do what God allows him to do.
