You Are Extraordinary! – Identifying Your Special Talents and Abilities

December 16, 2009 2 comments

In 1967, Dr. Thomas A. Harris, a practicing psychiatrist in California, wrote a groundbreaking book that was destined to become a best-seller. On its jacket cover, it is described as “a fresh, sensible, increasingly popular approach to the problems that every human being faces every day in his relations with himself and others. Transactional Analysis,” it explains, “is a new break-through, one that confronts the individual with the fact that he is (we all are) responsible for what happens in the future, no matter what has happened in the past.” The title of the book is,  I’M OK — — YOU’RE OK.

The practice of writing your goals daily drives them deep into your subconscious mind. Whenever you program a goal or a problem into your subconscious mind in this way and then release it, it is transferred to your super conscious mind, which goes to work to manifest the goal, drawing on all of your knowledge and experience as well as all of the intelligence, ideas and knowledge that has ever existed or that will ever exist.

The affirmation process – clearly writing your goal(s) using a positive statement in the present tense and ensuring that it is personal (i.e. it must commence with the word “I”) – is another powerful way to imprint your goals on your subconscious mind. The subconscious mind will then pass your goal(s) to your super conscious mind, which will automatically and continuously solve every problem and offer solutions to every challenge on the way to your goal(s). It will attract the people and the resources required to achieve your goal(s). Read more…
