Hello, I'm dr pelè and I believe that you have greatness within you. And the purpose of this conversation is very simple. I want to help you uncover, peel back the cover, expose and remove the things that have been holding you back from achieving the greatness that is within you, from liberating the power that is already within you.
Nothing I'm going to share with you today is brand new, nothing I'm going to be sharing with you. Today is something that you do not know. The difference is not in the knowing it is in the doing. And so we're going to talk about what it is that holds us back from the things we already know we should be doing.
What is it that holds us back from achieving the fantastic and amazing results and potential that we have within. That's what I want to talk with you about now. You may be an executive who works at an organization today and you're feeling a lot of dysfunction amongst your team members or maybe your leadership is forcing you to feel pressure and negative opinions about everything and you just can't move forward.
Or maybe you are an entrepreneur. You have a bright, powerful business idea and you know that the world needs what you have, but you do not know how to take that first step to bring it to the world or you've taken many steps in the past and you've struggled to market and sell this fantastic product of yours that you know if the world could only consume, you know that the world would be a better place for it and yet you've struggled to get it out there.
Well, I'm here to tell you that whether you're an executive or an entrepreneur or an employee or a leader, there is one common challenge that we all face that is stopping us from achieving our greatness and our goals. And that is simply this. Many of us do not know who we are. How can I make such a fantastic statement as you do not know who you are?
What is that? How could that even be possible? Of course you have a name. Right, well, here's the problem. You are not your name, of course. Okay, fine. You have a position in the company.
Well, no, you are not your position or your title. Well, okay, fine. Well you say you have a body, you are physically here. I'm here to tell you, you already know this. You are not your body. This will come and go.
It will pass away. What you are is an energy source that can be tapped to create great things. And I'm here to tell you that if you've struggled in your business or you've struggled in your organization or you've struggled in your life in any way. It always comes down to whether or not you have tapped into that powerful and infinite energy that resides in your own mind.
Now, you may ask why is it that so many people talk about the mind. They talk about mindset, they talked about the fact that we can do anything we want to do. And yet so many of us don't believe it and so many of us who even do believe it, don't implement it and therefore it just becomes a bunch of words and after a while we just go, yeah, yeah, yeah, I don't want to listen anymore.
Well, part of it is because we don't have a picture of the mind, we don't have something that we can hold on to, you know, our mind, it thinks in images, right, if you want to memorize anything, if you want to be fantastic anything, the first thing you need to do is put an image of that thing in your mind and make it stick and once your mind understands the image, it will be able to act upon it.
And so the reason so many of us believe that our minds are the first place to start in any kind of personal development and yet don't take action. The reason is because we don't have a sense of the structure of the mind. We don't have an image and that's what I want to share with you right now is a way of thinking about your mind so that you can begin to actually implement the power of your mind.
Now, I'm going to share with you a very simple image of our mind now, I learned this from bob proctor. Bob proctor, who was one of my mentors, he basically taught this very simple image year in and year out for over 50 years and this image is essentially if you take all of the psychology and the neuroscience that is out there and has been published in volumes and volumes of research, you could boil what we know about the mind into this image and that is we have a conscious mind which is a very small part of our mind by the way and then we have a subconscious mind which is a very large and powerful part of our mind but it is hidden from us.
The only way we can access our subconscious mind is through very specific methods of communication with it and I'm going to share with you how we do that. Now under the subconscious mind is this very small piece called our body meaning our physical presence on this planet. And so what happens is that the conscious mind can communicate with the subconscious mind and then the subconscious mind controls most of what our body does.
So if we can master this image of our mind by understanding what the different pieces do, we will be able to master how we can use this structure to create the actions in the world that produce the results that we seek, see the connection. We start with thinking. We move our thinking into feelings.
Our subconscious mind consumes those feelings over time, adopts them right? And then allows us to actually implement actions and behaviors that produce results in the physical world. So if you want to change any results in your life, you have to program that subconscious mind that powerful, powerful tier of our minds into doing exactly what you wanted to do or feel or become.
And then once you've got that programming sticking, then the subconscious mind will implement the behaviors and the actions that will bring to you whatever you define as success. You know, I have to share with you a very personal story of the very first time I came into contact with my subconscious mind. It was as a child, as a child in the biafran war running around looking for shelter because there was a civil war, a bloody civil war.
People were dying everywhere. Now. Have you ever seen those black and white pictures with the children and the big stomachs and the the the the famished populations. I was one of those children and my mother and I living in refugee camps, didn't know where to find food or how to get away from the constant bombs.
But then you know what happened? My mother did an amazing and very strange thing instead of giving me food. Well, she had none. Instead of giving me shelter or protecting me from the bombs, which she couldn't. She simply sang to me. She would take my name pele and put it into a song and sing to me day in and day out.
She would take my name and put it into a story and tell me stories day in and day out. And the more I heard about these stories and the more I listened to this music with my name in it, the more I forgot about the fear of dying every day, the more I forgot about the hunger and the bombs all went away.
You know what she was doing. She was programming my subconscious mind to focus on the positive, not the negatives around me. My mother showed me that there was a better way, not just by trying to solve the problems in the world, but by teaching my subconscious mind how to view the problems in the world and because I was protected by the power of my subconscious mind, we survived that war music came into my life and I learned one of the most powerful lessons from that experience and that is this seek first your happiness and your success will follow.
You don't have to solve the world's problems. Sometimes you have to start with that thing that makes you happy and what she did to me with the african soup and the songs and the stories that she was sharing with me with the music. What she did. Well, she gave my subconscious mind the programming it required to survive and survive. I did and survive.
We all did. So I want you to know that you have within you power that is untapped. And until you learn how to program that power program, that subconscious mind, it will never be able to work for you to create the results you want at any time in our lives.
Our subconscious mind is implementing actions for us. The question is, are the positive actions that are working for us? Or are they negative actions that are working against us? There's always this back and forth. And until we come into harmony, until we understand this image of our minds and understand how to use repetition and different strategies to implement the right thoughts and beliefs and approaches and and feelings inside our subconscious mind, we will never be able to break through into the world of the success we seek.
You know, so many of us are taught by life and conditioned to believe that the things that make us happy cannot be connected to the things that create profit in our lives. And that couldn't be further from the truth. You see the fact is the things that make us happy.
Those feelings of happiness are related to. The things that our subconscious mind will implement with such power and energy that you will be astonished at the results. If only we could focus on those things and yet the world usually tells us so put away your music or oh put away that thing that you love to do. It's just not relevant here.
Yes, it is even as a transferable skill, it absolutely is because it is the thing that makes you happy. And if you can focus on that thing that makes you happy, you will achieve the profit that you seek. Bring it into the work that you do and you'll see a difference. It certainly changed my life when I finally decided to embrace my music.
The thing that my mother taught me at a very young age that made me happy when I finally embraced my music and brought it into my personal development work, everything changed. And you know why the technology of creating music is exactly the same technology that we need to create indelible images in the subconscious mind when you think of muscle memory and how people master the piano or master the guitar, they do repetition over and over a very specific things.
And it is that repetition that makes it stick in the subconscious mind. And before you know it, the magic happens in which a person who couldn't play an instrument. Now all of a sudden becomes a person who can, right, it's the same thing. It's the same technology in our mind.
It's all about transferring from your thinking into your subconscious mind, the thing that you want to achieve. And then you let your subconscious mind loose into the world to do the heavy lifting for you. So the goal is profitable happiness because profitable happiness is when we find that place of genius our happiness, we begin with that feeling and with those thoughts and we push it into the subconscious mind and we allow the subconscious mind to work with us, not against us in creating the business or health or wealth profit that we're looking for in this world.
So the entire point of this conversation is I want you to recognize that first of all mindset is where you have to start personal development is the very first thing we need to work on before our marketing and before our business success because you know what, you can invent the greatest product in the world, but if your mindset isn't right, it'll just be a great product in your basement which is the sad truth.
So many of us go to our graves with great products in our basements and so I hope that this has impressed upon you the fact that personal development mindset is where we begin, but that's not where we stop. And one of the challenges so many people have is that they say, okay fine, I've been uh you know I've been talking to myself, I've been manifesting, I've been trying to repeat things into my mind and you know I don't know what to do next, nothing is happening.
Well part of it is because you may not have implemented the next step which is you actually do need marketing and sales and all the different business things that you need to implement into the world so that the world can recognize your genius. So not only do we need to work on our mindset and get the personal development and the power and the method of transferring into the power of our subconscious minds working.
Not only do we have to do that, we also need to work on our marketing and our sales and how we tell a story to this world, how we show up. And the third thing that we need to do is we need help, no person is an island. In fact there's an african saying that a fly that does not have a counselor will follow the corpse to the grave.
Now let me explain that basically if you are in the picture, you can't see the frame because you're in the picture, you need to have someone who can see the full picture for you and that's what a mentor does or a coach or an advisor. So mentorship is the third thing that we need to implement in our lives to go from where we are today to where we want to be the first and most important thing is to begin with mindset, don't rush to your solution and your product and how you get it out there.
Start with understanding who you are so that you can actually work with the biology of your mind to make it as effective as humanly possible, then move into your product and how you show up in the world and market that product and then get some mentorship to work with you and see things you can't see, see your blind spots and help you to implement all the way to the success and finish line that you seek.
So I want to invite you to learn more about how to work with mindset, marketing and mentorship to achieve the success you seek, whether you're an executive in a company or the leader of a company or you're an employee in a company or you are an entrepreneur seeking to create the next big thing in the world.
And I invite you to click the button below to either set up a conversation with me so that we can learn more about what you're trying to achieve in the world and we can point you in the right direction or attend one of our events, whether in person or online and learn how you can begin today to become the very best of every single thing you dream. It is possible if only we know who we are, this has been dr. Pelè and I hope that this has been helpful for you.
I look forward to meeting you someday soon and to working with you to be the very best that you can be to find your happiness and implemented in such a way that you produce the profit that you deserve in this world because you deserve profitable happiness all the best.
