The Influence We Have Over Our Kids
Updated: Oct 22, 2020
Aristotle once said, "Give me a child until he is 7 and I will show you the man". Aristotle knew that the subconscious mind is in control before the age of 7. This is for good reason, it is so they can learn the rules of their "tribe" and society. The subconscious has a primary goal of safety, and because of this children will mimic what others around them do so they can fit in. The best investment you can make for yourself and your kid is an investment into yourself. Look at your daily actions, and think about if you would want your child, to mimic these actions. Beyond your actions look at what other influences will be in their life. What kinds of media are they watching? The subconscious mind, cannot tell the difference between real life and fiction. If they are watching TV shows, or movies this will impact their lives. Many TV shows and movies, if not all, are loaded with negative subliminal messages.
There are ways to reverse and reprogram the subconscious, so we are not stuck with our limiting beliefs and self-sabotage. Understanding the subconscious mind is extremely important if you want to reprogram yourself. We are not taught about the subconscious and how it works, and this is really why so many people are struggling in their lives. The subconscious is the most powerful part of our brain even as adults and it does influence our conscious decisions. My coaching sessions are built around understanding the subconscious mind, and explaining how to make it work for you instead of against you. Please reach out to me if you want to invest in yourself. Together we can make the world a better place for our kids.
