Perception is Reality

by: Josh Bryant

A picture of Popcorn Sutton’s White Lightning ain’t West “By God” Virginia’s best moonshine, a road map is not a map and menu is not a meal.

Regardless, people often confuse their perceptions with facts.

When you are donating money to charity, your perception is either: it is an expense or an investment into someone else’s future.

Here is the bottom line: fact is reality (giving to charity in this case), your perception is (expense or investment).

Most people operate from their perceptions, which is often a delusional interpretation of facts.

Great champions know this and use it to their advantage!

Programming Perceptions

Successful people make decisions based on facts, not feelings. The caveat is great champions use their perceptions of reality to mentally program themselves for success.  

The successful mindset realizes the conscious mind operates best with fact, but the subconscious mind can be effectively programmed with perceptions.  

The subconscious mind is highly suggestible, it is your personal built-in servomechanism and does not bother to differentiate fact from your perceptions. This built-in personal assistant does not know what is right and wrong, moral and immoral. 

Your self-image is your subconscious mind’s master—it is a moral issue for you to behave consistently with how you perceive yourself, so if you view yourself as too poor to paint and too proud to whitewash, your subconscious mind will make sure its master is not a liar.

Irish New Thought Minister, the late, Joseph Murray, said the following:

“The law of the subconscious mind works for good and bad ideas alike. This law, when applied in a negative way, is the cause of failure, frustration, and unhappiness. However, when your habitual thinking is harmonious and constructive, you experience perfect health, success, and prosperity.”

You Create Your Reality

Whether the object of your perceptions is real or false, you attain the same results.

Murphy likens the process to hypnotic suggestion and said, “What do you believe about yourself, life, and the universe? It is done unto you, as you believe.”  Napoleon Hill called it the “Law of Hypnotic Rhythm”. 

Success comes from developing a plan for turning over your goal to your subconscious mind by creating a mental movie of the desired end and feeling its reality. Do this often, do it vividly and then set process goals; voila, your perception then becomes fact!

Here are a dozen ways to program your subconscious mind for success:

  1. Prayer
  2. Focus on gratitude
  3. Mental movies 
  4. Focus on empowering beliefs
  5. Positive affirmations 
  6. Mediation 
  7. Create a brain trust 
  8. Adopt a growth mindset
  9. Pick friends and partners wisely 
  10. The right self-talk
  11. Hypnosis 
  12. Use binaural beats

Final Thoughts

The conscious mind deals in facts and the subconscious mind in perceptions of facts; with no action taken, this creates a dichotomy of cognitive dissonance. By using proactive subconscious mind programming  strategies, you will create a harmonious union that enables you to become the superman or superwoman you were created to be!
