Chapter 2 of Thinking Into Results introduces us to the concept of the “knowing/doing gap.”
Bob Proctor starts by relating a few times in which he failed to follow through on instructions and whether given by a parent, employer, or spouse, in each instance though he knew and wanted to follow through, he failed.
It’s because while he consciously knew to perform the task, unconsciously his actions took him along an automatic path of task performance which generated a different and undesirable result.
So, what was the problem?
The problem was that Bob – and virtually everyone else on the planet – has mental programing locked up in their subconscious mind which contradicts their desired outcomes.
This is a critical insight. And what’s even more interesting is that our educational system does not teach us how to change these automatic, albeit undesirable, sub-conscious habits.
Instead, our educational system is designed almost exclusively for students to gather information, memorize it, and prove the accomplishment of these tasks by repeating the information on a quiz or test.
Read, remember, repeat. Are you kidding me?
Getting our hands on information in this day and age is not a problem.
We have an overabundance of information. And most of it is not doing the average individual a bit of good.
What we need to learn is how to properly use the information to change the performance of our routines.
In other words, we have to learn how to change the multitude of habits which exist in our sub-conscious mind.
This is necessary in order to produce actions which produce the results which are in alignment with our goals.
Now that sounds really simple. But if it was that simple, most people wouldn’t be stuck – and yet they are.
Here, Bob is careful to point out that this is because most people are looking to change results by focusing on behavior. That’s the error!
Unless there is a change in the sub-conscious mind so that the old programing is removed and new programing is used to replace it, these types of changes are temporary.
What’s necessary is to consciously identify what needs to change and then to work to make that change at the primary source, the subconscious mind.
See, virtually all of our behaviors are driven by our sub-conscious. More succinctly, the sub-conscious mind controls the actions of body.
To bring it full circle, even though there may be plenty of things that one consciously wants to do, unless the person’s sub-conscious is already in alignment driving one’s actions toward that outcome, the result is going to fall far short of one’s desired aim or goal.
So then, it all comes down to redesigning that section of the sub-conscious mind in which habits are resident – the Paradigm.
A paradigm is the multitude of habits which serve as an individual’s operating system.
This lesson focuses on helping people to identify those habits which they need to eliminate AS WELL AS those habits which they need to install in order to move themselves from their current to their desired reality.
Overall, securing new results through greater awareness and by moving into habitual action is the purpose of this incredible teaching system called Thinking Into Results.
