Do you know how to use the power of your subconscious mind to create success for yourself as a woman entrepreneur? Are you aware that your mind is capable of doing absolutely incredible feats? Your subconscious mind, in itself, is a powerful force to be reckoned with. If you want to revolutionize your business and create tremendous success, you need to change the way you think and the way you learn. In this post, learn exactly how to harness the power of your subconscious mind to create massive success for yourselves in the business world.
“All of us have our own inner fears, beliefs, opinions. These inner assumptions rule and govern our lives. A suggestion has no power in and of itself. its power arises from the fact that you accept it mentally.”
Use The Power of Subconscious Mind
What exactly is our subconscious mind anyway?
Thought you might not be aware of it, our subconscious is an important part of us. If you were to be compared to an electronic device, your subconscious mind would be the supercomputer.
It is the place where all your thoughts and underlying beliefs are formed.
So if you’re wondering why you do the things you do and say the things you say, this is the culprit. Your subconscious mind does a lot of complex tasks, so this means that if we want to maximize our full potential then we need to know how to harvest its true power.

How does your subconscious mind affect you?
if your subconscious mind is responsible for your underlying thoughts then this is incredibly useful.
That means that everything you’ve ever done and every experience you’ve had in your life and your business is stored there. So if you’ve had multiple negative business experiences then these events all contribute to how we think about ourselves, our entrepreneurial abilities and how we view other people.
Think about it. Have you ever tried to move forward with a business decision yet find yourself consistently standing in your own way?
This can drive you crazy because you can’t seem to figure out why you’re doing this. One big reason could be because, deep down, in your subconscious mind, you’re scared.
A part of you has learned that every time you try something new you seem to fail. So why even bother?
You’ve gotten so used to listening to this message and running on automatic, that it feels impossible to break free.
You find yourself stuck.

Why is repetition important to change the way you think in the long run?
Simply put, repetition creates a habit – positive or negative. The more you do something and the more you think about something the harder it is to stop.
This is actually great news because if we start to think positive, uplifting thoughts over and over and over again it becomes a part of the subconscious mind.
While I was still competing in Bible Quiz Competitions I would do mental exercises. Every day, for one minute, I would think to myself “I’m the best quizzer”. I would think it, I would sometimes say it and I’d even go as far as visualizing myself winning.
Though I didn’t know it at the time, I was actually programming this information into my supercomputer. I was letting it know that this was an underlying belief that it should obey, and it did.
I’ve won more quiz competitions than I can count and have bought home more medals and trophies than my poor mom has the space for.
When you learn to master the way you think you begin to intentionally program your mind the way you want to.
You could effectively get more clients, and close far more business deals that were once seemingly outside your reach.
But how do you do this? How do you use your subconscious mind to become a successful female entrepreneur?
1 Identify what you want
If you want to change the way you think at the subconscious level you need to know exactly what you want. Vague words such as business success and profitability mean nothing because those things vary from person to person.
Make it specific and more importantly, make it possible. Try not to wish that you could teleport as that isn’t possible…yet.
For example, as an online entrepreneur, you might want to increase visits to your website by 10% each year. It’s best to focus on that.
Instead of wanting a million things all at once, pick one very specific goal (that you’re having trouble attaining or you need help with) and focus on that.

2 Figure out the underlying beliefs
What are the underlying beliefs (or limiting beliefs) you have that are preventing you from achieving this goal?
Have an honest conversation and intimate conversation with yourself. Help your subconscious mind see what your conscious mind already knows.
For example, your goal might be to increase client retention by 7% but clients keep leaving right after their first purchase.
Sit down and ask yourself what beliefs could possibly be standing in your way. Is your idea of retaining clients way too difficult to attain, at least to you?
Have you had so many negative experiences with your clients that you don’t even want to retain them anyway?
Or, is your hidden fear of rejection actually preventing you from putting your best foot forward?
You might need a coach to help you figure this out.
3 Start the reprogramming
There are many exercises that I use in the coaching process to help clients reprogram their subconscious mind, but I’ll talk about the main one here.
Throughout the day our minds operate in different states of awareness. Some of these states help our minds to receive information.
The state that we want to use is called the Alpha State, so 15 minutes before going to bed, try the following exercise:-
- Find a quiet place to sit or lie down
- Gently close your eyes and start by taking a deep breath in
- Breathe in for 3 seconds, hold for 3 seconds, then exhale for 3 seconds.
- At this stage, your mind is more “open” to receiving information.
- Mentally make a request to your subconscious. It could be a positive affirmation or goal that you want to achieve.
- Visualize yourself having accomplished the goal and make it as real as you possibly can. Feel the emotions, look at the colours, see the people around you.
- Continue doing this for the next 15 minutes.
- Once you’re done with the exercise you can drift off to sleep.
- Do this once a day, every day for the next 60 days.
4 Give yourself permission
Success is open to everyone. Though that is the truth not many of us actually become successful. Why is that? It’s because we don’t give ourselves permission to have it.
Instead of running on autopilot all the time, begin by giving yourself permission to be successful.
Tell yourself that “it’s okay to be successful”, “I’m making this happen with everything I do”, and “it’s perfectly okay to want to have a great life”.
Give yourself permission to be happy, to explore and to try new avenues for business growth.
The more permission you give yourself the more determined your subconscious mind becomes because it wants to catch up to this reality you’ve created.
You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe you can achieve, you most definitely will. Click To Tweet
5 Surround yourself with positive reinforcement
In my room, hanging on the wall are two (soon to be four) quotes. One says “you got this”, and the other one says “this is the sign you’ve been waiting for”.
Each morning after I wake up, they are the first things I see apart from my bible.
You need to surround yourself with things, people and experiences that are positive. These act as reinforcements and remind your brain of what you’re working towards.
Take it one step further and clean up your personal and online life. Remove everything from your space that doesn’t serve you and unfollow every negative person.
Fill your house, your office and your timeline with inspirational quotes, and uplifting/gospel music. Ensure that your environment is a place that encourages growth and success.
After all, you are what you surround yourself with.
Speak your massive success into being
One of my favourite quotes is “Speak what you seek until you see what you’ve said“.
Your mind is a powerful instrument, always growing and always changing. The more you utilize the steps above the greater your chances of success.
Spend your time as if you’ve already achieved your desired goal.
Speak as though it’s already been manifested.
You’ll start seeing yourself doing, acting and thinking in ways you never thought possible and you will take your entire business to a whole new level.
Are you ready to change your mindset and build a wildly successful business?
