You Are a Badass

Chapter 1
Summary

The subconscious contains the blueprint of life. It may be described as the foundation upon which life is laid. While most people do not appreciate the impact of the subconscious, it is a fact that it is the subconscious mind that reflects who people really are. Sincero indicates, "The subconscious mind believes everything because it has no filter, it doesn’t know the difference between what’s true and what’s not true. If our parents tell us that nobody in our family knows how to make money, we believe them. If they show us that marriage means punching each other in the face, we believe them.” The subconscious mind is fragile and must be treated with great care. Since it retains everything and does not filter what it is exposed to, it is incredibly important to take great care of our immediate environment, protecting the subconscious from being polluted with negative ideas.

Analysis

The subconscious is the secret weapon of human success. Based on the unfiltered information that it receives from the environment, it is the driving force in every person’s life. While we may not be able to determine the exact contents of the subconscious mind, science has provided enough evidence to suggest that it is the subconscious mind that shapes our approach to life. No matter how intelligent you are, or how successful you become, it is still the subconscious mind that controls the conscious mind. Thus, it is necessary for everyone to be careful with the information that they expose their minds too.
