If you've ever read a self improvement book, listened to a self improvement program, attended a self improvement seminar, or visited a self improvement website, odds are you've run into one of more subconscious mind power techniques. While some of them work and work well, many of them don't, at least the way most folks use them...

Here are three frequently recommended subconscious mind power techniques that either don't work at all or don't work the way most people use them:

Mind Power Technique #1 - Affirmations

An affirmation or self-affirmation, as some people call them, is essentially a statement you make to yourself about yourself, usually phrased in the first person, present tense, as if you already have whatever it is you desire. Statements you make to yourself, orally or just mentally, such as "I am wealthy", "I am healthy", and "I am successful" are affirmations.

Used correctly, affirmations can have a *very* powerful effect on your subconscious mind and thus, in your getting what you want. On the other hand, used incorrectly, the way most people use them, merely repeating the phrase or phrases to themselves over and over and over again, they have little, if any, effect on your subconscious mind and thus, in your getting what you want.

Mind Power Technique #2 - Subliminal Programming

Subliminal, meaning literally "below threshold", according to Wikipedia, CDs, DVDs, and even software, are touted to produce change effortlessly by delivering images or messages directly to your subconscious mind. You'll see these programs all over the place nowadays. Popular topics include build self-esteem, lose weight, and stop smoking, just to name a few.

Maybe these subliminal programs work for some folks, though I've yet to meet anyone they've worked for, but I experimented with these on and off for years, back when they were pretty much only available on cassette tape (remember those?), and, quite frankly, they never had any effect on me whatsoever. Neither, for that matter, did so-called "self-hypnosis" programs.

Mind Power Technique #3 - Create a "Positive" Environment

The idea here is, I'm told, is that by surrounding yourself with "positive", "motivational" signs, posters, and other "reminders" at home and at work, their messages will somehow magically "seep" into your subconscious mind and thus "energize" you and effect "positive" change in your life.

Although creating a "positive environment" for yourself at home and at work certainly doesn't do any harm, as these signs, posters, and other "reminders" soon become part of the "landscape", so to speak, that you don't even notice after awhile, personal experience tells me they don't do a whole heck of a lot of good either, at least as far as constructively influencing your subconscious mind is concerned.

Affirmations, at least the way most people use them, subliminal programming, and creating a "positive" environment are but three of the many mind power techniques that don't work and thus are a total waste of time, money, and/or effort. Fortunately, however, there are very powerful techniques you can use to unleash the unlimited power of your subconscious and direct it to any end result you desire.
