Those paths we choose, those which we walk along, are determined often by our subconscious. We’re rarely privy to what goes on behind the scenes, even in our own minds. But must be prepared for the moment of inspiration when it chooses to make itself known.
Despite cluelessness as to what goes on behind the scenes in our minds we an influence our subconscious thoughts by choosing to feed our subconscious with proper sustenance. This is done through positivity. The positivity of purpose.
Some great reading on the power of our subconscious includes Incognito: The Secret Lives of the Brain by David Eagleman. Think Rich, Go Rich by Napoleon Hill provides a great framework but misses much of the later psychological insights later gleaned through research.
