She begins her speech with the question “does your thinking limit your success,” and proceeds to show the connection between thought-process and action through a series of numerical exercises.
In one of the exercises, Mc Ginnis proves that people are taught to unconsciously overlook facts. She believes the process of overlooking may cause one to miss out on important opportunities due to “preconceived notions.” Mc Ginnis poses the questions: “How many things are you trained to ignore?”
With the majority of actions stemming from the unconscious mind, she argues that the barriers to reaching goals are our thoughts: “…Reasons like these could be getting in your way of taking action…your reasons could be costing you a fortune.” Theses reasons and thoughts are powerful “electrical impulses” that have the ability to think us in or out of a specific situation.
Since the correlation between thoughts and actions are so important, one should examine the thoughts behind those unrealized dreams and discontented areas of life. Mc Ginnis ends her speech with the exhortation to make a change: “Be aware of your thinking and start examining the unconscious…bring your issues to the forefront and make a new choice.”
