Freud And Subconscious Motivators

• Sigmund Freud put forth a model of the human mind having an unconscious division residing beneath the conscious region, akin to an iceberg, of which the tip peeking above the water’s surface represents the conscious mind, and the portion submerged underwater representing the unconscious.

• The unconscious mind is said to contain all the thoughts, feelings, and memories that have been pushed out of conscious awareness in an attempt to prevent them from threatening your identity. But while such components of yourself may be buried deep in your psyche, you may still be continually influenced by them, and manifest such influences through your actions and reactions.

• Your unconscious mind can work against your self-discipline, as unacceptable desires and impulses that have been pushed into the unconscious realm would likely continue to undermine your conscious efforts to reach your goals.
