Your subconscious mind is a memory bank, with virtually unlimited capacity, permanently recording everything that happens to you. Until the time a human turns 21, it has already stored 100 times more information than an Encyclopedia Britannica. It is also the subconscious mind which records a person's habits, behavior, beliefs, and shapes his character.
Though you may have no control over your subconscious mind, the good this is that it can be reprogrammed by reinforcing positive thoughts, ideas and actions to become a better, more successful individual. A change that cannot be created through awareness can be made on the level of the subconscious mind. Therefore, reprogramming the subconscious mind can be the key to being a more effective, efficient and a successful employee.
Here are some tips that can help you trick your subconscious mind and boost your productivity to its optimum potential.

The subconscious mind can be reprogrammed through positive affirmations. Repeated positive statements can overwrite the negative thoughts and beliefs already registered within our memory. Thus, enabling human beings to develop a new attitude, creating new pathways in our subconscious mind.
