Unleash the Powers of Your Mind and Attain Your Heart's Desires
By Hilda Johnson-Slaton
Before we begin, let me first ask you a simple question. Don't worry. This won't bend your mind nor twist your brain. It's a no-brainer, actually. Ok, here goes: What do Superman, Spiderman, Batman and the Incredible Hulk have in common?
See, it's easy, right? Yes, they all have supernatural powers - special abilities that make them supreme, invincible and indestructible, and which cause them to be recognized as superheroes. They use these special powers to do good things to people and defeat evil entities.
But, unfortunately, they are not real. They are only works of man's creative imagination. They don't exist in the real world.
Now, let us try to add another one in the list; this time, a real person, say you, me, your teacher, next-door neighbor, or simply anyone who exists in this world. The list would now be like this: Superman, Spiderman, Batman, the Incredible Hulk, and you.
Again, same question: What could be the common factor among those in the list? Remember, it includes you now. So before answering, you might ask another question first. Is there really something we all possess?
Indeed, there is.
Even changing the last entry to me, your teacher, next-door neighbor, or whoever real person you may think of, still there will always be something common between a superhero and a real person like you and me, and that is power.
As real people in the real world, we can never possess any of these supernatural physical powers. What we have is the power to mold our personality, to shape our future, to create our destiny, and to determine who and what we are - a power greater than any other supernatural powers, a power that builds reality and not mere imagination, a power which everyone possesses and can make him a hero in his own ways. This is the power of the mind.
"What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve!" -- Napoleon Hill
The mind is an infinite wonder. It has the fantastic ability to transmute your desires into their physical counterparts. You can do anything that your mind can conceive, as long as you have the belief and will power to back it up.
I bet you haven't thought how powerful you can be.
We have the power to reverse what the outside world makes us believe in. If it says that we are wrong, we have the power to make us right. If it says we are losers, we have the power to be winners. If it says we are non-existent, we have the power to make everyone see that we are alive and surviving.
And that is how the power of our mind works - making us more supreme, invincible, and indestructible than any other superhero is.
If the world says you can't, say "I can. Therefore, I will."
There is absolutely no limit with what the mind can achieve. But you have to combine belief, will power, and action with positive thinking in order to arrive at your intended destination. You are capable of attaining your heart's deepest desires - by unleashing the hidden powers of your mind!
