“…the human individual thus lives
far within his limits. He possesses powers of various sorts
which he habitually fails to use.”
—William James, “The Energies of Men”
Everybody talks about the amazing powers of the human mind, and they’re right. But
it’s not just ESP or Telepathy or any of the other “sexy” powers that are amazing.
The human mind has other astounding powers,too. Our minds have many abilities which we use everyday, so effortlessly that we don’t even know that we are using them. Like the power to remember things, the power to concentrate, the power to pay attention, the power to imagine things. Do they sound ordinary and humdrum?
Don’t dismiss them just yet – with proper training and used well, they can enable us to do things which look impossible or miraculous. They can also help us to become successful, healthy, and wealthy.
