The Power Of Your Thoughts

In May 1954 Roger Banister became the first athlete to run a mile in 3 minutes, 59.4 seconds, beating a record and that he had tried to break for over 100 years. This event attracted media attention worldwide. At that time, scientists and doctors said that achieve a feat like that was humanly impossible, that attempt may make a person's heart would burst, the bones were broken and torn muscles in the effort … This feat by if it is astonishing, but perhaps more interesting is what happened then … In the space of seven months to beat this record, 37 other athletes also managed to break the barrier of four minutes and the next three years, others did 300 … The key question is how did this happen? If a few months earlier, running a mile in under four minutes was considered something physically impossible how did Roger Banister did just beat this record, many others did too? Does the human body made a sudden quantum leap that made the human body's capacity to expand? Clearly not changed … what were the thoughts of people … and what had seemed impossible in their minds, now it was not …

A limiting belief, a paradigm was broken, and then the human being was capable and easily achieved what once seemed impossible … With this, I want to show the power of your thoughts are in your life, how much you can limit or you can do able. Your world is a reflection of what you think and believe. Your thoughts can make you feel happy or sad, optimistic or pessimistic, capable or incapable. Some thoughts can be kind, loving and optimistic, other stressors, limiters, and pessimistic. And it is the latter that prevent us from being happy and full life.

Many times we live based on thoughts and beliefs that we learned as children, limiting thoughts, fears and paradigms that we have assumed, as absolute truths and that we have not questioned for check its veracity. While we believe in them, we live also in using them. I invite you to pay attention to your thoughts, thoughts that haunt your head and see how you have to live life in a friendly, confident and optimistic or live life with fear and limitations. For example, recently was with a sales team thought to be the newest company in its sector was an obstacle to achieve their sales targets. Once we identify this limiting belief, began to question with the following questions … Is that true? Is it true that being a new business is an obstacle to sales? The initial response was yes.
