change your life. You can overcome any obstacle. Human potential is
so amazing that it has never been fully realized. This is the only
explanation for why world records are broken time and time again.
- Tom Whittaker,
a right leg amputee, climbed Mount Everest.
- Edith Haisman
lived to be 100 after surviving the Titanic.
- Bruce Haynes broke
15 cement slabs with a combined weight of 683 lb. with one blow
of his bare hand.
- Johnny Salo won
a running race of 3,665 miles from New York City to Los Angeles
averaging 8 minutes and 36 seconds per mile.
- Donald Trump in
the late 1980s was 8.8 billion dollars in debt and is now a multi-billionaire.
- W. Mitchel was
involved in a high-speed motorcycle accident with a parked Mac
truck. His quick thinking enabled him to slam the bike on the
pavement to avoid a deadly collision. He slid at 65 mi/hr underneath
the truck, his bike then exploded, mutilating his face and burning
off 3/4ths of his skin. He woke up two weeks later in terrible
pain, making it almost unbearable to even breathe. Then, he decided
to focus on what he could do and what he could accomplish, instead
of making his life more miserable by focussing on what he had
lost. With this positive frame of mind, he gained the power to
develop a new company, which became the #1 employer of its type
in the state of Vermont. With the success of his company he was
able to become a millionaire and learned to fly airplanes. He
then was involved in an airplane crash, in which 3 people walked
away, but he was left paralyzed from the waist down for life.
His toes were cut off and sowed onto his hands. His wife left
him. Once again with the power of his positive perspective, he
became the mayor of a town in Colorado and now has his own radio
show and has married the woman of his dreams.
The list goes on and on. Now, were any of these people
born with superhuman physical powers? NO! The people that accomplished
amazing feats of physical strength might have had a genetic makeup
that allowed them to gain a certain amount of strength, but so did
many of their competitors. It was their mind that ensured their
survival, victory and success.
- Tom had determination,
the ability to mentally overcome his handicap and the self-discipline
to train hard.
- Edith had the
mental toughness and will to survive.
- Bruce had the
faith he needed to believe his fist could penetrate stone, the
knowledge of how to do it and the self-discipline to train and
had the self-discipline to train and the mental determination
and toughness to endure pain and keep going.
- Donald had the
mental ability to bounce back from failure, focus on his assets
and seize financial success.
- W. Mitchel had
the positive mind set to adopt a positive perspective, focus on
what he had (not what he didn't) and use his brain to achieve
financial success and emotional happiness.
The one thing that set each of these people apart
from their competitors or peers was their mind and their will. You
are a member of the same amazing human species, the most advanced
intelligent life form on this planet. You were born with the same
sized brain proportionately as each of these people. The human mind
is the soul source of inner strength that each of us possesses.
It's potential has still not been realized. Remember and repeat
Who you are inside is more powerful than anything
you confront and anything that can happen to you.
The magic of this statement is that it's true.
You have the ability to overcome. There is no reason why you cannot
change your life for the better and every reason why you should.
So let's get started.
The following is a 20-step plan. Don't take this
lightly. Don't read it and forget it. If you truly want to change,
you need to read this entire section, give this problem your full
attention and follow through with strength and commitment.
Get yourself a pen and pad of paper. From time to
time, we'll ask questions and suggest that you give it some thought
and write your answers or discoveries down. Please do this whenever
it's suggested for your own good. It will make it much more possible
for you to improve your life.
Habits that have been established for a long period
of time have a certain momentum that tends to keep them going unless
some strong intervention is accomplished. When a wave is barreling
toward shore, what will it take to bounce that wave in a new direction?
A rubber ducky is not going to do it. You need a breakwater! - A
big recognition of the problem and its source followed by a big
action. Let this reading and the action you take immediately be
your breakwater that your habit cannot penetrate. You have the power
inside, so let's kick some ass!
