Ever wanted superpowers as a kid? Me? Shoot yeah man I wanted X-ray vision for the obvious reasons after I discovered girls cooties are not so bad. Yet I also wanted to be able to fly and bend steel with my bare hands. All the fun things about being superhuman.
Dr. Alia Crum says we have superhuman abilities. Now don’t go getting lead underwear as of yet. This superpower is the power of your mind. No, not like Dr, Xavier, but close.
The power of knowing you can. Believing you can, shows you can. Dr. Crum did a Ted Talk about how shifting your mindset makes a huge difference in your results. From losing weight to achieving your goals. The limitations you face are in your head. Your mind is like a gun. It can be used for good or evil depending on the mindset. Your mindset could easily create sorrow or it could save the day. It all depends on you and what your mindset is.
If you want to lose weight your mindset can help you do that. If you believe your job is very active you are likely to lose the pounds. Much like the housekeeping ladies did. You believe in something that something is likely to happen. Take the people who drank a special shake.
Our minds are awe-inspiring. They help us in ways that you never even knew. They also try to protect us. Even when we want to do something extraordinary many times our mindset will tell us a story. It works to keep up safe, and comfortable. Who wants to be uncomfortable? So our mindset comes to the rescue.
As you can see we can so some pretty cool stuff. This coming week Is about what is a mindset and we will be making a mindset journey and how the outdoors can help shift that mindset.
