  1. Many people aren’t aware of how much the mind is truly capable of –even more powerful through designed training. By telling your brain (yes I can do it) you can use repetition and habit to achieve what may have previously seen almost impossible.

    optimism works the same way.

    GREAT. GREAT post!

    Thank you!
