The wonderful American Monk, Burt Goldman, wrote the words below. We are only beginning to realize how powerful our minds are.
"If someone put a gun to your head and said, "Run a marathon in the next 24 hours or I'll shoot", what would you do?
You'd probably start running. And even though you may be unfit, you would complete that marathon. The human body is fully capable of it. You may not have record time, but you'd complete it.
Now here's the funny thing. AFTER completing that marathon, even if you chose not to exercise or eat different, your body would behave differently. You'll feel younger, more healthy, slimmer and leaner.
You see in our collective minds we have come to believe that anyone who can run a marathon is fitter, younger-looking, healthier and slimmer. Your body would actually take on those properties to abide by your believes about running a marathon. Your experience shifted your Inner Identity of WHO YOU ARE. That shift causes real changes to start occurring in your life. (no different from the placebo effect observed in medicine) " Read the rest here.
So many possibilities. Remember always you are limitless.
