The Mind has the Greatest Power

This is one of my favorite lessons; the power of which is incredible. Henry Ford is quoted as

saying, “Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” It is related to last week’s idea on Faith, which, as it relates to today’s topic, is about building one’s self-confidence. When we make statements about who we are, they are either innately true, or the lie will wear on us to the point that we will no longer make the statement because the incongruence will grow so uncomfortable that we can no longer state it.

One of my favorite examples has to do with a vice that we want to correct. I am going to use “smoking” as an example. Smoking is quite an addictive habit, and the teaching that I learned used this to illustrate the power of the mind. Often times, people will say, “I am quitting smoking.” It’s a great start to breaking the habit, and yet, the problem lies with the action. One can “quit” for years, and thus is successful in the process, but unsuccessful at actually quitting. Instead, the statement, “I am a non-smoker; and I will not give in to smoking today.” may give one more power to achieve the desired goal.

“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re right.” Henry Ford
