It is a common belief that the huma
n brain is somehow empty at birth,
and as the child begins to grow and
 receive stimulus, the neurons star
t making connections. Science is no
w discovering, however, that the re
verse may be true. The infant is ac
tually born with many more neuron c
onnections than most adults have. I
t may be that learning does not hap
pen by making neuron connections, b
ut rather by _weeding out_ those th
at are not used. If this is true, t
hen we are all, literally, born wit
h brilliant minds and we must _use
it or lose it._

In the first weeks of life, most ba
bies will babble every possible sou
nd imaginable. Yet, these children
will later lose the ability to crea
te sounds that are not a part of th
e language they have been trained t
o speak. Therefore, the child_s env
ironment will play a tremendous rol
e in brain development.

Scientists claim that in our societ
y the average individual uses only
5 - 10% of the brain's potential. I
magine what your life could be like
 if you were able to stimulate your
 mind into activating even a small
portion of that unused potential!

Begin by asking yourself:

1. If I could have anything at all,
what would it be?
2. What would I need to do to attain
 it?
3. What stops me from doing those th
ings now?
4. How can I overcome those challen
ges to attain the life I desire?

These questions move us into the re
alms of imagination and positive th
inking -- the qualities that will a
llow you to awaken that other 90% a
nd keep those neurons firing! Now y
ou might say to yourself, _I alread
y have a positive attitude,_ or, pe
rhaps _that positive stuff doesn't
work -- all I need is willpower!_
But the following demonstration pro
ves that the imagination is far mor
e powerful than willpower can ever be.

Okay, ready for the test? Gather al
l of your strength and "willpower."
 Be sure NOT to do the following &
here it comes & DON'T think of a re
d firetruck!!

What happened?

You automatically thought of a red
firetruck, right? This is because w
hen the _will_ and the _imagination
_ are in conflict, the imagination
always wins. Most people spend a gr
eat deal of time telling themselves
  what they DON_T want, instead of w
hat they DO want. Even with every o
unce of willpower they can muster,
they somehow end up with more of th
e same old thing. That_s because th
e mind works in pictures, not words
. Imagination is the secret ingredi
ent of life. If people imagine them
selves _rich,_ regardless of the am
ount of money they have, chances ar
e they will be healthy and strong a
nd live an abundant life. If a rich
  man imagines himself poor or on th
e brink of losing his fortune, it i
s likely that trouble and sickness
will plague him to the grave.

All that we are searching for in li
fe is already present within oursel
ves. The sooner we come to believe
in the power of our own imagination
, the easier our lives will become.
  I challenge you to stretch your mi
nd to the possibility of accomplish
ment beyond your present aspiration
s. What if, in an attempt to reach
your goals, you awakened the powerf
ul latent genius within? How would
you feel if you found the cure for
AIDS or cancer? Think of the people
  who would benefit from your achiev
ement. The reality is that until ev
eryone on the planet imagines a wor
ld of health and vitality for all,
there will always be disease and wo
e. Take charge of your life now. Im
agine your way to health and happin
ess and it will be so.
