The power of belief, the mind may have the power to alter reality!
A human brain is known to work in mysterious ways. According to a study, most of our actions and decisions depend largely on the brain activity that is beyond our conscious mind. These findings suggest that our mind is a powerful tool whose full capabilities are yet to be discovered.
It has been hypothesized that the human mind may have the power to alter reality. Read the following extraordinary stories where people achieved the impossible through the power of their belief.
Rodger Bannister and the 4-Minutes Mile
For a long time, it was believed that it is impossible for a human body to run a mile in 4 minutes. Experts believed that the human body was just not capable of achieving such speeds. They went as far as stating that if a person was to run at this speed, his lungs would explode and he would certainly die.
The belief rang true for years until Rodger Bannister ran the miracle on May 6th, 1954. At that time, Bannister was a medical student in London and a member of an amateur all-star team.
Through his belief, he was able to break the world record and the mythical barrier created by the limiting human interpretations. His 4-minute mile uplifted the barrier for hundreds of athletes around the world and power of belief came through as more and more athletes started to break the 4-minute mark.
What was unachievable for decades became a commonplace practice because athletes believe that they can do it.
The story of Rodger Bannister proves that sometimes we live in the cage of imaginary restrictions because we underestimate our own abilities. Bannister says, ‘Just because they say it is impossible doesn’t mean you can’t do it.’
Morris E. Goodman – The Miracle Man
At the age of 35, Morris E. Goodman was an epitome of success. He was a successful life insurance salesman and a member of The Million Dollar Round Table.
On March 10, 1981, his world fell apart when he took a flight and without any warning, the engine lost power. His plane crashed while he struggled to land it resulting in serious injuries.
Goodman survived the tragic incident with a broken neck, a crushed spinal cord and virtually every major muscle in his body destroyed. His injuries were too severe to survive but he fought his way back to life.
He was left with a paralyzed body but his mind was intact which, according to him was the only thing he needed.
The miracle man not only survived but with a strong faith in God, determination and belief system he was able to rebuild his body. He left the doctors baffled by his recovery when he walked out of the hospital 8 months later.
Goodman credited his recovery to the power of belief by exclaiming, “Man becomes what he thinks about.”
So let go of the doubts and aim for the stars because the only thing holding you back is YOURSELF!

“If you think you are beaten, you are
If you think you dare not, you don’t,
If you like to win, but you think you can’t
It is almost certain you won’t.
If you think you’ll lose, you’re lost
For out of the world we find,
Success begins with a fellow’s will
It’s all in the state of mind.
If you think you are outclassed, you are
You’ve got to think high to rise,
You’ve got to be sure of yourself before
You can ever win a prize.
Life’s battles don’t always go
To the stronger or faster man,
But soon or late the man who wins
Is the man WHO THINKS HE CAN!” ~ Walter D. Wintle
