Do you believe that simply changing the way you think can have a big impact on your life or your accomplishments?
It’s a somewhat abstract concept to think that just being more positive or more driven can attract more good things to you, or that focusing more on the good in your life can make you happier.
So how about a demonstration to show just how powerful the mind is?
What if your brain could make you considerably stronger, simply if you change the way you think?
Introducing Hysterical Strength
Hysterical strength is a term used to describe historical examples of people tapping into incredible physical power. The most common story is that of mothers who have to rescue their children from being trapped under cars or some other heavy object. In these scenarios, the mothers call upon some kind of superhuman strength and manage to physically move the cars out the way. Of course, this can also be done by fathers and any one of us in a similar situation. How can this be possible?
While this has never been proven, there actually is a good scientific explanation for how it might work and some evidence to support it.
“You know that little voice in the back of your mind, telling you to stop? Well you can train that little voice. I taught mine to shut up.” – Unknown
That’s because we normally are only capable of accessing around 30%-50% of our muscle fiber. When exercising or going about our normal routines, we can’t use 100% of our strength because we would risk injuring our ligaments or exhausting ourselves.
You can see this when someone gets an electrical shock – this causes the muscles to contract to their fullest which is enough to throw the individual right across the room!
But under times of incredible stress or in life-and-death scenarios, it might just be that the brain is able to tap into those hidden depths. This would work because of the release of stress hormones like cortisol, adrenaline and perhaps other neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine. Together, these could improve communication across the neuromuscular junction, thereby recruiting a greater number of muscle fibers and allowing the individual to access their ‘full’ strength.
Putting it Into Action
In theory then,, you could gain more strength simply by imagining your family trapped under a car. If you could really believe it, then you might be able to access hidden strength enough to break your records in the gym.
But there are easier ways according to the research. That’s because yelling at the top of your voice just so happens to trigger a small stress response and studies demonstrate that this is enough to allow you to gain a little more strength during lifts! Talk about mind over matter…
So what does this have to do with Law of Attraction?
Law of Attraction refers to a basic ‘fact of life’ and specifically, the fact that ‘like attracts like’. This is to say that as you act, so others will act toward you. And as you collect, so you will attract more of the same.
As you body gets stronger so will your “attraction muscles”.
The most commonly used example of this is in our careers and businesses. If you act like someone who is a successful business owner by dressing that way, behaving that way and believing it to be true: then actually you will end up moving closer to that and attracting more opportunities related to self-employment.
So how does this work? This isn’t some wishy-washy advice about positive thinking but rather a simple and logical process that takes place.
Because when you really believe yourself to be a successful business owner or are the process of becoming one, it will instantly change the way you present yourself. You will dress like someone who is more confident; you will stand with more confidence, and you will express yourself with more authority (and at more opportunities!). What’s more, is that you will take more chances and positive “risks” because you believe yourself to be in a better position.
When you do all this, you will start to attract more positive attention and take a huge leap toward attracting your dream life.
