Chapter 13

The Brain   


As we were growing up, we all learned about the brain in school. We learned that the brain is the most powerful thing in our body. And we even went as far to say that the ones with the bigger brain, are the ones that are the geniuses. It’s funny how we learn such things when growing up. The one takeaway that I do agree with is that the brain is one of our most powerful parts of our body. And that was further backed up by Hill in this chapter.


Hill states, “When stimulated, or ‘stepped up’ to a high rate of vibration, the mind becomes more receptive to the vibration of thought which reaches it through the ether from outside sources. This ‘stepping up’ process takes place through the positive emotions, or the negative emotions. Through the emotions, the vibrations of thought may be increased.”


Wow, think about that last paragraph from Hill. Our brain is stimulated either through the positive emotions or the negative ones. There is no in between. Your brain is either functioning on positive emotions or negative ones. Can you imagine what you are doing to, not only your business, but to the people around you by thinking negative? Is it easier to think negative? Yes, it is, which is why so many people do it unconsciously. As the old saying goes, “Anything worthwhile takes time and practice.”


Therefore, I want to remind ourselves (including myself) that we control our lives and the way we think. Remember the saying of Mentoring for Free, we are getting taught HOW to think, not what to think.
