Excerpts-
  • From the book INTRODUCTION: Unleash
    the Imprisoned Splendor

    Truth is within ourselves; it takes no rise
    From outward things, whate'er you may believe.
    There is an inmost centre in us all,
    Where truth abides in fulness;

    ...

    And to know,
    Rather consists in opening out a way
    WHence the imprisoned splendor may escape,
    Than in effecting entry for a light
    Supposed to be without. 

    —Robert Browning 

    William James of Harvard wrote, "The greatest revolution of my generation is the discovery that people, by changing their inner attitudes of mind, can change the outer aspects of their lives."
    You and your mind are extraordinary. You have 100 billion brain cells, each connected by ganglia and neurons to as many as twenty thousand other cells. The total number of thoughts that you can think is therefore equal to one hundred billion to the twenty thousandth power.
    According to brain expert Tony Buzan, this means that the number of ideas you can generate is equal to the number one followed by eight pages of zeroes, more potential ideas than the number of all the molecules in the known universe.
    The question is, "How are you using this powerful mental supercomputer?"
    You have the mental ability right now to set any goal and achieve everything you could ever want or hope for in life. By using your brain—your ability to think, plan, and create—with greater precision and accuracy, you can solve any problem, overcome every obstacle, and achieve any goal you can set for yourself.
    Your mental supercomputer is so powerful that you could not use your full potential if you had a hundred lifetimes.

    10 Percent of Potential

    When I was twenty-one, I was impressed when I heard that the average person uses only 10 percent of his or her mental ability. I later learned that the true number is closer to 2 percent. Most people have enormous reserves of mental capacity that they fail to use, that they are apparently saving up for some good reason.
    Imagine that you had inherited a bank account containing $1 million and growing regularly with interest. But you only ever accessed twenty thousand dollars of this amount because you lacked the necessary code to acquire the rest of your money. The remainder of this wealth was yours, but you couldn't get at it, because you did not know the correct account number that would release these funds to you.
    This ist he situation of most people. They have enormous stores of mental ability that they habitually fail to use.
    In the pages ahead, you will learn a series of simple, practical, proven ways to tap into more and more of your natural thinking talents and abilities. You do not need to become more than you are or someone different. You only need to become all that you are already and to unleash more of your existing mental powers. 

    Learn the Combinations

    Life is like a combination lock, only with more numbers. All combination locks work in the same way. You turn to the first number, back past the number to the second number, and forward to the third number. If you have the right numbers, the lock opens, whether it is a bicycle lock or a great vault in a major bank.
    Imagine that you knew all the numbers but one to unlock the success code in whatever you wanted to do. Lacking one key number, you could spin the dial forever and never get into the riches contained inside your mental vault.
    But with one extra number, in the correct order, the vaulut would open, and you could achieve extraordinary things with your life.
