Do you know that 2% of your body mass controls the rest 98% of your body? Thats true. Residing with in your skull, quietly and perfectly protected, immersed in its job right from birth till death with out a break, your brain forms the most commanding position in your body. Brain commands every signal that makes your body parts perform. The power of brain is so much that in order to declare a person to be dead, the last part of your body which should stop working is your brain. It’s that significant. Your voluntary actions, involuntary actions, senses, emotions, reflexes, responses, and every aspect of your life is associated with your brain in one way or other. No cell can perform its duty unless it keeps getting the instruction from your brain.
A great secret lies with in this 2% mass of your body. The secret of what you are good at! Yes you read it right. It is a known experience that every child is born with some innate capabilities and inclinations. We call there inclinations as inborn talents. Have you heard the stories of little children doing unbelievable act of performances like a 3 year old child remembering the world map in its entirety? Or a 5 year old playing Gymnastics like a pro?
Doesn’t this indicate to us that we all enter in to this world with a pre activated brain? With some level of basic encoding in our brain that helped us start our journey by our first cry, first sense of light, first sense of touch; it is imperative that this very little wonder of your body goes through an enormous amount of coding and programming there after till our death.
This means, every living aspect of your life including where your abilities lies resides in your brain. To know this itself is a good start! Why? Because every effort by a success seeker leads to the ultimate quest in his life – his life purpose!
Until very recently till the millennial generation, we kept trying to define the purpose of ones life through the passion that he is driven by. Which means, it says you follow your passion and you will find the purpose of your life. With the current internet age sweeping the world by a storm of information revolution, the world is getting smaller day by day. Two people sitting at the two poles of the world, seeing for the first time ever in their life makes friends with each other over night. The barriers set by the communities and religion is no longer the precedent to make relationships. Race, colour, creed, nationality all are fast becoming obsolete barriers and identity norms.
Give the command of your body back to your brain. Respect your own intelligence. Take well informed decisions. Find the balance between your logic and your gut. Break the barriers of your thinking pattern beyond what you have been taught from school. Grow beyond academic intelligence. Follow your purpose. Align passion to what you do. Enjoy work!
