The Power of Thought

Recently, I stumbled upon a video about the power of thought and how it can actually work in connection with physical actions. If you made it past that first sentence, then keep reading. One of the points of the video explained that just thinking about say, the act of exercising a certain muscle actually engages the neurons in your brain. Granted you aren’t going to get a six pack with this method, but studies did show that the muscles thought to be exercised actually had been. Still with me? Want to learn how to play the piano but don’t own one? Some participants in the study were allowed to study piano but weren’t allowed to play it, when compared with similar students who actually were allowed to play, the results were similar to the ones who hadn’t played. Granted there is a point to where one’s physical activities will over shadow thoughts alone. You aren’t going to become a famous artist just based on pictures you drew in your head. Okay, so you’ve made it this far in my rant about how your brain works to help you jump start the creative juices, so get to it! Think about a project or goal prior to starting it, imagine the actions involved and get a head start for when you actually decide to write that masterpiece, just don’t forget that genius takes hard work.
