Think Of The Homeless

There are over 30 million Americans who live on the streets of our nation. Can you consider giving something to a shelter near you? Your fellow human beings need socks because they walk everywhere. Food and shelter are great too, if they will take them. So please give.

Let’s Talk About Mental Leverage, Pt. 2

(If you missed part 1, you need to go back)

People who have achieved great things in business understand many of the underlying principals of Mental Leverage. They have seen how the power of leverage has worked in financing their enterprises, over and over they have been able to make one dollar do the work of ten or more.

When they were young they came to the realization that their success was limited only by their own creativity and problem solving ability.. and of course, some courage thrown in for good measure. They agreed with Daniel Webster, that the mind is the great lever of all things. This can be helpful as you multiply your mental powers in much the same way as they multiplied their financial leveraging.

You’ll need to realize, as we go through these, that your own individual talents and abilities will determine what you will concentrate on. Do you need to improve your memory, your reading speed, or perhaps you would benefit from opening up the creative flood gates? You’ll need to decide these things for yourself, and I hope you can find the impetus to actually implement some of the tips.

The law of averages says that if you were to sit down with a group of other people and take an intelligence test, some would obtain higher scores than you. But don’t let it get in the way of your success, because when it comes to real life situations, it’s possible to beat everyone. Why?

1) No one functions at a level anywhere near their mental capacity.

2) All you need to do is out perform someone. It doesn’t matter if they are smarter than you. You’ll need to increase your performance ratio.

Performance ratio is simply the percentage of your total mental capacity you are putting to use. You are probably using only something like 10% of your brain power, like most people. But applying mental leverage makes it seem as if your brain is using a much higher percentage of strength.

Let’s say for instance that your memory normally operates at about 10% capacity, Mental Leverage will make you perform way above this in ways you couldn’t imagine. When you increase your ability to recall facts and figures with a little leverage, you can operate at about 20%. Impossible? Au contraire mon fraire. The people who can beat you in an IQ test are still functioning at ten percent, but now you can outperform them hands down.

Let’s say that someone else has an IQ of 140, while yours is 120. In normal conditions that other person should be able to learn faster than you can. But these aren’t going to be normal conditions, because you are going to apply Mental Leverage to the equation. This will actually make you “smarter” than the other guy. When your learning power is above the smarter IQ, you can easily out perform them.

More to come in part 3.
