Landmark Forum helps you develop the self-belief

This post was written by landmark

What is the most important quality one should have as a human being? The answer is the self-belief that ‘I can’. Man is not much different from other animals in the universe in this regard. Every man in the world is born with the same brain size. However, a brain is one organ where size does not manner at all. The thing that does is the extent to which you use it. An overwhelming majority of people in the world use a minuscule portion of the brain. The quantum of usage depends on the circumstances they are brought up in life. Of course, there are geniuses who have flourished under very trying circumstances, but they are more of the exception that the rule. Landmark Forum tries its best to bridge the gap between the rule and the exception.

Let us look at a couple of stories that can help you drive home this fact.

One day, I was coming home after watching a circus. I found out that huge elephants were tied to small pegs on the ground with thin ropes. Just one tug and the peg would have been uprooted. I thought it should be a dangerous thing to do so. Hence, I approached the elephant keeper and questioned the logic behind the act. His reply was as astounding as it was true.

He said that these elephants have conditioned their minds that they are not strong enough to break this bond. This rope was strong enough to hold these elephants when they were small. They tried to break free but could not. It resigned in their brains that they do not have the strength to break this bond. Hence, they never try. They do not have the self-belief that they can do so. Now, the elephant has a large body and a comparatively large brain as well.

Now, come to another side of the same story. A scientist conducted an experiment where he kept some fleas in a cardboard box. This box had one opening towards the sky. He covered this opening with a glass lid. The fleas tried to jump out and collided with the glass lid, not being aware of its presence. This happened for several days. One fine day, the scientist removed the glass lid and kept the box open. The fleas could easily jump out, but they did not do so, conditioned as they were by the presence of the glass. The fleas have small bodies and small brains.

The point we are driving at is that the size of the brain does not matter. The only thing that does so is the belief that you can achieve the impossible. If Sir Edmund Hillary and Tenzing Norgay did not have the self-belief they would not have conquered Mount Everest. In doing so, they inspired thousands of others to do so subsequently.

Landmark Forum Reviews believes in developing the self-belief that you can do it under any circumstances. Once you learn this technique, the sky is the limit for you. Mind you, the sky is imaginary. It is only open space up there.
