Everyone knows the famous statue that was sculpted by Michelangelo called “The David.” There is a story that says that when the block of marble that was intended for the statue of was brought from the quarry, there was tremendous concern that a visible flaw on the outside of this block would make it unusable. When Michelangelo came to inspect it, he said something to the effect “not to worry, I see him in there and I will release him.”
Michelangelo was a genius who created great masterpieces. “The David” is one of those great masterpieces. Carved out of a single massive block marble, it is a one of the great artistic wonders of the world. The story above may or may not be true, but modern analysis shows that this amazing work of art was in fact carved from an inferior block of marble. However this does not take anything away from the aesthetic value of this moving piece of work.
In the same way, our brains are very much like that block of marble. Our brains are composed of countless neurons that can be programmed by our conscious and subconscious in ways that will improve our mental abilities, give us focus, and direct us to achieve our goals and own personal potential. In other words, as Michelangelo chiseled, polished and worked the marble to create The David, we too can do the same with our minds to create a better self.
The good news is that we can use our conscious thoughts to shape our beliefs, in order to change our behaviors, in order to help us achieve goals that we have always wanted but may not have thought possible. In other words, we can use be our own inner Michelangelo to create our own version of The David. In fact, just as Michelangelo saw “The David” in that Block of Marble, you can see your own vision the person you want to be and transform yourself to create your own masterpiece of your life.
You can learn to be your own Michelangelo and find the tools you need to create your own David through meditation, visualization, goal setting, prioritization, and other techniques that you can learn about through Neural Linguistic Programming (NLP), books, seminars, etc that will be presented in these blogs. Of course, you can also listen to “Breaking Murphy’s Law” on “Breakthrough Thinking Broadcasting Network” hosted by David Isaac.
