exercising the mind

i had the pleasure of sharing some really challenging thoughts/ideas with a good friend of mine this past weekend. i had no idea how interested i was in psychology, but i see that i have a much stronger passion and interest than i knew. the mind is such a powerful tool. it's almost scary the potential that we have. we just need to tap into it. so often, we restrict our potential (in the form of limiting our minds) without even knowing it. i have said for the past few years that the subconscious is a powerful thing, but i am beginning to realize the sheer magnitude of its capacity. in the same regard though, our conscious minds offer ability beyond belief, but we get distracted so often that we cannot take advantage of things right there in our minds. coming here to cambridge has really helped me to see how many ideas we can process on a daily basis without so much distraction in our lives. i never thought that quiet time alone could be so beneficial. i am now understanding the habits of great thinkers more and more. i know i am just beginning to exercise my mind and push my thoughts to the limits, but i am very excited to be on the path to trying to follow in the footsteps of the greatest thinkers and brilliant minds of the past and present in hopes of becoming one of the great minds of the future.
