Athletes know how important their mental game is. And no matter how good you are at your sport, if you don’t have your mind in the game more practice will not make you better.
A simple experiment at Manchester University in England shows that visualization alone can build muscle. Half the group did exercises each day with their pinky finger, the other half only visualized doing the exercises. The group that did the exercise, increased the size and strength of the muscle by 29%. The group that did not move a finger, only imagined, increased size and strength by 16%.
Build Muscle Only With Your Mind?
Pretty impressive, yes?
Think about it. I am always telling you to watch what you say to your cells, because they are listening. And I want you to realize how specific the messages from your mind to your body are- the words and images go to a specific place to perform a specific function.
So, when you say to yourself, “OMG I hate how fat my thighs are getting” or you tell your head “This headache is getting worse and worse” your body hears it and figures, “okey dokey, we better obey. Fatter thighs you want? No problem. Bigger headache, you got it baby.”
Just a friendly reminder. If you want something to grow, tell it to grow. Imagine it growing. Immerse it in messages of growth. Imagine doing the very thing that will make it grow. Great for muscles. And boobs. (research has been done on this as well)
It is not that hard to create a miraculous effect in your body, whether it is repairing damage from a stroke, stopping a headache, ending chronic pain, getting over a skin condition that was considered incurable. You get the idea.
How I Fixed My Finger
I once had a swollen finger with a ring that was stuck for over a week. I had tried everything. Soap, oil, ice, just everything for days. My finger was looking bad. So I was going to drive to get it cut off (the ring, not the finger) and figured I might as well hypnotize it to get the swelling down. I didn’t totally believe it would work, I kind of hoped it would work, but I did it anyway.
I went inside the finger, imagined the tissues reducing size, letting fluid flow back, reversing the inflammation, etc. I also imagined very vividly the ring sliding off easily about 2 hours from that time.
Lo. And Behold. A couple of hours later that ring slid right off my finger. No oil, no ice, no butter, no fuss, no muss.
The reason I tell you this is to remind you how powerful a specific thought can be. Remember how receptive our body is… Your commands will be carried out, just have to ask!

I got a little excited when I saw the big blue Happiness Bus pull into Boulder. It said it is delivering happiness. I was all over that!
Turns out, it is Tony Hsieh, the CEO of Zappos on a city to city tour with his book, Delivering Happiness. I have to tell you, I loved the book. It is his real story of getting started as a kid trying to start a work farm and several other biz projects.
His creation of Zappos was not about shoes. It was an attempt to make a company with the best customer service possible. Reading the book was inspiring. And that is what Tony is out to do now. Inspire people to find their happiness.
Oh, and in the process, Tony asked me to come in the bus and be interviewed live about how my work inspires others. Now that made me feel pretty jazzy. Hanging with Tony. Yee haw!
Recently I asked my Facebook group for an idea for a recording and most of them said the want to stop worrying, stop anxiety about the economy and let go of fear. They want to live in the feeling that everything is going to work out ok. Just feel content. Just feel happy.
I have a project I am working on that is about creating happiness for a lot of people. This project has the potential to end homelessness for those that want a way out. It all revolves around getting people to find their happiness. When it is ready, you will be the first to hear about it. We are in the testing stages right now.
Here’s to a little happiness in your day. Schedule it in, in ink. Do something every day that makes you happy. Something really cool and different every day.
