Your Mind is Most Powerful

November 15, 2016

The mind is the most powerful part of the body. Anything that you imagine, think, or dream, you can achieve. One of the hardest things is to take that initial leap of faith to believe in your idea, or to believe that you can do it, and going ahead and starting.

Lao Tzu said, “the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step.” This is the essence of life with a million obstacles, challenges, and things taking place that will distract you from the path that you want to start stepping down.

The sheer ability to change the impossible into the possible is how dreams are created, how entrepreneurs become successful business people, and how the Chicago Cubs can win the world series.

After having the courage to start a task, one of the hardest things is to have the persistence needed to continue along the journey. The path to success isn’t a straight line- there will be many bumps along the way that will test you, and push you in ways that you never would have expected.

There is no way to predict or know what is going to take place throughout your own journey, however there is an opportunity to build mental resilience that will not only help you to best battle these challenges, but it will also enable you to overcome them and prevail.

One of the most proven ways to develop more mental strength is grounded in what is known as cognitive behavioral therapy (CBT). With CBT, people can better understand the connection between their thoughts, behaviors, and emotions.

The famous Zig Ziglar said, “you are what you are because of what goes into your mind.”

Traditionally, finding avenues to learn more about CBT has been very challenging. There is a shortage of people who are fluent and have a deep understanding of how it can be best applied to your life.

This has all changed thanks to cutting edge technology developed by Chicago-based Prevail Health in partnership with the National Science Foundation. Built with a leading team of doctors, along with some of the top institutions throughout America, Prevail has created a black box solution that is available on any phone, tablet, or computer with internet.

Prevail’s entire program is personalized and tailored to the exact situation that the user finds themselves in, creating analogies or stories that help the user best relate. Throughout the entire Prevail journey, users are rewarded with points that act as positive reinforcement to continue throughout the program.

Think of Prevail like going to the gym- but for your mind. Now there is a way to harness the incredible strength of your own mind, take leaps of faith to achieve the impossible, and to Prevail!
