I came across the video below and laughed my head off just like everyone else. But there is another much more serious side to this video as well. This is the mentality many people have these days. The idea is that "if you want something bad enough it will happen for you". Unfortunately that is simply not true. The "wanting" of anything does not get you anything. But if the "wanting" something is powerful enough then someone might get off of their butt and start taking action in creating a reality in which the thing they wanted is achievable.
Let us look at this kid here. He wants to be super powerful more than anything else in life he says... What is he willing to do for this power? He is willing to scream like a broke ass Volvo engine for 3 minutes. Does this give him super powers? Of course not. All this video here does is ensure that he will NEVER get laid in this lifetime. His entire opening speech about the mind making anything possible is pointless because he is missing the most important part of the whole mind power thing. Where he should have read the entire book he stopped after the opening statement. He says that "people of his intellect" will get what he is saying. Intelligent people see what he really is... a confused little guy who thinks that making constipated sounds will grant him super powers.
Carl Lewis wanted nothing more than be the fastest human on earth. He wanted it so much that he trained his body to the point where his dream became a reality. The blood, sweat and tears he shed in the pursuit of his dream were the price he had to pay to get what he wanted. His mind was the driving force behind his actions of course. But dreams without actions are just as pointless as actions without purpose. In order to achieve the extraordinary the mind and the body have to become as one. THEN any dream is possible. Every great achievement starts with a dream but if the dream does not spawn action then a dream it will remain. You can dream about becoming a doctor but if you don't go to school and deliver the goods then no one will knock on your door and "make" you a doctor.
This kid here is not willing and probably doesn't even have the brain power to understand what it would take to make even a fraction of his dream a reality. He has never seen a gym from the inside which resulted in a "body" with the muscle mass of the average girl scout. Not only does he not have super powers but with a body like that he will forever have to ask his mother to open the peanut butter jar for him. His level of understanding is such that he does not even understand enough to understand how little he understands.
The mind is where the dream is built. The dream is the fuel that makes the engine (the body) move. If the dream turns the mind and the body into a harmonious force that relentlessly pushes towards the goal then not even the sky will be your limit. I wonder what his mother was thinking when she heard the fruit of her unsavory loins turn super hero in the nursery? She must be so proud... I'm just saiyan.
