The mind is a very powerful tool with amazing potential and great energy that can work wonders in our lives, provided we give it room to express itself in the right direction,  says MAULANA WAHIDUDDIN KHAN

There is an enormous energy reservoir in you. All of your actions, big or small, are directly related to your mind. It is the mind that directs all the activities of your personality.

The human mind is greater than all of the great things of the universe; it has amazing qualities. The mind has unlimited reserves of energy. When we decide to do anything, the mind at once releases energy and we do the job with the aid of this energy.

The mind is the prime source of energy and whatever we do, can only be done with the help of this energy. If we choose to do some easy task, then the mind will release less amount of energy. And, if we decide to do some difficult or great task, then the mind will release a greater amount of energy.

Maulana Wahiduddin Khan

The building of a personality depends on your own efforts. If you are an easy-going person, then you are bound to receive less energy from this mind, and the result will be — a weak personality.

If you are ambitious and you choose to embark on a great task, then certainly, the mind will release greater amount of energy, resulting in the development of a strong personality. Everyone is born with the same mind that is full of energy. But some people fail to utilise their energy and they die without developing their personalities.

The other kind of people are those who set a great task as their goal. Thus, their minds release a greater amount of energy for the performance of this task, and so they become super achievers.

Man himself is the master of his destiny. It all depends on how much a person has unfolded his mind and how much energy the mind has released. You achieve greater or smaller successes in life depending on how much energy your mind releases.

A powerful mind makes all things possible

Every man is a self-made man. But the quantum of success depends on one’s own planning. Wise planning makes one an achiever, while unwise planning makes one lag behind in life. The mind of man is like an energy reservoir. If your target is ordinary, then the mind will open the door of energy on a small scale. But, if the target is a high one, the mind will open the gate of energy on a larger scale.

It is this difference that decides the level of your achievement. Try to utilise your mind, and you will certainly achieve anything you want to in life. This is because the mind is a very powerful tool and within it, the mind contains amazing potential, and great energy that can work wonders if only you give it room to express itself in the right direction.
