“Men go abroad to wonder at the height of mountains, at the huge waves of the sea, at the long courses of the rivers, at the vast compass of the oceans, at the circular motion of the stars, and they pass by themselves without wondering” – St. Augustine
If someone were to ask me, “Swapna, what’s the one invention on earth that most amazes and fascinates you?”, I think the only answer that comes to my mind is – we human beings and our amazing human body. I often think and wonder what kind of a master plan our creator had while designing and equipping us with all these fascinating machinery which we so easily brush off as just ordinary organs or average parts of body. I think the below poem by St. Augustine perfectly embodies my sentiments.
- Did you know that our brain is the most complex machine in the universe? It has about 100 Billion (100,000,000,000) Neurons – which is as many cells as there are stars in the milky way!!!
- The Bugatti Veyron Super Sport is one of the fastest certified car in the world which can travel at 430.9 kph and our thoughts travel effortlessly at pretty much the same speed – 428 kph!!!
- There are 176,000 km myelinated axons in our brain – which can wrap around the earth’s equator four-and-a-half times!!!
And the list is endless – each and every part and organ of our body is a super specialized machine in itself.
So now do we feel like being a little bit more grateful about our bodies and treating it with the respect it deserves and not taking ourselves for granted. The truth is that we are super machines and we can achieve anything that our mind can conceive and believe as said in the hallmark expression by famous author Napolean Hill (author of Think & Grow Rich).
And this is also the essence of the philosophy behind being a Dream Doer because the only person that can save you is you. So get to work – you already have all that you need, to go out daringly into the world and achieve every single dream that you can Dare to Dream.
