While riding with my youngest son, I was listening to a inspirational message. In the speech, the speaker mentioned that your brain is worth BILLIONS! My son's eyes were widened with amazement. A Revelation that HE was worth something! I really enjoy seeing kids when they "get it". Their body language changes, and they walk with a different step. They gain a small amount of confidence.

The speaker went on to describe the power of the human brain. It would take the Empire State Building full of computers at max capacity to come near the mental capacity of ONE HUMAN BRAIN! Since that type of operation is very massive, it would require a cooling system. What is needed to cool this operation? Answer: The water that flows through the entire Mississippi River daily would be needed just to cool of this massive computer system. One Human Brain! Amazing!!
The famous Economist, the late Julian Simon, believed the Human Mind is the "Ultimate Resource". To prove the power of the brain, he took a bet on the possibility of 5 natural resources "running out"(in lay terms not economic terms:expressed in increasing/decreasing in price)When people bet Mr. Simon that we would " run out"natural resources, he took that bet, and won it! In other words, the resources increased in available quantity!
There are many reasons why he won the bet, but ultimately it is this fact: The Human Mind IS the Ultimate Resource. We will continue to expand and maximize our earthly resources to achieve great heights, thanks to our Billion Dollar Asset. If there is a "shortage" the human brain will seek out more efficient ways to make that resource last longer, or integrate other resources to "solve the problem". Our brains are powerful!

My final thought: What are you doing to maximize your Multi-Billion dollar asset?

Music for thought: The Yellow Jackets performing, "Revelation".
