The Possible You demonstrates how our mind can prevent us from being who we really are. Early childhood programs taught us how to think in fearful or imbalanced ways. Now we can learn how our minds actually "work", and how to use our minds to achieve anything we wish.

1 - Perceptual Reality and the Possible You
The problem with belief systems is that we believe them, and, more often than not, we are unaware of where any given Belief comes from or how we got it. To illustrate this, please consider a story: The Saga ofthe Boneless Ham.
A man and his wife have their three grown children in for Easter dinner. Every year, they have a large boneless ham as part of this dinner. This year, the man is in the kitchen helping prepare the meat, and he notices his wife cuts off both ends of the ham before she cooks it. Once quarter of the ham is in the trash before it is ever cooked.
After the meal is over, the kids are gone, and they are cleaning up, he turns to his wive and asks, "Honey, how come you cut off both ends of the ham and threw them out before you cooked it?"
She stops ... pauses ... and ponders on it for a few moments, before she answers, "Well, that's the way my Mother always did it."
At Thanksgiving, they have diner at her Mother's, and there on the table is a large turkey, and a big boneless ham, with both ends cut off.
After the meal, he goes up to his Mother-in-law and asks, "Mother, how come you cut off both ends of the boneless ham before you cooked it?"
She stops ... pauses ... and thinks about if for a minute or two, and answers, "Well, that's the way my Mother always did it."
Well, Grandma is still alive, and she's a modern kind of lady. She has her own condo in Vero Beach, Florida, and she has the whole family in every year between Christmas and New Year's. And, there on the table is a gigantic roast beef, a hugh turkey, and a large boneless ham, with both ends cut off.
Later, he goes up to her and asks, "Grandma, ho come you cut off both ends of the boneless ham before you cooked it?"
Without a moment's hesitation, she answers, "It's the only way it fits in the pan."
The point of the story is much of what we learn, we learn indirectly, without really knowing the reason we are doing what we are doing. When we are young, messages are sent, messages are received, and we are totally unaware of either happening. The result is we often end up with Beliefs which we have no idea of the concept behind.
