Goal-Setting Influences Your Nervous System
Our body is controlled by mind. Mind controls the nervous system. A nervous system is similar to a bio-telephonic line or nerve cells, throughout the body which carries messages from one part of the body to brain or spinal cord and from there to respective parts of the body. Our body has got fifty trillion (50,000,000,000,000) cells. They are independent and interwoven . Any one cell cannot survive independently. They are mutually affected by each other.
Deepak Chopra, an international famous doctor, who is invited throughout the world for his talk has dedicated his life to investigate and teach the relation between mind and body. Initially, it was believed that mind only thinks and that there is no biological or chemical basis for thinking and emotion. Doctors used to say “Your body is OK, you just think that there is a pain.” Now, as Dr.Deepak Chopra has clearly explained in several of his books including “Ageless Body Timeless Mind” that every such fear is not just in mind. There are chemicals which are associated with fear. And these are not just in your mind but in several parts of your whole body. When such chemicals are associate with, fear creeps up in body, and the mind experiences fear. In this way your mind and body are related.
It means that goal setting is not only mental exercise but it activates the whole body towards your goals.
