    Say:

    I am not talking about psychokinesis, the ability to move things with mental power alone. Nor am I talking about any other kind of miraculous power. To explain this seemingly magic phenomenon, I would like to share an experience of one of my college friends.

    Re: Writing for pleasure

    Next sentence. Say:

    When I was in the college journal club, I was assigned to interview a college fellow who had just won a gold medal in a national boxing competition. It was her first experience in competitive sports, and she had only been training for a year.

    I try to say that "just by writing the goals down specifically on paper, one could certain that they can achieve them but it is not some kind of psychonkinenis that he just need to sit there and use mental power to get things done". I hope this is a bit clearer
