It's all here in your mind

Harry Potter, book one. the sorting hat

"Not Slytherin, eh?" Said the small voice. "Are you sure? You could be great, you know, it's all here in your head, and slytherin will help you on the way to greatness...."

I don't quite understand "it's all here in your head''. What is in Harry Potter's head the sorting hat believes? Greatness? I don't know greatness can be in people's heads.

    I would say it was the potential to be great that was locked away in Harry's head, and that he was unaware of this.

    You will no doubt find many more things in these books which do make 'normal' sense. That's the nature of Magic.:)
