“Our brains are very adaptable. We have the ability to physically change our brains by becoming more mindful of how we react or chose to react to our circumstances.”
You are the power of your business, whether you own your own business or work in a corporation. The power of YOU is the single most determining factor in your success or failure. In fact, it’s been said that, your internal belief system about business is the most important predictor of success or failure. What’s more you have the power to change your own brain to work for you rather than against you.
According to Dr Vaja Zatjirua, a Neurologist at the Namibia Brain Institute, “Our brains are very adaptable. We have the ability to physically change our brains by becoming more mindful of how we react or chose to react to our circumstances.”
Dr. Zatjirua goes on to explain that, “It is a myth that we only use 10 percent of our brains but it is important that you keep your brain healthy and active through activities that expand you mental like reading or learning for example.”
Joe Dispenza, in his book Evolve Your Brain notes that “For a long time, scientists believed that the brain was hardwired, meaning that change is impossible and that the system of responses and tendencies you inherited from your family is your destiny. But in fact, the brain possesses elasticity, an ability to shut down old pathways of thought and form new ones, at any age, at any time. Moreover it can do so relatively quickly especially compared to the usual evolutionary models in which time is measured in generations and eons and not in weeks.”
Norman Doidge in his book, The Brain that Changes Itself, says that “The idea that the brain can change its own structure and function through thought and activity is, I believe, the most important alteration in our view of the brain since we first sketched out its basic anatomy and the workings of its basic component, the neuron.”
Armed with this knowledge, you have the power to change your brain for the better, to truly achieve anything in life and become the master of your own destiny.
