When things aren’t working as well as you wished
We all have phenomenal bodies and minds, even if they aren’t working as well as they could at this point, it does not mean this has to be the status quo. May I share with you the insights I have had, as well as tips and more information to Awaken your Genius Within You.
Some researchers believe we are using but 10% of our brain capacity, others claim that should we learn something new every 3 seconds, i.e. in the time it takes you to count 1001, 1002, 1003 – it would take us 3,000,000 years to reach the capacity of our brains. Is that incredible or what?
What if they are exaggerating? Let’s say it took 300 years to reach its capacity, would it not be absolutely awesome, even so? The bottom line is you could never fill up your brain in your lifetime…
So what are you doing with your brain?
We are keeping our brains hostage with worry, negative thoughts, judgments, fears, and various other mind-constructs that we do not even realize we are doing, because it has become habit. We believe “this is the way we are”. We are also keeping our brains in jail by remaining in this state of auto-pilot most of the time. Auto-pilot is good and bad; when we use it for tasks we have learnt to do automatically – it is good, if we use it for habitual non-productive thought, it undermines us and hurts us more than it helps us.
Change your mind, change your brain
The good news is that research has shown that we can change our brains physically using our minds and there are a number of ways to do this – with a little practice, of course. That is how we got to where we are now anyway; doing things over and over till it became part of us i.e. physically, in our brain circuitry. The best news is that we no longer have to settle for the things that bug us, trip us up, and make us struggle – we can change it.
Why are we stuck?
There are a number of reasons, the most prominent and debilitating one is that we do not know that we do not know, and therein lays the rub – this is applicable to the individual as well as for organizations, associations and other collectives.
Next time – I will talk more about Collaborating with your brain.
Your no. 1 top wish
If you had a fairy godmother that could wave a wand and grant you any wish you desire – what would you wish for? Wish your wish
… All the very best for the week ahead!
