Brain plasticity: This discovery is referred to as the “Discovery of The Decade.”
Our brains are not hardwired as once thought. Our brain is constantly making new connections as we experience life and learn new ideas, patterns and skills. These connections formulate our thoughts, beliefs, habits and emotions. The parts of the human brain that are directly related to motivation, emotional regulation, social awareness, and conscious decision-making are some of the most flexible neural circuits in the brain. These neural circuits act like software in a computer.
Change the software and you change the output. We now know that we can change our behaviours and our moods while continually improving our abilities to be more productive and successful throughout life. But we have to use specific neuro-cognitive strategies to lower stress and improve mental concentration in additions to “upgrading” our own software around money, business, health etc.
We know that our beliefs and habits are the causes of our actions and therefore our results. Beliefs and habits are neural networks that are part of our subconscious brain and making changes to them requires a re-training to formulate new neural patterns of thoughts and behaviour.
