What dreams and aspirations do you have for yourself? Do you know there is no limit to getting your goal if only you can personalise your brain?
Yes, you read that right.
The barrier between us and our dreams is our brains. I have heard and read in books that you can only see what you can imagine. Little did I know that there is a scientific explanation to it.
Now, it is more apparent that you can achieve what you want in life if you personalise your brain.
The brain is a complex organ that controls every process that regulates our body.
Our brain grows from our behaviours and environment. In other words, what we do or refuse to do daily shapes our brains.
The brain has the ability to restructure or rewire itself when it recognizes the need for adaptation. This means it can continue developing and changing throughout life.
Several research has established that learning changes the structure of the brain. This means learning organises and reorganizes the brain.
What does this mean?
The misconception that the brain became fixed after a certain age has been debunked by the new research which revealed that the brain never stops changing in response to learning.
Our brain constantly changes to support learning. However, the primary driver of brain change is our behaviour.
Thus, there is no limit to what you can learn. The decision is yours if you can personalise your brain.
Benefits of personalizing your brain.
Here are some benefits of personalizing our brains:
- It gives us the ability to learn new things
- The ability to enhance existing cognitive capabilities
Ways to personalize your brain
Personalising your brain sounds complicated, but it is something that we do every day. We just need to be more intentional and specific about it.
Moreover, You can enhance the growth of your brain through meditation, reflective self-inquiry, mindfulness and asking meaningful questions and visualization.
If you want to be a high achiever, you must train your brain to think in a way that sets you up for success.
Also, through visualization, you can turn an abstract hope into a picture that inspires you and guides you.
It’s important to imagine who you want to be or what you want to accomplish.
For example, you might want to deliver an amazing presentation that will impress your boss. Think about yourself walking up to the front of the office and speaking with confidence, and then receiving a standing ovation.
In other words, when you envision your end goal, you and your brain can work towards recreating it in real life.
Learning environments also offer plenty of opportunities for focused attention, novelty, and challenge. This has been shown to stimulate positive changes in the brain.
Learn a new language
In conclusion, “common sense is not common” Our brains don’t grow at the same rate. Everyone has the responsibility for the growth they desire as regards their brain.
Therefore, we need to constantly challenge our brains to tailor it to what we desire.
