Do you think your brain acts as a big, logical supercomputer, analyzing all your information to give you the best option possible?
The more we learn about the human brain, the more we understand how strongly we are driven by our unconscious brain. In fact — our Unconscious Old Brains that focus on emotions and instinct dominate our Conscious New Brains where logic lives. We are not a logical supercomputer!
One of the reasons we humans hate change is that we’re programmed to avoid it — at all costs. That programming, along with so much more, serves to limit our success in our modern world.
As a Rebel with a Cause, I’ve spent the last decade exploring our brains and how we can best leverage them to create powerful, positive change. The good news is that we can shift away from our unconscious programming — when we understand how to adapt our thinking.
Here are the 12 Most Brainy Ways to Change Your Thinking and Grow Your Business. This all works for your life, too!
There are so many more ways we can change our thinking. These 12 are only the tip of the brainy iceberg.
The bottom line is simple. Pause, ask questions and don’t let autopilot take over your behaviors. Questions are a great way to engage your new logical brain — so Question, Question, Question!
