  • 1. Motivation +

    Guillaume Apollinaire

     

    Come to the edge, he said.
    They said: We are afraid.
    Come to the edge, he said.
    They came.
    He pushed them and they flew.

     

    Anais Nin

     

    And the day came when the risk it took to remain tight inside the bud was more painful than the risk it took to bloom.
     

     

     

     

  • 2. The power of the mind

    Marilyn vos Savant, The person with the highest IQ ever

     

    Not even neurologists can exactly estimate the capacity of the human brain nor decide whose brain has greater potential. One thing is sure. You can be smarter tomorrow than you are today. The mind can stretch - it can be strengthened, toned, and conditioned to perform miracles.

     

    (Robert K. Cooper, 2006.)

     

    The whole structure of the brain can be changed just by thinking - this phenomena is called neuroplasticity.


    (Gordon Dryden, Jeannette Vos, 1999.)

     

    Your Miracle Brain:
    Consists of a billion brain cells, including:
    100 billion active nerve cells
    900 billion other cells which stick together, nourish and isolate the active cells
    Can develop up to 20 thousand branches with 100 billion nerve cells per each of them

     

    Consists of four separate brains:
    the part responsible for your instincts
    the part responsible for your balance
    the part responsible for your emotions
    the cerebral cortex

     

    It consists two separate, harmoniously cooperating hemispheres:
    the left one (scientific)
    the right one (creative)

     

    It runs a switchboard which transfers billions of information between the left and the right hemisphere every second
    Has seven different intelligence centers
    Functions on four different wavelengths
    Is the key to your personal revolution in learning

     

    We learn:
    10% of what we read
    20% of what we hear
    30% of what we see
    50% of what we see and hear
    70% of what we say
    90% of what we say and do

     

    (Robert K. Cooper, 2006)

     

    Use your brains, all four of them:

    the brain in the head

     

    the brain in the gut
    There is around 100 billion neurons in it. The enteric nervous system is far faster than the brain the head; according to some estimations even a million times faster.

     

    the brain the heart
    The electromagnetic field of the heart is approximately 5 thousand times stronger than the field generated by the brain.
     

    the brain in the back (?)

  • 3. Your thoughts can either be your best friend or your greatest enemy

     

    Roger Dawson
     

    The road to success, fighting the fear
    Fear paralyzes, and idleness is the source of problems. Only action can solve problems.

     
    Woody Allen
     
    Talent is luck. The important thing in life is courage. Do you have the courage to use the talent that you were born with?
     
    Abraham Maslow
     
    You will either step forward into growth, or you will step backward into safety. Make the growth choice a dozen times a day.
