I really enjoyed learning that doing an exercise improves your body by 30% while visualizing the same experience over time resulted in a 22% improvement. Let me know what you think about this after you watch the video. The book is free, however, if you are already subscribing to Audible as I am it is not free.

New studies prove that giving to others has a positive effect on your brain. The "warm glow" we experience is the pleasant sensation we get when we help others. Does it matter who we help? It has been found that humans prosper from social connections. Studies have discovered, that when a person gives' they have reduced brain activity in the amygdala. This is the area of the brain that concentrates on stress, anxiety, phobias and PTSD. MRI scans support the positive effect giving will have on your brain. Who would have thought making the world a better place for others, would also make it a better place for you.

Self talk seems to effect every living creature. Scientists have looked at various methods to save  endangered coral reefs for years, looking at everything from growing them in labs to making them pollution resistant.  A new study suggests that sounds from healthy reefs could also play a role in saving them. Known as "acoustic enrichment," researchers believe that putting underwater speakers near the dying reefs could help bring young fish to the reefs and restore them.  Learn more from Fox News: Coral Reefs.

GOALS? or VISION BOARDS? or both?

Science Says Only 8 Percent of People Actually Achieve Their Goals (Inc.com) Harvard Says Those With Goals Are 10x More Likely to Succeed.

Which one is it???

Maybe you've heard Oprah or Arnold Schwarzenegger say  “Vision Boards” are the essential Secret!    Others say VB's are time-wasting propaganda.   Did you know that most of those who worked on the movie “The Secret”  (based on the "Law of Attraction") are now broke? 

So do they work or not???

If goals don’t work, what does?   If vision boards don’t work, what does?

Does ANYTHING WORK?   

Here’s the exact problem you face:  You DON’T KNOW what works!  And you are super frustrated with parts or even all of your life. 

Give our self-talk plan a try - free that's right - free for 30 days!

Behavioral riddle:  You have been put in a cage, stuck behind titanium bars.  There is no way out.  To live through this ordeal you must eat 240 tiny pellets of food every hour.  The problem is they are outside the cage and grabbing them quickly seems almost impossible.  When you beginning the process it takes you 30 seconds per pellet.  If you continue to do things the same way you will only consume half the food you need for survival.  You will starve to death.

The answer:  You must expand your thinking and complete the task in a faster manner.

 

Impossible, Right!!!!! Not exactly.  The story is actually based on research done on squirrel monkeys.  After just under 500 tries the monkeys were more proficient at their task.  Their new mindset saved their lives.  So how does that relate to your life?  Well we have all heard the old saying, "practice makes perfect."  What makes this so interesting is that the researchers were able to scan these monkeys brains.  They found that as the monkeys reached over and over for the pellets that the cortical area being activated by the task had increased several times over.  That is precisely what saved their lives, through mere repetition, each monkey had expanded the section of its brain necessary for accomplishing this task.  Recent studies in neuroscience have proven that this process works identically in human brains.
