Your strongest muscle and your worst enemy is your brain. Train it well
Although your brain accounts for less than 2% of your bodyweight, it consumes 20% of your body’s total energy. Many underestimate its power in improving our performance, our physical health, and our experience of life. MyndDojo is your opportunity to understand and capitalise on your potentiality untapped via your grey matter.
We can literally rewire our brain by flexing our mind just like any other muscle. Doing this myself was a big part in my healing from anxiety and depression.
Fairly recent study has discovered that our brain has Neuroplasticity; it can literally adapt and change based on our experiences. Previously it was thought that we had a bunch of brain cells and they deteriorated with age. Now we know that in some circumstances, in the right environment and the right practice, our brain experiences neurogenesis. New brain cells grow.
Have you ever heard we can create our reality through our thinking?
It is true. The way we think, specifically about ourselves turns into our reality because if we draw inaccurate conclusions about who we are and what we’re capable of doing, we’ll always leave our full potentiality untapped.
Our thoughts are a catalyst for self-perpetuating cycles. The language we use internally shapes our experience of life, the way we interact with other, and our relationship with ourselves. Basically, what we think directly influences how we feel and thus, the action we take.
It’s like when we’re in the gym. If we think we can’t push out the last few reps, we will feel the anticipation of the pain of pushing out those last few reps, which will stop us even trying, which will reinforce our belief we can’t do those last few reps.
We can apply the same theory to anything. At work, if you don’t think you’re good enough to do a certain task, it will affect how you approach the task because the fear of failure of will limit you and this limited action will limit your success in the task, therefore reinforcing your belief you weren’t good enough to do it in the first place.
