Wankers Think Positive, Winners Retrain the Brain – Marisa Peer

Well mate, those aren’t her words exactly but this jolly English bird’s got some interesting insights and sports a right sexy British accent. At first I was like ‘Yeah, whatever…” but at about 9:02 she spins a yarn that made my mouth water. Anytime there’s a fit blonde Brit and I excrete saliva? Bloody hell, I’m paying attention! lol…

Although I don’t believe you can control the mind as easily as she proposes. We all need Tune In, Turn On and Drop Out so the body stops screaming at the brain.

But assuming all’s good under the hood then I’m definitely on board.

Here’s the 4 aspects of the brain she wants us to be aware of.

1) Your mind does exactly what it thinks it wants you to do. If you don’t have what you want you are not collaborating properly with your mind.

2) You mind is hardwired to move you toward pleasure and moving away from pain. This is a survival mechanism but we can choose what we link pain or pleasure to.

3) The way you feel about everything all the time boils down to the pictures you make in your head and the words you say to yourself. Collaborate with your brain to change the pictures you keep in your mind and the words you say to yourself.

4) Your mind loves what it is familiar. It’s programmed to keep going over and over again to what is familiar. If you are going to succeed at any level you have to make what is familiar unfamiliar, and what is unfamiliar familiar.

“First make your beliefs, then let your beliefs make you”. Thanks Marisa. Loved the ‘Lemon Lesson’. Keep up the great work! 😀
