Power of the Mind: 5 Ways Brain Research Can Help Your Business

THE POWER OF THE MIND HOW TO TRAIN YOURSELF TO BE MORE SUCCESSFUL Here are several important tips based on recent discoveries in brain research that can help us improve our personal and professional lives. USE VISUALIZATION TO LEARNA NEW SKILL Neuroplasticity is the ability of the brain to create new neural pathways. When we repeat a skill that we are trying to master, we strengthen the neural networks that represent that action. The same happens in the brain whether we perform the action or simply visualize it. Your brain cannot tell the difference. ACHIEVE YOUR GOALS BY KEEPNG YOUR MOUTH SHUT Achieve better work/life balance! Get a promotion! Dovble my Sales total! Get 5 new clients each month! Psychology tests have proven that when you tell someone your goal, you are less likely to do the work to realize that goal. Your brain mistakes the talking for the doing and is tricked into feeling like the goal has already been accomplished. 3 CHOOSE TO SMILE TO IMPROVE YOUR MOOD O Be angry Smile The Facial Feedback Hypothesis indicates that your brain cannot tell the difference between a posed smile or a genuine smile. A posed smile will elicit, physiologically, the same happi- ness response as a genuine smile. Your facial muscles cue your brain to experience that positive emotion. 4 UNDERSTAND EMOTIONAL PAIN TO DEVELOP EMPATHY Layoff! LAƻY! POOR PERFORMANCE! Consider that when we hurt someone emotionally, it can feel like the equivalent of breaking one of their bones. We can create a better world in our sphere of influence just by being mindful of this thought and using it to help develop our empathy towards others.
