Get smarter at any age! If you’ve ever wanted to have a sharper mind with greater focus, better memory, more patient, creativity and resilience, then this interview with Dr. Michael Merzenich, the “father of brain plasticity” is for you!

Learn how to exercise your mind and get it sharper than ever.

Learn how to keep your mind strong into your golden years, and for seniors, how you can roll back the clock, and get a smarter brain at any age. And for parents, key tips to help your kids grow up smarter, and more engaged than ever!

Dr. Michael Merzenich is the pioneer in brain plasticity, or the ability to change the brain. According to him, the brain is not fixed as we’ve been taught, but can work better if we work on it. And not just a little, but huge changes. This means you could change careers, become an entrepreneur, or a singer, or do something completely outside your comfort zone and brain-power if you want. You can change your mind to be able to do anything.

Your IQ is not fixed. Your memory is not fixed. And you do not need to lose brain cells or get fuzzy-brained as you age. As he says “The brain is plastic till you die. You cannot kill it until you die. It is the greatest trick. We all have the capacity to be greater and get stronger.”

In this interview he suggests ways to make your brain stronger.

It’s an especially important interview for seniors, for parents, kids, and for returning veterans. For parents he discusses ways to increase children’s intelligence, and the dangers, and benefits of their technology. For seniors, he discusses ways to prevent trips, falls, hip fractures, and other potentially life-threatening injuries, through specific brain strategies.

And for all of us, he shows how we can enrich our lives by having sharper, more resilient, and smarter minds.

Deepak Chopra often talks about strengthening your brain. Wayne Dyer’s discussed it. Tony Robbins talks about NLP. And Dr. Michael Merzenich helps you life muscles with the mind, simply and easily, to give you the super-powered brain you always wished you had!

Lastly, as someone who has met the Dalai Lama several times, Dr. Merzenich discusses ways we can use our minds to increase compassion, kindness, happiness, and joy. These are things we could all use more of!!!

Dr. Michael Merzenich – Father of Brain Plasticity Shares How to Get Smarter, More Focused, Boost Our Kids IQ’s & Heal the Brain! Important lessons for children, parents, seniors, veterans, entrepreneurs & all of us! Health | Self-Help | Inspire
