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

If you’ve ever wondered what the most successful people in the world know that the rest of us don’t, then do we have the show for you!

Today we’re going to talk with one of the most positive researchers in the world! * Bio at bottom. His name is Shawn Achor and he’s one of the world’s leading experts on the connection between happiness and success.

His research on mindset made the cover of Harvard Business Review, his TED talk is one of the most popular with over 11 million views, he’s lectured or worked with over a third of the Fortune 100 companies, as well as the NFL, the NBA, the Pentagon and the White House.

Shawn is the author of New York Times best-selling books The Happiness Advantage (2010) and Before Happiness (2013) and he recently did a two-hour interview with Oprah at her house to discuss his mission to bring positive psychology to the world.

Today we’re going to talk using positive psychology to rewrite your own maps, and completely transform your life. This means greater success at work, happiness at home, and new outlook, for a new you.

It’s come at an incredible time too. Our show hits our one month anniversary, tomorrow. At present we have thousands of listeners in at least 78 countries, we’re growing exponentially with today being our highest growth day ever, and this morning, we woke up to find we’re the #15 self-help show in the world…all in under one month.

I want to talk with Steve about this, about how our mindset and our maps truly create our reality -> and how to use that to our advantage!

So what’s the goal of today’s show: To give you the advice you need to become a “positive genius” and bring tremendous success into your life!

Topics include:

  • What creates greater levels of happiness.
  • Why when you’re happy first, everything improves –
    • How happiness is really is first step before success.
  • Most important: First have to believe change is possible –
    • Understanding this is the biggest change in positive psychology movement
  • Understanding why happiness must precede success and why success does NOT bring happiness
    • This is why “successful” movie stars, musicians, professional athletes, and even tenured professors are not happy.
    • And is why Oprah was depressed at the height of her career
    • And why Shawn Achor himself was depressed while at Harvard
  • Understanding that it’s not about your genes, even if you’re “pre-disposed” toward something
  • May have genes that predispose you, but it’s not about your genes.
  • Making small changes in your life on a daily basis can have major impact on rewiring your mind.
  • Small changes have macro-level affects on our intelligence creativity and ability to be positive.
  • Big question is: What’s the smallest intervention possible?

 

  • Key Exercise: For 21 days in a row think of 3 things they’re grateful for each morning or each day you get into work (CHECK OUT OUR HAPPINESS MEDITATION FOR A SIMILAR GUIDED MEDITATION EXERCISE)
    • This activity of scanning the world is extremely powerful. It can take people who have been genetically low-level pessimists, and in 21 days turn them into life-long optimists!!!
    • Doing this exercise with 4 year olds at the dinner table, having them scan for things to be grateful for, can turn them from lifelong default pessimist to lifelong optimist.
  • Every outcome improves when human brain is positive first
    • As important children practice this as brushing their teeth or eating breakfast.
    • An extremely important habit for both kids and adults alike – for adults important to practice this before going to work, or first thing when they get in to work.
      • Important note on this exercise: Must be things are grateful for that are NEW (that’s occurred over last 24 hours and why)
      • Rewires the brain to start to scan for the positive and see the opportunities that are around you.
    • Without exercises like this, your ability to focus on the positive can atrophy.
    • 5 HABITS THAT CREATE POSITIVE CHANGE
      • Every day when get into work, first job to write 2 minute positive email praising or thanking someone they know.
      • Do this for just 3 days in a row and people literally get addicted to it, and others write great emails back.
      • 21 days later on your social connection score is off the chart in social support, because you have 21 people you’ve meaningfully activated.
    • The Single greatest predictor of long term happiness is breathe, depth, and meaning of social networks.
    • Social connection is as predictive of life expectancy as the food you eat, how much exercise you do, and even whether you smoke or not.
    • Social connections are why western males don’t live as long as their female counterparts, and why western males are so much more likely to have heart-attacks.
    • Success rarely leads to happiness
    • However, if you can get someone to be positive, they rise to the highest possibility within your band of potential
    • Lucky vs. unlucky people
    • Unlucky people are simply not focused on the positives and so don’t see the potential around them.
    • Amazing study about lucky vs. unlucky people – the “lucky” people saw opportunity the pessimists or “unlucky” people did not.
    • In 21 days can make 1 positive habit
    • Discussed why some army rangers (optomists) see a 600 foot hill as 600 feet and scramble for safety, while other soldiers (pessimists) see it as 900 feet, and give up under attack without even attempting the hill.
    • Shared a study about coffee shop reward cards and the lessons learned.
      • Never start goal from zero – instead anytime make resolution or create goal, write down three accomplishments already had, or resolutions you were already able to keep.
      • Showing what you’ve already accomplished (aka not starting from zero) fuel’s growth toward other activities.
      • This is also power of journaling – share one positive experience they had.
    • Shawn Achor has started a 21 day O-course with Oprah to help retrain people’s minds for happiness. It’s at Oprah.com/happiness
    • Many Fortune 100 companies are implementing these happiness strategies including: CEO Habitat for Humanity, Buick, Mckenzie company
    • Worked with Google and Laszlo Bock as well. 
      • Showed how 2 minutes of sitting silently at computer / aka meditating can make a HUGE difference on employees performance and happiness. 
    • Realize the poison of a victim mentality
      • It’s not about our genes, the market or what others have done to us.
    • It’s a fallacy that we can’t change other people. If we’re positive we can have a big impact.
      • We can greatly influence them and make them positive
      • Focus on the low-hanging fruit, grass-roots, be a positive influence on those directly around you.
      • For instance, don’t go for your boss, but your co-workers around you.
    • California Wave campaign in extreme high-crime neighborhood.
      • Officers went door to door – were not well received
      • Officers then started smiling and waving to everyone.
      • Officers became engaged with community and crime dramatically dropped
    • Shawn Achor worked with White House
      • Suggestion made during Baltimore protests that a wave campaign to build community could have a more positive impact than beefing up police security
    • Hospital campaign modeled after the Hilton.
      • When patient comes w/in 10 feet make eye contact.
      • At five feet see if there’s anything you can do to help them.
      • Dramatically improved people’s response to hospital, their likelihood to recommend the hospital, the likelihood to return to the same hospital, and quite possibly, their healing as well!
      • Dramatically improved patient care!
    • Importance you don’t ‘delay’ happiness
    • You are not your genes and your environment, you can change.

Today I’ll be talking with Conor Brennan, the #1 international New York Times best-selling author of Little Princes, and a genuine tried and true super-hero if you ask me.

Today we’ll be talking about his adventure from ordinary to extraordinary, a reluctant hero who helped and saved the lives of countless youth in Nepal, and has helped many illegally orphaned or even enslaved children of Nepal be reunited with their families.

I want to understand how he grew the strength and conviction to do what he did, where it came from, and how he went from near penny-less and jobless, to helping thousands along the way. And how he took himself into the mountains, just before snow-season on an epic adventure of Hollywood proportions….though I’m guessing he wouldn’t call it that at all.

So today we’ll look at faith, having strength, believing in what you’re doing, and putting one foot in front of the other, even if wobbly sticks are the only thing holding you up.

Plus Nepalese Toilets, coconut mattresses, and what in the world dive-bombing monkeys have to do with anything.

Questions and Topics Include:

  8. How’d Conor feel when he got back to Nepal a year later.
  9. How he discovered many of the orphaned kids had been essentially stolen from their parents by child traffickers.
  10. How seven kids were taken away and sold into slavery – and while Connor was back in New York
  11. What Conor’s goals were when going back
    1. Find the kids
    2. Reunite them with their families
    3. These were the goals of the new Next Generation Nepal (NGN)
  12. How Conor found faith while over there
  13. How he began to miraculously find the kids…and with one close to death
  14. How Conor decided to go into the Himalayas just before the winter to try and reunite the kids with their parents
  15. What he found in the mountain villages
  16. How he met his future wife before this adventure – and was almost stranded for the winter without being able to see her.
  17. How are the kids doing now?
  18. Where is NGN now?
  19. How people can help the kids of Nepal?

We’re always talking about how YOU can improve yourself and YOU can change your life, but it’s often exhausting and filled with worry, and how do we know what’s best for us anyway?

Well if you’ve ever wondered if you’re trying too hard, striving in the wrong direction, or have no idea where to go-or how to right the ship, then do we have the show for you!

Today we’ll be talking with Toesha Silver, and she’s here not a minute too soon! She’s the best-selling author of Outrageous Openness and the recently released Change Me Prayers: The Hidden Power of Surrender.

Today we’re going to talk about a very powerful way to live. It’s called Outrageous Openness, or how to be open to the world around us and the divine within or how to seek a divine plan so life happens through us, and for us, rather than by us. That plus why giving away your Seinfeld collection, may just set you free.

Topics Include:

  1. Life happening through you and for you, rather than by you
  2. Scammed by scammer, but the money returned
  3. It’s about creating space to allow
  4. Not about chasing, pushing, grasping
  5. Tosha’s Story
    1. Was very sick for 3 years
    2. Idea of offering to a force of love
    3. Not about asking for help with “my” problem
    4. What would happen if it stopped being my problem, my life, the “small self” ownership
    5. If I get out this life is now owned by you, show me the actions you want me to take

  6. How do you stay out of the trap of striving, wanting, and worrying

  8. So important to create space rather than pushing to make it happen
  9. Offer it to the divine and say “show me the first step”
  10. What’s the Trouble with the Law of Attraction
    1. The energetic part is great, we attract according to our vibration
      1. Keep vibration high will attract to that
      2. If it’s low (anger, darkness, etc.) will attract to that
    2. Trouble is, it’s often used to give a shopping list…like shopping list to Costco
    3. Problem is, there’s often a divine plan that’s far greater for us
  11. How do we let go without losing our grandest vision
  12. Think of what you’re doing on behalf of love, and love knows all the steps that need to happen
  13. Instead of saying I need say I offer
    1. Need hands open to receive.
    2. Become able to bless the obstacles
  14. Vision boards are beautiful, but very limiting, very small
  15. I am here to serve love,
  16. Think of inviting Love in as an ally
    1. Use very simple prayers (and meditation) of invitation
      1. Help me to center, help me to trust love
    2. Having a God Box – putting all of your worries in your God Box
    3. How to let go (of Seinfeld) and de-clutter
    4. Having a sacred fire with our vision boards
    5. The breadcrumb trail – when what you desire is offered to the divine you start to get shown a trail
    6. Offering does not mean passivity
    7. How to listen and hear – an inner knowing
    8. How do we cultivate the inner knowing
      1. Part is through the prayers – offering it over
    9. It’s not do more, strive more, give more, but instead get centered and OFFER back
      1. Completely different recalibration of your energy
    10. What Surrendering Really Means
