You Can Increase Your Brainpower by: Steve Gillman What Do You Think?

Can you solve problems easily? Can you learn new things efficiently? Can you inc rease your brain power? Whatever you think and feel about these questions, those thoughts and feelings will have an effect on your brain function, because brain power and psychology are intimately connected. Expectation Checkmate in four moves, the book said, so I looked until I found it. I love che ss puzzles, and I used to think those elegant solutions were not often possible in real games. Then it occurred to me that they probably are there, but that wit hout the expectation of finding them, I settled for less worthy moves. I find th e elegant ones more often now.

Are you beginning to see how expectation and belief can expand or limit not only your mind, but your life? So how do you apply this to increasing your brain pow er? What Can You Do? I'll never say that anything is possible, but what you think you can do certainl y affects what you accomplish. If you think you can increase your brain power, y ou are far more likely to do what is necessary to get that result. Do you think you can? Do you think you are intelligent? If not, how do you change your outloo k? Don't worry. I'm not going to tell you to stand in front of a mirror making posi tive affirmations. There is an easier way. Evidence Is More Powerful Than Affirmation What you look for, you find, and this changes your mind. Want to prove this to y ourself? Watch for polite drivers for a few days, making a mental note to yourse lf each time you see one. Focus just on the polite ones, ignoring the rest. It w ill change your experience of driving in a positive way. Then watch for rude dri vers for a few days, and you'll begin to see them all over. If you actually do the exercise above, you'll get the point. You experience the world not just according to what is there, but even more according to what you p ay attention to. Now, to apply this to your thinking process: Find your successes. Notice when you learn something new. Write it down even. Po int out your problem-solving successes to yourself, and you'll have more of them . When you are thinking clearly and effectively, tell yourself, "Look at that br ain go!" Telling yourself you are intelligent may help, but evidence is more convincing t han affirmation. So if you are working to improve your mind, just watch, and you will find examples of progress, however large or small. Focus on these, and rem ember them. You can start doing this right now.
