First coffee, then developing a growth mindset

In order to be successful at this thing called life, we need to understand how we operate, how our brain works, how we function, how we move forward and, most importantly, how we develop a growth mindset.

This week, I want to invite you to explore the science behind successful strategies for life change.

We are going to be talking neuroscience.

the ability of the brain to form and reorganize synaptic connections, especially in response to learning or experience or following injury.

Brain plasticity, also known as neuroplasticity, is a term that refers to the brain’s ability to change and adapt as a result of experience. When people say that the brain possesses plasticity, they are not suggesting that the brain is similar to plastic. Neuro refers to neurons, the nerve cells that are the building blocks of the brain and nervous system, and plasticity refers to the brain’s malleability. More on that here.

Tool of the week: This Neuroscientist Shows You the Secrets to Obtaining A Growth Mindset | Andrew Huberman

“Celebrate small victories. Your thoughts are a choice. Move towards fear. Lean into your negative experiences. No matter what the question is, action is the answer. Meditate. Breathe deeply. These are well-known concepts and mantras that many people have assimilated, through experience or through training. But what is the scientific explanation for why all these practices and beliefs work so well? What is happening on the level of the brain? On this episode of Health Theory with Tom Bilyeu, recognized neuroscientist Andrew Huberman details the science behind successful strategies for life change.”
