Double Your Brain Power
Do you think you have an "average" or perhaps an "above average" mental capacity?
Actually you have far more brainpower than you can begin to imagine. You have close to, or perhaps even beyond, *genius* potential!
You say you don't believe me?
The past ten years could well be called "the decade of the brain." Neuroscience now has the means of observing a healthy living brain in action.
Physicists have discovered parallels between the human brain, and Einstein's quantum universe.
Biological scientists are demystifying the brain's chemical and electrical mysteries. But still, trying to define our brain's ultimate capacity is like trying to place your finger on a globule of mercury.
The human mind is infinitely complex and subtle. And your amazing mind is no exception!
The Amazing Capacity of your Brain
But this figure is even more astounding when you consider that each nerve cell can interact with at least as many as 100,000 other nerve cells.
If we were to tabulate the potential capacity of your brain cells to make interconnections -- the resulting number would be at least 10.5 million kilometers long.
No known person has even approached using their full mental capacity. The human brain is virtually limitless.
It was once estimated we use about 10% of our mental potential. Today neuroscience has dropped that estimate to less than one percent. And even that figure seems overly optimistic!
Your "Thinking Cap"
Your cortex is actually split into two separate sides connected by a fantastically dense and complex highway of nerve fibers called the "corpus collosum."
In most people, the left side of the cerebral cortex deals with logical matters -- words, numbers, reasoning, and analysis. It spends a lot of time in the "beta" brainwave range.
The right side of your cerebral cortex, on the other hand, deals with imagination, images, color, day-dreaming, visualization, and pattern recognition. It tends to focus quite a bit in the "alpha" brainwave range so highly developed in meditators.
Are You Right-Brained OR Left-Brained?
If that's true, then we must assume that the great scientific genius Albert Einstein was left-brained -- and the great creative master of photography Ansel Adams would then have been right-brained.
But was this the case?
An examination of the notebooks of Albert Einstein and Ansel Adams pokes huge holes in this common theory. In fact, Einstein credited his greatest scientific insights not to left-brain logic -- but rather to his right-brain highly creative daydreaming.
And Ansel Adams credited his greatest art photographs not to his right-brain artistic "eye" -- but rather to his left-brain detailed analytical note taking.
Actually - our most powerful and expansive mental activities are those using *both sides* of our cortex.
When you describe yourself as primarily creative or intuitive (right-brained), or analytical and logical (left-brained), you are just describing the side of the cortex you have most successfully developed.
With the right nurturing, the other side of your cortex can also flourish and develop!
This has the potential to *double* your mind power!
Get Immediate Results
Great athletes do it. So do top executives, famous artists, and people from all walks of life who seek to excel in their lives.
On first reading, the following solution may seem too simple to be effective. Just give it a try, and you'll be amazed at the expanded depth of your mental capacity.
If you're analytical -- encourage yourself to daydream. And if you're instead predominantly creative -- encourage yourself to begin to logically analyze your creative efforts.
Notice as many details of life or a problem as possible. Activate your mind and ask yourself "what if." And begin to pay more attention to your mental wanderings.
Build Your Mental Focus
The instant you focus your amazing brain on a single thought, you fire up laser-like mental power. in that millisecond you actually physically strengthen your brain's neural networks attached to that thought or goal.
Mental focus physically builds your brainpower, and is the true key to peak performance and masters-level performance.

Success Lessons I Learned From My Single Mom
I was at a dinner party the other night when someone posed this question: Who has influenced your life the most? I thought for a moment and said what no one else said, "My mother."

Smile Your Way to Success
Smile brings beauty to your face, charm to your personality and money to your pocket; apart from being your recognition as a cheerful, friendly, loveable person.
Top 5 Sources of Energy Drain
Along with time and money, energy is one of your most valuable resources. And if you're a professional woman, it's a resource that's most likely in short supply. With the myriad number of professional and personal tasks you need to accomplish, while taking care of your family, you have very little - if any - energy left over for you. It's easy to understand your dilemma.
Are You the Reason for Your Lack of Success?
Have you ever noticed when playing a video game, or even working on a computer software program, that you sometimes wish it would go somewhere or do a particular task, but no matter what you do it won't do it.
Very few of us can pick up a complex task and ace it the first time we try it. Take typing. In all the years I taught it, I never had a single student sit down at the keyboard and type 60-70 words a minute their first time.

Why Aren?t You Seriously Wealthy Already?
I bet you want to be wealthy, but somehow the money eludes you.
The Parable of the Touchstone
The Great Library of Alexandria once held the wisdom of the ancient world. When it burned down, billions of invaluable thoughts perished. One book, however, survived. Since it wasn't considered a valuable book, a poor man bought it for a few coppers. He was not very literate and thought the book dull. The only thing of interest to him was a thin strip of vellum. Written on it was the secret known as the "Touchstone."
Success Without Excuses
If we hope to achieve any worthwhile goal it will be necessary to throw out the excuses. The excuses usually do not deceive others but they may well deceive ourselves.
The Characteristics of a Winner
As kind of a hobby I like to watch people. Just kind of sit back and quietly watch how they react and respond to others and their environment. Through the course of this activity I've noticed a few things that the real winners in life seem to have in common. I'd like to point out a few of these characteristics for the purpose of reinforcing them.
Top 10 Traits of Highly Successful People - That You Can Learn!
We have all read about people who are successful briefly. They win a gold medal, make a fortune, or star in one great movie?and then disappear. Or, there are those like Marilyn Monroe and Howard Hughes who achieve extraordinary success, at the cost of their own lives. These examples do not inspire me!

Creating an Action Plan
So you've bought into the idea that you need to live life on purpose. You have an intention; you have goals. You know what you want life to be like five or ten years from now. But taking that first step to make it happen is daunting. Try this.
Run Towards Fear: A Prescription For Success
Fear, or negative anxiety, is the modern day bubonic plague, infecting millions upon millions of people. It spreads with viral effect, and leaves behind consequences of mediocrity and regret. This "plague" is partly due to societal influences (particularly in a post-9/11 era) and partly due to individual issues (the tendency to avoid confrontation of that which we fear). However, whatever the cause, a vaccine is available, and it takes the form of moving towards that which we are most afraid of. Immediately.

Vacation Your Way to Success!
All work and no play makes Johnny a dull boy they say. It also makes you unsuccessful. The fact is that a well placed vacation can do wonders for every area of your life. I am thinking about this because I am about to go sit on the beach for a few weeks! So in this busy world, where we are driven to be producing all the time, it is good to be reminded that a break is sometimes the best thing to move us forward in the long run.
I Havent Failed...I Just Havent Finished Yet
How many times do we fail at something, then attemp to justify that failure by saying "I knew I couldn't do it!". Perhaps, that was the very reason for the failure in the first place. One should never expect to succeed with a negative outlook. We must remain positive in all things. By giving in to a negative attitude, we set ourselves up to be a failure from the beginning.
