Do you also believe that some people are born genius? Or they become a genius later? Is it possible to increase the capabilities of the human brain?
Well, scientists used to believe that we cannot make any major change in the brain we are born with. But Neuroplasticity changed this concept completely.
Neuroplasticity: The brain’s ability to reorganize itself by forming new neural connections throughout life. Neuroplasticity allows the neurons in the brain to compensate for injury and disease and to adjust their activities in response to new situations or to changes in their environment.Source: Medicinenet
So now let’s get to those 10 things that can help us understand the power of our brain:
1. Understanding the programming
We need to understand how the brain works. So that we can make it work for us.
Just like a machine our brain is naturally programmed to work in a certain way. Unless we understand the programming, we’ll not be able to use it in a proper way.
2. The brain is also a muscle
Not only physically, but you also have to be mentally fit.
Success is often believed that some people are born with the abilities to get it. And not everyone is blessed with those abilities.
But the truth is, our brain is also a muscle. And we can make it better by hydration, nutrition, and exercise. If you also want your brain to be fit, you will have to keep learning something new.
3. We all are genius
It’s not about how smart are you. But it’s about how are you smart?
This is really upsetting — Most of us believe that people who don’t score well on tests. Or don’t get things easily, are mentally weak. But the fact is, they aren’t mentally weak.
Albert Einstein said Everyone is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.
It means you are also born with a special talent. You just need to recognize that. Because there is a genius in you as well.
4. Change your perceptions
How we react to things, depends on our perceptions.
70,000 thoughts pop us in our brain every single day. And it depends on us whether we use them in a positive or negative way. There will be no positivity in life you don’t change the old and negative beliefs.
We mean to say, that you get the results according to the codes you enter in the programming of your brain. So why not input something good to get better results?
5. Taking Feedback
Things can be improved if we start taking feedback seriously.
Feedback is a medium to understand what can be helpful for us in the real world. Sometimes people take negative feedback personally and sit down, frustrated.
But we believe that negative feedback comes with new opportunities and motivates us to learn something new so that we can do something better in life.
6. We can always do better
Whatever you can imagine, can be done by you.
Either you believe you can do or you cannot do, you are right. Because it’s all about believing in you. If you believe, you can. If you don’t believe, you can’t. To be better, first you have to place good thoughts into your mind.
7. Understanding the way of learning
If you really want to learn something, stay physically and mentally active.
To learn better, you have to become an explorer. A study says people understand things better when they explore places and meet people in person. You should not depend on just sayings.
When we visit places or meet someone personally, the experience and memories last longer.
8. Try being creative
The brain doesn’t learn while consuming things, it learns when we do something creative.
For being active and learning things quickly, it is important to be creative. When we get used to of consuming things, our learning process will slow down.
9. Always stay Active
The more active you are, the more your brain will be happier.
Our mind love activities. And there is nothing better than exercise to stay active. Because regular exercise increases our memory, thinking skills, and the ability to focus.
Why brain love activities? Actually, the brain needs lots of oxygen to function properly. And exercise helps us to deliver more oxygen to our brain.
10. Practice, practice, and practice
We’re rewarded in public for the practice, we did in private.
If you also want to become a genius, then you’ll have to practice like a genius.
Whenever you get a chance, whenever you are alone, practice your skill. Because your practice and your skill will make your identity in the world.
