Chapter 13 - The Brain
"You can't change who you are, but you can change what you have in
your head, you can refresh what you're thinking about, you can put
some fresh air in your brain." Ernesto Bertarelli
Swami Vivekananda has stated "Take up one idea. Make that one idea your
life - think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves,
every part of your body, be full of that idea, and just leave
every other idea alone. This is the way to success."
When I read this quote by Swami Vivekanada I was reminded of when
I heard Michael say he sold his boat so he could put all his concentration
on building his business and I am sure he did more than just sell
his boat but that story just stuck in my brain.
A quote from Deepak Chopra states "Our minds influence the key activity
of the brain, which then influences everything; perception, cognition,
thoughts and feelings, personal relationships; they're all a projection of you."
So it we think the right thoughts we are training our brain and if
we train it right we will project our new us to the people we come
in contact with.
Jay S. Walker has stated "All of imagination - everything that we think,
we feel, we sense - comes through the human brain. And once we create
new patterns in this brain, once we shape the brain in a new way, it
never returns to its original shape."
A quote by Mogan Housel “Money [is] ‘the greatest show on earth’
because of its ability to reveal things about people’s character
and values. How people invest their money tends to be hidden from
view. But how they spend is far more visible, so what it shows
about who you are can be even more insightful.”
According to Ambrose Beirce "Brain: an apparatus with which we
think we think."
