Do you agree with the statement that any person is capable of fantastic success and outstanding discoveries? Just do not say that this is impossible, and all this is stupid. Otherwise, be like the hero of one famous parable: Walking through the forest, the traveler met a man who chopped a tree. Work at the man went slowly, as his ax blunted. Then the traveler advised him to sharpen it. To which he heard such an answer: “There’s no time for me to sharpen!” I need to cut! “And he continued to suffer …”Sharpen” skills, forcing your brain to work, you will save not only time, but also strength. A little patience and you will learn to achieve everything you want.To do this, you can use simple rules:Rule 1. ConcentrateAre you sure that you are always able to think “about what you need” and “when you need it”?Then, take a simple test: put the watch in front of you, and within 3 minutes only think of the running arrow, completely concentrate on the stopwatch. Happened? And who remembered a minute ago that you need to go to the bank on your way home?The secret of concentrated attention is to highlight only an interesting thought, important and necessary. Chinese wisdom says: “when you wash a cup – think about a cup.” If the task is boring, attention is dissipated.Turn an important business into an exciting business for yourself. Solving the problem of mindfulness is an important step towards developing the abilities of the brain .Rule 2. ActStill think that life gives you little chance of success? Alas, most people like to be in perpetual expectation, rather than actively act. And the reason is banal laziness. Although, not only laziness hinders, but also the uncertainty about one’s own abilities and capabilities.It’s time to change your life! Anyone who does not want to “knock the sour cream out of milk,” as in the famous parable of the two frogs who fell into the jar, will certainly “drown”. Success – selects active people.An active person constantly seeks to feel, learn something new, makes his brain work at full strength. Describe your day: go there somewhere, meet with something, call someone something. Choose for yourself a stimulant that gives you energy. For someone it’s a sport, someone has a cup of coffee in the morning, for someone it’s music.Every day, ask yourself the same question: “What did I do in a day to achieve what I wanted?”. Do not be afraid of failure. Being in a difficult situation, look at the problem with other people’s eyes (boss, foreigner, child). Look for an alternative, stand back – a minute of quiet thinking, will save hours of futile efforts.Rule 3. Believe in yourselfWhat kind of people are they driving the Mercedes? Style of clothes, voice, manner of holding – everything in them gives out those who are used to doing, find and use big money. These are people who constantly process a large amount of information, facts, so they are constantly “aware of their business.” How do they manage everything and debug it?It turns out that they, like the Japanese, actively “talk with sages”. Now you have this opportunity.Exercise for the search for wisdom:Fantasize. How do you imagine Aristotle? And how do you see Alexander of Macedon? Imagine in detail their appearance, manner of speaking, voice. And how would they behave, turn up in your situation?Exercise for observation:Set a goal, on the way home to find as many round objects or objects of yellow color. Over time, the task can be complicated, to search for items that are something like an umbrella.These two exercises allow you to activate the work of the brain. Your subconscious mind is a repository of centuries of knowledge. The cleverest thoughts of the past can easily be found in yourself. Believe that victory is yours. The more confidence, the closer the success.Rule 4. Break stereotypesIn the head, which lives by templates, fresh ideas are not born. Remember the great musicians, writers, artists or athletes – they all went beyond the usual ideas – broke the old and created a new one. At one time, Morihei Ueshibo, reforming various styles of struggle, created modern aikido.In chess – one original decision completely changes the entire course of the game. Do not be afraid to act “not like everyone else” – drop old installations and you will open new prospects!Rule 5. Treat life with humorDo not be afraid to laugh – a good joke will not only raise your spirits, but also help you find an extraordinary, right decision. It’s humor that breaks stereotypes that stop thinking. Look for funny situations in any situation.The main goal of the 4 brain project is that as many people as possible get the main conditions for a happy life – faith in themselves, in their strengths and knowledge.What do you think, what else should we do to make the brain work quickly and efficiently?
