Rewiring Your Brain For Success – Quantum Physics of Beliefs

Rewiring Your Brain For Success – Quantum Physics of Beliefs

A recent edition of The New Yorker magazine published an article about neuroscience  research on the way the brain retrieves memories.

If you have been my coaching client, you know that your attitude and behavior — the two things that make you successful — are heavily influenced by your memories. For example, if you have experienced a painful failure in the past, you are more likely to avoid taking risks, even when they are smart risks.

Similarly, if you have had successes in the past, you are more likely to take actions to repeat those successes, if you have vivid positive memories about them. The reason that this research is so important is because it shows that we can:

Edit our bad memories so that they don’t hold us back.

Edit our good memories so that they propel us forward.

In other words, you can literally rewire your brain to make you more successful.


Weakening Your Bad Memories

To extract the poisonous fangs of your bad memories, bring the memory into your mind, and then imagine it getting smaller and dimmer, like you are watching a tiny B&W TV.

Now add details that scramble the memory. For instance, if you are remembering a time when you flubbed a presentation, turn the audience (the little bitty audience in the little bitty screen) so that they are all wearing clown suits.

Do this five or 10 times and you’ll discover that the bad memory simply doesn’t sting any longer. If anything, the memory of that presentation will make you chuckle, because you have literally and physically rewired your brain.

Strengthening Your Good Memories

To make your good memories more powerful and motivating, you do the same thing in reverse. You call the memory up as vividly as you can, on a huge IMAX, surround-sound screen. Make it bright and loud.

Most importantly, insert or increase the wonderful feelings that you experienced in that situation.

Do this five or 10 times and you’ll discover that what was once just a happy memory is now a driving motivation. The more you experience the memory, the more you’ll want to make it real again.

I have been using this method on and off for years, without really understanding why it works. Now that I know the neuroscience behind it, I am going to make editing and improving my memories into a daily habit.


About Dr. Surya

Using Quantum Physics and business research, Dr. Surya explores the correlation between the science of consciousness and patterns in the business world, to suggest innovative ways of using this wisdom to lead and succeed in a business environment that is constantly evolving at a rapid pace. Self-awareness is the awareness of the self as separate from the thoughts that are occurring at any point in time. Without self-awareness the self perceives and believes the thoughts that are occurring to be who the self is. Self-awareness gives one the option or choice to choose thoughts being thought rather than simply thinking the thoughts that are stimulated from the accumulative events leading up to the circumstances of the moment. Along with his work as an Author, Writer, Blogger and popular Internet Radio Talk Show Host, Dr. Surya is in-demand as a public speaker. Clients include small to large corporations and individuals.
