The human brain. A beautiful, and perfect design of cells, nerves, neurons, all working harmoniously together. It can work for you, and in the same instance, against you. Today, our world is changing at a rapid pace. New technology being introduced constantly, information spreading at an alarming rate, and a thirst for more knowledge. Whether you think so or not, there is a battle going on in your mind. Every thought you have, every interaction you have with someone, and what you watch and read—factor in on how your mind works.
Nowadays, it’s easy to get caught up in mundane things, and let your brain go on autopilot. Without even knowing it, you don’t think for yourself anymore. As a species, we are relying on technology more and more. Instead, we should think more for ourselves and delve deep into our conscious thoughts. Take the time to really examine how you think, and what you think about. Are they your thoughts? chances are: not all of them. Throughout our lives, we have been influenced and persuaded by people, entertainment, and technology. Once you go over your thought process, you will discern which thoughts are your own, and those that are not.
Now that you’ve rebooted your mind, it’s crucial that you do not fall into the trap of psychology and persuasion from other people. It will be a process, but over time you will get better. Your mind is just like a muscle: it must constantly be exercised for maximized benefit. The more you train it, the better equipped it will be for you.
“Whether you think you can or can’t, you’re right.”-Henry Ford
