Ignite Your Brain

According to the latest brain research, there are three key things anyone can do to increase their chances for achieving greater financial, health, and overall success. Despite article after article and the hundreds of motivational videos out there, these three things seem to be the ones that — once dealt with — turn goal setters into goal achievers. Behavioral and mindset expert John Assaraf shares insights from his new book, “Innercise: The New Science to Unlock Your Brain’s Hidden Power.”

1. Self-image and self-worth: “Research shows that you have two key types of self-image: the one you want people to see and the one that is hidden deep within your psyche — your subconscious. If your hidden self-image says ‘I am not smart enough, worthy enough, or deserving enough’ of the goal you want to achieve, you will sabotage your efforts to maintain the results your hidden self-image states and believes you deserve.”

2. Limiting beliefs: “Whenever you have limiting beliefs, your perceptions and behaviors align to make sure your limiting belief is true. Many people prefer mastering disappointment over mastering change, and limiting beliefs act as the filter for what you see and do in the world. In a sense, it’s a weird way to keep you sane and positive. Limiting beliefs keep you stuck in a paradigm that hinders your ability to achieve your life’s bigger goals and dreams.”

3. Fear: “The third goal-achieving crusher is fear. There are over 50 types of fear that hold people back. Fear of failure, fear of being embarrassed, ashamed, ridiculed, or judged — just to name a few.” “What most people don’t know,” John concludes, “is that all three of these subconscious activities deactivate the motivational circuits in the brain and activate the stress response circuits. When this happens, chances are that you will not take the necessary actions consistently enough to warrant the prize of goal achievement.”
