How to Rewire Your Brain for Business Success!
Can you indeed rewire your brain for business success? I am in the fortunate position to answer the question affirmatively. Yes, you can—I am the living proof of achieving this feat, reaping the rewards. I created the business life of my dreams, and I am living a life I love.
Thinking back, it wasn’t easy, far from it, but I am going to make it easy for you! I am going to break it down into five steps.
Step one: Discovery
When I started my journey, I was over one million dollars in debt, and suffering from severe anxiety, fear of conflict, and low self-esteem. My business challenges nearly killed me. Then, by chance, I received a business management book as a gift. It introduced me to a process called neuroplasticity—the fact that the connections between our billions of brain cells are constantly changing.
I also learned there were tactics and strategies you can use to take control of this change, a phenomenon called self-directed neuroplasticity. The light bulb went on! Perhaps I could change the wiring within my brain and cure my anxiety, fears, and low self-esteem. Perhaps, too, I could become a successful businessperson and conquer my debt!
Step two: Homework
For the next five years, I threw myself into learning everything I could about self-directed neuroplasticity. There were many excellent texts written about the subject. None put all the facts together simply. I wanted to memorize them easily for use at work, rest, and play!
There was a lot of rubbish written in the self-help genre. I had to sort the wheat from the chaff. As a scientist, I also needed to know I was using evidence-based science.
Step three: Synthesis
Initially, I had a lot of disparate facts, but over time they coalesced into twelve must-knows. I now call them The 12 Keys to Wire Your Brain for Success.
Note I use the term “wire”, as I believe this word frames the process in a positive light, whereas “rewire” suggests at the outset all the mind needs fixing. Nothing could be further from the truth. Self-directed neuroplasticity can transform your natural abilities into super-strengths!
Step four: Application.
Once I had my 12 Keys, I had to apply them to both my personal life and to best business practices. Critical areas such as clarity of vision, personal power and motivation all received a major upgrade. I transformed my anxiety, fear of conflict, and low self-esteem into calmness, courage, and confidence.
I also discovered that with self-directed neuroplasticity, I could increase my emotional intelligence or EQ, and EQ determines over fifty percent of your business success.
Over the next few years, I created the business life of my dreams! My team blossomed, my clients were happy, and profit soared.
Step five: Practice.
Wiring your brain for success is an ongoing process. Our brains, circumstances, and environments change all the time, so we must learn to flex, adapt, and practice. It is a joy to have the 12 Keys to guide me on my journey as my life unfolds. They are my true North.
That is it in a nutshell!
Now, I said that I was going to make it easy for you, and I have. At the outset, I felt that many other people would appreciate this extraordinary science that promises so much, so I have developed a four-unit on-line course, Get Wired for Success! In it, you can access the 12 Keys now, and see how each one is applied to business success. I guarantee that you, too, can wire your brain for success!
