Brain Plasticity

This is what we call brain plasticity.

Working with the brain to create new, better, more beneficial neural pathways.

Modern research has demonstrated the brain is malleable. Capable of creating new neural pathways and altering existing ones to improve our overall functioning and the functioning of our nervous system.

In 1890, psychologist William James already commented in his book The Principles of Psychology that “organic matter, especially nervous tissue, seems endowed with a very extraordinary degree of plasticity.”

By the 1960s, researchers began to investigate the capacity of adults having suffered massive strokes to regain functioning, thereby demonstrating the malleability of the brain.

Modern science has now proven the capacity of the brain to rewire itself after severe damage. I’m living proof of that. Having survived catastrophic injuries and accidents I shouldn’t have been able to survive taught me first hand how to dive deep into the resources of our brain.

Today, this is what I teach. I train “Athletes of the Mind.”

Your mind controls everything. Control your mind, control everything.
