Goals vs. Worry Vs. Genius

Worried about something?
The act of setting goals turns off the worry center in the right pre-frontal cortex of your brain and the fear centers that are governed by something known as your amygdala.

 

Do you want to activate the genius part of your brain?

Setting a goal activates a part of your brain that motivates you and gets you to anticipate things……Your left pre-frontal cortex of your brain is activated by setting goals, and then is reinforced by focusing on how you can achieve them – versus giving any focus or attention on why you can’t.

 

So – each day, take just a moment to write down three things (or more) that you want to achieve and/or things that relate to your goal – and then take action on at least one of them. This generates the critical anticipation and the behavior that reinforces it all.
