Who needs a boot camp (basic training) for learning and critical thinking?
Neuroscientists estimate that around 83% of students and 76% of executives lack the link between knowing and doing. It’s called a “critical thinking” step. Use it or lose it.
My dad used to say, “Something for nothing? Nix it, kid.”
At the end of this blog is a free, unconditional offer that helps your kids improve their grades, classes, and tests (including SAT, LSAT, GMAT, and MCAT). Do not reject it. If you are concerned about career advancements and raises (regardless of age), we have something of value for you too.
Why Should Executives In The Middle Of A Successful Career Care? Two words: information overload, the need to keep up with the latest technology and creativity without stress or anxiety? Are you the go-to person in your division or team? Are promotions having a hard time stopping learning and growing?
There are easy baby strategies at Boot Camp to figure out how to be that guy.
What are endorphins and dopamine and who cares?
See if you can permanently remember endorphins. When you’re excited for joy, exercising, eating spicy food, in love, or during an orgasm, think about endorphins. They act like natural morphine and come from the brain and body. They overcome pain and affect your emotions. Good material.
Dopamine is a flood of chemicals: neurotransmitters when you have desires and the anticipation of potential rewards. Get this: When we are curious, we just have to know more, want something (new car, new relationship), dopamine levels go up. It allows us to have an open mind and seek discoveries.
The flow of dopamine allows us to get a new insight into our prefrontal cortex, the structure of the brain that causes our thinking. PFC decides which thoughts are important and deserve to be activated for action. If you want to use critical thinking to make winning decisions, increase your dopamine levels. How? Activate your prefrontal cortex. How? Increase your curiosity and create a sense of want or need?
Make believe is the law of acting like
If you “come up with” new ideas that will give you a raise and a raise, it has value and your PFC starts to overproduce dopamine. Wait, but what if new things are irrelevant, boring and boring?
If I ask you to ‘make believe’ ‘smile’ this very second, can you do it? Put a fake happy smile on your face. Show the world your teeth. Sure, and something strange happens to your mind and body. You automatically feel better and better (if you continue to smile falsely) even if it is false, which means that there is nothing to be happy about.
The Act of Acting As If (Professor William James)
The actors do it instantly and you can too. Understand this: if you decide to put a meaningless smile on your cat and keep it that way for 30 seconds, you can’t, once again, you can’t, feel depressed, angry, or stressed. If you keep this Pan-Am smile (only teeth are showing, not squinted eyes) for 50 seconds, you will forget everything that was originally creating negative emotions and feel new positive feelings.
Your brain turns the fictitious (fake) smile into a real smile. Will you remember this? Now it is your new secret strategy to dispel the negative forces from your mind and body. Can you teach it to your children, significant others, and your professional colleagues? Wait – if you have ongoing pain in, say, your shoulder, getting rid of the emotional block can often remove the negative physical symptom.
You control your physical symptoms and feelings much more
Yes, our knowledge and experience is that your non-conscious mind (5/6 of your brain) believes that anything you put on your face that indicates joy and happiness is the real deal. The false is only known to your conscious mind (1/6) of your active brain.
If you act like you want to learn boring things, your mind accepts those new ideas and knowledge as valuable and necessary for your survival. Why? Because your conscious mind sets the goals and the non-conscious mind carries out the learning activity unquestionably.
The principle is a law, instinct or reflection
If the Act Like Principle can eliminate negative emotions and even negative physical symptoms by using your PFC and flood of dopamine, go the extra mile and do a thought experiment. Decide that you are going to be curious and want to be an expert on a new idea that is usually boring and seems stupid to you.
Imagine (act like) that you want to be an expert on any new topic, and your brain and dopamine will. They will double your memory and creativity in the long run. If you use the Act-As-If principle frequently, your IQ will increase up to 15%, and that’s a lot.
Students pass their exams, classes, and grades – In high school, college, and graduate school, many increase to a full grade. The executives we teach speedlearning101 get this strategy and brag about its effectiveness in the corporate world.
Thinking like this and acting like it does so, for 83.3% (non-conscious mind) of their brain at work. Your conscious mind (16.7%) programs and conditions the non-conscious to react to Act-As-If.
He activated his PreFrontal Cortex to make this happen, and his brain is flooded with Dopamine from the activated smile or the desire to learn new things. Yes, that happens with a real, legitimate smile or by becoming an expert in whatever you choose. Most people are unaware of their personal force-energy-power to create hope.
It is part of the rhythm of life that you control. If you know the secret strategy and use it, you will be inspired by the insights (insights) that occur in your mind.
Now use this principle to get curious about winning a $ 50,000 bonus or learning Spanish.
