Brain's Failure To Regulate Itself Source Of Human Struggle
"Anxiety, sadness, anger - all of the common struggles and challenges in human life stem from failures of the brain to regulate itself" - Bill Harris
It's the pre-frontal cortex versus the limbic system.
In this age-old battle between immediate gratification and delayed happiness, these two parts of our brain face off every time we see a tempting dessert, seductive woman (or man), or begin to procrastinate...
This week's Optimal Performance Podcast features a man who has spoken at the United Nations and shared the stage with the Dali Lama.
Holosync creator Bill Harris is on the OPP to share his expertise on meditation, brain function, awareness, and self-improvement.
Awareness Creates Choice
As you'll hear from Bill several times in this podcast, "awareness creates choice" and he's about to tell you how you can create tremendous awareness due to changes created in the brain - similar to traditional meditation - only 8X faster!
Bill's teachings and technology help us enhance the prefontal cortex, calm the limbic system and increase connections throughout the brain for greater awareness and increased performance.
How Mastering Your Mind Leads To Increased Awareness, Choice and Happiness
Once we are able to increase our own awareness, Bill has four areas of focus to help us use this increased awareness to master of our mind and better our lives.
- How you feel
- How you behave
- The situations you attract or become attracted to
- The meanings we assign to those events
In this phenomenal episode of the Optimal Performance Podcast, Bill Harris explains how we can become more aware of our thoughts and behaviors so that we can more consciously choose to experience the best possible life.
We can do this by observing our internal dialogue and processes - then learn to control them and help create your desired reality and future rather than live by chance.
