Feed Your Brain For Success
by On August 15, 2016

We’ve been taught for years that your mind and your brain are much like a muscle. The better you exercise and feed it, the stronger it gets and the longer it stays healthy. There’s an enormous body of research that now explains why and how this works. Here we’ll discuss 5 foods that have a positive impact on your brain health.

FISH

Salmon, mackerel, tuna, and other fish are rich in brain-healthy omega 3 fatty acids, including docosahexaenoic acid (DHA). Omega- 3 fatty acids are important to your brain because they essentially insulate the electrical circuitry in your brain.

NUTS & SEEDS

90% of Americans are not consuming the recommended amount of vitamin E, a vitamin that corresponds with less cognitive decline as we get older. Being so, doctors suggest implementing a higher amount of nuts and seeds into your diet, which contain high levels of the vitamin. Sunflower seeds, brazil nuts, hazelnuts, walnuts, almonds and nut butters such as peanut butter and almond butter are all awesome sources of vitamin E and should be added to your diet on a daily basis.

AVOCADOS

Avocados get a lot of flack simply because they’re high in calories and fat. However, they’re high in monounsaturated fat, which contributes to healthy blood flow. Healthy blood flow equates to a healthy brain! Adding just 1⁄4 to 1⁄2 an avocado to one of your meals as a side dish should be enough for your brain to absorb the effects.

BLUEBERRIES

This fruit is so important for your brain, that many doctors have started calling them “Brainberries”. Researchers have done studies that show blueberries help protect the brain from oxidative stress and may reduce the effects of age-related conditions such as Alzheimer’s or dementia. Similar studies have shown that aging rats that have been fed blueberries have significantly improved both their learning capacity and motor skills, making them mentally equivalent to much younger rats.

BEANS

“Beans, beans, good for your heart. The more you eat the..better your brain also feels?” Beans are great. They stabilize glucose levels. The brain is dependent on glucose for fuel. However, the brain is incapable of storing the glucose so it relies on the constant stream of energy that the beans provide. Most beans will get the job done, but doctors have especially suggested lentils and black beans.

There you have it. 5 foods that you can start adding to your diet today to start feeling the impact on your mental health. You can learn more about these, and so much more, in my book “Train Your Brain For Success”, available on Amazon and Barnes and Noble!

Average Sucks. Learn to be Great.
by On August 8, 2016

If I had to guess, I would say that you’re a dreamer. That you spend your days with your mind in the clouds imagining what it would be like if you had the kind of money needed to own yachts, private planes, and homes in multiple cities or even continents. You don’t want to be like most people, because you know you’re bigger and better than that. They’re average, and you’re above that. Most people are broke, unhealthy, and with too little time to actually enjoy their lives. They’re certainly not cruising around Croatia with a yacht full of expensive spirits and caviar. However, you have to be aware that your brain and your mind have a lot of unconscious patterns that hold you back. What kind of patterns? Well…

A BIG PART OF YOU WANTS TO BE AVERAGE

I know, say it ain’t so, right? Starting in elementary school, through a combination of education and our brain’s natural urge toward safety, we all developed a strong unconscious desire to be like everyone else around us. We want to fit in. We want to be average. We want to skate through life under the radar, performing just enough to get by but not enough to land ourselves on our own yachts. Average is safe, but how safe is average really?

WHAT DOES AVERAGE LOOK LIKE IN AMERICA?

Here’s a portrait of the average American:
Physically – 68 percent of Americans 20 and over are overweight. 34 percent are clinically obese. This average gets worse every year, year after year.
Relationships – Over half of marriages in the United States end in a divorce, a statistic that’s held for more than a quarter century.
Professionally – Somewhere between 75 and 85 percent of Americans actively dislike their jobs.
Financially – The average income in America hovers around $40,000, less than in the 1940s when adjusted for inflation. The average American saves less than $2,000 per year. Do the math: It means they can retire around age 96. Look around, and you’ll see that at least half of American households regularly struggle with “too much month at the end of money”.

SETTLING FOR AVERAGE IS SELLING YOURSELF SHORT

Looking at those statistics now, do you still think you want to be just average? Or are you going to seize the moment, promise yourself that you will never turn into the person listed above, and start training your brain for success TODAY? In our book, Train Your Brain For Success, you are going to learn some fundamental principles…principles that have been proven over literally thousands of years to help individuals and organizations see consistent upward growth in every area. Professionally, Financially, Physically, Emotionally, Spiritually, and in all types of relationships. The greatest thing about success? IT’S SIMPLE. Not easy, but simple. Learn these fundamentals and apply them diligently, and you definitely will achieve the things you want.
