With every repetition of a thought or emotion, we reinforce a neural pathway – and with each new thought, we begin to create a new way of being. These small changes, frequently enough repeated, lead to changes in how our brains work. This is referred to now as neuroplasticity.
However, the content of our minds is rarely upgraded, improved or even challenged. We carry paradigms that sometimes have not even been challenged since our formative years. Therefore, if we do not reinforce our neural pathways with good quality emotions and thoughts are our minds will become unclear and dull.
Our inability to deal with uncertainty, our challenges around flexibility to change is proof that we way behind where we should be.
