Point #5: “Almost daily, new evidence emerges of just how much our brains can change over the course of our lives, in response to shifting thought patterns and behaviour. If we keep at it, if we channel our talent for hard work, we can make our brains more confidence-prone [and by the same token, with an interest in fairness and impartiality, make our brains more competent-prone (guys?)]. What the neuroscientists call plasticity, we call hope.”
Now doesn’t that sound promising? What it does suggest is that the only obstacle to overcoming such hurdles is our own thoughts on the matter. Change your thinking, change your brain-pattern behaviour, and things will start to happen. Think, think, think, everyday, just like Winnie-the-Pooh.
