What You Think About, You Bring About: The Powerful Impact of Thoughts and Beliefs on our Lives – a Neuroscientific View


If we create optimal conditions for our brain, it will promote our learning and personal growth. But how do we create these optimal conditions? In this lecture we will explore how the structure of the brain and the path of neuroplastic developments can be used to convince the three "gatekeepers to consciousness" (Judy Willis). The talk will provide neuroscientific guidance on how to make your life flourish - so that the powerful influence of thought can be used to strengthen our personal growth.

Learning Objectives 

  • Explore the structures of the brain that enable personal growth.
  • Learn about the obstacles to growth.
  • Find out what we can really do to convince the gatekeepers of learning and growth to become our powerful supporters.
  • Be inspired by what we know about brain-friendly learning and living.

Ideal audience: coaches, trainers, teachers, HR managers, applied psychologists and anyone who wants to flourish.
