There is a process where you can change what you are feeling that doesn't involve trying to control your thinking.
You can't change what you feel by changing your thinking, you change your thinking by feeling something different.
Thinking is just an artifact of what you are feeling.
Nobody really cares about changing their thinking, they just want to feel better.
You are what you feel, not what you think!
People who are prejudiced aren’t comfortable with ambiguity and feel a much stronger need to make quick and firm judgments and decisions.
As rumination goes up, cognitive control goes down. I think that this is key to understanding and dealing with depression.
Cognitive control is the ability to engage and disengage in thought processes or behaviors.
Rumination is thinking about a problem over and over without actively trying to come up with a solution.
It's not whether you win or lose, but how you tell the story.
confidence is not a feeling, it's a behavior.
It's not the load that breaks you down, it's the way you carry it. Lena Horne
Our brains see patterns in random data and events, which is not an actual pattern, but an attempt at predicting randomness.
We believe what we need to believe, not what we choose to believe.
Pain is inevitable. What if suffering was optional...
Our brain thinks it sees patterns after a sample size of one...
Why are people so prone to superstition? It's neurological... Neurons that fire together, wire together.
psychological control includes such tactics as using guilt, withdrawing love, and fostering anxiety.
Also, the greedier you are, the more stressed you become.
The more stressed you are, the more greedy you become.
love this quote: “There are only two ways to live life: as though nothing is a miracle or as though everything is a miracle.”-Einstein
You live in a world of your own predictions, and your brain tricks you into thinking that it's reality.
disappointment = lowering expectations = pessimism = depression
It's thanksgiving here in Canada, so Happy Thanksgiving to all of you!
The 'curse of knowledge' cognitive bias says that you can't imagine someone without your knowledge.
The brain doesn't like gaps. It sees 2 things, and then fills in the gap automatically, and does it so well that you don't even notice.
You don't know what you don't know.
You don't see things the way they are... you see things the way you are.
When another's pain is our pleasure, we tend to justify it with words like anger and frustration.
When you see someone that you think has been unfair to you, seeing them in pain lights up the parts of your brain responsible for pleasure.
Don't fool yourself into believing you make logical decisions. You make decisions on emotion, and then you justify using logic.
I suggest that #JulianAssange has a part of him that is scared. But he has another part that is frustrated and that overcomes his fear.
#JulianAssange says, 'don't let your emotions push you around'. Emotion is our only motivation. Without emotion, would we ever do anything?
Stop thinking about willpower and start thinking about alignment. Life gets much easier when your whole mind and heart are working together.
The brain only notices things with contrast. That means that we really can't notice when we are experiencing chronic stress.
If you have found success, but are afraid to fail, your success becomes very fragile and temporary.
If you are not failing, you are not learning.
Because the brain enforces inconsistency, we will always have failure, and we will always be learning.
The brain automatically introduces variance into everything we do. By noticing the contrast, the brain learns.
Doing anything the same way twice is a myth. Repetition causes the brain to lose nuances of each individual experience, but they are unique.
Anxiety = Helplessness = missing skills and/or information. Solution? Think about what makes you anxious, and learn one new thing about it.
The more we learn, the more we can see the outlines of what we haven't learned yet.
First, we don't know that we don't know. Then we learn enough to know that we don't know.
Bad decisions come from bad information. If you want to make better decisions, learn better information.
Stress is a perceived experience. If you want to change your stress, change your story.
Stress can cause epigenetic change in you that can affect your children before they are even born.
Natural genetic evolution takes thousands of years. Epigenetic change can be inherited in a single generation.
Our story doesn't come from our perspective... our perspective comes from our story. We learn our first stories from our parents.
