Rewiring Your Mind
Posted on February 24, 2023 by Craig Taylor, One of Thousands of Executive Coaches on Noomii.
You can spend your whole life being weighed down by your past- the mistakes, the bad decisions, and the shame... but you don't need to!
It has been scientifically proven that you can actually rewire your brain and break out of old habits. It is called ‘self-directed neuroplasticity’, and in fact, deals with rewiring the patterns in your mind to lose old habits and form new, better ones. In his book, John B. Arden says that the four steps to rewiring your brain are “Focus, Effort, Effortlessness, Determination”. He also adds, “In the beginning, it takes focus, effort, and more energy in your brain, but after you make the swing… it becomes effortless.”
You can spend your whole life being weighed down by your past- the mistakes, the bad decisions, and the shame that leads to bad habits. This creates a lifestyle of stagnancy and it becomes impossibly hard to break out of it, let alone, create a better lifestyle for yourself. Well, we at Irie Oak know how hard it is and we are here to help you break free.
With our program, you will learn to let go of the past, no matter how good or bad it was, and move on to a new beginning. We follow science-based techniques that allow neuroplasticity to take its course and enable you to make better decisions for yourself. We can coach you on how to get to the root of the problem, focus on it, then make the effort to fix it, up until the time where it becomes a new-formed habit and second nature for you.
In this way, you can actually make an impact on the physiology of your brain and train it to stop and think before acting on a bad impulse and making a sub-ideal decision. Soon, you will see that you are consciously making decisions that are leading you to a better and healthier life.
