Your experiences change your brain.
Lazar, et al. 2005.
You can use your mind
To change your brain
To change your mind for the better
To benefit yourself and others.
Inner Strengths Are Built From Brain Structure
Inner Strengths Include
Inner strengths are grown from
experiences of them that are
turned into neural structure.
Good traits come from good states.
Growing Inner Strengths
Have It, Enjoy It
But There’s a Problem
Your brain is good at learning from the bad.
But bad at learning from the good.
Even though learning from the good
is the primary way to get the good stuff
Into your brain and your life.
Velcro for Bad, Teflon for Good
The Negativity Bias
We can deliberately use the mind
to change the brain for the better.
Take in the Good
Have a Good Experience
Link Positive and Negative Material
Have a positive experience.
Link positive and negative material. (optional)
Take in gratitude:
Have the experience – Think about some of the
good facts in your life . . . Food in the fridge,
people you love, flowers blooming, chocolate . . .
Open to a growing feeling of gratitude . . .
Enrich it – Help it last . . . Feel it in your body . . .
Absorb it – Sense it sinking into you . . . Let it land
inside you . . . Receive it like a sponge . . .
Be mindful of the difference between:
an idea and an experience, and
having an experience and internalizing it.
lots of little good things
add up to big good things inside you.
The Law of Little Things
Think not lightly of good, saying,
"It will not come to me.”
Drop by drop is the water pot filled.
Likewise, the wise one,
gathering it little by little,
fills oneself with good.
