How to benefit from one of the most important discoveries in neuroscience in the last decade
How to benefit from utilizing Mirror Neurons.
The discovery that watching the actions of others activates similar neural circuitry, as if we were doing the action, has been called one of the greatest discoveries in neuroscience in the last decade.
How can you use this knowledge to upgrade your nervous system with new behaviors and perceptions? Surround yourself with people who are better than you in what you are trying to accomplish. Play with better guitarists, run with better runners, be around better investors, be in the company of serial entrepreneurs, hang out with philanthropists.
Is there someone who embodies multiple aspects of their professional and personal lives that you admire? Ask them to be your mentor.
We all have the basic hardware, and we build our own software by what we habitually do until it becomes effortless. If there is something you are struggling with doing on your own, or you have reached a plateau, being around someone who is better or more efficient will prime the circuitry in your system, putting you “in entrainment” for those behaviors and perceptions, thus making it easier for you to get there on your own, with practice.
