Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness and Spiritual Well-Being by Deepak Chopra and Rudolph E. Tanzi is an important work which describes how to train the mind to adapt and thrive in an ever-changing world. The authors describe the classic ego blocks which prevent people from realizing their full potential.
Examples of the classic negations are low self worth, fear of the unknown, and the proverbial call to just let someone else handle problems that defy an easy solution. Above all, the authors advise readers to let go of toxic beliefs and replace them with new activities and endeavors.
Ultimately, the authors urge people to walk away from old stresses and to stop repeating things that never worked in the first place. The book teaches that aging can be reversed with new attitudes, improvisation and purposeful activity.
A person’s state of mind is another important aspect of surviving and thriving in a stressful world. In order to maximize overall health and well-being, people should never postpone happiness or good times in the hope of achieving things at an uncertain future date.
The authors discuss another elusive concept. That is, the intellect is a dynamic human asset which blends with emotions, gut feelings and instincts honed very finely through experience with life itself. Related requirements for maximizing the intellect are open communications, a balanced approach toward life, and the ability to see the big picture after sorting through a maze of seemingly unrelated details.
Super Brain is an excellent approach toward maximizing satisfaction with life by letting go of the past and trying new things in an attempt to arrive at higher levels of satisfaction in the present. This new approach aims at adjusting goals realistically to remove avoidable stresses which life presents to us all.
