Distinction: most education is taught in what is called informational learning, that’s likely what you experienced when you went to school. This coaching program is transformational learning/education, in other words not designed to teach you, but to transform you.
If you remember back in the coaching session “law of insignificance” http://www.alexgoen.com/4-strategies-for-significance/ you discovered how real significance starts with insignificance, you should be using the three exercises every day Incorporated in all you do.
At this point also, you should have selected at least one WINsuit preferably three, though you still are uncertain whether or not you are correct with your selection, you should have a least one picked out.
Other than those “participatory” exercises all you’ve been asked to do thus far is read these emails. However while you’re reading these emails you are doing something else, it’s the something else that is of supreme importance. What is it that you’re doing? You are thinking, this what, seemingly appears to be an insignificant act has profound significance in this transformational process.
Before we go any further, it’s important to take a little time to understand how the brain functions a little bit better. I like to make the reference that your subconscious mind is similar to the hard drive on your computer in its capacity to store information and to use electrical impulses or electrons to communicate the information. However, the human mind is much more capable and complex than any computer or hard drive that can be found today. In addition to using electrons, our brains have receptor sites for chemical signaling. This chemical signaling plays a role in the programming of your subconscious, but it’s the electronic signaling that plays the majority of the role. With weight control, the chemical signaling plays a role in both the physiological and psychological challenges/solutions.
Our brains are composed of microscopic cells that cannot be seen by the eye without a microscope. A grain of sand could have millions in the same space. The types of cells that are in the brain that make up the conscious and subconscious mind are called “neurons”. Your brain contains an estimated 100 billion neurons that communicate with one another through electronic and chemical signaling, and the communication from neuron to neuron being that it’s both chemical and electrical, is called “electrochemical”.
Every thought triggers a magnificent array of electric and chemical impulses from neuron to neuron, an intricate chain reaction communicating electrochemically from neuron to neuron. Your brain simply and magnificently is the most complex computer circuit board ever created and likely never duplicated. It is made up of living cells and is constantly changing, mutating, and growing unlike any computer that man has ever created and likely will ever be able to create.
The ability for the human brain to change, improve, figure out, reprioritize, take orders, and accept commands is truly amazing and to imagine that we are so incredibly fortunate to have this magnificent factory, the greatest on earth, between our two ears. Even more magnificent, each and every one of these microscopic neurons has ever changing wires extending from them called “dendrites”. Dendrites connect these neurons to one another and in turn rapidly are able to change the pattern of messaging from one neuron to the other, simply by the most powerful force on earth, a thought, truly magnificent, and awe-inspiring. Plain and simple, you command this complex electrochemical processing, programming factory to communicate differently, and the dendrites do exactly as instructed at all times. Most of the rewiring is done, in what’s called the Delta state.
As instructed by you, the individual neurons create additional dendrites, or lengthen the connections, or change the connections, or create additional means of communication called “synapses”, which are used for a higher, more important means of communication. In addition, it’s hypothesized that neurons as needed work together to restructure one another, and that the network of dendrite connections and the inner-weaving of such respond to your very commands.
When you think about it in terms of what’s going on in your brain, every time that you “think” the gravitas of what’s taking place, it is truly extraordinary. The chain reaction that you create and control as a result of the thought becomes an extraordinary gift that comes with extraordinary responsibility. Every day it’s estimated that we have approximately 65,000 thoughts, 95% of them being the same as from the previous days. New thoughts that are born as insignificant, providing proper repetition, can stimulate and cause structural change or “dendrite cabling” when needed to improve the efficiency, messaging, cabling, and communications of your brain. Repeated thoughts typically will use the same set of neurons to efficiently carry out the tasks. The neural circuitries of the brain, and its capacity of extraordinary structural changes that take place every day, every moment of the day and especially during the Delta state, is a tool that we have available to us at all times.
With repeated thought (WINstructions, WINcourses), dendrites (wires) will string themselves from neuron to neuron and become locked in place to carry out a task repeatedly and efficiently. That’s why with repeated WINstructions, the dendrite cabling reinforces your belief/security structure/traits/attributes into who you “be”, or into your very being, into who you are, into who you is. As you repeat your WINstructions and you incorporate them into your self-talk, the old dendrites atrophy (die) and new dendrites are formed and replace the dying ones.
As time goes on and you continue to engineer you, the structure of the brain can change and is shaped by the process of repeated thought. WINcycles of WINstructions, WINcourses, and the neural networks in your brain increase in efficiency, complexity, dendrite cabling, to serve you better, to improve your efficiency, and to ground you into the “being” that you engineer for yourself.
