“One of the unique things about the human brain is that it can do only what it thinks it can do. The minute you say, "My memory isn't what it used to be ..." you are actually training your brain to live up to your diminished expectations.

Low expectations mean low results.

The first rule of super brain is that your brain is always eavesdropping on your thoughts. As it listens, it leans. If you teach it about limitation, your brain will become limited.
But what if you do the opposite? What if you teach your brain to be unlimited?”
Deepak Chopra, Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being
“Nobody really enjoys having to pacify their feelings. It's too much like failure; it reminds you of weakness. but feelings don't want to be pacified, either. They want to be fulfilled. You fulfill your positive feelings (love, hope, optimism, appreciation, approval) by connecting with other people, expressing your best self. You fulfill your negative feelings by releasing them. Your whole system recognizes negative feelings as toxic. It's futile to bottle them up, divert them, ignore them, or try to rise above them. Either negativity is leaving or it's hanging on - it has no other alternative.

As you fulfill emotions, your brain will change and form new patterns, which is the whole goal.”
Deepak Chopra, Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being
“Exercise has a direct brain connection, when you consider what it actually does. What we tend to overlook are the feedback loops that connect the brain to every cell in the body. Therefore when you throw a ball, run on a treadmill, or jog along the shore, billions of cells are "seeing" the outside world. The chemicals transmitted form the brain are acting the way sense organs do, making contact with the outside world and offering stimulation from that world.

This is why the jump from being sedentary to doing a minimal amount of exercise - such as walking, light gardening, and climbing the stairs instead of taking the elevator - is so healthy. Your cells want to be part of the world.”
Deepak Chopra, Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being
“Knowledge is not rooted in facts; it is rooted in curiosity. One inspired teacher can alter a student for life by instilling curiosity.”
Deepak Chopra, Super Brain: Unleashing the explosive power of your mind to maximize health, happiness and spiritual well-being
“Moving from Hope to Faith to Knowledge

Step 1: Realize that your life is meant to progress.

Step 2: Reflect on how good it is to truly know something rather than just hoping and believing. Don't settle for less.

Step 3: write down your dilemma. Make three separate lists, for the things you hope are true, the things you believe are true, and the things you know are true.

Step 4: Ask yourself why you know the things you know.

Step 5: Apply what you know to those areas where you have doubts, where only hope and belief exist today.

The brain likes to work coherently and methodically, even when it comes to spirituality. The first two steps are psychological preparation; the last three ask you to clear your mind and open the way for knowledge to enter.”
Deepak Chopra, Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being
“If you want to know what your thoughts were like in the past, look at your body today. If you want to know what your body will be like in the future, look at your thoughts today.”
Rudolph E. Tanzi, Super Brain
“Everything hinges on how you relate to your brain. By setting higher expectations, you enter a phase of higher functioning. One of the unique things about the human brain is that it can do only what it thinks it can do.”
Deepak Chopra, Super Brain: Unleashing the explosive power of your mind to maximize health, happiness and spiritual well-being
“First the child attempts to keep up with other children. When these efforts fail, for whatever reason, discouragement sets in. The child stops trying as hard as the children who meet with success and encouragement. The next phase is acting out, making disruptive noises or pranks to attract attention. Every child needs attention, even if it is negative. The disruptions can be aggressive, but eventually the child realizes that nothing good is happening. Acting out leads to disapproval and punishment. So he enters the final phase, which is sullen silence. He makes no more effort to keep up in class. Other children mark him as slow or stupid, an outsider. School has turned into a stifling prison rather than an enriching place. It’s not hard to see how this cycle of behavior affects the brain.”
Deepak Chopra, Super Brain: Unleashing the explosive power of your mind to maximize health, happiness and spiritual well-being
“You won’t know what your brain can do until you test its limits and push beyond them. No matter how inefficiently you are using your brain, one thing is certain: it is the gateway to your future. Your success in life depends on your brain, for the simple reason that all experience comes to us through our brains.”
Deepak Chopra, Super Brain: Unleashing the explosive power of your mind to maximize health, happiness and spiritual well-being
“In our everyday lives, if we intentionally set out to learn new things or do familiar things in new ways (such as commuting to work via a new route or taking the bus instead of a car), we effectively rewire our brains and improve them. A physical workout builds muscle; a mental workout creates new synapses to strengthen the neural network.”
Deepak Chopra, Super Brain: Unleashing the explosive power of your mind to maximize health, happiness and spiritual well-being
“un nuevo estudio ha demostrado que el estrés rutinario bloquea el córtex prefrontal, la parte del cerebro responsable de la toma de decisiones, de la corrección de errores y de la evaluación de situaciones. Esa es la razón de que la gente se vuelva loca en los atascos de tráfico. Se trata de un estrés rutinario, pero la rabia, la frustración y la impotencia que sienten algunos conductores indica que su corteza prefrontal ha dejado de regular los impulsos primarios que debe controlar. Volvemos a lo mismo una y otra vez: usa tu cerebro, no dejes que tu cerebro te use a ti. La rabia en la carretera es un ejemplo de lo que ocurre cuando tu cerebro te utiliza, pero también lo son los recuerdos nocivos, las heridas de viejos traumas, los malos hábitos que no puedes dejar y, lo más trágico de todo, las adicciones descontroladas. Este es un tema muy importante al que debemos prestar atención.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“Einstein’s brain. Defying expectations that big thoughts required a big brain, Einstein’s brain actually weighed 10 percent less than the average brain.”
Rudolph E. Tanzi, Super Brain
“We now know that babies are born with 90 percent of their brains formed and millions of connections that are surplus.”
Rudolph E. Tanzi, Super Brain
“Ahora sabemos que el cerebro puede formar nuevos axones y dendritas hasta el final de la vida, lo que aumenta enormemente las esperanzas de poder prevenir la senilidad, por ejemplo, y de preservar nuestra capacidad mental de manera indefinida. (La capacidad del cerebro para crear nuevas conexiones es tan extraordinaria que un feto a punto de nacer forma unas 250.000 células cerebrales nuevas por minuto y, por tanto, millones de nuevas conexiones sinápticas en ese mismo período de tiempo).”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“uno no puede recordar lo que nunca ha aprendido.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“The injured brain cannot heal itself. Now we know that the brain has amazing powers of healing, unsuspected in the past. The brain’s hardwiring cannot be changed. In fact, the line between hard and soft wiring is shifting all the time, and our ability to rewire our brains remains intact from birth to the end of life. Aging in the brain is inevitable and irreversible. To counter this outmoded belief, new techniques for keeping the brain youthful and retaining mental acuity are arising every day. The brain loses millions of cells a day, and lost brain cells cannot be replaced. In fact, the brain contains stem cells that are capable of maturing into new brain cells throughout life. How we lose or gain brain cells is a complex issue. Most of the findings are good news for everyone who is afraid of losing mental capacity as they age.”

“cuando la mente desea trascender, el cerebro está dispuesto a seguirla.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“Speaking generally, however, when you interact with someone else, you are doing outer work (physical time, play time, connecting time) ... as many sociologists have pointed out, this area of life used to dominate everyday existence, at a time when families sat around the fire of an evening and ate every meal together.

That's no longer true. Families today are often loose constellations. Contact is intermittent and rushed. everyone has their own space. Activity is scattered all around town, not confined to the home. Cars have made everyone mobile, but central heating may be the most powerful force in shaping modern society.”
Deepak Chopra, Super Brain: Unleashing the Explosive Power of Your Mind to Maximize Health, Happiness, and Spiritual Well-Being
“From birth, nature has designed us to approach the world as a whole, and when we slice experience up into bits and pieces, wholeness breaks down. Then, instead of living in reality, you are being fooled by a reality illusion.”
Rudolph E. Tanzi, Super Brain
“Las criaturas supuestamente inferiores son libres de ese miedo psicológico. Cuando un guepardo ataca a una gacela, esta entra en pánico y lucha por su vida. Sin embargo, cuando no hay ningún depredador presente, la gacela, hasta donde sabemos, lleva una vida de lo más despreocupada. No obstante, nosotros, los humanos, sufrimos horrores en nuestro mundo interior, y ese sufrimiento se transforma en problemas físicos. Cuando permites que tu cerebro te utilice, los riesgos son muy elevados. En cambio, cuando empiezas a utilizarlo tú a él, las recompensas son infinitas.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“el cerebro humano puede hacer mucho más de lo que nadie se imaginaba. En contra de lo que afirman algunas creencias anticuadas, sus limitaciones las imponemos nosotros, no las deficiencias físicas.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“todo aquello a lo que prestas atención, crece.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“Una de las características únicas del cerebro humano es que solo puede hacer aquello que cree que es capaz de hacer.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“Las expectativas son poderosos activadores del cerebro.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“El fin de la cualidad multidimensional del cerebro es permitir que cualquier experiencia ocurra.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“Mantén la esperanza de conservar tu memoria intacta. Resístete a expectativas más bajas, como las de la gente que piensa que la pérdida de memoria es algo «normal».”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“Las consecuencias de tu vida dependen de cómo te enfrentas a sus momentos más oscuros.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“Las primeras impresiones, que se toman en un abrir y cerrar de ojos, son las más poderosas. De los recientes estudios se deduce que las primeras impresiones y juicios rápidos son a menudo los más acertados.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“Cuando se le pregunta a la gente con mucho éxito cómo ha llegado a la cima, casi siempre está de acuerdo en dos cosas: ha tenido mucha suerte y estaba en el lugar adecuado en el momento oportuno. Pocos pueden explicar qué les llevó al lugar adecuado en el momento oportuno. Pero si consideramos la intuición como una habilidad real, es probable que a la gente con mucho éxito se le dé mejor «sentir» qué camino debe seguir.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
“El camino empieza con la esperanza, se hace más fuerte con la fe y se afirma con el conocimiento.”
Deepak Chopra, Supercerebro
