What are the keys to long-life learning?

There’s a difference between being a life-long learner and long-life learner. How you learn at thirty years old is different from how you learn at sixty years old. As you age, your brain changes, which then transforms how you look at certain topics, what you want to learn about, and why you want to learn about them.

Can meditation improve your intuition, performance, and relationships?

What is a genius network and how do you build one?

You’ve probably heard me say who you spend time with is who you become. That’s because your brain power doesn’t rely solely on your neurological networks, it’s influenced and shaped by your social network. Who you surround yourself with can have a direct impact on your capabilities and success.

How do you make the placebo effect work for you?

We talk a lot about the power of mindset. Before you can achieve any goal, you have to believe it’s possible and change your inner self-talk to support that belief. There’s powerful science that shows that the way you choose to see the world can physically affect your mind and your body, but you can even change your business, your brand, and beyond.

Can physical exercise boost your brain power and focus?

You’ve heard me say, as your body moves, the brain grooves. That’s because the primary reason you have a brain is to control the movement in your body. And as you move, your brain creates brain-derived neurotropic factors, which is like fertilizer for the brain.

Today, I want to welcome you to do this Kwik challenge with me. I believe that when you challenge yourself in one ar...

What role does your microbiome take in shaping your moods, memory, and even your dreams?

You already know that what you eat matters, especially for your brain matter. The mind-gut connection is so strong, I’ve often referred to it as your second brain. But this interconnectedness extends throughout your entire body and can directly impact your immune system.

How do you unlimit your fear?

Fear is hardwired into your brain, and it isn’t always a bad thing. It’s meant to keep you safe, but in our modern world, stress is often misidentified in the brain as fear. This can trigger your fight, flight, or freeze response, and that can hurt your productivity, hinder your performance, and take away your peace of mind.

In today’s episode, I want to talk about fear through the lens of the Limitles...

What is your ‘wouldn’t go back moment’, and how do you reach it?

Change is not optional. It happens whether you want it to or not. But the good news is your brain is meant to change, which means your life is meant to change. Without realizing it, you’ve likely had a moment after difficulty where you realized that what you experienced gave you a new skill, perspective, or mentality that you wouldn’t give up.

What is the key to lasting motivation?

Motivation is a topic that comes up a lot in our community. You want to eat right, read more, exercise daily, and meditate regularly. But talking about making a change is often easier than achieving long-term follow-through.

How do you memorize jokes?

Tell me if this sounds familiar. You hear a fantastic joke, but when the time comes to repeat it, your mind goes blank. This doesn’t seem to happen with song lyrics or movie quotes, so why do jokes feel like they disappear moments after you hear them?

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes.

As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
