‘An expert has revealed how you can combine science and positive thinking to achieve your goals.
Neuroscientist, life coach and psychiatrist Dr Tara Swart, who teaches at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and King’s College in London, explains in her new book, The Source, how six principles could be used in our everyday life to ‘make things happen.’
These are based these on ‘neuroplasticity’ – the brain’s ability to change itself during adulthood.
According to Dr Swart, it is possible to ‘rewire our brain,’ or to change our attitude in order to succeed. She explains we can train ourselves to become the person we need to be in order to provoke positive change in our lives.
She follows the concept behind the Law of Attraction – the belief that positive thinking will lead to good things while negative thinking will attract negative outcomes – and argues that changing the way we think can have a physical impact on our lives.
These six principles allow us to unlock what Dr Swart calls ‘The Source,’ or the full potential of the brain, which she describes as the harmony between the cortex – which is responsible for higher thought processes such as speech and decision-making – and the limbic system – which deals with emotions, memories and stimulation.’
