It is gratifying when science validates your fundamental philosophy. I recently read The Habits of a Happy Brain by Loretta Breuning, PHD. The author documents how neural scientist have made tremendous discoveries about the human brain in the last ten years. With the advancement of MRI brain scans and the ability to monitor the various chemicals and hormones produced by the brain, doctors can see in real time how each thought is creating our moods, desires, and overall emotional state of mind.

This recent scientific research supports one of SuccessMode’s major themes:

“The quality of your thoughts determines the quality of your life.”

The author does an excellent job of explaining in layman terms how our bodies are like a walking pharmacy which produces various chemicals like: Dopamine, Oxtocin, Cortisol, Serotonin, and Endorphins.

Dr. Breuning goes on to describes how these various chemicals evolved over millions of years to helps humans survive the primitive environment of planet Earth. . The good news is we have a lot of control over our thoughts and actions , and hence can influence the chemistry of our brains. In general, this book encourages us to take control and pursue thoughts and action that produce the happier, more beneficial chemicals in our brains. It pays to be e the boss of your brain.

“Be successful and make
the world a better place to be.”
