One of the most exciting scientific advances affecting the practice of Psychology in recent decades is the large body of research clarifying how NEUROPLASTIC our brain is and how we can change our brain through concentrated FOCUSED ACTION.

So what is Neuroplasticity and how does this come about through Focused Action?

Neuroplasticity is an umbrella term referring to changes in neural pathways and synapses resulting from changes in your behaviors, in the environment you live in, and complex neural processes ongoing in your highly active, dynamic brain.

Neuroplasticity occurs at multiple levels in your brain and is ongoing from childhood through the golden years.

The point is this:  As previously thought, your brain is not immutable.  It can be changed systematically through now available brain training technologies.  At the bottom of this Post, you will find references to books regarding the neuroplasticity of your brain.  In these books you will find links to web sites offering creative, practical, training opportunities as you seek improvements in your own brain functioning.  One is these is

An important component of the neuroplasticity of your brain is MENTAL FOCUS.  When you seek personal change, it is always better to have a clear idea what you want to change.  This is where the Personal Change Indicator (PCI) comes into play.

To assist you in optimizing the value of the Personal Change Indicator (PCI),  I have three previous Posts relevant to the pivotal outcome of your becoming YOUR OWN PSYCHOLOGIST.  These posts are:

You might want to check these posts out before you complete the PCI.  Then, upon completion of the PCI, you will have clarification of your Primary, Secondary and Highly Focused Personal Concerns.  The good news is they are immediately available to you in your online THIS IS ME! report.

When you have a clear idea of what the concern is, the solution to the concern becomes readily apparent.  Changing your behaviors and your brain using the PCI, soon becomes a matter of FOCUSED ACTION, which means practicing what it takes to resolve your clearly defined Personal Concerns.

As you practice new behaviors, behaviors leading to the resolution of your personal concerns, new neural pathways will develop and will be observed in new, positive HABITS.

NOTE: To complete the PCI you will need an access code, just email me using the link below and I will send you your FREE ACCESS CODE.  This will be joined with your privately assigned password, fully protecting your privacy.  No one but you will see your THIS IS ME! Report. 

Remember, you ARE what you think.  You BECOME what you do.
