Ohhh the wisdom of Dr. Suess!!! This is definitely Game Changer Philosophy Material! This quote is so me – Smiley Wyllie (which I’ve been called by dear friends) always laughing, learning & loving!!! What can I say, the brain is a learning machine and learns rapidly and easily when you work with it, not against it. Set your brain on fire and suddenly learning & taking on the boldest challenges life has to offer becomes a whole lot of fun! Yes, you can laugh and smile your way to success – which is way easier when you wake up those brain cells! In fact, smiling and being silly to achieve seriously stunning results is The Game Changer way. The truth is that the more complex and expansive your brainpower & consciousness becomes, the more you see the stunning simplicity and magic of life. Mastering your Mind, and taking your life to the next level is simple, especially when you see the simplicity while everyone else is caught up in complexity!
Why so serious??? If you’re like most you probably take life a little too seriously :). Being too serious is the number 1 dis-ease people suffer from, in addition to its brother hesitation, both of which are a product of the brain being constricted, narrowed, stressed, energy-deprived and cut off from its highest capacities.
You see if you take everything so seriously, everything will become serious. Or in better words, if you take your shit too serious, you’ll end up standing in some serious shit! How shitty!
When you “think too hard”, “try to hard”, get too “serious”, it narrows your mind and focus, preventing you from seeing options, thinking clearly and thinking creatively. Let me tell you, I know all about this – I gave myself anxiety & panic attacks to the point where I was hospitalized for goodness sake!
“You see when others are getting more and more serious and tense, it frees you to soak up the silliness and fly in the freedom. When everyone is dwelling in problems and negativity, the positivity & opportunity is right there for the taking. When everyone is looking in the same direction and seeing the same thing, it frees you to look in the opposite direction to see something new, something better and completely change the game.”
Everything in life is relative. There is good and bad in every experience. You get to choose whether you soak up the good or the bad, or what side of the telescope you look through. In fact, there is no such thing as “failure” everything is just FEEDBACK, information that you can use to move to make better decisions and grow. Thats what life is about.
But its only when you’re relaxed, when you’re really silly, that the creative juices really flow, and the endorphins and neurotransmitters flood your brain, unlocking and unleashing profound neuro-flexibilty, creativity and imagination.
Brains are made for challenging. Your brain needs BIG, BOLD, BRILLIANT, BRIGHT Fantasy’s and Dreams to capture your imagination and ignite your passions and desires. Emotions are the fabric of memories. Your Limbic Brain, the seat of your emotions, memories, and experiences is the driver of all the unconscious thinking processes that are constantly shaping your behaviour. By setting your limbic brain on fire, and bringing your conscious mind (neocortex) in alignment with unconscious mind (limbic brain), suddenly your thoughts become of a higher quality – pure, powerful and in alignment with your hearts true desires. This is when mega manifestation occurs!
Big, Bold, Juicy Dreams are precisely what set your Limbic Brain on Fire. Juicy fantasy’s ignite your highest creative capacities, flood your brain with the potent neuro-chemicals like Dopamine and Serotonin and unleash a tsunami of motivation, focus and creativity. Not only that, when your energy is high and your brainpower topped-up, you feel the competence and confidence to JUST GO FOR IT. How courageous you act is influenced by the cocktail of Brain Juices in your head. Juicy fantasy’s activate the full magic of your mind.
In fact it is the job of creators, artists, innovators and genius’ to bring fantasy to reality. Some of the most profound advances in science have been the product of “hallucinations” and fantasy’s. For example, Albert Einstein’s laboratory was his brain. He conducted thought experiments, “hallucinations” and discovered the theory of relativity by riding a beam of light in his mind. Your Brain is the treasure chest you have barely begun to explore.
Truth is reality is always changing. In fact, it is the job of a physicist to change reality. At it’s root, what is a choice? A choice creates an alternate reality. There are many dimensions to the universe, and many different energies that you can tap into and manifest. Your mind, transcends, space and time – it’s infinite – you can start using it to see new perspectives, new opportunities and make better choices to create the reality you desire.
Your consciousness, your mind, is the ultimate organizing force in the universe. The foundation of progress is the mind’s ability to imagine, see, create and organize. Consciousness is what organizes chaos. If you’re overwhelmed with stress, or if you’re body is breaking down with a disease, Autoimmunity, Cancer, or a Neurological Condition, or Mental Illness like Anxiety, Depression – the chaos is overwhelming your brain. How can you reduce the chaos and restore order? It all starts by thinking differently.
So are you going to captain the ship and direct your brain or will you continue to let your brain be directed and controlled in whatever direction the winds are blowing? Most let their brains just flip flop like a fish to whatever the situation is triggering. Of course, if you want to re-direct your life in a new direction, you need to get in the game, and start focusing your brain actively. And when you change how you think, it changes how you feel, and so changes what you can see and do.
Remember when everyone is looking in one direction it frees you to look in the other to see something different, see a new light, a new path, a new life.
Whether it’s the depressive who looks at one side of the telescope and only associates with the negative memories from the past, or the person with Anxiety & Panic attacks who takes everything too seriously & scares the crap out of themselves … its only by changing FOCUS, and re-directing your consciousness, that you can begin to move to better behaviours.
Truth is your brain works perfectly. If you’re a worry wart, your brain has mastered worrying. If you have anxiety and panic you’re brain has mastered that. Perhaps it’s time to flip the switch and start trying some non-sensical things – like mastering feeling really good and being really happy? Perhaps its time to be a little silly, to turn on the happy buttons and start using those happy feelings to change your perspective and nourish your neurons.
“But ohhh don’t be so ridiculous, Chris!”
Just look at children. Children are little balls of curiosity, laughter and play – they’re also super-learning machines. Even if you’ve closed yourself off, your inner super-learner is still there, waiting to be opened back up. Your brain never stops learning. Its just that you may have let your brain be learning more and more garbage, which is just hardwiring more and more of those unwanted thoughts, behaviours and crappy feelings.
The brain loves whats familiar, but learns through difference. In fact, it’s through difference, constant eye movements, that you can see. Likewise, you learn and acquire skill by detecting differences and making distinctions. You learn by trying things at the opposite ends of the spectrum to explore what works best. Difference is what makes the difference.
Happiness is a habit. Energy is neither created nor destroyed. All the energies and memories from your past remain with you, and what you’re thinking and how you feel is a product of the dominant neurological and energetic pattern being activated and functioning right now. Stuck in the past, or don’t feel the way you want? Change your brain’s dominant patterns of functioning so that situations trigger new patterns, new responses, not old ones. Train your brain. Build new neural patterns. Take control!
“And so I hope for your health and happiness, that you can begin to see the brilliant in the non-sense, the genius in the giggling, the smarts in the smiling, and begin to look in the opposite direction as everyone else. When you do you’ll see new things, acquire new perspectives and make new insights that completely change the game. Yes, you can laugh and smile your way to seriously stunning success. “Just watch me”. That’s what I would say ;)”
