Have you ever wondered why we reach a stable financial position… and then stagnate without any further growth?
We often think it’s our “financial ceiling” — that seemingly impenetrable level of wealth that we subconsciously believe is our limit.
But according to John Assaraf, bestselling author, and CEO of Neurogym, our financial constraints are simply the product of our environment, our past experiences, and our parents — and they can be changed in moments.
In this 7-minute interview between John and Vishen Lakhiani, you’ll discover the quick exercise to change your perception of what you believe is possible to achieve financially. He’ll also teach you about the Brain Plasticity Switch — new research showing the brain’s ability to create millions of new connections. Understanding this will help you change your mindset and relationship with your financial goals
How do your beliefs affect your wealth?
We’ve all heard that your beliefs and thoughts become reality — but they could be having an even greater effect than you think.
According to John, all of our subconscious beliefs and emotions surrounding money, and our own financial worth, boil down to our past experiences. Everything we have gone through in our life or been told has become part of our memory bank, which we then call upon when making future decisions.
The problem with this is, if we’re always basing decisions on our past experiences, it doesn’t leave room for growth.
So, what do you believe — and can imagine — is truly possible for yourself?
While this may seem like a weighty question, it is very simple to challenge and change past limiting beliefs — and it can be done in moments.
It all boils down to one simple thing: your brain plasticity switch.
What is your “brain plasticity switch?”
As children, we absorb new beliefs and ideas like sponges. If something challenges a past belief or experience, we don’t get attached to one point of view — our opinions and beliefs are malleable.
From birth until about the age of 12, our brains have a tremendous amount of plasticity, as they are making millions of new connections between neurons every minute. At this point, our brain plasticity switch — the ability to be open and receptive to new beliefs — is turned on.
However, once we become teenagers and young adults, we start to become creatures of habit. From this point on, we begin to simply rely on our memory banks to help us make sense of the world… and the brain plasticity switch is slowly turned off.
