MBL Minute: Knowing And Learning And Brain And Mind


Episode Notes


Knowing and Learning


It would be a mistake to believe that if you know something you have learned that thing.  These are two separate and distinct processes.  The act of knowing requires intellectual labor whereas the act of learning takes emotional labor.  Learning comes from the actions we take based upon what we know. 


Brain and Mind


We have the power inside our self, in every minute of every day, to use our mind to change our brain to change our mind for the better.  Neurons that fire together wire together.  We can build unshakeable inner strength by putting emotional intelligence into our backpack of skills and abilities.


We can hard wire the capabilities of emotional intelligence into our brain by practicing the emotional labor of taking actions that are non-resistive, non-judgmental and non-attached to outcome.  This is more challenging that it may seem because brain neuroscience researchers have discovered our brain has a negativity bias.
