Increase, Boost and Improve Your Natural Mindset

Increase, Boost and Improve Your Natural Mindset

A wise man once said, “Life is a battle of Cosmic vs. Psychological reality.”

This statement has profound connotations in regards to all of mankind’s universal beliefs, thoughts, and existence.

The psychological aspect of a person’s learned behavior from birth could be described as a nearly impregnable wall of beliefs. An individual who was taught and self-taught in a material world. A world where the five senses of observation can become a religious following of accumulation.

This psychological learned behavior can be the most beautiful or the most horrific prison of the mind.


    On the other hand the Cosmic person, Celestial Mechanic, Physical Cosmologist or Astrophysicist has an automatic self-awareness which goes beyond the immediate five senses.

    The earth as we know it is smaller than a spec of dust on the hide of an elephant’s backside.

      Every individual on earth could likely be described as the quantum particle of the universe. This immensity and visualization in mind are what we require to gauge a clear understanding of Cosmic vs. Psychological existence.

      Thinking Outside the Box

      The mind will tell us what everything is according to what we see, hear, feel, touch, smell, and experience in the physical world.

      The cosmos will tell us we are but the equivalent of a passing thought on a universal level.

      The path to a widened mind is found by looking outside of our learned psychology and realizing the cosmic existence of scale, and its impact on our mindset and behavior.

      Thinking outside of the box of our immediate existence allows a natural neuroplasticity within the physical brain. New neural connections and networks are created which allow greater growth, clarity, and understanding on a much higher level.

        Physics theory and celestial calculations are involved in such visuals as shown above. Let us say the inside box represents the knowledge within while the outside box is the unknown. Like a fish that swims in the known universe of water. The fish lives and breathes water. It is the known. It is the tank of life for the fish. The unknown for the fish as we know “would be incomprehensible.” As an observer, If a fish had the intellect to look beyond their known universe how would that play out for the other fish in the sea? We can assume the ideas, concepts, and methods proposed by that fish would likely be accepted only by those who carry openness, interest, curiosity and tolerance in their hearts.

        Learning and Increasing Awareness

        Any person with a relatively expansive intellect collects, retains and disperses information in a manner which is obviously different from the mainstream individual. Notice the pic below which shows the “access to meaning” area of the brain. This area also happens to be related to studies which involved meditation practitioners.

        Tolerance, consistency, openness and interest will be paramount personality traits related to the success of anyone embarking towards increased awareness.

          Support article from Author Trane Francks, see below:

          “Consciousness and physical matter may be more related than we think. For example, we know that all matter exhibits particle/wave duality. Depending on the expectations of the observer, one sees matter behaving as a particle or as a wave. The expectations of the observer brings the question of consciousness inextricably into the equation, yet we don’t yet have the math to quantify this interaction. Being able to directly measure and quantify the effects of consciousness is an ambitious goal, but it may very well be strictly outside our ability because the simple act of observing (measuring) affects the outcome. You cannot observe something without having consequences.”

          This descriptive statement above is not new physics information. It can be found in any documentary or talk about basic physics.

          The reality of what you observe and interpret in your everyday life is the key to positive change.

          “When the brain forms memories or learns a new task, it encodes the new information by tuning connections between neurons”

          Berkeley’s graduate division on Neuroscience Website:

          “Changing the brain: For optimal learning to occur, the brain needs conditions under which it is able to change in response to stimuli (neuroplasticity) and able to produce new neurons (neurogenesis).

          Stress, adequate sleep, good nutrition, and regular exercise all play parts in the overall improvements.

          The most effective learning involves recruiting multiple regions of the brain for the learning task. These regions are associated with such functions as memory, the various senses, volitional control, and higher levels of cognitive functioning.”

            Diffused Learning: Getting Started

            A simple 1 step task of starting with 15-60 minutes per day (15 days-30 days) on a topic outside of our immediate knowledge “such as cosmology or meditation” can help to expand our thinking, actions, and performance in all aspects of life.

            Every individual will respond differently to this type of approach. Some will require shorter periods of stimulation and others more.

            This diffused learning process must be carried out consistently for at least 15 days-30 days.

            Audio tapes can be listened to during commutes, in the office, during light workouts, etc.

            Advertising

            This is all about diffused learning and thinking on the right side of the brain.

            Good luck readers!

            How to Memorize a Speech the Smart Way

            How to Memorize a Speech the Smart Way

            Did you know that 75% of the population suffers from glossophobia? That scary sounding word is one of the most common phobia’s in the world, fear of public speaking.

            I’ll bet even as you are reading this, you are getting nervous thinking about giving a speech.

            I have got good news for you. In this article, I will share with you a step by step method on how to memorize a speech the smart way. Once you have this method down, your confidence in yourself to deliver a successful speech will increase substantially. Read on to feel well prepared the next time you have to memorize and deliver a speech.

            Common Mistakes of Memorizing a Speech

            Before we get to the actual process of how to memorize a speech the smart way, let’s look at the two most common mistakes many of us tend to make while preparing for a speech.

            Complete Memorization

            In an attempt to ensure they remember every detail, many people aim to completely memorize their speech. They practice it over and over until they have every single word burned into their brain.

            In many ways, this is understandable because most of us are naturally frightened of having to give a speech. When the time comes, we want to be completely and totally prepared and not make any mistakes.

            While this makes a lot of sense, it also comes with its own negative side. The downside to having your speech memorized word for word is that you sound like a robot when delivering the speech. You become so focused on remembering every single part that you lose the ability to inflect your speech to varying degrees, and free form the talk a bit when the situation warrants.

            Lack of Preparation

            The other side of the coin to complete memorization is people who don’t prepare enough. Because they don’t want to come off sounding like a robot, they decide they will mostly “wing it”.

            Sometimes they will write a few main points down on a piece of paper to remind themselves. They figure once they get going, the details will somehow fill themselves in under the big talking points while they are doing the talking.

            The problem is that unless this is a topic you know inside and out and have spoken on it many times, you’ll wind up missing key points. It’s almost a given that as soon as you are done with your speech, you’ll remember many things you should have brought up while talking.

            Advertising

            There’s a good balance to be had between over and under preparing. Let’s now look at how to memorize a speech the smart way.

            How to Memorize a Speech (Step-by-Step Guide)

            1. Write Out Your Speech

            The first step in the process is to simply write out your speech.

            Many people like to write out the entire speech. Other people are more inclined to write their speech outline style. Whichever way your brain works best is the way you should write your speech.

            Personally, I like to break things down into the primary points I want to make, and then back up each major point with several details. Because my mind works this way, I tend to write out speeches, and articles for that matter, by doing an outline.

            Once I have the outline completed, I will then fill in several bullet points to back up each big topic.

            For instance, if I was going to give a speech on how to get in better shape my outline would look something like this:

            Benefits of being in shape

            • Point #1
            • Point #2
            • Point #3

            Exercise

            • Point #1
            • Point #2
            • Point #3

            Diet

            • Point #1
            • Point #2
            • Point #3

            Rest and hydration

            Advertising

            • Point #1
            • Point #2
            • Point #3

            ConclusionNo need for points here, just a few sentences wrapping things up.

            As you might imagine, this step typically is the hardest because it’s not only the first step but it also involves the initial creation of the speech.

            2. Rehearse Your Speech

            Now that you’ve written your speech, or outline, it’s time to start saying it out loud. It’s completely fine to simply read what you’ve written line by line at this point. What you are working on doing is getting the outline and getting a feel for the speech.

            If you’ve written the entire speech out, you’ll be editing it while you are rehearsing it. Many times as we say things out loud, we realize that what we wrote needs to be changed and altered. This is how we work towards having a well rounded and smooth speech. Feel free to change things as needed while you are rehearsing your speech.

            If you are like me and you’ve written the outline, this is where some of the supporting bullet points will begin to come out. Normally, I will have written several bullet points under each main topic. But as I say it out loud, I will begin to fill in more and more details. I might scratch certain bullet points and add others. I might think of something new at this stage while I am listening to myself and want to add it.

            The key to remember here is that you laying the foundation for your awesome speech. At this point, it’s a work in progress, you are getting the key pieces in place.

            3. Memorize the Bigger Parts

            As you are rehearsing your speech, you want to focus on memorizing the bigger parts, or the main points.

            Going back to my example of how to get in better shape, I’d want to ensure I have memorized my primary points. These include the benefits of being in shape, exercise, diet, rest and hydration, and the conclusion. These are the main points I want to make and I will then fill in further details. I’ve got to ensure I know these very well first and foremost.

            By practicing your major points, you are building the framework for your speech. After you have this solid outline in place, you’ll continue by adding in the details to round things out.

            4. Fill In the Details

            Now that you have the big chunks memorized, it’s time to work on memorizing the details. These detail points will provide support and context for your major points. You can work on this all at once or break it down to the details that support each major point.

            Advertising

            For example, the details I might have under the “exercise” big point might include such things as cardio, weights, how many times a week to exercise, how long to actually exercise, and several examples of actual exercises. In this example, I have 5 detail points to memorize to support my major point of “exercise”.

            It’s a good idea to test yourself regularly as you are rehearsing your speech. Ask yourself:

            What are the 5 detail points I want to talk about that support my 3rd main point?

            You need to be able to fire those off quickly. Until you can do this, you won’t be able to associate each of the details with the main point.

            You have to be able to have them grouped together in your mind so that it comes out naturally in your speech. So that when you think of main point #2, you automatically think of the 4 supporting details associated with it.

            Keep working at this stage until you can run through your speech completely several times and remember all of your big points and the supporting details.

            Once you can do that with relative ease, it will be time for the final step, working on your delivery.

            5. Work on Your Delivery

            You’ve got the bulk of the work done now. You’ve written your speech and rehearsed enough times to have not only your main points memorized but also your supporting details. In short, you should have your speech almost done.

            There’s one more step in how to memorize a speech the smart way. The final component is to work on how you deliver your speech.

            For the most part, you can go give your speech now. After all, you have it memorized. If you want to ensure you do it right, you’ll want to hone how you are delivering your speech.

            Advertising

            You work on your delivery by rehearsing and running through it a number of times and making tweaks along the way. These tweaks or changes may be are’s where you’d want to pause for effect.

            If you’ve found you have used one word 5 times in one paragraph, you might want to swap it out for a similar word a few times to keep it fresh.

            Sometimes while working on this part, I’ve thought of a great story that’s happened to me that I can incorporate to make my point even better.

            When you work on your delivery, you are basically giving your speech a personality as well.

            The Bottom Line

            And there you have it, a step by step approach on how to memorize a speech the smart way.

            The next time you are asked to give a speech don’t let glossophobia rear its familiar head. Instead, remember this easy to use guide to help craft a powerful speech.

            Using the method shown here will help you deliver your next speech with increased confidence.
