Peak Performance Brain Training Secrets Revealed!
By Richard Regal
Peak perfomance brain training is essential for anyone
wanting to be at their best in the 21st Century. We've had lots
of focus on getting fit and eating the right foods over the
last 20 years, but very little attention is given to your
brain. It's amazing really because this is like the source of
the stream, and everything else flows downhill from there. You
absolutely have to be performing mentally at your very best, if
you want to surge ahead in life.
Today more than ever before, you need to keep your brain
tuned like a high-performance engine. Whether you are an
athlete, a student, a would-be entrepreneur, a solo mother who
needs to be at her best, or a baby boomer who wants to stay
sharp into the 'mature' years, peak performance brain training
is an absolute must.
How do you train your brain to perform at the peak of its
abilities? This is a question neuroscientists are giving a lot
of attention to. Fortunately, there are existing systems that
have been used to develop peak performance.
You are probably familiar with Yoga as a series of
stretching and relaxation exercises, however this is just the
tip of the iceberg. The many systems of Yoga are focused on
mental development, with the ultimate goal of achieving cosmic
consciousness, or enlightenment... a state of union with the
Divine. To that end, for millenia, yogis in India have spent
their whole lives dedicated to tuning their minds to the
subtlest levels of awareness. This takes extraordinary
discipline, time and sacrifice... something that very few
people have in the modern world. We are fortunate though that
science has provided us with shortcuts.
With the advances of neuroscience, we have discovered ways
of 'reading' and mapping the brains of the greatest yogis,
meditators, and even creative geniuses. These are the people
that have mastered peak performance through their long arduous
brain training methods. Various brain technologies are
revealing their secrets and we can now easily recreate
those peak performance states in others.
There are some simple brain training ideas you can use to
achieve and maintain peak performance. Breath control is a
great place to start. By taking slow, deep breaths you calm and
centre yourself. Whenever you are in a peak performance state,
you can anchor that condition with a physical gesture or action
like making a fist and punching the air. You will need to
repeat this anchor many times to drive it home. Then when you
want to get back into that peak performance state you can
repeat the anchor and it will trigger the same set of emotional
and physiological states you were in before. Relaxation and
visualization practice also plays a huge part in getting to be
the best that you can be.
But all this takes time and effort. Which is why the
high-tech alternatives are so appealing!
You can now achieve the same ultra-tuned brain states in
minutes that most peak performers have taken a lifetime of hard
work to achieve. It seems a little unfair really! However, we
can only be thankful and seize the opportunity to live at the
peak of our abilities.
