Your greatest superpower & advantage
New science shows Dopamine (the brain chemical associated with rewards) is produced through the DESIRE for potential rewards, which proves the value of curiosity.

The Mind Battle Equation:
Hardwired fears (emotions + conditioning)
= Past experiences
= Messy emotions, memories and ego
= Automatic perception
=/+ Ineffectual coping mechanisms (assumptive thinking processes)
+ Insufficient self-assessment
= Dysfunctional thinking, feeling and reacting.
= Poor Life outcomes; physical, mental, emotional, professional.
Add to this disastrous equation:
+ Modern automatic lifestyle further reduces coping mechanisms.
+ Social media that takes advantage of our brain's rewards system.
= A perfect storm.
You were born curious...
But over time your natural curiosity diminishes, which also diminishes creativity. Because (more often than not) self-editing subconscious thoughts reign supreme and unregulated.
According to many academics, including Pulitzer prize-winner Thomas Friedman, a Curious attitude (CQ) is proving more important than IQ (Intelligence Quotient) and EI (Emotional Intelligence). Why? Because it’s the catalyst for both.
Below highlights, self-focused curiosity is not only the means to total betterment, but science suggests could be the missing link that could significantly improve this Human Condition.
And Melinda has first-hand experience...
Answers always begin with a question...
During a perfect storm, resultant from over a decade of self-abuse that lead to a catalogue of adverse health and professional issues, Melinda asked herself one invaluable question:
'How can I improve this situation?'
This changed everything and directed her onto a path of self-discovery & extraordinary transformation. In doing so, she not only overcame every negative issue that had plagued most of her life, but enabled her to biohack her mind, body and spirit into total self-mastery.
Disruption needs to start here!
