Intellectual Warfare: Winning the Battle for Your Mind

by Todd William

A hundred-thousand years ago one of the biggest differences between humans and the rest of the animal kingdom was that we were better at catching them than they were at catching us. Today things have changed…somewhat.

Thinking is easy. Anyone can think. What’s important is thinking intelligently. The problem is that a battle for our minds is taking place, and most people don’t even notice. We’re influenced from the news, social gatherings, what we read, what we are told, and what everyone else is thinking. Salespeople, marketers, and politicians know thousands of ways to push our minds in one direction or another. The result is that society is littered with people who retain beliefs they cannot explain for reasons they do not know.

Make no mistake about it, what you think matters. People fight for their beliefs, defend them, and in some cases even die for them. Lesser minds might be content with easy answers and poorly thought out explanations. But if you seek a strong mind, you first must ensure that you are capable of overcoming the elements that influence the way you think.

Intellectual Warfare is designed to equip you with the tools necessary to win the battle for your mind. The book spans a host of topics ranging from the human ego, natural biases, illusion and complexity of ideas, and to the weapons of persuasion constantly directed at your mind. You have a brain for a reason, this book will ensure you are making the most of it.

Your Mind and Altering Memories

by Darwaysh Life Coach

Your Mind and Altering Memories
Problem is that most people associate their present with their past. They are not ready to create new memories because of fear. This is the fear of history repeating itself, the fear the past will become the present once more. But the problem is that most of us accept our bad experiences as the defining limits for our future experiences and are thus not ready to change or create the new memory. The reason is that mostly we don’t know how to get a new experience and will it be as good as the last bad experience, and like it or not, most of the people unconsciously still like that bad experience since it’s easy to stick to the past and continue doing what one is doing instead of bringing a change. Memories are the most difficult to change and it takes courage to alter the memories of a traumatic experience. The good news though is that it’s not impossible since memories are the imprints of our experiences that can be revised when revisited from different vantage points.
