By mind-brain development, the authors refer to a much more comprehensive transformation than what is commonly understood – they are talking about a sequence of fundamental shifts to new realities in the way our brain functions and in the way we look upon ourselves, others, and the world. For success, who we are is far more important than the knowledge, skills, and relationships we have and what we do – because with higher mind-brain development, our knowledge and skills become more useful, our relationships more enriching, and our actions more effective.
As part of presenting the secrets of world-class performance, the book details the inspiring peak experiences that underlie top performance and how top performers have a more orderly, restfully alert, and efficient/economical brain than average performers. The quality of our brain functioning thus underlies the quality of our thoughts and actions. There are a large number of books on how to think and what attitudes to assume in order to be successful. Often these books describe the mental and behavioural attributes underlying high performance. However, just reading a book does not fundamentally change our brain. Therefore, such books tend to have highly limited benefits for improving performance and happiness.
This research-based book will show you the many benefits of higher mind-brain development and how to effortlessly attain it through the practice of the Transcendental Meditation technique (www.tm.org).
