I’m going to go through really quickly to ten different things
But what I want you to do is
to be able to memorize these 10 things
and so, what we’re going to do is
we’re going to go through
and I’m gonna teach you this very quickly
ummm, a way of putting it onto your body
And we’re going to put it onto your body just for ease
So, I’m going to give you the 10 keys
to having an ageless mind
Every single one of them you’ve either heard me say
or you intuitively know that these are important
That’s not the reason I’m saying it
The reason I’m saying it
is to take knowledge and turn it into power
And I want you to take those ideas
and have them have real impact
And what I want you to do is, when I’m going through it
I want you to cycle through and on a piece of paper rate yourself
on a scale of 0 to 10
How well am I doing in that category?
One third of your memory is predetermined by genetics and biology
Let’s say two-thirds is in your control
These are the ten things I would focus on
So the first one is a good brain diet
Good Brain Diet. So on a scale of 0 to 10
What’s an honest assessment if you’re honest and true to yourself?
Where are you on your diet?
So we talk about the most important foods for your brain
that are neurological like protecting neuro protective
So we’re talking about avocados
We’re talking about blueberries
or what I call it “brain berries”
We’re talking about broccoli
We’re talking about eggs
If this is allowed by your diet
We’re talking about coconut oil or olive oil
We’re talking about green leafy dark vegetables
Wild salmon if you’re allowed…If that’s part of your diet also as well
I do every morning, I do like an almond turmeric like tea
All these things are neuro protective
No.2 Killing ANTs
(Automatic Negative Thoughts)
How well are you controlling your self-talk?
On a scale of 0 to 10
Honestly, if you’ve done this with me
how strong are you?
0 to 10
Do your thoughts make a difference?
Yes or yes?
If I say constantly “I’m getting too old”
Is that going to be self-fulfilling?
Yes or yes?
我若说 “我健忘 记性不太好”
if I say “I’m forgetful, I have a bad memory”
If you fight for your limitations
you get to keep them
So your mind is always eave-dropping on your self-talk
And really what we’re talking about here is movement
Your… the number one function of your brain
is to control your movement, Alright?
That’s why we know there’s not just a brain-body connection
but a body brain connection that using your body
in different ways stimulates neurogenesis
It stimulates neuroplasticity
It stimulates brain derived nootropic factors
which is the fertilizer for making new connections
So you have to move
But we live in a very sedentary life
I was reading this book talking about bare foot kids
and how we’re taking away seesaws and swings and all these things
We’re over protecting them
and we’re putting them in a very sterile environment
They’re not moving as much, right?
They’re always on thier devices
and they’re not getting the brain growth, right?
And it’s leaning to learning challenges
So on, but how much are you moving every single day?
有人说 久坐如同吸烟 你们认为呢？
They say sitting is the new smoking, Right?
You do not want to sit 8 hours a day
and just, and just study
I’m going through the rest fast
No.4 Brain Nutrients
Because, you know, we’re traveling and we
don’t eat the best foods ever
Are you supplementing with…
There’re certain nutrients and I would just have…
I would make this a no-brainer
I would just go to your functional medicine doctor
进行荷尔蒙测试 全光谱测试 食物过敏测试
and get like hormonal tests Full-Spectrum tests, Food Sensitivity
and just see what your baseline is
Because I really do believe that people are bio individual
I’ve seen all the research, talk to so many individuals
find out what works for you because if you’re
the most important supplement is DHA for the brain
Alright? That’s No.4
No.5 Positive Peer Group
So rate yourself 0 to 10
有多少灵感 鼓励 挑战
How inspired, encouraged, challenged
energized are you by your peer group?
And again, peer is choice
I’m not talking about your family
although they may be or your peer
but the people that you choose, right?
So either get a new group
or choose who you’re going to let affect you positive peer group
Because it really affects your your brain
0 to 10
No.6 Clean Environment
How clean is your environment?
How organized is it? 0 to 10
And you know this, right?
Is your external world reflected by your internal world?
and vice versa?
Because it’s a feedback loop
Have you ever cleaned your room? Clean your desktop? Clean your work area?
And all of a sudden you have clarity of thought?
The reason why I brought up the boxing match is this:
is because I go over there we watch this fight
and afterwards I was like, you know
I was me sitting here
Sylvester Stallone on the couch here
and then to his left was Arnold Schwarzenegger
And I swear, if you took a picture of that like they’d be like
Who photoshoped that Asian dude in had that photo? [laught]
But I was like what dose it take to be a champion like those guys?
And then Arnold said:
“Jim, the differwnce between the amateur and a champion
is a champion’s willing to push past the pain period
just like for those who did
the exercise over the past few days
It’s that intensity
Is there a pain period in a relationship?
Is there a pain period sometimes in a health crisis?
Is there pain period also in your business?
Multiple pain periods, right?
The ability to push past
That’s where the period’s now
because you’re just put in days and days here
and you feel like your attention is wandering
and going different places
This is the time when it counts
just like with your workout, right?
So if Lorenzo and his team’s here that would
be…That would be the goal
So that’s number…That’s No.6
On a scale of 0 to 10
How good is your sleep?
It’s important for your brain
3 really simple reasons
It’s where you consolidate short to long-term memory
That’s where you actually remember
You do not, even when you’re doing these workouts build your muscles
When you’re working out
you build it when you’re resting
Same thing with your mental muscles
Same thing with your memory
So that’s where you consolidate short to long term memory
The other reason why you sleep is it
cleans plaque out that could lead to dementia and potentially brain aging challenges
The last reason why is how you dream. Right?
Your REM sleep, your REM stages of your sleep your REM stages of your sleep
That’s very important because that’s where your creativity, that’s where…
I’m telling you, like we did a whole thing on super brain
On how to remember your dreams
But specifically why do you want to member your dreams?
Because you learn all day, your brain doesn’t shut off at night
It’s it’s more active at night
And so, Elias Howe created a sewing machine in his dream
Paul Mccartney came up with the song “Yesterday” in his dream
Mary Shelley came up with Frankenstein in his dream
Periodic Table came to a chemist in his dream
你们的梦可能会 解决很多问题 工作上的 生活上的
What are you dreaming about at night that could solve a lot of the problems in your business, in your life,
but you forget it the next morning.
That’s why the first thing I do in my
morning routine is remember my dreams
and six steps on how to do that
We talked about in super brain
After that, sleep
No.8 Brain Protection
Are you protecting your brain?
And I’m not just talking about…
about wearing a helmet in extreme sports
Yes, that’s obvious
I’ve had series of traumatic brain injuries
and concussions and all those challenges
Yes, but I mean things like EMFs
like, we did a podcast episode specifically talking about
Electromagnetic fields and how it’s affecting the brain
Is that affecting the brain? You think?
You think it’s nor…You think we have evolved
or we’re born to be able to be able to handle all the electricity coming out these smart devices.
You know, I read recently that over 90% of kids sleep with their phones underneath their pillows
Right? Not on airplane mode, right?
So it’s big big big challenge
We just did two videos on that
They’re 4 million views in just a matter of weeks
You should watch watch those videos
EMFs, protect your brain
No.9 New Learnings
New Learnings, meaning that
you might have seen the longevity
This is a longevity conference
on the cover of Time magazine
where there was this study on nuns
Who were living 80 90 and above
What was the secret to their longevity?
Part of it was their emotional faith, gratitude
The other half: Lifelong learners
These group of women were just learning everyday, reading everyday
having deep conversations
doing the work every single day
It added years to their life
and life to their years
So always learning
and I’m preaching to the choir here
But I know for a fact
most of you could actually push it even more, alright?
That’s how you create neurogenesis and neuroplasticity
If you want to know the secret to having an ageless mind
Neurogenesis says you could create new brain cells to the day you die
Neuroplasticity’s saying you can create new connections until the day you die
The two most important factors outside of sleep,
that’s going to promote neurogenesis neuroplasticity
novelty and nutrition
Just like your body
you have to give it novelty or stimulus
and you have to give it nutrition and feed that muscle
Does that make sense?
Same thing with your mental muscles
so novelty of movement
novelty of ideas
But most people, as we grow older,
and I mean chronological age,
We shut down because we feel like we know everything
Right? So there’s no novelty that’s there
There’s a Rumi quote that says:
“Sell your cleverness for bewilderment”
Like, when’s the last time you felt bewildered?
Remember, You don’t have creativity or have focus
没有记忆力 没有困惑 没有爱
or have a memory or have bewilderment or have love
or have motivation or have energy
you do those things
活动 创造 关注 困惑
You do energy, you do creativity, you do focus, you do bewildment
So we’re taking nouns turning into verbs
我们有结构 有程序 有策略 之后你就能随心所欲了
and we’re taking a structure, a process a strategy and now you can replicate that at will
and finally the last thing
No.10 stress management
And this is the invisible one, right?
nobody wants to talk about
but you are under…
how many people didn’t realize how much stress
they were under until they were like hanging out here, on the beach.
Because it’s like fish
they don’t see the water because it’s there all the time
But we are under so much environmental stress
情绪压力 工作压力 认知压力 财务压力
emotional stress, work stress, cognitive stress, financial stress
And we don’t realize that
but you don’t get the best of the best out of that
It’s good for fight-or-flight sympathetic mode
But when you want to go
when you want to be about
it’s not good to think
If you’re stressed, it doesn’t help you to study
When you’re stressed, it doesn’t help you give a presentation
When you’re stressed, it doesn’t help you perform cognitively
because it shuts down cortisol, adrenaline
Big parts of your brain
So stress management
How are you managing your stress?
