Updating My Brain...Is This Possible?!?

Updated: May 29

Yes please! Can you hook up a magical vacuum to my ear and suck out all of the brain fog, anxiety, confusion, cluttered thoughts, depression, forgetfulness, and negative emotions?!? Sign me up! If it was only that easy, right? But, what if I told you that there is a solution to upgrading your brain and how it operates? We humans are complex and emotional beings, and we have a lot of apps running behind the scenes that are draining our energy. Some of those apps need an “update” to operate at a higher frequency, and that is exactly what the Positive Intelligence Mental Fitness Program does.

When we are not taking care of ourselves, we find that we are exhausted, short-tempered, overwhelmed, and our brain gets hijacked by our Saboteurs without us even knowing it. We end up consumed with the needs and demands of those around us in our personal and professional lives that we forget to take time to nurture our own. Our stress levels increase creating imbalances in our bodies and in our relationships, and we are left wondering how we got there.

The Positive Intelligence Program, (PQ for short) and I, as your PQ coach, can take you from not knowing why your life is in shambles in some areas such as relationships, performance, or wellbeing, and what is sabotaging you, to creating new habits with only a 15 min daily practice that results in greater levels of success and fulfillment. Your brain begins to operate with more ease and flow as you tap into the best version of yourself. Thank God for neural plasticity!

Tell me more, you ask? Each area will grow because we uncover and treat the root cause, not just the symptoms through our factor analysis. Just like thousands of colors can be created and factored down to just three primary colors: red, blue, and yellow, so can habit formation. We focus on developing only three core muscles: Saboteur Interceptor, Self-Command, and the Sage Muscle to create new neural pathways in the brain. This rewires the brain at the root level rather than treating the symptoms

To keep it simple, you have two very different regions of the brain that help you thrive and survive. The survival region is where your inner Saboteurs live, generating stress and negative emotions when you handle life’s challenges. In your thrive region, you will find your inner Sage, which generates positive emotions such as curiosity, empathy, and creativity while handling life’s challenges.

All operating systems get bogged down and sluggish when they are not updated. How do we get stuck when our mental apps need an update? Our brain gets hijacked by the Saboteurs when we are living in our survival mode and the stress response is rarely shut off. This important survival circuitry of the limbic system along with our amygdala, was designed to alert us to danger, real or perceived, to keep us alive. Although our brain is wonderfully intricate, it cannot tell the difference between stress from running from a bear or being stuck in traffic.

When our "survival app" continuously runs in the background of our brain, whether it is at a high or low level, this can result in fatigue, anxiety, depression, weight gain, chaos at home, failed relationships, people pleasing, victim mentality, avoidance, imposter syndrome, arguments, fogginess/confusion, procrastination, health issues, and more! Our battery gets drained. Your mind should be your best friend, but oftentimes it can also be your worst enemy. Let's change that!

Our breakthrough, research-based tools strengthen the part of your brain that serves you and quiets the part that sabotages you. This enables you to handle life’s challenges with a more positive mindset and less stress.

Over 500 thousand participants reported:

Some of you maybe feeling cynical about all of this positive thinking hype. I get it. I was once there too until I chose to surrender and trust the process. Just like physical exercise, mental fitness is a daily practice to stay in optimal health. I challenge you to dig deeper on and research it for yourself. Scroll to the bottom of the website and click on resources for the white papers.  

Why I LOVE the PQ operating system, is because it leads each individual to self actualization that spills into all major areas of life: wellbeing, relationships, and performance. Don't threaten me with a thriving, healthy life! AND as listed above, it also works beautifully in teams and organizations. Imagine the possibilities of a life where a healthy work culture harmonizes with a fulfilling personal life. Envision having the mental freedom to truly enjoy it, without the constant anxiety of waiting for something to go wrong.

I invite you to join my FREE 60 min workshop on June 10th at 5:30pm PST called, "Upgrade Your Narrative: Increase The Quality of Your Life," where I will share more about this AMAZING program. Join me in discovering the clarity and peace of mind you can achieve during life's challenges. With a 15 min daily mental fitness routine broken up throughout the day, you will upgrade your brain.
