Dr. Srini Pillay on EMPATHY and NEURO-MIRRORING

Dr. Srini Pillay on EMPATHY and NEURO-MIRRORING

Dr. Srini Pillay, Harvard professor and famous brain science expert and leading authority in stress, anxiety and resilience, talks on empathy and neuro-mirroring.

The brain is not a generator of consciousness but a transmitter of consciousness. We mirror not only actions but emotions as well. What we feel is what someone else is feeling. We are not always in possession of our own feelings.

To bring a change in your life you must bring a change in your brain!

Ludwick Marishane: A bath without water

Ludwick Marishane: A bath without water

If you had to walk a mile for a jug of water every day, as millions of people do, it’s unlikely you’d use that precious water to bathe. Young entrepreneur Ludwick Marishane tells the amazing, funny story of how he invented a cheap, clean and convenient solution: DryBath, the world’s first bath-substituting lotion.

Student Ludwick Marishane invented a water-less bathing lotion and was named the 2011 Global Student Entrepreneur of the Year Award — all because he didn’t feel like taking baths.

WHY YOU SHOULD LISTEN TO HIM

One day Ludwick Marishane and his best friend were sunbathing in the sweltering heat in their native Limpopo. Marishane’s friend turned to him and said, “Man, why doesn’t somebody invent something that you can just put on your skin and then you don’t have to bathe?” Marishane, 17 at the time, thought: Yeah, why not? It took six months of research to develop a formula for a lotion that cleanses cheaply and easily — especially important for the 2.5 billion people worldwide who lack proper access to water and sanitation.

DryBath has the same effect as anti-bacterial cleanser, but it’s odorless and creates a biodegradable film that cleanes and moisturizes the skin. Five years later, it’s now available on the market. Marishane has since enrolled at the University of Cape Town in South Africa and was named the Global Student Entrepreneur of the Year in 2011.

Michael Jordan on Expectancy

Michael Jordan on Expectancy

Today’s quote is from the amazing Michael Jordan, the greatest basketball player of all time.

Jordan made the profound statement:
“You have to expect things of yourself before you can do them.”

That’s important insight into the value of expectancy.

As a differentiating value, expectancy means anticipating with confidence of fulfillment; or a belief centered on the future.

Jordan didn’t become so great by accident or luck. He believed in a great future by anticipating it.

His confidence came first, and then his competence quickly followed.

Many people like to reference the statement “believe in yourself.” But Jordan’s statement brings greater clarity to this idea. His belief is centered on the future because he expects it. And he expects it from himself.

What about you? Do you have a dream? Do you have a desire to do something great or become the greatest in your field? If so, I encourage you to carefully study the value of expectancy. When you combine anticipation with confidence, and a willingness to challenge yourself, you might just become the Michael Jordan in your field.

Now, wouldn’t that be cool?
