Leaders are Readers

June 17, 2019

“Leaders are readers” Zig Ziglar said once “If you love to read you can learn anything you want to know”. What I love about reading is that when you pick up a book your brain 🧠 focuses in the words and the thoughts associated to the words and a vivid imaginary process starts when your brain is looking for the proper neural pathways to understand what is the meaning behind the words involving different thought processes like memory, focus, and the “Eureka” moment where your brain understands what’s going on or starts recreating the most fascinating vivid awake dreams. I was once an avid reader and still have home over 300 real books in my manhattan apartment and to be honest I have not been reading 📖 as much cause of other obligations, phone screen time those are bogus damn excuses I am picking up a book every day and engage in daily reading from now on #zigziglar #harvardbusinessreview #superbodysuperbrain #wbff #npc #reading #reader #leader #stoic #instafit #iphone #branding #train #instaread #readingweek #yoga #book

It’s ok to struggle but not to give up

June 14, 2019

Nietzsche’s classic line was “what doesn’t kill me makes me stronger.” It’s a nice sentiment, but is it true? Don’t people who were born with advantages do better in life? Isn’t it better not to suffer setbacks? Why would someone want to experience disadvantages or difficulties?

Those questions were answered in a recent paper published by Cornell University. Researchers looked at RO1 grant application for the National Institutes of Health, focusing on individuals who just missed receiving funding (“near-misses”) and individuals who just succeeded in getting funded (“near-winners”). Comparing the two groups over the ten years following first submission, results found that near-misses produced work that garnered substantially higher impacts than their near-win counterparts. Researchers concluded,

“For those who persevere, early failure should not be taken as a negative signal—but rather the opposite, in line with Shinya Yamanaka’s advice to young scientists, after winning the Nobel prize for the discovery of iPS cells, ‘I can see any failure as a chance.’”

It’s beautiful proof that getting what we want isn’t always what we need. Coming up short, getting stuck, getting passed over—this can be fuel. That’s what Marcus Aurelius was saying when he talked about the impediment to action being an advancement to action, how the obstacle can be the way. There’s another study that shows that college basketball teams down a point or two at half-time were actually more likely to win than the team with the lead. Again, because it made them hungry. The struggles gave them something to prove.

Letters from a Stoic by Seneca

June 5, 2019

“Letters from a stoic” Seneca- The good life is a life lived in accordance with nature. That means leading a simple and honorable life free of vice and temptation – but that’s harder to achieve than it sounds. Even so, studying philosophy can help us in this pursuit. By illuminating the truth, it shows us the path through life’s many challenges and allows us to face danger, setbacks and the inevitability of death, with serenity. Once we have internalized the lessons philosophy offers, our minds can become oases of calm in a tempestuous world.  

Actionable advice:

Keep your mind in good shape, just as you would with your body.

We all know the importance of exercising and eating plenty of vegetables and cutting down on intoxicants like caffeine and alcohol. But health isn’t just a matter of hitting the gym and maintaining a healthy diet – it’s also about training your mind and cultivating a healthy attitude. So don’t forget to complement your fitness regimen with some mental gymnastics.

Studying and learning don’t just keep your mind agile, they also open the door to the great truths of the world and mentally prepare you to cope in trying times. Once you’ve developed the right attitude, you’ll be able to face anything! #harvardbusinessreview #lettersfromastoic #stoic #seneca #philosophy #superbodysuperbrain #stoicism #instastoic #history @blinklist #blinklist #book #newyorktimesbestseller

Neuroglia cells and the brain

March 9, 2019

SBSB Education Academy: Neuroglia, also called glial cells, are cells of the nervous system. These cells that form myelin, protect, support, and maintain equilibrium in your nervous system are called glial cells. They are also commonly known as neuroglia and even more simply glia. In more detailed terms, neuroglia are cells in your nervous system that are not neurons.They compose a voluminous support system that is essential to the proper operation of nervous tissue and the nervous system. Unlike neurons, glial cells do not have axons, dendrites, or conduct nerve impulses. Neuroglia are typically smaller than neurons and are about three times more numerous in the nervous system. Photo description Cells of the Brain: neurons are yellow, #astrocytes are orange, #oligodendrocytes are grey and #microglia are white.
