Left Brain; Right Brain; Subconscious: Who Is In Charge?
I am definitely right brained. Mostly. If you’re curious to find out what you are, click here.
I’m pretty sure most everyone knows about the left brain and the right brain; the left brain is logic and the right brain is creativity. But what a lot of people don’t take into consideration is their subconscious brain.
The subconscious brain is the most powerful. That part of your brain doesn’t just control your impulses and whether or not you act upon them. Robert Kiyosaki, in his book Increase Your Financial IQ, described it like this:
It does not think, but rather reacts, fights, flees, or freezes… The subconscious mind also affects our bodily actions via bodily-kinesthetic intelligence. For example, in the game of golf, pressure may cause a golfer to choke and miss an easy putt. Subconsciously, a person may freeze and not take action out of fear of making a mistake, or stay at a job for security rather than the love of the work.
The way I look at the subconscious mind is that, whether or not you want something doesn’t matter if your SUBCONSCIOUS doesn’t think it will ever happen.
THAT is why it is very important that you always think POSITIVE! Tell yourself that you CAN do something! If you go to do something and suddenly you feel like you can’t THAT is your subconscious working against you.
Shut it up.
Put up or shut up.
If you want it, fight and eventually your subconscious mind will come around.

Cone of Learning
I took one look at this and everything made sense.
I first saw this picture, ever, in the book Increase Your Financial IQ by Robert T. Kiyosaki on page 183. I HIGHLY recommend this book.
People learn differently, everybody knows that, but not everyone knows why some people have difficulty. I have always been good at art because it was something we learned as we worked. Also, the teacher didn’t just talk; they talked and demonstrated.
I never really did well in a class that had us talk and take notes. Participation was key, depending upon the class and whether or not I cared about what I was learning.
But lectures bored me and I only remembered what I read if I was interested (which is how most people are, I would think). To the people who can remember whatever, kudos.
But, a word of advice, I found, adding a picture to the words tended to help. Here’s the math I have in my head: we remember 30% of the pictures we see and 10% of what we read. If you have a picture next to the words, that’s a 40% chance you’ll remember what it is that you are looking at.
I mean, it makes sense.
They have a combination on the list: we remember 50% of what we hear and see, which is why many people are able to remember the words in movies and why I did so well in art classes. Why I still do well in art classes.
I was, am, good at English because I love to read and the more interesting it is, the more likely I am to remember.
