Dementia, CEOs, Whole Mind Success

What causes dementia?

Dementia is due to changes in the brain that can be caused by various factors such as Stroke, Head Injuries and Tumors.

Other factors include an underactive Thyroid gland, fluid buildup in the brain and Vitamin B12 deficiency.

The latter factors, fortunately, can be readily treated, as can the dementia-like symptoms caused by depression or the wrong combination of medicines.

From Radio to Television to the Internet

Posted: Thursday, August 6, 2009
At : 6:04 PM

The new media began when Radio broadcasts were more widely available in the 1920’s, with president Hoover calling it an Instrument of Learning and Beauty.

Then in the early 40’s we saw the growth of Television broadcasts in the USA, and eventually the 1990's made the worldwide web, the Internet, available to the public - and the new Information Age took off.

Radio has recently seen a revival, with increasing numbers of people listening to programs on the internet. In fact recent surveys report that one in three people now listen to the radio via the internet.

The internet, of course, is also a great resource for Education and Training. The number of students doing on-line degrees has risen, and nearly 4 million students have taken at least one on-line course.

Whole Mind Success is also offering some of its methods on-line. We will be helping to develop a Creativity curriculum as part of a new Global Learning website.

We expect that this will provide the opportunity for many more people in our international community to learn practical methods to increase their creativity - and to do so whenever they choose, 24 hours a day throughout the year.

Radio Broadcast

Posted: Monday, July 27, 2009
At : 11:59 AM

On Saturday we were at the famous CBS studios on Wilshire Blvd. - where stations like 94.7, The Wave, and 93.1, Jack FM, are broadcast.

This time the focus was not so much on Creativity as it was on Stress Reduction.

In the current economy, many more people are suffering from stress and the many illnesses caused by stress.
Of course we all know that one major cause of stress today is Financial stress.
Add to that the ubiquitous Mortgage Stress with the increased Cost of Living and falling real incomes - and it is no wonder that Stress is taking its toll on everyone.

The unfortunate fact is that the more stressed we are, the less able we are to make sensible decisions that will help us improve our situation.

Bala Kanayson, our whole Mind Success workshop facilitator is an expert on Stress Reduction.
In recognition of his education, training and experience, he was elected a Fellow of the American Institute of Stress headquartered in New York.

The CBS radio program resulted in a large number of calls with quite a few callers benefiting from the stress reduction methods explained on-air.

Laughter and your Brain - Creativity?

Posted: Monday, March 30, 2009
At : 1:14 PM

Here is a far from humorous account of the neuroscience of laughter.

As we know, the creativity which results in the "eureka" moment is often accompanied by laughter.

The areas of the brain involved in laughter include the

* Left superior frontal gyrus (a part of the Frontal Lobe of the brain)
* Temporal Lobe
* Hypothalamus

The physiological effects of laughter include:

* Increased heart rate
* Increased rate and/or change in breathing
* Increased blood pressure
* Strengthened immune system
* Reduced levels of various nurochemicals – the catecholines and hormones.


After abdominal surgery or broken ribs AVOID laughing.
Excessive laughing has sometimes led to heart attacks.

Balance your left and right brain, access your subconscious mind, enter the Silence, and expand your creativity with Whole Mind Success.

Creativity, Laughter, Innovation

Posted: Thursday, March 12, 2009
At : 9:58 PM

Whole Mind Success has been invited to present a Keynote Address at the annual AATH Conference in Las Vegas next month.

AATH, the Association for Applied and Therapeutic Humor is
a non-profit professional organization that advances the understanding and application of humor and laughter for their positive benefits.

The Eureka moment is often accompanied by laughter - although the reverse may not be true!

Which part of your Whole Mind is used in humor? Is the left brain or the right brain more active? Is it the conscious mind or the subconscious mind that triggers laughter? How much of it is conditioning and environment?

Whole Mind Success reveals it all, whilst showing you practical methods to balance the brain, delve into Silence and renew your neural circuits.

The result is Pure Creativity.

Music & Memory II

Posted: Wednesday, January 14, 2009
At : 12:43 PM

The nature of Memory on a neuronal level is not as clear cut as the popular press leads us to believe.

With functional MRIs and other brain-imaging techniques, we discover that certain areas of the brain are used during short-term or long-term memory. Just as there is no "one" memory, there is no one area that 'deals' with memory.

In the case of music, our auditory memory involves listening, processing, storing and recalling sounds - in this case, music. Contrary to popular belief, it is not only the right hemisphere which is involved, but also the left. The temporal lobe also plays a major role in musical memory.

Listening to Mozart is pleasurable, but despite popular stories, there is no definitive proof of its benefits on memory. In fact, the one study responsible for the excitement was on college students who took the spatial recognition test and showed an improvement which lasted for less than 15 minutes. Attempts by other research institutions to repeat these findings have not been successful.

What is needed to make sure we stick to our esolutions beyond the first few weeks of 2009?

Yes, most gyms see a drop in numbers by early February - thats when the regulars smile
at one another and enjoy the free machines once again.

A Healthy Brain - Avoiding Dementia

Posted: Monday, August 18, 2008
At : 10:06 PM

Old age and dementia need not be synonymous.

As we age, we can, and should, maintain an alert mind.

A strong memory, analytical abilities and mental dexterity are the reward of
using Whole MInd Success methods regularly throughout our lives.

Today's fMRIs show us the increased neural connections and the development of new neural circuits in our brains - when we "exercise" our brains regularly.

We all deserve to grow old with continued good physical and mental health.
Old age is NOT synonymous with dementia.

Become Creative in 21 Days

Posted: Tuesday, July 22, 2008
At : 1:12 PM

Is it possible to become more Creative in 21 Days?

Neuroscience tells us that New Neural circuits are grown within 3 weeks
of beginning the Stimulation process.

Is what our Mother told us true? - that a new Habit takes 21 Days to form?

What have you found? - tell us.

Why isn't Everyone Creative?

Posted: Wednesday, July 16, 2008
At : 12:39 PM

For the past two decades, Whole Mind Success has been helping people become more creative - throughout the world.

Every one of us can be Creative - and we can be shown how.

As the famous Dr. Maslow said:-

The key question isn't "What fosters creativity?" But it is why in God's name isn't everyone creative?
Where was the human potential lost? How was it crippled? I think therefore a good question might be not why do people create? But why do people not create or innovate?

Whether it be Maslow or Whole Mind Success, the fact is that we can ALL be creative - so lets begin now.

Creativity and the Whole Mind

Posted: Monday, July 7, 2008
At : 12:48 PM

Louis Pasteur, the French scientist said "chance favors only the prepared mind".
So, your mind has to be prepared before you can have those creative "ah-ha" moments.

Which confirms what we say:
"Know your craft well, then use our Whole Mind methods to release your Creativity"

Anyone can use the techniques taught in Whole Mind Success seminars to:

Balance your left and right Brain
Access your subconscious Mind
Enter the creative womb of Silence

and become Fully Creative – every day!

The World's Creative Brains in One Location

Posted: Monday, March 17, 2008
At : 3:54 PM

My fortnight in Singapore was both an intellectual and a culinary feast.

The first week was a heavily scheduled Creativity Seminar at the 20th annual conference of the American Creativity Association (ACA).

We heard from world renowned authorities on neuroscience, creativity, and on the other major corporate buzzword today, innovation.

The conference was in a lovely 5-star hotel on the waterfront, where I presented a paper on Whole Mind Success - which was well received.
Several professors and some Creativity instructors were keen to work with us, as our methods complemented theirs by working from the INSIDE.

The second week was busy with Whole Mind Success workshops at local firms - including an insurance company.

We have all heard about the external ways to help creativity blossom in a corporate setting.

Many of us are familiar with the various ways an organization can create the appropriate environment to allow its creative people to actually be creative.

Whether it is coming up with new ideas and designs, or making the latest widget, those people in your organization who are already regarded as creative will be able to manifest their creativity in a nurturing environment.

What Whole Mind Success does is rather different – we are training corporate employees how to access the source of creativity – we are going into their Minds.

Our seminars teach individuals how to use their Whole Mind to awaken and enhance their creativity and their innovative powers. Whole Mind methods are practical, proven techniques using research from neurology and psychology which have been shown to enhance an individual’s creativity.

Creative Problem Solving with Whole Mind Success

Posted: Sunday, December 30, 2007
At : 12:06 PM

Creative problem solving is the process of finding a unique solution to any problem.
It is a process in which a solution is actually created by the individual, and not learned from someone else.

Whole Mind Success seminars have helped to increase the creative problem-solving skills of engineers and artists, athletes and scientists, students and professors.

These creative problem solving techniques will:

1. Shift a person's mental state into one that nurtures creativity.

2. Help them reframe the problem

3. Increase their supply of new ideas

4. Present fresh perspectives which often lead to elegant solutions
