Publisher's Summary

Critical Thinking and Problem Solving 

“Twenty years from now, you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.” - Mark Twain 

Everyone struggles. That’s life. How you approach that struggle and deal with it determines your quality of life. You can live the life you want to by following some simple guidelines. Nothing can keep you from accomplishing your dreams. Sure, there will be setbacks, but meet those setbacks with a positive can-do attitude, and you’ll see anything is possible. 

You picked this book because you’re curious. That’s good. That means you’ve got a desire and mind willing to work for it. Curiosity is a sign that you’re looking for change. We all know change doesn’t happen overnight, but it does begin there. Take the next step now, get the book, and begin your own personal journey to mental toughness and improved problem solving. 

In this book, you’ll learn:

  • Why brain training is a lifelong journey to a better you and not something acquired in a single decision or event. 
  • How increasing your mental focus can boost your creative mind. Creativity is more than paintbrushes and pages. 
  • Mental exercises you can use to develop your brain’s ability to capture and retain information. 
  • The importance of healthy eating on your brain’s ability to retain information. 
  • How enabling your mental toughness is entwined with your emotional and physical wellbeing. 
  • How to increase your ability to think and reason more critically and clearly. 
  • And MUCH more to help you turn on your brain and your mental abilities to produce at levels you’ve never experienced before.

Dancing Can Help Brain Training & Memory Improveme

Each chapter is packed with golden nuggets! I had an idea about multi-tasking but this makes me more clear on when to multitask, something I had been worrying about for a long time. Knowing how dancing can help improve my brain training was a fun idea ... I like dancing. I particularly resonate with his sharp grandma, age is truly not what's slowing us down indeed, I too have a grandma that is still so sharp and funny. And oh yh, this author is a amazingly humorous, he knows how to keep the listener tuned in and smiling.

The narrator's delivery was spot on. Full on great experience all around with this audiobook. I listened it twice and literally just bought a headband earphone to listen to at nights in bed! Brilliant work!

Excellent Guidebook on Brain Training

This is a great book that will help both beginners and those who already practice certain aspects of brain training in their lives. I have been practicing mindfulness and using mind maps for a long time, and have still learnt new things. The summary / review of brain functions and types of memory was very helpful. I found the practical exercises and the 30-day action plan particularly valuable. I definitely recommend this book.

A must read/listen

How you utilize your brain determines your success, happiness, relationships, creativity and, well, your life.

This book puts that in focus (pun intended) and give you the why and how to better utilize your brain.

My point? If you have a brain, this book is a must read/listen.

Great Learning - Especially for TBI survivors

As a Traumatic Brain Injury survivor (TBI) this book was so beneficial in helping me to retrain my brain to learn and remember.

Since my accident I've had trouble retaining written information but after listening to this book and starting to implement the steps and suggestions in the book, I am noticing positive change in my daily life already!

Genius

As someone who works in a call center, my brain is trained to be in the moment then forget. So, sadly I forget a lot of important stuff outside of work. This book has changed my life !

Brain Aerobics!

This book was not only informative but also very entertaining! Woodruff outlines some great ways to stimulate your brain and memory powers that don't make it feel as if you are 'exercising'. The sections on mental toughness and military training were fascinating. I now know how to eat an elephant! 😉(listen to chapter 9 for explanation) There are great tips throughout. Other favorites are chapters 10 & 11.

I also really appreciated the discussion of the impact of food on the brain - especially the idea of eating certain foods before a particular activity. This whole concept of the effect diet has on the brain is still foreign to many. Enough cannot be said on the subject.

In all, an absolute gem! The book is well written with solid content. Lawrence does the book justice by his excellent delivery. I plan on using the 30-day action plan!

I'm ready to listen to it again!

Not only was the content great and insightful, but the narrator is excellent as well. THAT is how I like to listen to a book, with a narrator like James Lawrence. I've always been intrigued with the topic of Mental Toughness, like the book talks about with Navy Seals. So inspiring, and the 30 day action plan is well laid out. Let's do this thing!
