)-- “A Better Way of Thinking” is leadership foundation, pioneering a new theory that explains how our brain produces thoughts and behaviors that take us in the wrong direction.
This knowledge has led to the development of a simple strategy that enables us to better manage that part of our personality our brain created that is not always sympathetic to our mental well-being.
Humanity pays a price, says Richard Waldman, founder of “A Better Way of Thinking,” for having a highly creative brain that has created, without our knowledge or permission, an image of who our brain thinks we are that communicates through the chatter-in-our-head. Sigmund Freud, the father of modern day psychiatry called this image, the ego, which is Latin for “I,” the self, which demonstrates that our personality has evolved in more than one direction.
The self has its own set of rules and protects what it values most, its image, being right, having control and not being accountable, which is why Washington is in trouble; our prisons are full and our children are failing, which raises a question. What evidence shows that our brains have the power to create on their own?
The proof show-up in our nighttime dreams, which are often chaotic and nonsensical. People and places do not appear as they really are because our brains have the ability to take what is true and twist it into something of its own making.
One might think, who cares about nighttime dreams, after all, I’m awake, I’m in control; I know what’s going on.
But wait, there’s more to the story. Much of what our brain does, it does in our subconscious, where even technology gets lost. For example, at this very moment our brains are controlling our heart beat and chemical levels, without our knowledge.
When you combine the brain's ability to miss-create with its control of our subconscious, a picture begins to emerge. A picture you might find in a science fiction thriller, featuring “Our Brain,” tapping into its own creativity to create mechanisms that govern how we think and feel.
Being aware that our personality has evolved in more than one direction creates a shift in thinking that enables other shifts to follow.
