What We Focus On, Literally Expands

One thing that neuroscience and epigenetics have taught us over the last few decades is that all of us have both good and bad genes. Now, when it comes to the science of gene expression, we can literally control which ones get switched on and off. And research shows that this happens automatically and primarily through our thought life and then it manifests itself into our daily actions and habits.

So, what you focus on, literally expands.

Our Genes Load The Gun, But Our Actions Pull The Trigger

So, what you focus on, literally expands.

So if your daily thoughts about, say, losing weight, are negative and pessimistic, you’re going to express more bad genes and vice versa. And this becomes a direct reflection of your daily actions, habits, and, ultimately, your end results.

You see, our genes load the gun, but our actions pull the trigger.

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Sean Green

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
