Want to train your brain for success? Good idea.

Your thoughts determine what you do and how you react to life’s situations. As a result, how you think has a massive impact on your level of success and happiness. And thankfully, it’s possible to train your mind to be stronger in almost any way you like.

However, changing the way we think isn’t exactly a walk in the park. In fact, years of bad habits and unconscious automatic thought patterns can make training your brain very challenging. So, how can you get started?

Physical and mental game

Physical and mental game

Research has shown that regular physical exercise is one way to improve cognitive functions like memory recall, problem-solving, concentration, and attention to detail. However, it is not clear if the physical aspect alone boosts your brain or if a combination of other factors — like the mental challenge of the activity, the frequency you do it, and the desire to improve.

How to Train Your Brain for Success: 7 Mind Training Techniques

1. Single-Task

These days many people rarely do just one thing at a time: Have you ever watched TV while browsing social media, emailed someone while getting your morning coffee, or read a book while listening to music?

Here’s the thing: Multi-tasking, skim-reading, and hopping from task to task may seem effective, but in reality, it’s the opposite.

“We keep loading ourselves down so we’re mentally exhausted all the time. Our battery is too worn down to really engage in deeper-level thinking.

The businessman and professor John Thornton said, “Meditation is to the mind what exercise is to the body – it warms and invigorates.”

Science has shown that mindfulness meditation helps engage new neural pathways in the brain. These pathways can improve self-observational skills and mental flexibility – two attributes that are crucial for success. 

Another study found that “brief, daily meditation enhances attention, memory, mood, and emotional regulation in non-experienced meditators.”

3.Reframe Negative Thoughts

3.Reframe Negative Thoughts

Most people think negative thoughts from time to time, but these thoughts can prevent us from achieving our goals. The Roman philosopher-emperor Marcus Aurelius knew the power of our minds and wrote in Meditations, “Our life is what our thoughts make it.”

Thankfully, you can train your brain to be positive by reframing negative thoughts whenever you notice them.

Whenever you feel low, check-in with yourself and try to identify the negative thought-loop at play. Perhaps you’re thinking something like, “who cares,” “I’ll never get this right,” “this won’t work,” or “what’s the point?”

4. Use Your Memory More

4. Use Your Memory More

It might sound obvious, but one of the best ways to train your brain is to rely on your memory more often.

For example, if you have a to-do list or shopping list, try to remember the next item before checking the list. You could also memorize your debit card numbers, friends’ phone numbers, license plates, and addresses.

Get into the habit of committing things to memory.
