Super Thinking Creates Super Agers

by | Apr 22, 2014 | Archives

You can use Super Thinking tactics to become a “Super Ager”, a person whose  brain and memory is younger than their age.

We invite you to join us in the Blue Ridge this summer to share the peace, quiet and beauty and learn more about how Super Thinking can use simplicity to bring everlasting wealth in our complex world.

Learn how to keep pace, get ahead, enjoy our modern society, but stop the world from moving too fast.  Learn how to keep up, without having such a fast paced life we turn into machines.  Learn how to find time for God, family, charity, and friends.

The ultimate answers of everlasting abundance lay within.

Investing and business are not normally considered an emotional event.  Yet my 46 years of global business experience and numerous scientific studies suggest that success and failure are not determined by external events.  This fact is summed up in a quote from Sir Arthur Keith, about the battles of WWII, “The course of human history is not determined by what happens in the skies, but by what takes place in our hearts”.

We can become “Super Agers”  from our hearts by controlling what happens in our brain.

A CBS.com article entitled “Scientists calling all “super agers” for brain study” tells how “Super Agers” are men and women who have brains and memories far younger than their age.

Researchers have been studying this rare group to help protect others from memory loss and found tantalizing information about how  these “Super Agers” have such good memories.

One discovery uncovered is that deep within the brain of “Super Agers”, a small region called the “anterior cingulate”, important for attention, is bigger than even those who are 20 and 30 years younger.

The studies also found that not just the brain of super agers is different.  They also have more energy and share a positive, inquisitive outlook.  Research found that being “cognitively active and socially engaged” is important.

An example is Edith Stern who at 92 years, is vibrant and helpful to most of the residents at her assisted living home, even though she lost most of her family in the Holocaust.

Stern says,  “I am young – inside. And I think that’s the difference”.

Helping others is important to her youthfulness.

She says: “When you get old, people are mainly interested in themselves. They talk about the doctor, what hurts,” she said. “You are not so important that you just concentrate on yourself. You have to think about other people.”

Scientific studies support the idea that meditation and music help the use of the anterior cingulate.

One study referenced at the National Institute of Health entitled “Short-term meditation induces white matter changes in the anterior cingulate” says:   The anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) is part of a network implicated in the development of self-regulation and whose connectivity changes dramatically in development.  In previous studies we showed that 3 h of mental training, based on traditional Chinese medicine (integrative body–mind training, IBMT), increases ACC activity and improves self-regulation.  We here report that 11 h of IBMT increases fractional anisotropy (FA), an index indicating the integrity and efficiency of white matter in the corona radiata, an important white-matter tract connecting the ACC to other structures. Thus IBMT could provide a means for improving self-regulation and perhaps reducing or preventing various mental disorders.

Music strengthens the use of the anterior cingulate cortex as well.

A study at SFU.edu entitled “Passive music listening spontaneously engages limbic and paralimbic systems” showed that listening to certain types of music activated the affective division of the anterior cingulate cortex.

We hold the keys to success inside and can insert these keys with Super Thinking.

Learn the art of Super Thinking.  This talent helps you break loose from the materialistic social view that has created crime, corruption, greed, fear and stress.  You are more than your mind.  You gain use of your full potential when you integrate the process of making and using wealth with fulfillment and service in a pinnacle career.
