commitment. Hopefully, some of the strategies will become habitua l over time and not a
huge effort.
But other psychologists are more skeptical. Some simply doubt that personality is
that flexible or that individuals can or should change their habitual coping styles. They
say ―If you‘re a pessimist, who really thinks through in detail what might go wrong, you
can hardly remain happy for a long time even if you make an effort.‖
Role of Brain‘s Chemistry
Human beings were designed by the Creator such that all functioned the same
way. A good analogy is the hardware of a computer. What most individuals don‘t realize
is that the power of our brain or computer‘s hardware varies according to the chemistry
of our brain. It is critical to conceptually understand that our brain actually secretes
chemicals corresponding to our positive and negative thoughts. The resulting chemistry
of our brain‘s cranial fluid influences all of our natural abilities and functions. This, in
turn, determines how well we perform in everything we do because our brain is like a
powerful computer. The power and efficiency of our wonderful personal computer can be
increased dramatically by optimizing the chemistry of our brain‘s cranial fluid. The
mathematic ian john von Neumann once calculated that the human brain could store up to
280 quintillion (280 multiplied by ten raised to18 zeros) bits (binary digits). Brain is
estimated to function at the rate of ten thousand times the latest fastest computer.
Contrary to expectation, genius children need not show it in the ir school records.
Many come out as difficult, moody, average and so on. Even Einstein was slow,
particularly with languages. He attributed his discovery of the Theory of Relativity to his
belief that one could stimulate ingenious thought by allowing one‘s imagination to float
freely without inhibitions. Geniuses are little more than ordinary people who have
stumbled upon some knack or technique for widening their vision or channel of attention
thus making subtle conversion of even unconscious perceptions to practically feasible
reality. With few exceptions, the great discoveries in science have been made through
intuitive experiments.
