Follow up to our most popular epi, a devoted listener asks, "how it [childhood beliefs] could be tied in with inventing your destiny?" Childhood rules your destiny by the decisions you make early on that become imprinted and deeply ingrained into your subconscious mind. These beliefs become your "blueprint" for life. Our brain's capacity for learning is greatest at age 4, especially for languages, which is exactly how the mind is programmed---through language. "By age 4, for instance, the cortex begins operating at adult activity levels. By 4, a child's brain is more than twice as active as an adult's. The brain continues to consume glucose at this feverish pitch through age 10 and then slows down until age 16, when it levels off at adult values." The research shows that a young child's brain has the greatest retention capacity. "For example, foreign-language instruction is often deferred until high school, despite the fact that youngsters can learn to speak like natives -- that is, to think in the language without having to translate -- whereas teenagers or adults usually cannot. When small children learn a new language he said, "the ability to use that language is wired in the brain." Musical training is another familiar example. "By encouraging young children to learn music and practice, you're really doing them a big favor." Chugani said. Once a child has learned an instrument, he or she can stop playing, then pick up the instrument 20 years later and do much better than an adult just starting out." ~ The Riggs Institute. As, I wholehearted believe, and based on my research and case studies, all human beings' life's scripts are written and unconsciously memorized and engrained by 19 years old and under, predominantly by age 8! So for instance, because Jonah grew up in such impoverished conditions from the day he was born, he actually recalls around age 7-8 saying to himself that he didn't want his own family to grow up the same way. I remember desperately wanting to know why I was on this earth from about age 8-9. I remember so clearly wanting to understand the purpose of life, and that "there has to be a bigger reason for living than just being unhappy, working and then dying."? These thoughts became principle beliefs over time for Jonah and myself, respectively, which embedded into our subconscious mind and set precedence for our lives'. Being poor is not an option for Jonah, so his destiny was based on this belief. Living without a greater purpose was not an option for me either, and was the sole, "Soul" driving force for my life to this day! It's eerie how our earliest childhood beliefs stand the test of time, and are virtually identical to our adult beliefs when consciously examined. The BOTTOM LINE is this---when your childhood beliefs work against you, the miraculous news is that based on the brain's ability to grow until death, you have the capacity to transform your foundational disempowering beliefs allowing you to #InventYourDestiny at any point in your life. But the catch is you must consciously choose it and be willing to do the heart and mindset work to achieve #LifelongHappySuccess! Early childhood has the most retention capacity, so the thoughts and perceptions formulated in childhood become predominantly stored, embedded & encoded. Therefore, these belief systems create habitual behavioral patterns into adulthood creating an almost predictable destiny unless you interrupt the patterns and transform them...To learn more & for private mentoring information email KarenLoveLee@gmail.com or Jonah@BillyBobProducts.com respectively.
