Detoxing Yourself

  • It is possible to (literally) change your mind
  • You can re-wire your brain if you really want to
  • We consume toxins as the salience tends to be stronger than our self-control
  • However, the neo-cortex of our brain always gives us the power to choose
  • We can re-wire our brain through making resolutions; and crucially, by following through with them
  • Our mind grows through self-control
  • Every time we opt for abstinence over salience, our mind becomes stronger
  • Every personal victory has an accumulative effect
  • Every time we succumb to salience, our mind becomes weaker and we become more reliant on that toxin
  • Will-power and persistence will inevitably result in success
  • We need to practice will-power as often as we can
