“The earlier you take steps to keep your brain strong, the longer you’ll delay any signs of decline….  One of the best ways to learn and keep your mind sharp is with financial literacy….  When we learn and use financial education, we use different parts of our brains. Learning the material uses regions in the temporal parietal area…. What they found was that the more financially literate a person, the stronger the connections.

Reading is an excellent way to build up our brain strength. It engages several parts of the brain at once, making stronger connections. That, in turn, helps you sharpen your decision-making process.” -Dr. David Eifrig

“Confession: I care what people think of me. I care too much! So much ‘self-help’ is about not caring what people think of you. Blaze your own path! Go the road less traveled! Be a unique voice! But my brain rebels against that. I want to be liked. When I was a kid I was very unpopular. It’s hard to get rid of the need to be popular.” -James Altucher

“You’re never going to master something unless you understand this… the brain learns much better when we’re emotionally engaged, when we want to learn, when we’re motivated.” -Robert Greene

“If you do the same thing every day, your brain gets used to it. Then the tenth time you do it (the hundredth time) your brain doesn’t even realize it’s doing it.  The more new things that hit your brain (the less habits), the smarter you get.” -James Altucher

“If you do the same thing every day, your brain gets used to it.  Then the tenth time you do it (the hundredth time) your brain doesn’t even realize it’s doing it.  That’s why people who work the same 9–5 job for 40 years feel like ‘the years went by so quick!’” –James Altucher

The brain is designed to learn. We learn much better when we are emotionally engaged, when we want to learn, when we are motivated, when we feel the need to learn.” -Robert Greene
