“There was a very cautious man who never laughed or played. He never risked. He never tried. He never sang or prayed and when he one day passed away, his insurance was denied. For since he never really lived, they claimed he never really died.” - Anonymous poem

In my travels today, I met a young man who appeared to be very intelligent, outgoing and very professional.

He mentioned that he was fifty years old however his years served him well, as he appeared to be at least 10-15 years younger.

I asked him how long he had been working at his current job and his reply was 2 years.

We continued our discussion and agreed that he was not unhappy however he was going nowhere fast with his life or career.

He called it dribbling.

Basically, one dribbles away for so many years but never makes a shot for the basket.

We continued our discussion and I said that he had many innate talents that have never had the opportunity of been expressed.

His reply was, “I know.” He continued by asking, “How do I change my safe zone so it doesn’t turn into regret?”

It’s called neuroplasticity.

Rewire and retrain your brain to form new connections with brain cells (neurons).

Doing this creates new pathways with new thoughts and new opportunities with accompanying results.

Check out this video, as it will explain the process of neuroplasticity.
