The neurons that have the most dominant reinforcement pattern are the ones that activate automatically, which is why most folks keep achieving the same results over and over again. According to the latest brain research, it takes between 66 days and 365 days to change a neural pattern that has become a habit. That’s why it’s key to be deliberate about training your brain so you can create new subconscious patterns. John’s Exceptional Life Blueprint can help you give your brain the instruction you want it to achieve. John uses it himself every year to set his own goals.   Episode Play-By-Play [1:43] John Assaraf’s career briefing [3:12] Listener shout-out [6:20] How John became an expert in neuroscience [8:05] The importance of the mind-body connection [9:46] John’s healing affirmation [12:01] What is Innercise and how does it work?
