“If knowledge is power, learning is your superpower.” – Jim Kwik
Super Brain explores the idea that through increased self-awareness and conscious intention we can teach our brain to perform at a higher level than we thought possible.
At some point in your life you’ve probably heard something along the lines of, “Did you know that we only use 10 percent of our brain power?” It may come as no surprise that this idea is false and has no scientific backing. But it is true that we are not always using all of our brain power.
Our brains are one of the most complex biological creations on Earth. Their 100 billion neurons are responsible for everything from emotion and memories to keeping you alive. They deal with all of the complexities of human life and barely even break a sweat. And here’s the thing: your brain doesn’t have a limited amount of battery. It’s constantly growing, learning, and building new pathways. So imagine if you took advantage of the brain’s amazing ability to adapt and learn and helped reshape it to maximize its power?
Here are the 3 biggest lessons:
- Once you understand how the brain works, you can harness it to supercharge yourself.
- Intuition is an important trait that might even give us the power to predict things before they happen.
- Meditation and altruism are the keys to a long and healthy life.
That is why the super brain technique of Residency Success encompasses a group of different spheres that surround the total existence of an individual which are: Nutrition, Fitness, Mind, Sentimental, Social.
Functional nutrition is the practice of considering every aspect of one’s health, diet, and overall lifestyle when giving them nutrition recommendations. In this way, functional medicine follows a systems approach to health care that takes into consideration how interrelated every part of the body is.
Within the super brain technique, food is essential for multiple functions in our body—mainly in our nervous and adrenal systems—that is why we offer tools to perform the brain diet, which multiplies and optimizes our neuronal and hormonal functions, facilitating the stability of our body, mind, and spirit axis.

Functional training has a purpose and translates to an activity beyond your workout.
“The main word here is function. Function is purpose. So functional training is just training that has a purpose.”
That purpose can be related to getting better at everyday activities—like walking, squatting to pick up something heavy, pushing a revolving door, or getting in and out of a chair—or preparing to compete in a sport, like soccer, football, or tennis. A functional workout is simply one that strengthens you in a particular way that directly translates to an activity outside the weight room. For most people, the practical application of functional training is to make daily activities easier to perform. Examples:
- Functional training TRX
- Super Brain yoga
- Fitness and lifting
- Self Defense
Your mood and your mental health affect every aspect of your life, from how you feel about yourself to your relationships with others and your physical health. There’s a strong link between good mental health and good physical health, and vice versa. In the other direction, depression and other mental health issues can contribute to digestive disorders, trouble sleeping, lack of energy, heart disease, and other health issues.
There are many ways to keep your mind and mood in optimal shape. Exercise, healthy eating, and stress reduction techniques like meditation or mindfulness can keep your brain—and your body—in tip-top shape.
When mood and mental health slip, doing something about it as early as possible can keep the change from getting worse or becoming permanent. Treating conditions like depression and anxiety improve quality of life. Learning to manage stress makes for more satisfying and productive days.

One of the things that blocks our efforts to learn about the world and the people in it is the nature of the stories we are told, come to believe, and then tell others about how things work. This shared mythology, if it is incorrect, interferes with our efforts to understand ourselves and others and ultimately leads to bad decisions in the same way as if we were explorers attempting to find their way with inadequate maps.
If we are ever to understand the world we live in and the people who inhabit it, we must develop a capacity for separating truth from sentimentality. We need to apply the same discrimination that we attempt to apply in our financial lives, namely an ability to discern value and a healthy skepticism of those whose job it is to defraud us.
We must learn to accept the ambiguity, imperfections, and uncertainty that characterize real life while avoiding the over-simplification that is the hallmark sentimentality. We must, in other words, learn to distinguish reality from illusion if we are to make good decisions about how to live and especially about whom to live with. Our happiness depends on the quality of these choices.
How people memorize emotions:
- They have a thought →triggers a memory →triggers an emotion.
- In time, the thought itself becomes a memory →emotion.
- In time, the emotion is memorized.
Subconscious: most physical and mental processes that take place below conscious awareness. Aka the Autonomic Nervous System (we don’t think consciously about breathing, heart beating, etc)
Why it’s hard to change: The mind is in the present, but the subconscious body-mind is in the past, thanks to conditioned responses (automatic responses produced via the ANS)

As we begin to feel the way we are thinking…we begin to think the way we are feeling. Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself by Joe Dispenza
The biggest mistake most people make in life is not setting goals high enough. Taking massive action is the only way to fulfill your true potential.
If you’re kind of a private (read: mildly antisocial) person, then you know the pain and agony that is a party, get-together, or networking event. Without a doubt, you’d much rather stay home, read a good book, and remain quietly introspective. But like it or not, such events will happen. So it can help to know how to socialize when you’re an introvert.
Of course this is way easier said than done. If you’re an introvert, being social can feel like quite the insurmountable task. Where other people seem to gain energy from parties and outings, you only seem to withstand them (at best). You might even feel totally drained afterward, as if you had just been through some sort of horrible experience (instead of something lighthearted and fun). This is the nature of introversion.
You should set targets for yourself that are 10X greater than what you believe you can achieve and you should take actions that are 10X greater than what you believe are necessary to achieve your goals.
- Operating at activity levels far beyond the normal is 10X action and execution. It will take you far.
- Set targets that are 10X the goals you would ever dream of.
- Your thoughts and actions are the reason you are where you are right now.
- In order to go farther than you ever thought possible you must both think and act at levels 10X beyond the norm.
- Why keep working once you have achieved a certain financial level of success? Because you can be happy while accomplishing things, not while resting and doing nothing. If you loved your wife and kids yesterday, should you just stop at that? Or should you build upon it? Same way with your work and legacy.
- Limiting the amount of success you desire is a violation of the 10X Rule.
- The 10X Rule: You must set targets for yourself that are 10X more than what you think you want and then take 10X the action you think is required to get there.
