Brainblocks are the mental obstacles that keep people from achieving success, defined as setting, pursuing, and achieving a goal.
Managing the brain is the solution to preventing mental blocks from interfering with achieving your goals. And neuropsychologist Dr. Theo Tsaousides gives you the tools to improve:

   •  the seven brainblocks to success (self-doubt, procrastination, impatience, multitasking, rigidity, perfectionism, negativity)
   •  the characteristic feelings, thoughts, and actions associated with each brainblock
   •  the brain functions involved in goal-oriented action
   •  brain glitches and how they create setbacks
   •  the cost of not removing brainblocks
   •  the best strategies to remove the blocks

   •  actively search for brainblocks in your actions, thoughts, and feelings
   •  recognize and label each brainblock as soon as it is identified
   •  practice each strategy consistently until it becomes second nature
   •  track your progress toward a goal
Through these strategies you will learn to overcome these cognitive obstacles and harness the power of the brain to achieve success in any endeavor.
