Brain Zone's Philosophy

Brain Zone believes that every individual is a unique composite of his brain, body, and soul. Each of these impacts the others, and all three must be strengthened for optimal living. However, ultimately, it is the brain that has the final say on what individuals do with their lives; the decisions they make; how they respond to difficulty; their emotions and how they deal with them; the quality of their health; their behavior and interactions; their productivity and achievements; and their level of happiness. The brain is a key component to every area in life.

In today's world, brainpower is the real basis of competitive advantage! Brainpower has become the true measure of economic (and life) potential."

How Brain Zone ​Looks at IQ

IQ is short for ​Intelligence Quotient. IQ tests measure "Academic Intelligence".  However, IQ tests don't measure "street smarts", creativity, imagination and innovation—all of which contribute to a person’s success (or lack of) in life. Intelligence is the aptitude to acquire and apply knowledge and skills.

Brain Zone Enhances the Five Intelligences

Intelligence isn't limited to academic intelligence. There are five intelligences. Academic Intelligence can help an individual excel in school, and other similar situations. However, to excel in life, in addition to academic intelligence, a person also needs emotional, social, self, and life intelligences:

  • Academic Intelligence— the ability to do well in school and similar situations.
  • Emotional Intelligence— intelligence related to emotional regulation, perseverance, handling emotions in a positive way, resilience, inner strength, and so forth.
  • Social Intelligence— possessing the knowledge and skills for positive social interactions and relationships.
  • Self-Intelligence— a high level of self-awareness, self-esteem, confidence, self-management, self-motivation; and the ability to achieve one's greatest possibilities in life.
  • Life Intelligence— the knowledge and skills for being successful in life—goal setting and achieving, planning ahead, common sense, "street smarts", understanding how life works, and the ability to make the most of life.

Brain Zone and Success

Brain Zone views success as: “Accomplishing those things that lead to progress, contribution, fulfillment, and joy in life".  Brain Zone programs implement the elements needed for individuals to achieve success.

​How the Brain Can Be Enhanced

It was long believed that that the human brain was hardwired and could not be changed. However, scientific discovery has found that the brain can be improved through neurogenesis (birth of new brain cells) and neuroplasticity (the brain’s ability to rewire itself and form new neural connections).

Every man, if he so desires, can become the sculptor of his own brain."
—Santiago Ramon y Cajal, Neuroscientist

Rarely do we find men who willingly engage in hard, solid thinking. There is an almost universal quest for easy answers and half-baked solutions. Nothing pains some people more than having to think."
