And How You Can Make It Your Superpower…
We have all heard of the popular neurotransmitter that everyone is talking about (including myself)…yep, you guessed it, dopamine…
…And rightfully so. This chemical means serious business!
It makes sure we get stuff done, it focusses us on our goals and keeps us motivated and inspired! It also keeps us constantly searching for that next hit.
So who likes to do lists…? Yeah, me too!
That satisfying feeling you get when you cross things off your list…yep you guessed it again, dopamine.
In the right balance dopamine can be extremely beneficial to our lives, but dopamine has a dark side that most aren’t talking about…
Did you know some of the other things that release dopamine include, alcohol, sex, nicotine, gambling, and even your cell phone!
If unbalanced, dopamine is extremely dangerous and it’s destructive!
This is because dopamine is highly, highly addictive.
It’s no wonder that this chemical can lead us into a false sense of achievement, going about our day creating and ticking off the items on our to do lists, constantly chasing that next hit of dopamine, but never progressing too far forward.
Tony Robbins explains ‘most people mistake movement for achievement.’ Yep, once again, dopamine is the culprit.
So what do we do?
We have to SHIFT our focus and become obsessed with outcomes instead of activities.
We must be more intentional with our movements to ensure they are bringing us closer to the outcomes we desire.
This way we can use dopamine to our advantage and not let it trick us into thinking we are progressing forward.
So now we know how powerful dopamine really is…use dopamine as your superpower and make it your advantage over your competitors!
