Scientifically Healthier In Mind and Body

It is well-recognized in science that there exists an incontrovertible link between our physiological matter including our brain (body), and our psychological self (mind). A simpler way to put this is that our body and our mind are undeniably linked. This theory has been proven through abundant research and experimentation. Within the field of Science, there are really three different types of evidence. The primary types of evidence in Science are:

1. Empirical Evidence.

This is evidence that has been tried through experimentation to the point that a Scientist can produce a Theory, notating the probability of truth within the experimentation. Publishing his Theory in some manner, allows other Scientists, with different biases and in different locations, to test the theory for accuracy. Empirical Evidence is what is produced when the tests of the theory recurrently produce the exact same re-sult. Empirical Evidence can lead to an Empirical Law or Scientific Law.

2. Logical Evidence

This is evidence that would suggest that a theory is rational, reasonable, sound, and is logical because of some-thing we generally refer to as common sense. Logical evidence could exist when a thing has been proven to be “tried and true,” but not scientifically-proven.

3. Anecdotal Evidence.

This is evidence that consists of documented, or undocumented, stories or legends passed along by some-one who is giving personal testimony of an occurrence, by someone who is passing along a story he/she has heard or has read about. Most conspiracy theories fall into this type of evidence. This does not make them false; however, the truth of the matter remains unproven.

In my consulting, I base my scientific beliefs on empirical evidence, but in my communication of solving problems, I find value in all three types of evidence. If I were to express myself to my Clients based on empirical evidence solely, my consultations could be as dry as monotone ramblings de-tailing the Classical Dynamics of Rigid Bodies. Humans are thinkers, and the pow-er of those thoughts can spawn reactive behavior within our physical selves. Henry Ford once said, “Whether you think you can, or you think you can’t – you’re right.” You could easily replace words with negative connotations in your thoughts. For example, substituting winner for loser, success for failure, pretty for ugly, or courageous for cowardly. Our minds are so extremely powerful, that we will become what we think we are.

Over my life, I have had the good fortune to meet and learn from some of the all-time great inspirational teachers. Some of those whom I place in that category made millions of dollars through seminars, books, and CDs; yet others who have enriched my life in a powerful and positive way never earned a penny from their teachings, nor probably knew they had prompted a change in my life. As I have matured, it has behooved me to give those I cred-it with teaching such lessons to me, my thanks and admiration. However, in my case, by the time I made such rev-elations, some of my finest Mentors were no longer afoot.

Living brings about change. It is easy to be happy during times of plenty, but so much more challenging when facing adversities. I believe and teach that we can learn from something I refer to as guided focus, which utilizes a powerful strategy for the betterment of performance through a collective effort of our mind and body. The science behind guided focus is empirical evidence that we can make our body better through the power of the mind; and equally, we can make our mind better through the power of the body.
