The One Organ Crucial to Success in Business

Most of us strive to be successful at work or in business, but what does “success” actually mean?

Success is an imprecise, yet all-encompassing word. The dictionary defines success as “the accomplishment of an aim or purpose” or “the attainment of fame, wealth, or social status.” The latter definition, financial success or fame, is what most people associate with success. But what does success mean to you?

I’ll bet that you have tried many things to improve the outcomes of your business by taking classes, courses, workshops, and seminars. And that is wonderful! But I also bet that you may have never really thought about how success applies to your physical, mental, social, and spiritual health. You many have never deeply considered how to achieve this kind of success — or considered the one organ that is crucial to true success and happiness, whether at work or in your private life.

I am, of course, talking about your brain!

You may say: “I know about the brain. I took meditation and mindfulness classes, I do yoga, I do positive thinking and read self-development books.” And that is also great! But here is the thing: most people don’t realize that your brain influences everything you are and everything you do. Brains run the stock market, businesses, countries, and the local market. Brains run relationships (sometimes into the ground). Brains connect you with the environment and your spiritual side. Brains run…you!

The overall functioning of your brain determines the quality of your decisions, and your decisions determine your success in life and work. In every moment, in everything you do, you are changing your brain and your life – for better or the worse. fMRI studies have shown that your brain makes your decisions a very small fraction of time before you actually become aware of the fact that you made the decision. Neuroplasticity doesn’t refer to an abstract process; it refers to the fact that your brain adapts to all you do and changes itself constantly, even as you age.

Your brain is connected to mental, spiritual, social, and financial realms, and all must be in balance. One of my mentors and teachers is Dr. Daniel Amen MD, a double board-certified psychiatrist based in the United States. You may have read one of his many New York Times bestselling books like Change Your Brain, Change Your Life. He has been using SPECT imaging for over 30 years to assess brain function and behavior associated with mental illness. And here is the good news, according to Dr. Daniel Amen: “You are not stuck with the brain you have. You can make it better. And I can prove it.”

At DocChristine, we developed the Brain Power System to help Individuals optimize their brain. Visit for free training. Plus, as members of Dr. Amen’s teaching team, we are authorized to utilize Dr. Amen’s groundbreaking courses. Check them out at
