"Thoughts for the 99% (and the 1% as Well)" by New World Library publisher Marc Allen
By Samy AbulEla

Einstein was not only a math genius; he had tremendous insight into the everyday problems of our lives and our world as well, insight so brilliant that it can show us where to find the answers to a huge number of our problems:

Significant problems cannot be solved
on the same level of thinking
that created the problems.

— Albert Einstein

"7 Tenets of Neuroplasticity" by guest blogger Kelly Howell
By Samy AbulEla

When I first heard of the science of neuroplasticity, the word struck me as a rather odd way to describe the brain. How could the brain be plastic? But as I delved into the sea of astonishing research, I realized that scientists refer to plastic as a malleable substance that can be stretched, flexed, shaped, reshaped, molded, and transformed easily. The more I researched the subject, the more proof I found that we’ve been living under the influence of false scientific beliefs — beliefs about our mental capacity to change, shape, and transform the structure, function, and ultimate potential of our brains.
