When you use your ungoverned mind, you’ll find yourself reacting without thinking.
The subcortical brain, which includes the amygdala, gives rise to your ungoverned mind. It’s the lower functioning part of your brain also known as “System 1 Thinking.”
Its value is in fight or flight, high-stress situations where your ability to react without thinking can make the difference between life and death.
Your subcortical brain gives rise to your polarized emotions and those emotions result in you either being attracted towards that which you perceive supports you or repelled from whatever you perceive will challenge you. Any polarized emotions will result in you reacting away or toward without thinking, without governance.
When you use your governed mind, you’ll find yourself thinking first, then acting.
The prefrontal cortex gives rise to the governed mind. It’s the higher functioning part of your brain also known as “System 2 Thinking.”
Its value is for life mastery, where objective thinking gives you the edge and thinking before acting gives you the advantage. This part of your brain is responsible for strategic, balanced thinking, foresight, inspiration, creativity, genius, innovation and vision.
System 2 Thinking gives you the greatest resilience and adaptability. When developed, it gives you your greatest executive function, EQ, IQ and mindfulness.
It’s the seat of your most authentic self. The source of your greatest leadership, influence, self-worth, and power. And it’s a part of your brain that you can develop thanks to the neuroplasticity of your brain.
So it’s a choice. Which part of your brain do you choose to use?
