Thoughts to become a behavior

We are what we think we are. Scientific data shows a forced habit becomes a behavior as we hard wire in our Neural networks.This is easily done before the 6th birthday and takes 5-6 months to change a behavior laterage groups. All behaviors are related to thoughts about the self in relationship to the proximal environment. Anger is not out side the body, but is a projection of individual,s thought process and bias against a circumstance or individual. Sadness is also a thought process. There is nothing outside the individual. So is happiness. All thoughts trigger or not trigger a brain network to release or release too much of a chemical that creates a brain activity. Happy thoughts naturally are from the midbrain Hippocampus to frontal lobe connections through a chemical pathway with crossing and communication between right and Left brains. Memory is better with the midbrain relaxation. So does the attention span gets better with a happy child, who is internally relaxed in the Hippocampal Gyrus. Positive thoughts will lead to positive responses from the brain. Fear, anxiety, neurosis, anger will lead to scarring of the brain cells and cognitive under performance secondary to this scarring. Adrenaline, Nor Adrenaline and Cortisol, not only affect the Blood vessels, stomach & heart, but cause significant self rejection, and cognitive delays by scarring teh brain cells. Perceptions and thoughts are very importan and should be positive and motivaet teh person to succeed. This can be imparted only by teh primary care takers, who can nurture those brain cells and teh networks. The signals that go to teh 5 senses should be happy and nurturing type.
