What has cutting-edge brain science proven about how dopamine control influences our motivation and activeness?
It’s all about immediacy, frequency, continuation, decisiveness, and being up for the challenge.
How are leading athletes, entrepreneurs, doctors, and developers able to achieve all of these? The answer is dopamine, the pleasure-providing chemical in the brain. Proper dopamine control can improve motivation and strength. The secret to turning your lazy brain into a motivated brain lies in controlling dopamine levels. In this book, a neurosurgeon provides an explanation backed by leading brain science.
This book is for those who can’t “get up and go,” those who can’t finish what they’ve started, and those who hesitate to take up a new challenge.
