The mind is a terrible thing to waste. The world has changed at lightning speed over the last two decades. As a result, most of us are living our lives in a frantic blur of incessant emails, social media engagement, text messages as well as an over-abundance of multi-tasking – which leaves our minds in a state of low concentration, high stress and fragmented attention. Our minds are wasting away in this damaging environment which has become a normal way of life for the majority of people. Lost, Found & Rewired will give you the tools you need to shut off that distracting mind chatter, rewire your brains so you can get back to feeling calm, happy, purposeful, connected and joyful. When you understand how your brain has evolved, then you will be able to learn how to re-wire it and reap the endless benefits.

Here’s some of what you’ll discover in this exceptional book: How your brain conserves energy so it can survive and makes decisions on automatic pilot that may not be in your best interest Why your brain has something in it called a “negativity bias” which causes you to attract the bad and repel the good How negative experiences in your life become neural pathways in your brain, requiring re-wiring to replace the harmful effects Understanding that a big part of your brain isn’t full developed and as a result, is causing chaos in your life How the fight or flight response dictates your life if you aren’t aware of it Why a few moments of intentional stillness a day can have a huge impact in your life Understanding that you have an Inner Caveman lurking around your mind and ways you can get him under control Dozens of Mind Tools that will raise your happiness levels and reduce your anxiety levels that you can add to your daily life How to identify and remove the biggest stressors in your life Ways to handle the daily overload in our lives How to shift from the negative to the positive – even though your brain doesn’t want you to The emotional, mental, spiritual and physical benefits of mindfulness Lost, Found & ReWired is filled with real stories, exercises, the latest research studies and tools to help take you from frazzled and fragmented to cool and calm!

The Writestream Welcomes Entrepreneur Jefferson Keith Langley, ‘The Human Architect’

The Writestream Welcomes Entrepreneur Jefferson Keith Langley, ‘The Human Architect’

I’m excited to welcome my friend, accomplished athlete, entrepreneur and Writestream Radio host Jefferson Keith Langley to The Writestream on Wednesday, July 26 at 11 AM Eastern, just ahead of his one-year Writestream Radio anniversary. Late last summer, Donna Lyons told me Jefferson had an interest in hosting his own show, which became The Formula: What Is It? I’m grateful for his contributions to the network, which include highlighting entrepreneurs in various phases of their respective journeys to inform and inspire others. It’s an excellent broadcast for anyone seeking motivation from real people who have shared similar struggles and triumphs in the business world.

Jefferson has an impressive (and long!) bio, which we will discuss in full during our time together on Wednesday. Here’s a bit about his background:

Jefferson Keith Langley, of Latin, Native American Indian, and Anglo heritage, had the winning mindset from a young age when he excelled in sports. He captained numerous sports teams to championships at top club levels and high school. This gave him an essential foundation for success and achievement while following his passions. After leaving college early, he moved Los Angeles from Texas at 19, where he got a contract to go pro for an L.A.-based team called L.A. Italia, which pays tribute to his elite training at a high level. Jefferson began his twenty-year career in entertainment, TV and media working as an assistant for numerous top people and companies. He co-founded a boutique production and finance company with an investor from Silicon Valley where he was President of Development and Production for over two years, handling day-to-day operations, business affairs strategies to diversify the company portfolio, optioning material, negotiating deals, leading writer meetings, while managing, developing and raising funds for the slate of projects. He has been hired by film financiers to consult and write materials for fantasy thrillers and comedies as well.

Jefferson expanded his spectrum and became a top adviser/consultant across all industries. His unique, cutting-edge, one-of-a-kind techniques and innovative applications continue to garner rave reviews from his colleagues and clients through their referrals and recommendations. Jefferson’s knack for seeing to the core of things, coming up with innovative solutions, and providing guidance and execution all the way through to reaching the finish line garnered him the personal title, THE HUMAN ARCHITECT.

Discover more about Jefferson on his LinkedIn profile and on the Writestream Radio Guest Hosts Page.
