When you are in a reactive mode, you do what others want to you to do or you react emotionally to events and ideas. And when you are active, you start to lead yourself but maybe you are only aware of the next few steps without any strategy. Being proactive means you have thought of your whole life and in all important aspect like health, family, relationship, money, career.

Hold regular imaginary meetings with all of your age versions like age 1,2, ... present ... 99, 100 years old of you and discuss those important topics and come to an agreement. It gives you a framework for each action of your life so you start with the big picture and create goals, projects, task for yourself to achieve them. You chunk them down and create yearly, monthly, weekly and daily action plans and routines and habits. Or at least you have clear directions based on values you hold dear.

Efficient means that you reach a result relatively quickly, cheaply or using less energy and resources. Effective means that your result is very close to your goal. But what if later you regret having that goal. Being wise means you strategically think well advance in time maybe until the end of your life or even further if you have kids and consider all the important aspects.

A training for self-management, influence and success

For most of us the way to personal and professional development is limited to increasing our knowledge, technical and marketable skills such as computer, language and communication skills.

Developing skills are essential but there is another level beyond the skill level. A level that almost everybody ignores or doesn't even know about: learning to operate our minds more effectively, upgrading our mental structures and processes.

Is multiple personality disorder, or as it is today called Dissociative identity disorder (DID)? I mean we change all the time. When we are angry, sexually aroused, relaxed, euphoric or in any other state, we believe and value different things, our priorities are very different.

And socially we are require to behave differently as we move from group every day several times. We have multiple personalities, pay different roles in different situation. It is called adaptation to the situation.

Mind optimization: Control your mind otherwise your mind controls you

Studying and applying the mind optimization method, which I described in my book "Mind Optimization" and teach in this course can help you better understand how the mind works, and how to make its components more flexible and compatible with one another to get them to work together in a more synchronised, systematised way to achieve your objectives.

The quality of our lives depends on how well we can master and harmonize our minds, maintain our bodies and health and influence the environment we live in. We cannot influence all the factors that determine our lives, but everything we are able to control is originated from our minds and results in our actions, relationships, emotional states, health, financial and career situations.

Most of the mind’s activities happen automatically, often unnoticed at the moment and we do not have much chance of influencing their result. In these moments, we virtually function as pre-programmed robots. We react to things with thought patterns our minds happen to be set on.

Zoltan Gregor: Mind Optimization

The purpose of this self-development and mind optimization course is to help you investigate and if you want, upgrade your mental models (beliefs), values, needs in those areas where you want to improve your life.

You can discover how your own mind often tricks and misleads you by quickly creating one version of reality when actually you could come up with several other versions if you were not so sure about yourself and questioned your subjective reality.

We also look at how other people, parents, friends, the education system, the media and the government program our minds just to serve their own interests. By offering a few options to choose among, they create us the illusion of freedom. By discovering how the system and the society plant beliefs and values into our minds and how they select and present the information they want us to focus on, you can start to learn how to take the control over your mind.
