Dharmendra Rai explodes its vision about Mind mapping with our Chief Editor Anand Gijare
1. Pls. share something about you
I think I am a stupid person who is smart enough to realise that he is stupid ! Research again & again shows how limited our brain really is . People who are thought of as super intelligent are not as smart as they think, e.g. Newton lost money in the South Sea Bubble . Steven Spielberg lost money to Bernie Madoff . Amitabh Bachchan went bankrupt – the list is endless . Till my last breath I want to understand as much as I can about how the brain functions in terms of learning , memory , creativity , influence , intelligence, productivity & a few other things . For more details please see my biography http://mindmapstrainer.com/
2. Why MindMap
Roger Sperry won a Nobel Prize for proving whole brain thinking in 1981 . After that hundreds of books were written, bought , read , understood, memorised but NEVER implemented !
Because there was no simple & fun way to use the whole brain until mind maps came along. Today mind maps are so popular that Google yields 724 MILLION search results for mind map ! A mind map is a thinking tool that makes doing anything easier whether it is drawing a Trillion Dollar business strategy by a Fortune 500 company or mastering a nursery rhyme by a 6 year old .
One of the greatest benefits of mind maps is better creativity . Creativity is a must today because all routine jobs will be eaten up by machines . It is amazing how billions of people including country & company heads have not got the memo . Creativity is a difficult process because we are hard wired to make patterns so we can learn to do something without conscious awareness E g think of the first time you tried to drive a car .
It was a terrible time ! You felt that you would NEVER learn You wondered how other people can do something so complex like having a 360 degree understanding of who is around you , use your hands carefully , juggle with your feet on the pedals et al However when you drive a car for the 100 th time most processes happen automatically .
That is because the brain makes patterns so things become automatic For creativity you have to push your brain out of its rut . That is why it is very difficult, needs tools & a lot of hard work . Tools like mind maps have proved to be a huge boost
3. You are trained by some of the most successful international coaches, how it made a difference in you
One of the reasons I gave up my high paying , cushy corporate job was so I could emulate the lifestyles of these gurus of mine like Tony Buzan, Anthony Robbins, Marshall Goldsmith , Jack Canfield, Edward de Bono, BKS Iyengar et al
Here is what living their kind of life involves
a ) Very hard work because there is no paycheque coming in every month
b ) Lot of emphasis on learning , reading & attending seminars
c ) Excellent remuneration once established
d ) Control over one’s time leading to better relationships , better mental & physical health
e ) Never retiring . Working till your last day
What more can a person desire ?
4. What are the three things you can change in an individual and in a corporate team
Most people are too busy to understand what skills are going to make a huge difference in their lives & how to acquire those sills
I think I am able to impress upon smart people that they need to take their brains very very seriously & give them practical tips to get benefits IMMEDIATELY after the seminar
I think I have succeeded in making millions of people understand that their intuition is double edged sword & reading & attending seminars is a must – no matter how smart you are or how accomplished or senior you are
