An open-minded, committed, flexible, courageous, curious and optimistic mental attitude will produce a body that is physically more healthy and freed from stress, and a mind which is more alert and capable of dealing with the constant 'intelligence tests' that day to day living requires.
Initial results in this area show that the more genius-compatible of these two attitudes may actually encourage the growth of more sophisticated and intricate 'wiring' between brain cells. Such a general mental attitude has also been found to be identical to that which characterises older people who may be described as successful. A positive mental attitude will greatly contribute to a longer and healthier life.
