Brains run the world. They run the stock market and the local market. Brain’s run huge corporations and mom and pop shops down the street. Brains run governments, schools, churches and families. Your brain runs you. Yet, most people rarely think about their brains which is a huge mistake, because the brain is involved in everything we do, including how we think, feel, act and get along with others. When your brain works right, you work right, and when your brain is troubled you are much more likely to have trouble in your life.
