Our Mind Map
In our brain, we build and constantly update a personal model of ourselves and our world
A Mind Map that closely represents reality is a powerful ally in our quest for a meaningful and rich life
“Mind Map” is Good Wolf’s term for the personal model of reality – of us and our bodies, of the external world, and of our engagement with the external world – that we build and constantly revise in our brains. Our Mind Map contains everything we believe – about who we are and our predictions of how our actions will impact ourselves and the world. We continually construct our Mind Map, beginning the moment we are born, out of our experiences, dreams, fears, and hopes, the stories we hear and read, and our interactions with others.
A Mind Map that closely represents reality is a powerful ally in our quest for a meaningful and rich life filled with connections to others and contributions to society. Conversely, an inaccurate Mind Map can cause harm to oneself and to others, making us feel confused, anxious, or unnecessarily threatened. The hopeful news is that, with time and intent, and because of the plasticity of our brains, we can correct inaccurate, dangerous Mind Maps.
How do we identify glitches in our Mind Map and make important corrections? Join us at Good Wolf to better understand how to build a healthy Mind Map and have a better life!
