Marisa Peer is an award winning Therapist from Britain. She is also a Behavioural Expert and Author. I learned about her from her Tedx video titled 'Reach beyond your limits by training your mind'.
These are the notes I took while watching her Tedx Kings College video:
4 Things To Know About Your Mind
1) Your mind always does exactly what it thinks you want it to do

3) How you feel at all times is based on 2 things, the pictures you create in your mind and the words you use
4) Your mind loves what is familiar
