WOW...As we all pushed to excel on this Neuroscience practical...I left the exam last week feeling pretty good...I Thought I absorbed as much information about Basal Ganglia, Diencephalon, Cerebrellum, Motor Systems, CNS Blood Supply, NeuroPharm, etc, etc....to answer any questions thrown my way on the practical...Results should be out today....All in all, I must keep pushing forward. I can not let one ocassion on this journey paralysis my progress to the next phase.
We have three weeks until our first mini exam and first gross anatomy practical for the semester....Yes, they are one day apart....We just started Endocrine yesterday..So, I know the time is going to fly by...The major task in medical school is managing your time. Being able to take in more information, while you review the past 4 weeks of information as well. We learned in our class on Memory, repetition is the way to get information stored into our Long Term Memory: Long Term Potentiation, the long lasting enhancement in signal transmission between neurons = informatino stored into memory banks. So, coming up with a schedule to reveiw weekly (sometimes multiply times within the week) all the material is key to success.
It's quit interesting how we have some much control over the things most feel that have no control over. It has been scientifically proven that we can potentiate our gene expression by our thoughts. I learned that in undergrad in my cell biology class. And now, Im learning that we can increase our capacity to handle complex information or store more information, through our thoughts by repetition. Isn't that what the scriptures state, "whatsoever a man thinks, so is he." Proverbs 23:7
So, this all boils down to YOU. What do you want? How far are you willing to go? How bad do you wanted it? How many opportunies are you going to let slip by you? How many excuses can you come up with why you CAN'T do it, NOW? As the late Rev. Ike says, "GET YOUR BUT out of the way."
The majority of us can accomplish our dreams and goals, etc in life through STRONG PURSUIT....Set your mind, thoughts, beliefs and energy towards the course in life you want and pursue it. Go for it...It's yours...I see it...Do you?
Now, go live your dreams....
