what? From the stimulation of the reward circuit and dopamine.
So, what do we mean when we say that a person is “full of passion” and “full of energy”? It means that he has a good reward loop feedback loop that can continuously stimulate dopamine, provide him with motivation, stimulate and push him to continue to act. This is the physiological basis for him to constantly “change” and “grow”.
What does this have to do with openness? In fact: an important source of dopamine is to explore the external world and obtain fresh stimulation.
Whether it is going to an unfamiliar place, doing something novel, learning a skill by hand, or making a like-minded friend… these are all activities that can stimulate the reward circuit and provide us with motivation.
When you have been in an environment for too long (realistic environment or psychological environment), you will definitely feel bored and bored, and there will be a feeling of mental exhaustion-this is your brain reminding you: you should go out for fresh air Up.
Therefore, keeping an open mind and maintaining the “15% possibility” can not only enrich our lives, but also provide energy for our practical actions.
It will be an inexhaustible source of your energy and enthusiasm.
Finally, a few words.
Romain Roland has a famous saying, “There is only one kind of true heroism in the world, that is, after you recognize the truth of life, you still love it.”
No life is easy. Life is like walking a tightrope, carrying everyone’s own pressure and load, maintaining a balance in internal direction and external intervention, and maintaining a balance in rational guidance and instinctive manipulation.
But we are still moving forward, fearful and cautious, step by step, forward.
The long, crooked footprints we have walked through are the meaning of life.
Existence is meaningless, existence is meaning.
