Why did once romantic feelings fade? Why don’t successful people usually feel successful? Why did almost all diet plans fall short? Why do smart people often make terrible and disastrous decisions?
The Molecule of More reveals all of the above. It all depends on dopamine, a single molecular structure in the brain. This chemical substance controls your desire, imagination, impulse and creativity, and affects all aspects of our life unexpectedly.
Our bodies are controlled by “Upward” and “Down” substances. “Down” refers to the neurotransmitters that control the present, which determine our current feelings. “Upward” refers to dopamine, which determines our long-term planning, vision and future expectations.
Because of this, dopamine is not a happy molecule as many people think. It is actually a kind of desire element. While we have gained a lot, we have higher expectations and larger goals.
Dopamine allows us to take a longer view and pursue higher goals, but at the same time, it also makes people have endless desires and do not know how to meet them.
It can not only make you feel the joy of success, but also make it plain. It allows you to enter into a relationship, but it also allows the original deep feelings to be smoothed by the years. It allows you to obtain super long IQ, but it also makes you one step away from madness.
Fully understanding how this substance affects our emotions, decision-making and life can help us fully exert the potential function of our brain, improve efficiency and obtain better performance.
