Brain Reset: Leading Psychologist Dr. Adrian Low is on a Mega Mission!
Today we’d like to introduce you to Dr. Adrian Low.
It’s an honor to speak with you today. Why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. How did you get to where you are today?
My name is Dr. Adrian Low, the President of the Hong Kong Association of Psychology. I’ve attained a Doctor of Clinical and Industrial Organizational Psychology here in the USA. I am also a Chartered Psychologist from the British Psychological Society. I have been pursuing psychology for over ten years. Why do I pursue Psychology? You see, I used to do semi-professional Badminton when I was a teenager. However, I wasn’t able to make a breakthrough in the sports profession. I found out that having a solid psychological component is essential for any successful sports player. Therefore, I pursued psychology. Later on, I discovered that without psychological health, there is no true health. Dr. Brock Chisholm, the first Director General of the World Health Organization made this statement too. Today, I am the founder of Human Reset Academy. One of the initiatives of Human Reset Academy is to reset people’s brains. For the past twenty years, if you look at the world, there are so many people looking very unhappy and emotionally down. Lots of stress stemming from the workplace, projects and relational tensions. Even when people are materialistically satisfied, they still seem to be unhappy. On the contrarily, when we look at the young children, they are simple-hearted, authentically happy and healthy. Hence, I am on a mission to reset people’s lives, restoring one person to that of a child, so to speak.
I’m sure your success has not come easily. What challenges have you had to overcome along the way?
When I was 14-years-old, I was the Singapore National Junior Singles Champion. I could vividly remember how I lost to my opponent two years before in another tournament. I was thrashed 15-0 by him. I was devastated, disappointed and traumatized with the loss. I chose to stick with the training plan and it ultimately ended in a sweet revenge. In retrospect, whether it is sports or anything we pursue in life, we are bound to face different kinds of adversity. Here is the thing: Adversity can make you strong and resilient, or it can break you, the choice is yours. I’m glad that I’ve chose the former. Although I didn’t take badminton to the next level by becoming a professional athlete, I instilled the exact same grit, perseverance, and the ability to cope with emotional challenges into my academic endeavours. In 2018, I have completed my doctoral research in a Big Corporation in Hong Kong and I was one of the pioneers to bringing biofeedback devices into the Corporation for psychological research. Since then, I’ve appeared in all major local media networks in Hong Kong with the aim to achieve EPS: Enhance Human Potential , Prevent Maladaptive Psychological Behaviors, Stop Mental Health Stigma.
Let’s talk about the work you do. What do you specialize in and why should someone work with you over the competition?
I am on a mission to reset people’s brains. I am still learning and so far I have been learning from the best practitioners, scientists in the world. I believe that we can reset people’s brain in a systematic way. A depressed person has systematically arrived to a depressed state over time. Likewise, to restore the depressed person, it can be systematically reversed too. To reverse the process, we need to do so in four main segments: Biological, Environmental-Social, Psychological and Spiritual. For the biological, there is a 12-step process to restore a person to optimal health. Medical professionals would agree that the least toxic method is to be used. Supplements are definitely one of the least toxic methods. Hence, I have created BrainReset.Store which offers premium supplements that have been lab-tested and created under a FDA-registered facility. Together with my world-class team of healthcare professionals, we have systematically deployed assessment tools that can help our clients to know exactly what supplements to take or the necessary steps needed to restore to their child-like form. There is no one size fits all method. Every individual are coming from different context and background. We treat individuals differently throughout the restorative process. For instance, supplements recommended to one client may not be applicable to another.
What’s your best piece of advice for readers who desire to find success in their life?
Here is the thing: Adversity can make you strong and resilient, or it can break you, the choice is yours. I’m glad that I’ve chose the former. Although I didn’t take badminton to the next level by becoming a professional athlete, I instilled the exact same grit, perseverance, and the ability to cope with emotional challenges into my academic endeavours. In 2018, I have not only graduated with a Doctor of Psychology, but I also won the President’s Award for Doctoral Project Excellence in my University.
Speaking of success, what does the word mean to you?
Successful people would tell you that “Success breeds success”. To me, the first major success may well be the most challenging. In my experience, success requires certain elements of failing. In fact, one of my Psychologist Friend and bestselling author Dr. Elia Gourgouris would say that there is no failing, only learning. Hence, it’s either Win or Learn. We are always learning. If we aren’t learning, we are dead. Develop a champion mindset. A champion mindset always look at the big picture. Never say you can’t do it, but I can do it no matter what it takes. There needs to be a certain amount of craziness too especially when others say that you can’t do something, but I will prove them wrong! As a psychologist, I would further extend the notion of success into considering success in all four areas of Biological, Environmental-Social, Psychological and Spiritual.
What’s next for you?
As an Entrepreneur and a Psychologist, I often look up to Bruce Lee as my role model. His famous statement “Be Water, My friend” was one of the most inspirational and important statement ever made. Maintaining a stance of “Fluidity of Self” is vital towards success. Together with my team, we’ll create a series of Bruce Lee Psychological Courses. Look out for it! I’m sure you’ll love it! People often ask me what psychology would look like in ten years, hence I would see myself as the Elon Musk of psychology. I have the next ten years of how psychology would look like well-planned. I’ll reveal this ten year plan when the time comes. I invite you to join me on this ten year mission.I would see myself as the Elon Musk of psychology.
