She Always Wants To Improve

Bailey has a lot of success, and she still wants more. She tells Complex that she and her sister, Chloe, are always trying to improve themselves. "We have to realize we can always do better. Always grow. Constantly remind ourselves." "Give your brain new challenges. Feed it new knowledge and focus it for longer periods of time. These exercises create new and denser connections of neurons, which will make your brain more powerful. Also, ask yourself if you see challenges as an opportunity or a threat," says the Mayo Clinic.
