I recently pre-ordered Jim Kwik’s book, ‘Limitless’ and as such, managed to get on to a free 10 day course as a bit of a warm up. And you guessed it, I’m loving it!
He just makes everything so simple and easy to understand, and even better, so easy to apply to your life (a bit which I often missed when it came to self-help in the past – meaning that it often never got me very far). I’m not sponsored, just a super-fan!
Today, I want to share his three Ms for becoming limitless, because I think these are applicable to any situation where you’re trying to change, grow, learn or challenge yourself.
Mindset. Motivation. Method.
Let’s break these down briefly:
- Mindset: this is the WHAT you’re trying to do and your thoughts and beliefs surrounding whether this is possible or not. Remember – whether you think you can or think you can’t, you’re usually right!
- Motivation: this is WHY – the reason behind what you’re trying to do (or not do).
- Method: and lastly, the HOW – your process/methods/strategy and techniques to actually get you from A to B.
A person might be incredibly motivated to lose weight, but after a lifetime of unhealthy habits and no clue of how to actually do this, they’re unlikely to be successful. Another person might know exactly what to do, but simply not have the mindset or motivation to actually do it.
To me, these three things are the building blocks upon which we can build steady, lasting change. Take one away though and everything crumbles.
If you’re facing a difficult challenge right now, ask yourself: Do I have the mindset, motivation and effective method in place to actually achieve this? If not, then at least you can start working on whichever M is missing.
