Limitless: How Will Smith and the X-Men Got That Way – Jim Kwik Tells Dave Asprey – #695

Shed limiting beliefs, upgrade your brain, and access faster learning—it’s your superpower.

In this episode of Bulletproof Radio, my guest is a widely recognized world expert in memory improvement, brain optimization and accelerated learning. Jim Kwik has poured his life’s work into making people limitless.

“The No. 1 capability to cultivate today is learning,” Jim says. “If you learn how to learn, you can apply that towards everything. You can grant all of your own learning wishes.”

Jim’s going to show you how to break free of limiting beliefs, achieve new levels of success, and lead a more exceptional life. You’ll get a practical series of tools that will help you cast off your perceived restrictions and learn how to unlimit your brain.

After a childhood brain injury left him learning-challenged, Jim Kwik created strategies to dramatically enhance his mental performance. He has since dedicated his life to helping others unleash their true genius and brainpower. He’s on a mission to leave no brain behind and to do that, is reaching as many people as he can with a book based on his years of work with people from every walk of life:  “Limitless: Upgrade Your Brain, Learn Anything Faster, Unlock Your Exceptional Life.”

“In the limitless model, the first circle is your mindset,” Jim says. “All behavior is belief-driven. If you don’t believe it’s possible, if you don’t believe that you’re capable of it, if you don’t believe you even deserve it, the methods, they’re not going to have its full potent effects.”

Be sure to listen all the way to the end for a special offer directly from Jim.
