Becoming Limitless

Becoming Limitless

To becoming limitless you need right 3Ms - Mindset, Motivation and Method.

1.1K

Free your mind (Part I)

Free your mind (Part I)

  • Becoming limitless is about learning how to learn ...embodying the behaviors, tools, & strategies that bring maximum results and rewards for our efforts.
  • When our mindset is right, we are motivated from within to act, and we know an effective way of acting - we become limitless in how much we can grow. 
  • Our brain can make new connections and grow (neuroplasticity & neurogenesis) till the last day of our life. So our capacity to learn & grow literally has no limits.
  • All of us use 100% of our functional brain, some just do it better than others. Just like we all use 100% of our functional body but some get more out of it with comparative ease because of the effort they put into it.

4 Supervillains of Learning

4 Supervillains of Learning

  • Digital deluge - Access to so much information leads to overload where we don't get the time to manage this information effectively. It adds stress to our life.
  • Digital distraction - Always-on ever-connected devices are making it difficult to stay focused. It leads to multitasking. Multitasking uses up the same fuel that we need to stay on task reducing productivity.
  • Digital dementia - Outsourcing some of brain's actions to smart devices - the habit of accessing instant information - makes part of the brain deteriorate from underuse. 
  • Digital deuction - Letting technology do the deduction for us (influence over which restaurant would be best, how to react to certain information, etc.) makes our problem-solving ability weaker.

The solution - It's up to you to choose how & how much you engage.

Limitless

The underlying concept of Limitless is that human potential is the only truly infinite resource in the world, and any limits we have are self-imposed. To achieve more, remove the limits in your mindset, motivation, and the methods you use. Remove those limits, or install expanded and better systems or operating software, and you can tap into the superpowers that you already have. This is very motivational and empowering.

Giải phóng tâm trí của bạn (Phần I)

Trở thành không giới hạn chính là học cách học ... thể hiện những hành vi, công cụ & chiến lược mang lại kết quả và phần thưởng tối đa cho những nỗ lực của chúng ta.

Khi tư duy của chúng ta đúng, chúng ta có động lực từ bên trong để hành động, và chúng ta biết cách hành động hiệu quả - chúng ta trở nên vô hạn trong việc chúng ta có thể phát triển đến mức nào. 

Bộ não của chúng ta có thể tạo ra các kết nối mới và phát triển (sự dẻo dai và hình thành thần kinh) cho đến ngày cuối cùng của cuộc đời chúng ta. Vì vậy, khả năng học hỏi và phát triển của chúng ta không có giới hạn.

Tất cả chúng ta đều sử dụng 100% chức năng bộ não của mình, một số chỉ làm việc đó tốt hơn những người khác. Giống như tất cả chúng ta đều sử dụng 100% cơ quan chức năng của mình nhưng một số lại khai thác được nhiều hơn nó một cách dễ dàng so với những nỗ lực mà họ đã bỏ ra.
