How to Break Free From the Boxes You’ve Put Yourself In

With Jim Kwik

“Whatever you ask for, you get more of.” My friend Jim Kwik mentions that our lives are kind of like Facebook filters. If you start clicking on ads for cat videos, more cat videos appear on your feed. So, if you allow your mind to focus on thoughts of feeling inadequate or incorrect ideas, the more limited, restricted, and boxed-in you’ll become.

On today’s Broken Brain Podcast, I talk with Jim about how to become limitless. People tend to put themselves into boxes and create rules and limits that can cut into our true potential. When we allow ourselves to live by these rules, such as “I’m not good at remembering names,” or “I’m not good at math,” or “I’m not good at saving money,” our brain believes these rules as truth and we have no choice but to follow them. In today’s episode, we cover exactly how to break free from these arbitrary rules and limits and truly become limitless.
