Jim Kwik Limitless

Jim Kwik quotes: on brain training, living limitless, self-care and more.

“The faster you can learn, the faster you can earn.”

“The biggest barriers in our lives are the limits our mind creates.”

“Overthinking: the art of creating problems that don’t exist.”

“There is no such thing as a good or bad memory, just a trained memory and an untrained memory.  But like any muscle, it’s use it or lose it.”

“Real friends don’t make your troubles vanish.  They are the ones who don’t vanish when you have troubles.  Love and appreciate those who have always been there.”

“Whatever is good for your heart is good for your head.”

“Here’s the truth.  Creating the life you want can be scary.  But you know what’s scarier?  Regret.  One day, we will take our final breaths, and none of other people’s opinions or our fears will matter.  What will matter is how we loved, laughed, learned, and lived.  Be you.  Do you.”

“The life you live are the lessons you teach.”

“Remember and express what lights you up.  Joy and gratitude are contagious, so is gloom.  Choose wisely.”

“Knowledge alone is not power.  It has the potential to be power.  All the books, podcasts, seminars, coaching, and online programs won’t work until you do.  Information without application is useless.  The great aim of education and ‘self help’ is not knowledge for knowledge sake, but action.  Knowledge times action equals power.”

“A few moments of insane self belief and bravery can change everything.”

“Often the problem is not your retention, but you attention.”

“You have to monitor your self-talk.  Because your mind is always eavesdropping on your self-talk.”

“Technology is not good or bad, it’s a tool you use (like fire).  But when it’s using you, then who becomes the tool?”

“Don’t wait for someone to give you what you can give yourself.”

“Just when the caterpillar thought its world was over, it became a butterfly.  Don’t downgrade your dreams to meet the current situation.  Upgrade your mindset, motivation and methods to meet your dreams.”

“The best exercise you can do to be mentally fit is to read more.”

“It is not about being perfect, it’s about progressing and advancing beyond what you believe is possible.”

“The world is but a canvas to the mind.  I point to my head as a symbol.  To remind us that it all starts in our mind—that we all have genius inside us and how important it is to prioritize mental health and fitness.”

“It’s better well done than well said.”

“Remember, sometimes taking a break is the most productive and necessary thing you can do.  You have permission to rest.  You are not responsible for fixing everything that is broken.”

“Check on yourself as much as you check on your social media.”

“The most important thing it to keep the most important thing the most important thing.”

“Difficult times can diminish us, define us, or develop us.  We decide.”

“In a world full of critics, a reminder to trust and believe in who you are.  Your authentic self—the one that may have been muted and sedated, buried beneath a pile of other people’s expectations.  No one has the right to define who you are.  We do ourselves a great disservice when we let the noise of other’s opinions distort our reality, subvert our own thoughts, and drown out our inner voice.  Of course learn from feedback and mentors, but ultimately know that you and you alone are responsible for your life.”

“You inspire those around you, even if they don’t admit it, with your grit and grace.”

“What’s common sense is rarely common practice.  Respect the building blocks.  The great ones never get bored of the basics or take the fundamentals for granted.”

“Sometimes we must fight through bad days to earn our best ones.”

“Audit your inner voice and stand guard to the doors of your mind, especially to the low opinions of others.”

“Remember that every single thought rewires your brain at a neurological level.  If you knew how powerful your mind is, you wouldn’t think or say anything you don’t want to be true.  And when we do think something negative, it’s not the end of the world any more than eating one donut is.  Just don’t beat yourself up, correct it with something simple like the word ‘yet.’  ‘I’m not great at this… yet.’  Bottom line: what you say, think and hear matters, especially to your gray matter.”

“Think like a person of action, act like a person of thought.”

“You need to believe that you can do anything you want to do.  We are truly limitless.  The only limits are the ones you put on yourself and create in your mind.”

“Don’t complicate it, keep it simple.  Ignore the noise.  Do you.  Work hard.  Keep learning.  Be kind.  Amazing things will happen.”

“For me, since I had my childhood brain injury, my focus has always been putting one foot in front of the other.  Not only on days I feel like it, but on days I don’t.  Some days are grueling and painful, and I’ve wanted to stop.  Other days I may have even fallen a few steps back.  But overall, my goal is to move steadily upward.  My hope is that you do too.  That the only time you turn around is to look back at how far you’ve come, and that you realize you’ve traveled much farther than you thought possible.”

“If you want to fly, you have to give up the things that weigh you down.”

“So when you feel overwhelmed or scared, just breathe, rest if you need, and when you’re ready just take one simple step.  Small steps add up.  Little by little, a little becomes a lot.  And remember patience.  It’s not the ability to passively wait, but rather to have a positive attitude while you keep climbing.  There are no limits.  Action plus attitude will determine the altitude you’ll reach on your journey to new heights.  Enjoy the process and the view.”

“Be too optimistic to scare, too positive to doubt, and too determined to be defeated.”

“Fill your mind with good stuff, surround yourself with good people, do good work, and good things will happen.  It’s that simple.  And it’s that hard.”
