Life in Focus 021: Jim Kwik, Reprogram Your Brain and Change the World

Sep 17, 2019




If you’ve ever had trouble in school, felt like you didn’t belong, or lacked confidence because of your mental abilities, you'll love this episode.

I interview Jim Kwik, the world’s expert in brain performance, founder of Kwik Learning (yes, that is his real name!) to master speed reading and memory enhancement, brain and memory coach who focuses on strategies for mental performance, and who has most recently been Knighted under the Royal Order of Constantine.

Jim tells the story of his difficult childhood when he suffered a brain injury which left him learning challenged. School was beyond difficult for him and he had given up on being more than "the kid with the broken brain" a label that his own school teacher branded him with. That name marked him for life, but he kept trying to pass school to please his parents, until it was just too much and he was ready to drop out.


Thankfully Jim didn’t drop out, and during this interview he tells us not only how he pulled the strength to continue and make it through college, he also tells us how he started a brilliant brain business and overcame his broken brain label!

Jim also gives us some very useful techniques he discovered from high performers: the power of getting perspective, asking new questions, and of keeping a journal.
