The Path to Genius IQ Matrix explores how to become what other people typically call a “genius”. What this map does very well is it establishes how geniuses are made, not born. In other words, becoming a genius is not an accident. It results from a very specific set of actions taken consistently over time in a specialized field of expertise. It’s this tremendous focus and discipline — coupled together with the right attitude and mindset — that transforms an ordinary person into a genius. This map breaks down what it means to be a genius. It walks you through the principles of deliberate practice and presents you with a five-step process for growing your genius.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of The Path to Genius mind map.
- The Creation of a Genius: The first branch of this map breaks down what it takes to become what other people call a “genius”. It essentially boils down to the little things such as your work ethic, energy, mindset, drive, level of persistence, passion, and obsessive focus. These are just some of the critical factors that go into creating a genius.
- Deliberate Practice: One of the key actions of a genius comes in the form of deliberate practice. The second branch of this map explores the value of deliberate practice, and what it takes to instill this important habit in your life. Deliberate practice comes down to a commitment to consistently doing something every day until you reach a level of mastery and proficiency that is far greater than most of the population. This is, however, not just about passively practicing something. It’s rather about proactively doing something with the intention of making improvements.
- Becoming a Genius: The final two branches of this map breakdown a five-step process you can follow to help you become a genius in your specialized area of expertise. These steps have been adapted from the work of Robert Greene in his bestselling book Mastery. The steps are certainly not complicated, but time, patience, and effort will be required to put them into practice.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for becoming a genius in any field of endeavor. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these principles into your subconscious mind.
A mind map, of course, does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you try to establish new habits of thought and behavior. It brings together key concepts and ideas that help your brain to fully integrate and process this information. The brain, subsequently, rewires itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s an ideal tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
As you progressively work through this map you will begin to fully comprehend what it takes to grow and develop into a genius in a specialized area of study. Yes, it will take a great deal of dedication, patience, effort, and ingenuity. However, with time, you will progressively adopt new habits and ways of thinking that will transform the way you work and how you express your imagination. And that is what will ultimately make all the difference and help you rise to the status of “genius” in other people’s eyes.
