It’s no mean feat imagining what would be possible with greater brainpower – if you yourself were greater. And so perhaps the best place for us to look to is fiction. What if we consider a fictional example of someone who is suddenly bestowed with incredible mental capacity?
And the best example of this probably comes from the film Limitless. In that film, the protagonist Eddie Mora is given a smart drug – a supplement called NZT. This tablet is an experimental drug that has the ability to help anyone to use ‘100%’ of their brains. (Of course, this is a load of nonsense – we already use 100% of our brains! But we’ll allow the writers the poetic license.)
When Eddie takes the NZT, he is instantly transformed. He goes from being a slob and a struggling writer to cleaning up his flat and his appearance and completing his manuscript – which of course goes on to become a best-seller. He then works out the stock market and begins day trading, becoming rich from his home. He talks several women into bed before winning back his ex with impressive displays of intelligence, such as his new ability to speak several languages. He moves into a stunning, luxury apartment and attracts the attention of an investment firm. Eventually, he uses the power and influence he accrues there to run for political office.
All this, because he was able to take control of his brain. Because he was able to see patterns that others missed. Because he ‘knew exactly what he had to do’. And because he gained sharper intuition and better cognitive skills.
Now, of course, this is a fiction and in reality, no such pill exists. Neither can we say with certainty that you would see such a huge impact on your life if you were to increase your brainpower alone.
But it’s certainly a believable idea that your life might change that much.
And what is very exciting is that there really are ways that you can boost your intelligence – albeit to a slightly lesser degree. There really are ways you can bring about tangible, measurable improvements in your life by focussing on ways to increase your IQ and your focus.
In this book, you’re going to learn precisely how to do that. You’re going to see how you can increase your intelligence and focus to a profound degree, how you can become sharper, how you can learn faster, and how you can even improve your ‘social IQ’. By the time you’re finished, you’ll know how to train your brain in just the same way that you would normally train your body. And the results will be incredible.
