The Mental Resurgence IQ Matrix explores how to gather the strength and mental stamina you need to overcome life’s struggles. When life pulls you down, you can either stay down or pick yourself right back up again. How you face your struggles is a true reflection of your character and your ability to make the best of trying times. This map is designed to pull you out of periods of struggle. Mental resurgence is about picking yourself up and building the momentum you need to accomplish your desired objectives, whether you feel like it or not.
The map walks you through the importance of activating your energy. It explores how to utilize gratitude, curiosity, love, and hope to pull yourself through difficult times. It delves into how to tap sustainable levels of motivation and guides you on how to systematically respond to your struggles.
Here is a quick breakdown of each branch of the Mental Resurgence mind map:
- ACTIVATE: The one thing holding most people back from successfully working through their struggles comes down to their energy and levels of vitality. If your energy is depleted, then no amount of motivation will pull you through your struggles. The first branch of this map explores the importance of revitalizing your energy. Moreover, this branch takes you through how to activate the critical virtues of gratitude and curiosity that you will need to prime your brain when facing adversity.
- CONNECT: To successfully work through your struggles, you need to channel the best version of yourself and put that version to work to help you overcome your struggles. This map’s second branch takes you through how to mentally connect with your best self and bridge the gap between where you’re at and what is possible when your best self takes the lead. This connection is also strengthened when you tap into the virtues of hope and love highlighted on the branch.
- IDENTIFY: People who succumb to their struggles don’t often have an obvious way out. In other words, they don’t have a concrete goal and objective that they’re working toward. The third branch of this map presents you with questions that will help you outline a clear set of targets while building the sustainable motivation you need to accomplish that goal.
- SELECT: How you respond to your struggles determines whether or not you have a shot of hitting your target. And your response comes down to your protocol. Your protocol is your official procedure or system of rules that govern how you behave under certain conditions. The last branch of this map walks you through selecting the protocol and response you will use to overcome your struggles and accomplish your desired objectives.
This map provides a roadmap and framework for finding the mental strength you need to work through periods of adversity and struggle. Referencing it regularly and committing it to memory will help you to embed these concepts and ideas into your subconscious mind.
A mind map does this beautifully because it mirrors the synaptic connections made in your brain as you are trying 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, thereby, rewiring itself as it attempts to establish new habits of mind. It’s the perfect tool for creating lasting change and transformation.
