7 Steps to a Limitless Life [Limitless MD, Episode 84]


In this podcast episode, we’ll talk about the Limitless MD “Pyramid of Mastery”. It’s a hierarchy of needs based on seven categories in life. Ignore any of them, and everything else gets knocked out of balance. Master them all, and you’ll be optimizing your life with a bulletproof mindset and a bounty of internally-generated joy and satisfaction.

The seven categories are (in order of importance) vitality-energy, mindset motivation, time and productivity, relationships, career and mission, wealth and lastly, legacy/impact and purpose. In this episode, we’ll talk through each of these categories. 

Tune in to discover:

  • Tips for creating a high energy state in the morning to fuel you for the day
  • How to avoid what I call “hedonic adaptation”
  • Strategies for gaining control of your time and maximizing productivity

Once you’ve mastered the first few categories, then you can move on to deeper questions, like understanding your true mission on earth. If you’re ready to move towards fulfilling your highest purpose, don’t miss this episode!
