    Controlling Your Expectations

    This IQ Matrix explores the power of your expectations and how they shape your life on an off the basketball floor. It’s relatively easy to discount the effect that our expectations have on our lives. The reason for this is that we don’t often consciously think about the kinds of expectations we have in specific situations — which can ultimately hurt us. The wrong kinds of expectations can lead you astray because they influence every choice, decision, and action you take. In fact, your expectations influence your life in remarkable ways. The difference between success and failure on the basketball floor could very well come down to the expectations you hold. You can, therefore, either take conscious control of your expectations or you can allow them to run on autopilot. This mind map explores what expectations are and the impact they have on our lives. The map also walks you through how to handle failed, unrealistic, and negative expectations. The map concludes by showing you when and how to release your expectations and the positive impact this can have on your life.

“I’m a student of change and I’ve learned that for your being to be transformed, you need to see… to see something which will change you. I found in Adam’s mind maps a clarity that sometimes eludes me when reading books or articles. The playfulness of his work engages my brain completely. I received the value of my lifetime membership right from the beginning.  The past 3 years have been a gift for which I’m continuously grateful.”

Peter Domoc

“Whether you are an executive coach, a life coach, a therapist, a clinical counselor, a motivational speaker, an NLP Practitioner, a spiritual leader, or just a lifelong learner seeking to add value to your daily journey. Adam's mind maps are a vital key and an essential value-add to your library.  When you invest in them you are investing in yourself and in the lives of all those you influence, and it will give back in ways that far exceed your initial investment.”

"Basketball is like photography. If you don't focus, all you have is the negative."


Each IQ Matrix represents a cluster of thoughts about a single topic. It’s like a neuron network of interconnected thoughts where you meticulously explore the brain of someone who has successfully mastered the topic. You then take those thought clusters and implant them into your own brain as you use the map. Kind of like a software upgrade for your brain.


Each map effectively categorizes the most important and actionable ideas about a topic into conveniently digestible chunks. It uses keywords and questions in a sentence-like structure that’s easy to follow and understand.


Each map uses a combination of keywords, colors and images designed in an organic radial-like structure that naturally helps improve memory while encouraging photographic recall of the information you are exploring.​


Each map provides you with a comprehensive bird’s eye view of the topic. Subsequently, you gain deeper insights as you're better able to recognize how various ideas are interlinked together to form the whole topic.​
