The Pillars of Success

Take up one idea. Make that one idea your life — think of it, dream of it, live on that idea. Let the brain, muscles, nerves, every part of your body be full of that idea, and just leave every other idea alone. This is the way to success.

Hi Adam, This is an awesome site with a wealth of fabulous information. I am an Arts and Crafts Blogger. I love the creative mind map that I received. It has been a tremendous help when I have “creativity mind block”. All your work is truly appreciated.

Since receiving the Pillars of Success information I have seen an increase on my blog and in my networking... Thank you for the amazing work you are doing and please don’t stop. From the comments I have read your work is very valuable to many people including myself. Thank you so much for all your hard work and creativity.

IQ Matrix maps are great for visual learners and logical thinkers. Having the whole picture, maze, in view has helped clients see where they could go if they backed up and turned a different direction.

Your mind maps are simply superb, thought provoking, inspiring, purposeful and useful... one can read one chapter in one page, visualize, remember, recollect, retrieve and reproduce very easily.

Adam's maps are a vital key to your library. When you invest in them you are investing in yourself and in the lives of those you influence, and it will give back in ways that far exceed your initial investment.

IQ Matrix maps are logical, read like a book, are visually oriented, compact and they stimulate thinking about the subject. I often take one with me on a coffee break to fill my mind with positive new ideas.

I use your maps before I enter any meeting to provide me out of the box thinking. It's easy to read and at the same time entertaining.


I have found the maps are a wonderful quick reference tool to help clients see the components of the issue being faced... I don't have to wade through pages of explanation but can get a sense at a glance.

Your mind maps gave me the big picture about many topics. I was able to understand how things were connected... things I learned in 20 years in like one day. I just see the world from a new perspective.

Four key questions answered...

  • q-iconAm I able to share this map and eBook with others?

    Yes, of course. Please feel free to share this map and eBook with your friends and family via email or social media. In fact, as an IQ Matrix member you will receive access to additional exclusive mind maps, eBooks and other resources over a period of 18+ months that you are also free to share. Just in case you missed it, here is a visual overview of the various maps, eBooks and resources you will receive in the coming months. I am very much looking forward to sharing them with you.

  • q-iconWhat is the purpose behind what you're doing with these maps?

    Every map, article and resource you will find on the IQ Matrix website is built upon the foundations of the MasterMind Matrix. This chart explores the psychology of achievement — built upon years of research and life coaching experience. Everything here rests on the foundations of this chart. The purpose of this website is to provide you with all the tools you need to overcome any personal and/or professional challenge you might face using simple visual tools that you can easily reference and refer to throughout the day. There will no longer be a need to plow through endless self-help books. All the guidelines you will ever need are presented within each map.

  • q-iconHow many maps do you plan to create over the coming years?

    That’s a good question. Since 2008 over 300 self-growth mind maps have been published on the site. Given all your feedback and suggestions, I now have ideas to publish another several hundred more maps in the coming years. And this is just a start as more topic ideas come to mind every month. Please click here to view a list of 100+ upcoming maps that are in the pipeline for production in the coming weeks, months and years.

  • q-iconI noticed that you offer a lifetime membership. What is this about?

    The IQ Matrix lifetime membership gives you access to 300+ self-growth mind maps including editable MindManager files of each map. The only reason I can continue to develop these maps is because of the support that I’ve received from members like you. Without your support this entire project would not be possible and I wouldn’t be able to continue my work. If you’re interested in showing your support for the site, then I would like to invite you to become a Lifetime Member. Your investment will continue to make all this possible.
