Memory techniques work on anything that you like to master.

.

You’ve heard about several memory enhancing techniques. Linking and associating, creating a story out of several items you need to remember.

 

There are in fact, many ways how you can remember important information such as numbers, events, errands and names. The challenge is how to make all the information easy to retrieve, out of the top of your head in a random situation.

 

Memory techniques work on anything that you like to master. There are things you may need to work on in memorizing something for the first time but all information has techniques on how they can all be memorized. It just takes a lot of interest and enthusiasm to be able to absorb all the information we want to understand and remember.

 

Creating an absurd and outrageous story from a list of non-related items will do well enough to stick in your head. What else is that it stays there in your memory the way the story is created, the chronological order and even the positioning of the character!

The fun part about this technique is that there’s no limit to how you want to create the story and the sillier it is; the easier for you to remember it and the keywords that comprise it.

 

Now you’ll say what if you need to memorize an entire chapter of items and information; surely you can’t create a novel out of this. True. But in fact, what you can do to get around this problem is to break down all the information you need to remember. Try to put the related or similar items in one cluster and name it. Do the same with the rest.

 

You can also create acronyms out of the clusters you have made and then, create a silly story using the acronyms or the cluster of words you’ve created.

 

Once you have this ready, you can then associate mental images with the story and each key word you’ve made. It has been proven that the imagination, especially when there’s clear images associated with it works efficiently – efficient enough to be remembered.

Following these techniques for the first time may come a bit slower and difficult but practising them can gradually increase your expertise over any memorization tasks.

Remember, we’re not aiming for perfection. Rather, we are focusing on progress.”

.

No-excuses-anymore

 .

“You’re a doer, because you’re prepared to make the necessary effort to translate your dream into action.”

 

“Everyone has the right, the means, and the responsibility to succeed on their own terms.”

 

“There isn’t a single one of us who hasn’t harvested either the positive or negative effects of a simple choice of behavior.”

 

“Although the responsibility to succeed ultimately lies with the individual, success isn’t all about self. It’s also about how you deal with other people.”

 

“Seek out those who are in the process of blossoming, people who’ve got something to teach you, and you will find yourself growing through osmosis. Negativity breeds negativity. Avoid it, or you’ll find yourself knee deep in it.”

 

“Everything that exists is created first in the imagination, and secondly in reality, through activity.”

 

“The beauty of lifelong learning is that everything’s a work-in-progress, and improvement is incremental. Remember, we’re not aiming for perfection. Rather, we are focusing on progress.”

 

“If we strive to work together imaginatively and unselfishly, we will be helping to achieve each other’s personal goals, and the combined legacy that we leave as a result will be brighter and more valuable than any of us could have achieved unilaterally.”

 

“Ungrateful people breed negativity. No one gets any pleasure from giving to an ungrateful person. When you show appreciation, the object of your attention blossoms and flourishes.”

The faithful alarm system in our heads is calling us to class so we can learn more about the art of DETACHMENT.

.

.

You might find the following stunning and difficult to comprehend. Self-doubt and fear can be used to your advantage. The natural thing that most of us do is to move away or run like crazy from the source that activate feelings of fear in us. We usually RESIST the source of fear. We attempt to project a brave face while we look for ways that we can leave the stage and still keep our dignity intact. We are here at earth school to learn and experience. We should view anything and anyone that trigger fear in us as our teachers or opportunities to learn. The first basic lesson that we need to learn is to stop RESISTING things and people that cause fear in our hearts and minds. The uncomfortable feelings we experience come from warped messages programmed into us by well meaning individuals. Our parents and teachers taught us how we should feel and act when confronted with an event that might have a negative outcome. The feelings that wash over us would not have had any impact on us if it had no message for us. The faithful alarm system in our heads is calling us to class so we can learn more about the art of DETACHMENT. We would have remained fully composed if we finished our lessons on the art of RESISTING perceived threats. We need to mentally transform the perceive threat into a watery substance that simply wash over and around us. You must learn the skill of allowing perceived threats to roll off you like water off a ducks back. The same principle can be used when we are expected to do a specific task that we fear. Become like water and move towards your goals and objectives in a relaxed and composed manner. When you look at the champions in life you always discover that they might also initially experience a wave of fear, but then stop RESISTING the cause of their fear and do what needs to be done. They do not see the initial fear chemicals released by the brain as a signal to run for the hills. They welcome the trigger because it tells them that it is time to stop RESISTING and FIGHTING. It will be silly to relax when you are confronted with a snake that is on the verge of injecting you with toxic venom. You will in real emergencies still act in a composed manner and remove yourself from the danger zone. Many say that they felt paralysed by their fear when they faced a perceive threat. It is always a sigh of strong RESISTANCE when you experience fear to a level where you find it difficult to breathe or move. Individuals that get anxiety attacks intensify the dreadful feelings that wash over them when they RESIST these feelings. Many that have been suffering with anxiety attacks for an extensive period cannot even recall what initially set the whole cycle in motion. All they know is that they fear their next attack. Individuals that suffer regular anxiety attacks will be amazed when they one day just sit back, breathe in a relaxed manner and stop RESISTING the dreadful feelings that they experience. They will soon discover that the attacks are nothing more than a toothless tiger. The so-called attacks soon run out of fuel.

 

The key to fear management is thus not combat. Go out today and check how many times you notice feelings of RESISTANCE that attempt to get your attention. Try and figure out what lesson you can learn from that event. Manage any event with a dose of NON-RESISTANCE. Become DETACHED like water or see the attack as nothing more than water as explained earlier.

Here is a good way to achieve your goals.

.

Here is a good way to achieve your goals


Step One: List Your Goals
.

Make a list of your intentions or goals.

Remember to achieve anything: The thought must come first.

If you can’t clearly state or formulate your goal, you will probably never reach it.

Practice making lists. Refine your lists. Write down your goals for next week, next month, next year. Learn to think clearly.

Step Two: Focus

Pick the goals you want to concentrate on right now.

Don’t pick too many things at one time.

For this exercise, I suggest not more than two to three goals at the same time. In fact, one goal at a time is very powerful.

Focus. Remember the power of focus.

Be sure you describe your goals as clearly as possible before you start the exercise.

Step Three: Relax

Relax.

Relax deeply.

Use any relaxation or meditation technique you like.

Get yourself into the alpha state. Breathe deeply.

Relax.

Enjoy this relaxed state for some minutes without focusing on anything in particular. As thoughts enter your mind, don’t get attached to them. Just let them drift by as if you were watching your thoughts pass by on a movie screen.

Step Four: Visualize

Now review in your mind the two or three goals or intentions you wrote on your list.

See each goal or situation or achievement or whatever it is you want to manifest in your life as clearly as possible in your mind. Visualize it in detail. See it. Feel it. Enjoy it. In the present tense. Right now. In as many details as possible.

Step Five: Give Thanks

Now rejoice and give thanks.

Enjoy the feeling of accomplishment and satisfaction that the achievement and manifestation of these goals will bring to your life. Give thanks as if they had already manifested.

Enjoy this feeling. Breathe deeply a few more times and then slowly stretch your arms, opens your eyes, and go back to your daily activities.

Stay Focused

For best results, do this exercise once or twice a day, every day for 5-10 minutes each time. And don’t change your goals or intentions too often. I find it’s best to stick to an intention until it manifests. Or until you feel you’ve done enough work and should let it go for a while.

Once you get the hang of it, you will probably find that you will want to do this exercise at least once a day, every day, for the rest of your life. Not just because it works, but also because it will help you clarify where you are at the present moment — and where you’re going.

Of course, your goals and intentions will change as you grow and change. Just remember:

Think clearly!

Think positively!

Your FEELINGS guide you faithfully during all your endeavours.

.

.

The most powerful tool you own is your ability to measure if your current ACTION will take you TOWARDS your GOAL or AWAY from what you DESIRE. You measure your progress and the quality of your CHOICES by the FEELINGS that you experience. People, events, blogs, movies, newspaper articles and people in general will either make you FEEL empowered or dis-empowered, strong or weak, inspired or deflated during or after you engaged them. Your FEELINGS guide you faithfully during all your endeavours. FEELINGS of ANGER, FEAR, ANXIETY and DEPRESSION shout out to you that you need to move away from a POTENTIAL TROUBLE SOURCE. When you read a book, blog or magazine you become UPLIFTED and MOTIVATED or you become aware that the material is sucking some of your valuable energy out of your body and soul. My friend many of the things we do and the interactions we have either HEAL us or make us SICK. We are either swimming UPSTREAM or DOWNSTREAM while we participate in this game of life. We must take time to STOP periodically so we can evaluate the STATUS of our current activity. Our best friend can be our worst enemy if such friend often feed us with toxic interactions that make us WEAK and WORRIED. The most dangerous people, situations and perceived opportunities are often “packaged” in fancy false disguise. Groups are often toxic. They might have a facades of saintliness and salvation that hide their hidden agendas and concealed motives. Repeat the following as often as you can today. I will today allow my FEELINGS and INTUITION to guide me while at work or play. I will not accommodate people, things and events that make me feel deflated, depressed or weak. My FEELINGS guide me today toward SUCCESS and away from potential FAILURE and LOSS. Look around you today and become aware how many things and people attempt to suck the LIFE ENERGY from you! Become aware how society is set up to US and ABUSE you. perceptions (beliefs) might need updating.
