Improve Your Memory to have More Time for Profit and Fun

"Memory is the library of the mind"
Francis Fauvel-Gourand

It's amazing just how much one program can inspire and stimulate you. While I was watching the Stephen Wiltshire documentary I was reminded of just how often I hear people say that they have a poor memory.

The thing is when you continually say to yourself that you have a poor memory it simply makes matters worse.

The truth is that while Stephen has a condition which enables him to use his memory to a degree and in a manner that would be unlikely for the average person to replicate we can all improve our memory. And we can do so through the practice of certain proven techniques.

Having a good memory can be quite advantageous. It can enable you to shine at meetings and presentations because you will not be reliant on your notes all the time.

Remembering people's names can really help to build rapport. And if you can take this a step further and remember details about a friend's or colleague's family or remember their birthday or anniversary, etc. this can help to strengthen your relationship.

It can help you to find things quickly and effortlessly. It can help to ensure that you remember to pack all the important things that you need for a trip or presentation.

It can help you to find places easily so that you don't waste time getting lost.

In fact, if you add up the time that the average person spends trying to find things that have been lost you would find that it is quite significant and could be better spent.

So, why not spend a little of that time improving your memory so that you can find time doing things for profit or fun rather than waste it looking for things.

You can download an excellent ebook from Brainobrain™ called "Awaken Your Memory with NLP" to help you to improve your memory by clicking the link below

Free Memory Book

This is an easy-to-read book with lots of useful tips and exercises to help you improve your memory. It also provides an understanding of how your memory works.

Now, I know there are fancy gadgets that can help you find items such as lost keys and remote controls but they really don't resolve the underlying problem - a weak memory.

Remember, your memory is like a muscle. Use it or lose it!

So, in case you've forgotten, here's that link again:
