I used to forget a lot during my schools year was below average student in academics.
Then one day I saw a billboard in my town.
There was a Memory training seminar in our town years back, around 600 people came in the seminar.
But only 8 of them took the actual class and I was one of them.
I was facinated by the memory feats by the memory athelete.
Since then I have been applying memory principles to my learning. I was amazed how quickly I was able to learn longs lists, paragraphs, poems, learned many songs in different languages and so on… I screamed Why didn’t anyone tell me about this during my school years.
I didn’t find any person in my city or my friend circle, who considered the importance of learning these principles. I have tried to explain them many times as how is it helpful in their academics as all exams in India, test students based on their memorisation ability.
But no one ever bothered to learn or give a ■■■■ about the techniques. Some showed interest but forgot the very next day. So I stopped explaining anything to my friends and went ahead with my memory journey alone.
I didn’t know much about memory championships, memory athletes and about this forum as well.
#And I am truly happy as I have found community who can relate, connect, and understand. Thank you guys I have found my goldmine.
