How to Improve Memory Rapidly

If you're interested in magic pills— this article is not for you. I'm sorry, there is no such thing as a quick fix when it comes to memory.

You will learn how to improve your memory fast with the techniques I show you, however, there are so many systems saying you can do so little to get a massive result. It is not true. Real results require real training. So with that said let's get straight to the meat of it.

How to Improve Memory

Improving memory is fun. To get real graspable results we will need to use ancient techniques that Greeks had to use to memorize things like the Odyssey. They had no printed books so if they really wanted to learn the material and keep it in there memory there was only one way—to memorize the entire book!

To pull off a memorization feat like memorizing an entire book we need to learn to transform what we see into pictures and place them on specially pre-formatted storage cells in our brain, you have thousands of them right now and you probably don't even know it.

So where is the techniques

Okay I will give them too you, here is the pinnacle of how to improve memory. Keep in mind this one important fact: 100% of what you do and don't remember is based on connections and associations in your brain, without them, you can not have memory. Knowing this we can super-impose connections and make our memory work for us not against us.

First think of a concept or fact: Such as when a octopus is born it is only about the size of a flee.

Now transform it to an image: Such as a octopus body with a flee head.


But that's only the first step.. now we have to attach that onto those special pre-formatted cells I talked about.

To get those cells we must cruise down a familiar place. Such as a street or your house, mentally of course. Take the first thing you see and we will use that—each stop or place or item on your mental journey is a cell space we can use and because memory is formed by connections, we connect the image for our concept to the pre-formatted cell space.

For instance if the first cell space I saw was a door I would see the octopus tentacles latched onto the door and see the image in full. With these techniques you can literally fit tens of thousands of concepts, words and definitions into your mind. Especially if you have a more advanced system.

Last Words

When we learn how to improve memory we are not just improving memory, we are learning to concentrate, think visually, and think faster which makes this the most effective brain training you can get.

Hope this helped,

I think you'll love a new article on memory exercises that is about to be published if you enjoyed my concentration article as well that you commented on. It is kind of the best of both :)
