This book is about getting out superhero power back using our Memory recalls i.e. using our brain to its actual potential. There are many tasks which seems impossible at start will become easy and feasible if we use our memory to full potential. There is no good or bad memory. There is only a trained memory and an untrained memory. Lots of myths about our memory is also busted with proper examples. Why I am writing this book? Because I have explored the memory recall benefits recently. It was when I was completely shattered and not knowing what to do after working in corporate world for around 20 years in companies like Raymond Ltd, Arvind Ltd, Jaysynth Dyestuff India Ltd. One day I was listening a motivation podcast named “7 GOOD Minutes” from Clyde Lee Dennis and I heard about memory training. I was not sure that there is something like memory training also exist. But believe me after I explored the subject and got a chance to be trained from Memory Coach Jim Kwik, I become truly LIMITLESS and start exploring different techniques of memory training from Tony Buzan, Aditi Mittal, Jonathan Levi, Keith Hope and Neerja Roy Choudhary. It boosts my confidence immensely. I also got a chance to get training from one of the India’s one of the finest Speaker/Trainer/Coach Ms. Rohini Mundra. Rohini has made me believe that this world in conquerable and you need to believe in you, this is just what is required from you and your unconscious mind will do the rest for you. I really start believing that at my age also I can train my memory to become limitless. To tell you the truth I memorized the complete Periodic Table, I can tell 100 objects forward and backward and I can use Number sound technique effectively. My kid who is just 7 years of age can tell 20 objects forward and backward, can tell first 10 elements of Periodic table and already started writing tables with tricks I have told him. This all just in span of 3-4 months only. This leads me to teach these methods to anybody and everybody who is struggling with their untrained memory. This book is just an effort to say thank you to all my teachers who have taught me at different stages of my life. In this book you will come across the methods by which you will able to learn how to learn in first place and any new learning will become a fun game for you. Though my aim of life is to bring changes in the lives of at least one million people but if this small effort of mine something so that even only one person got benefitted using techniques mentioned in this book, I will be the most happiest person on this earth and I will continue my effort make this world a happy place. Using memory strategies can give you that boost in your memory that we all need, and it can improve your efficiency in learning as well. Keep in mind that you may need to practice a few of these strategies before they come easily, but once you have them down, they should clearly benefit your learning and recall of information. Please treat this book as your entry ticket to untapped world of Memory recall and I will come up with the books with more advanced technique for all i.e. students and teachers, entrepreneurs, corporate employees, professionals and Home makers who are integral parts of society, in my upcoming series of books.
