Think about something…
Ancient people passed down religious texts and massive poems and stories…
With no printing press.
Sure somethings were lost. But it’s remarkable how much was not.
Why does it seem that ancient people had this crazy knack for memory and we can’t even remember what we did last week?
Well, it’s in large part because they had a system very well known in the ancient days and it seemed to have been lost around 1600 AD for some reason only to make a recent comeback in last 100 years.
Mark Twain wrote about it as if it was the greatest thing ever discovered and this is about the time it started making a comeback.
I guess I should introduce myself, I am Ron White a 2 time USA Memory Champion. I’ve held the record for the fastest to memorize a deck of cards in the USA and recently I memorized the entire US Constitution (4,453 words) and wrote it on a wall for Fox television. See pic
If you are asking the question, ‘How to pass certification exam?’ This might be the answer…
The ancient method was written about by Cicero about 2,000 years ago in his writings ‘Ad Herennium’
He tells the story of Simonedes a man who discovered that you could remember anything by visualizing it around a room.
Don’t believe me?
Check this out…
* Look at your window right now…now imagine someone is there saying HI!!!!!!!!
* Look at your table right now…now image balloons are tied to it lifting it up.
* Look at your chair right now… imagine it is being powered by lithium batteries and explodes.
* Look at your computer right now…imagine a bear jumps out and attacks you! Yikes!!
If you actually took the time to imagine these (and not just read this post) I could ask you…
* What was on the window?
* What was on the table?
* What was in the chair?
* What was jumping out of your computer?
And you’d be able to say…
* Lithium batteries
What’s the big deal you say?
Well, the first 4 elements on periodic table…
* Hydrogen (HI!!)
* Helium (balloons)
* LIthium (Lithium batteries)
* Beryllium (Bear)
Simple? Sure I’ll grant you that. But that’s the point!!!!! You are stressed about this exam for no good reason!!!
How do you think I memorized the constitution word for word? It was with this system!
Now the key is you have to go in order, you can’t jump around the room like this example. And there are other important keys to this system too.
When wondering how to pass certification exam I highly suggest you start with this ancient memory training strategy.
But with practice you can master this method here is a video about it
