13.Jun.2021

raise your hand if you think you have a
fantastic memory okay I can see a couple
of hands raising so let me make it easy
for you I'm going to ask you easy 
question raise your hands if you think
you have a bad memory Oh a lot more
hands going up right now and what about
the rest of you did not raise the hands
you forgot to raise your hands well
here's the goodness it really doesn't
matter whether you think you have a good
memory or not because it's a fact that
you can train your brain to remember
better to learn faster and to achieve
mastery in anything you want in your
life and I'd like to show you something
really interesting here which actually
demonstrates to you what you can do if
you train your brain now I would request
any five a few any five people can have
a volunteer to please come here and rive
something on the flip chart yeah we got
two volunteers right from here so one
two three thank you for thank you okay I
promise you you don't have to remember
anything that's a good thing yeah okay
so we got one more person one person
it's come on just one more person I want
one more person to come up yes sir
please come
okay anyone it's fun all right so we got
five bigger of applause for all of them
here thank you very much for
volunteering okay so this is what's
going to happen so I think you can start
just didn't here is to the flipchart so
all you need to do is just open it for
you so all you need to do is to write s
600 people fine right a six digit number
on this flip shot right little big so
everyone the audience can see so online
a six digit number and after you've done
this please pass the market the next
person you write the six digits six
digits six digits and sir is it okay if
you stay back after you written on the
your digit because I need a little bit
more help from you okay good okay
perfect
so so I'm going to go behind the
flipchart
so because I'm not going to look at
these numbers for the next few minutes
all good so far okay good so now you
also need to write a six digits a random
number
all right so if everything went well you
should be having a 30 digit number on
the flip chart is that correct okay
everyone thank you very much and please
have a seat have a seat
except you okay now I'm gonna stand
behind the flip chart and I will if you
don't mind can you please call these
numbers to me out loud one by one yes go
ahead right right right right right
right right right right sorry I think I
just messed up a little bit thing here
so after you said to zero what are the
next number four eight okay next
six okay go ahead right right right
right right right right right
right right right right right right
right right right right right right
right so thank you very much applause
for and zero here perfect thank you all
right
so of course you're expecting me to do
something which is true
so what's gonna happen is I'll try to
recall these numbers for my memory and
let's see how it goes
the numbers are seven seven one seven
okay I messed up let's start again so
it's seven seven one two zero four eight
six seven three two zero three zero
seven seven three one nine eight two two
five okay wait it's eight - after that
should be it's nine five one six two
five three four
[Applause]
what's the time right now so what's the
time right now it for if I sometimes
8:45 is not the right time for me I miss
one or two digits all right so what
you've seen is a demonstration of what
anyone can do now that's just a 30 digit
number we'll come back to now some of
you wondering oh how I memorize these
numbers I'll come back and explain to
you how I did it now one of my records
is I memorized a number consisting of
1944 digits it looks something like that
I memorized a deck of playing cards in
less than two minutes
I also memorize a deck of seven decks of
playing cards in 60 minutes so for those
of you are thinking of taking me to the
casino I'm available we can talk about
the negotiation later on and also I
became a grandmaster of memory many
years ago and also broke a Guinness
record in memorizing the longest
sequence of colors now it is true that I
broke a Guinness record in memory and it
was also true that many years ago I used
to hold a world record in forgetting
it's not official if you ask my mom and
dad they'll tell you I had a lousy
memory in fact I still remember one of
those days spend my 15 years old.i my
mom asked me to buy something from the
shop I got onto my bicycle we went to
the shop parked my bicycle went into the
shop and as I was going into the shop I
totally forgot I went there on a bicycle
walked out of the shop and started
walking back home and the most
embarrassing thing was I realized I left
my bicycle
only the next day now for those of you
wondering what happened to the bicycle
well you guessed it I lost it so I had a
lousy memory I went from a person with a
lousy memory to breaking a Guinness
record and the good news is anyone can
train their memory anyone can become a
fast learner
because today I'm going to show you my
formula of how you can learn anything
and master anything in a fun easy manner
so I'm going to show you some pictures
on the screen as and these are some
famous people so who is this
thank you who's that thank you very much
and who's this and then who's this a
proven fit it's not a quick interaction
here can you please find a partner the
person sitting next to you by default
becomes your partner groups of two suit
race is fine okay ten seconds and your
exercise is very simple can you please
turn to your partner and tell him or her
what is common among all these people
you ten seconds starts now go ahead okay
thank you very much that's about ten
seconds time thank you very much can I
have some answers please shout out loud
what is common billionaires thank you
what is that come on Americans are they
Oh
so next time I should chain that thanks
for pointing it out thanks celebrities
what else
inspiration that's true now can I also
say that all these people are masters at
their game do you agree with that well
they're masters at their game so you
don't when I was a teenager growing up
but I used to read or hear about
successful people and their
extraordinary achievements I always used
to be fascinated by their stories and
always used to wonder you know what is
it that makes these people very very
successful and I'm talking about way
back 1990s and those days there was no
internet and if you want to do research
in 1990 what do you do you go to library
that's exactly what I did I went to the
library I fell in love with trading
books and I used to read hours and hours
and finally when I started reading a lot
of these books I found out the secret of
success like most of you say I mean
they're all rich in billionaires but
then most of the common things like you
know they are passionate all these
useful peoples are passionate they have
clear goals they're they have a good
purpose they're hard-working they're
committed they're confident but one
thing that many people miss out is they
all have committed to lifelong learning
you name any person who has achieved
extraordinary levels of success I can
tell you that does person has committed
to lifelong learning they keep on
learning new things on a regular basis
Oliver Wendell Holmes said a long time
ago a mind that is stretched by a new
experience can never go back to its old
dimensions and that is the reason I say
that your learning ability decides your
earning capacity and there's also the
reason why if you learn faster you will
stand out from everyone else if you
learn faster you can go from underpaid
to overpay and if you learn faster you
can have an unfair advantage over others
so the question is how do you not so it
all starts with input what I mean by
input now most people they just focus
way too much on input what I mean by
input is they go to seminars they read
books they watch videos they listen to
podcast they follow up blogs its input
input input input and more input well
there's nothing wrong with learning the
problem is if you have too much of input
with no output what happens is you have
shallow learning that's not good what we
want is not shallow learning for example
how many of you had this experience
where you know some of your friends come
to you and say hey read this book and
then you go yeah what do you learn from
this book and then they go say good book
it's a good book it's a very good book
you know and then you go okay like I
understand what he was saying but what's
the take away from this book for you and
say I tell you you must read this book
[Laughter]
well what's the point of learning
something if you can't implement it and
benefit from this that is pure
intellectual entertainment nothing else
we don't want shallow learning we want
deep learning and how do you do that we
do it it's very simple for true mastery
you need to focus more on the output
rather than the input you need to focus
more on the output rather than the input
so raise your hand if you heard this
thing before yeah thank you very much to
use it or this is so true with learning
when you learn something if you don't
use it if you don't output it you lose
it
so that's reason why we should become
more of an output person than input and
here's my formula of how you can be a
master at anything the first things of
course learn which is what do you
already you're doing now the interesting
thing is when you are learning you must
ensure that the quality of input is
really really high you must be paying
100% attention but the problem is when
people are learning these days what do
they do they do multitasking because of
what because the devices that you're
actually holding right now because of
the phones that we have people do
multitask and just imagine even you're
reading a book when you're watching a
video you have your phone nearby and
while you're reading while you're
learning while you're understanding and
the phone message goes off there's a
notification goes off what do you do
of course you attend to it when you
attend to it what happened what you just
did you killed your momentum you messed
up with the quality of input now here's
the thing your quality of input
determines the quality of retention how
well and how long can you remember
information it also affects the quality
of recall that's the reason why my
suggestion is if you are learning
something at least for the time you're
learning you should be doing not
multitasking but the exact opposite of
it which is single task to one thing at
one time especially it comes to learning
stay away from distractions pay 100%
attention and then you'll be well on
your way to mastering that the first
thing as
second things of course is reflect now
many people are in the rush to learn new
things which is good but the problem is
you don't you also need to do reflect
what I mean by that
after you learn something pause for a
while and ask yourself hey what's the
take away from this thing and how can I
use this information in my life how can
I use information in my work in my
family when you pause when you reflect
when you ask these questions
that's how learning solidifies otherwise
it's all just wasted and after reflect
the next step is implement and this is
where the magic happens and
unfortunately many people miss out on
this thing what they do is they go on
learning new things they get excited and
they feel good they feel inspired and
they're going to learn something new you
just messed up but the problem is if you
get into the habit of just learning
without implementation you know what you
get you get illusion of competence you
feel you've learnt it you feel you're
competent but it's not competence at all
because you haven't implemented so my
suggestion is when you are learning
something stop right down what are the
few things I can take action on schedule
it in the calendar and take some action
because this what might one of my
mentees told me the shunt allows the
action is better than no action do you
agree with that thank you very much and
of course the last step is share raise
your hand if you heard this thing before
the best way to learn something is to
teach it thank you you all heard that
and that is so true when you learn
something just output it just share it
other people know if you don't know if
you don't want to teach they could just
share it you could just discuss it but
what happens is when you share things
other people what you're doing is you're
helping your brain to pay more attention
and then you will be on your path to
mastery so I have not seen anyone who
became a master at something just by
doing the input they all became masters
by doing the input and more of the
output so I have a question for you when
you are learning something new how much
time do you spend on learning and how
much time do you spend on reflecting on
implementing and on sharing
and if you're not spending more time and
input in output that's not a good thing
now come back to the numbers I memorize
I'm just I know you're wondering how a
memorize these numbers know for that I
have a simple system it's called
visualization and Association now how
many of you believe that the brain
remembers pictures better yes that's
reason why we always say I have seen you
somewhere sorry what's your name
do you ever say I know your name what's
your face the human brain works so what
I do is I have pre assigned visuals for
every two digit number so as angela was
calling these numbers to me so what I
did was I tried to you know convert
those into the number visuals that I
already have and I use Association to
link them up together now if you're
wondering mission how do you do so fast
that is where implementation comes when
you practice and you implement it that's
how you become a true master now in fact
when I'm going to do these workshops
people can do this at the end of one day
or two days it's not that easy if you
know the right technique now coming back
to this thing oops
I have a simple solution for you
before I close and this is this if
you're spending X amount of time on
input my solution is at least spend two
X amount of time on output and when you
do that you are well on your way to be a
master at achieving anything you want
because I messed up a couple of digits I
want to challenge myself
we've got inspired after Monod speech
I'm gonna challenge myself and turn out
my fear and face my fear and what I'm
gonna do is just take one moment I'll
try to recall this number one more time
after speaking for 20 minutes okay know
if this don't go well just cut this out
from the YouTube
it's good ok so that's true so the
Pacific I'm recall these numbers in the
backward sequence challenging myself who
knows four three five two six one five
nine two eight nine one three seven
seven zero not yet three zero two three
seven six eight four it's zero two one
seven seven seven
