http://selfgrowth4ever.com - Mental photography is possible, but it's only a vehicle used for learning. There are other benefits to learning this skill. It is far more than I bargained for.

Transcript of "Mental Photography- Why I Went to Australia | Self Growth 4 Ever"

  1. 1. www.selfgrowth4ever SELFGROWTH4EVER MENTAL PHOTOGRAPHY - WHY I WENT TO AUSTRALIA
  2. 2. Mental Photography- Why I Went to Australia “Are you that gullible and desperate that you spent two hundred bucks on this course? This sounds like nonsense. You know this is impossible. Take it back! Return it! You don’t have money to waste!” Those were my Mum’s words, which were shortly followed by my wife’s, “And he kept it a secret because he knew that this is probably a scam and he was too embarrassed to say that he bought something that just has a clever sales pitch.” I had kept it a secret for one whole unbearable week. My wife and I usually discussed and decided together on any big purchases. I figured the sales pitch of being able to mentally photograph a minimum of a hundred thousand words per minute was too much of a stretch. They were right. I was embarrassed. The sales pitch even warned to keep it a secret from friends and family because it said people would think I was bonkers. Maybe it was a scam. I had just dropped two hundred bucks on a course that sounded too good to be true. I had also kept it a secret because we were broke. I didn’t really have the money to spend, but I really needed this course. I had just landed a job as a substitute teacher and realizing my brain had turned to mush (I mean I couldn’t remember even the simple stuff) did make me desperate. I did feel like an idiot, I mean who wouldn’t? But being the stubborn old me, I was determined to prove them wrong. Call it a gut feeling if you will, but for some strange reason I believed what I was being sold. I had seen everything they were describing present in children, the sales pitch even spoke about children having a photographic memory and that with time, most of them lose this ability. I couldn’t give up without trying, not now, not after forking over my money, and definitely not after being so badly teased and mocked by my family. I had to save my pride! So I got busy. Everyday I would spend half an hour before work and half an hour before bedtime doing the silly little exercises I was told to do. There were simple relaxation exercises, an easy exercise to increase your peripheral vision, there was the turning of the book pages, which equated to turning one page per second, and there was also an exercise that only needed to be done every few weeks to every few months to increase your attention, this one was called the Einstein Distraction Index. Part of the daily routine was to mentally photograph a dictionary, then pick a word and recall (which feels like guessing) where you think you saw the word on the page. Within three weeks I could recollect between seven to nine out of ten times, where on the page I
  3. 3. saw the word. It wasn’t long before I found myself remembering things I thought I had forgotten. That fogginess in my mind even seemed to clear. Now having a good memory is all fine and dandy, but that’s just one tiny little bonus this course gave me. The bigger picture was it changed my life. How did it change my life? One of the first requirements of this course is to make a want list. You have to write down everything you want to have in your life. It was the first time I had ever attempted an exercise like that and I found it quite difficult. I was so used to knowing everything I didn’t want, that I had a very hard time being specific about the things I wanted. Zox Pro clearly states that it is not a memory course, but a brain management course, and it lives up to it. I became better organized, so my procrastination habit was at a minimal. I became more aware of my surroundings and most importantly, I became more aware of myself, and this for me was probably the greatest gift of all. I began to trust my instincts instead of my head, which always seemed to be very rational. Sometimes my gut instinct made no sense at all and yet I would be almost forced to trust it and go with it (without knowing the outcome). This seemed to be one of the keys to this course, learning how to trust your gut instinct! Our gut instinct rarely lets us down. I couldn’t believe the things that were happening to me. Almost all of things that were very important to me, that I had written on my want list seemed to have come true. I got the jobs I wanted, the money I wanted, I got to travel to South Africa for my cousins wedding and I even managed to go to Australia for the Executive Brain Management Seminar. My list seemed more like a wish list, a dream that would maybe come true in the faaaar future, and surprisingly all of it happened within a year. I had a million questions about everything I had learned. How could all of this have happened to me, how could my life change from doing a few silly exercises? I kept on emailing Shannon Panzo (who runs Zox Pro) with these questions, until one day he just got fed up and said that if I wanted all of those questions answered that I should attend one of the 3 day Executive Seminars. At the time it seemed impossible. I was broke, but little did I know I would actually get the opportunity to go less than a year later. About seven weeks before the seminar, I explained to my wife and mother about my intentions about going to Australia, but this time I was serious since I had saved enough money to go. I told them about the benefits I had received and that it would be foolish of them not to experiment with the course (I mean it was already bought and paid for). I also told them that if they started getting the results that I was getting from doing the exercises within the first month, that I would like them to join me for the seminar. It took about three weeks for them to actually see and feel improvements with their mind. And here’s the kicker… We booked three flights to Australia and three seats at the seminar!
  4. 4. Who would have thought that I would be attending the Executive Training Seminar with the two people who made me feel like the biggest idiot? I really never expected them to tag along. I was thrilled! The course that was too good to be true, turned out to be true after all… next week I’ll give you all the details of how angry, frustrated and embarrassed I got during the seminar and I’ll tell you why I experienced those emotions.
