The mind can hurt you, or help you. You just have to know how to go about using the mind to your advantage. As you walk through the maze of your mind, you will find that there are all kinds of obstacles that can hinder you in finding your way. You may run into a dead end, or run into a two-sided mirror that only reflects the image of you. Whatever your case may be, you can’t give up trying to sharpen your mind.
Memories can act as a barrier for you to because despite the good memories you have, I am sure that there are some bad memories that you wish that you could just forget. I know personally, I have wonderful memories and there are some memories that I can recall that I wish that there were someway that I could go back in time and make them not even happen, but you can’t let that get you down. My bad memories are pretty horrifying but I manage to let the good ones form a cloud over the bad. So that when I want to take a stroll down memory lane, I have no problem doing so.
Your mind holds the key to all of the memories you have stored from the time that you were born up until the age you are now. In my case, that is twenty years of information that my mind has stored and unless you have suffered a serious disease or disorder your mind has the ability to pull all of those memories up. Just think of all the things that you have done in your life that meant a lot to you. As soon as you do think of those memories, your mind is going to start playing a film of what your life has been like. For those of you that do suffer from physical or mental disorders or disease there is still a chance that you may be able to recall your memory however, it may be painful. That is why it is important that you speak to your therapist before trying any of the techniques that I have described.
Some people have the ability to master their mind, which is great. Still, others have no ability at all to pull their thoughts together. This is often a struggle in school, at work, in relationships, and as a completely difficult in life. What can you do when you just can’t remember? Are you constantly getting in trouble for forgetting information that is important?
In order to sharpen your memories you are going to have to organize your thoughts, once you have outlined the basics you should be able to write down certain things that you can remember so that you can derive a conclusion. The more you write down your thoughts, memories, ideas, and the like the more easily it will get for you to remember. In addition, you can use the recite and repeat tactics to recall important information. The more practice you put into sharpening your mind, the likely you will not forget. Keep in mind that the short-term memory spots information, processes and instantly forgets. With this in mind, you can see that looking at the information closer can sharpen the short-term memory.
Before I go let me say one more thing that could help you along the way. When you do come to a certain memory that may be hard for you to face, don’t just stop trying to realize what has happened. All you need to do is work yourself around that certain memory so that you can go forth with your search to define you.
