The next time

you have forgotten that new word or phrase you just learned...that's a fantastic moment!

How well your memory works is based on retrieval, so in order to create a sturdy, effective one, forgetting and retrieving that information repetitively, over a spaced period of time is the key!



The strongest sense linked to memory is your sense of smell! So the next time you study or are trying to remember something, bring in a scent that can act as a trigger for the retrieval of that information later on!



Your short term memory is indeed, extremely short.

Anything in the short term memory usually only lasts for 20 - 30 seconds! That's why, as soon as you actively hear a phrase you know you're going to be using in the future, involve as many senses as possible! Write it down, say it out loud, look it up on Linguee to hear the right pronunciation so that it sticks!

I pose this question because it is relevant now more than ever, particularly as our attention continuously gets drawn into more and more directions and our inner wisdom silenced by the *pings* of social media notifications.

I pose this question, because for a long time, when I thought I was improving myself, I was actually losing myself. The deeper story is in Episode #3 of my Perspective, Permission, Purpose series on Instagram (IGTV), so go and check that out. It’s worth it, trust me.

I know the distinction of the two, because that was the place I operated from; wearing the titles of a business woman, manager and entrepreneur so tightly on my skin that it silenced and destroyed the true essence of who I was within.

Consistently attending events, seminars, accolades….downloading more information, reading more, learning more, ticking off more boxes…why is more equated with the prospect of being enough in this society?

I thought it was because my clothes were not good enough. I was told I needed another separate wardrobe for filming because “people look up to you”.

That my nails needed to be perfect, my hair, my make-up….then it was my accent. Too this, too that. Simplify your speech. Then make it more educated. Speak more Portuguese, no, more German, no, more Spanish….

“Oh? You sing? And write poetry?”

You’re too pretty to be an entrepreneur.

So I hired more coaches. Started a new degree. And an NLP course.

Because somehow I felt that I was always one step behind.

Nothing felt like it was enough.

And how could it be?

Because I had disabled the one true source of wisdom and guidance,

It was the ethereal being

That is me.

Can you relate to this?
