Training Your Brain to Do the Impossible

Do you believe you could memorize 50 numbers in 2 minutes?

The 4x USA Memory Champion (yes that’s a thing) says you can – if you train your brain.

Nelson Dellis was just a normal computer engineer.

Then his grandmother passed from Alzheimer’s disease, and he got a new perspective on life.

So he started learning memory training as a hobby — and he has turned it into his full-time career.

"Train your brain everyday."  

Not only does Nelson compete in memory championships around the world, he also has created great courses, videos, and soon a book to teach others his techniques.

And that’s not all.

He also has brought his love of mountain climbing into the same cause by climbing huge mountains (like Mt. Everest) while fundraising.

I loved how down to earth Nelson is. After talking with him on the podcast, I truly believed even I could learn to train my brain the way he has (not saying I’m going to anytime soon).

But Nelson’s core message is one I resonate with as well – it’s so important to train our brains as much as we train our bodies.

Welcome to a new world of your brain’s possibility in Episode 479.
