Speech Topics

Total Memory Makeover: Uncover Your Past, Take Charge of Your Future

What if you could remember every single day of your life? What if, just by thinking of any day in your past, you could recall not only the details and facts of what happened, but also experience the emotions as well? Would it be a blessing or a curse?

Called Highly Superior Autobiographical Memory (HSAM) this ability is rare indeed. As recently chronicled on CBS' 60 Minutes, and other national news programs, Marilu Henner is, to date, one of only twelve documented people in the world who have this aptitude. With research into conditions such as Alzheimer's Disease so vital today, doctors and scientists are intensely studying this amazing phenomenon as a unique window into how the brain works. Although Marilu was born with this gift, she has actively and consciously worked to build her memory skills (like working a muscle) and now she teaches others to do the same.

According to Marilu, we all have the same amnesia when it comes to things like food, work, consumer credit, exercise, and bad relationships, to name a few. By not utilizing our memories to their potential, we are destined to repeat behaviors that prevent us from living our best lives. Conversely, we also tend not to remember our successes, making us less likely to repeat the positive experiences.

In this enlightening and fun presentation, Marilu teaches you how to take in information, store it, and access it for later, all with the aim to improve the quality of life in all areas. Her tools help you break old patterns and move forward, putting you in control of your future.

Even if you can't remember what you had for lunch yesterday, Marilu shows you that it's never too late to access an unforgettable life…..YOURS!
