In the last post I suggested that there are beliefs that you can change about your ability to remember things. Essentially all you need to do to change a belief that you can't is to replace if with a belief that you can. Every time you think "I don't have a good memory" or "I am a week away from Alzheimer's" you can catch yourself and think a replacement thought, such as " I can remember things when I learn the techniques" or "How do I know what will happen in a week, I could be smarter in a week", with enough practice, you will believe in yourself.
