55 Flares Filament.io 55 Flares ×

Whether you are an ambitious student or someone who wants to evolve their learning strategy for business or leisure purposes, Photoreading can provide a fun and alternative way to accelerate your learning. With so many books available on the market (for any given subject) it is common to feel overwhelmed with projects which require high volumes of reading.

So how can we have enough time and energy to read them all? The good news is that anyone can learn how to Photoread up to 25,000 words per minute (a page per second), whilst improving intellectual confidence and having fun.

So in this video I share with you:

1) My personal story for how Photoreading changed my life

2) How Photoreading works and a demonstration of the 5 step process

So press the play button to learn more :)

 

Interesting facts about the 5 step Photoreading Strategy

On average people use 10% of their brains for their daily activities. Photoreading can help you tap into the other 90%.Children naturally use strategies of accelerative learning, especially between the ages of 1-7 as their brains behave like sponges because the rational mind has not fully developed. It is believed (through scientific research) that the genius capacity of a child normally depreciates as they get older. This is based on the theory that the elementary learning styles do not best support creative and intuitive strengths.In the martial world the soft focused vision state is used in combat. Bruce Lee apparently described his combat technique as ‘diffused attention within his book ’The Tao of Jeet Kune Do’.

The benefits of Photoreading

  • Extract ideas more efficiently
  • Avoid reading books that do not serve you
  • Read ebooks faster
  • Develop intuition
  • Boost creativity
  • Increase job prospects & potential for earning more
  • Build intellectual confidence for presentations
  • Easy to use on a daily basis. Plus a lot more……….

Answers to questions you may have

Photoreading does not have to replace regular reading as there will be material such as a novel, for which you may prefer to use the regular style of reading. I discovered Photoreading has enabled me to process and understand information three or more times faster even when I use the regular style of reading. For example, when I read “The Magician’s Way: What It Really Takes to Find Your Treasure” by William Whitecloud with Photoreading I decided to pick out the key lessons of the story. One day I shall read the novel normally to feel the emotions of the story. By the way I think it’s one of the best self-help books ever written, especially in terms of developing life flow. PhotoReading is great for nonfiction books where the goal is simply to extract the ideas that are important to you. In that case, the sooner you can extract and apply those ideas, the better. It can also be used for technical manuals.

How you can learn this life changing skill

You can learn how to Photoread within a few days with the right practitioner. Perform a Google search to find your local trainer. You can learn more about Photoreading and check out the popular online training course from the Paul Scheele’s Learning Strategies Corporation website. If you are UK based I can personally recommend the Nlpacademy centre which is where I undertook the training. They currently have a discounted offer if you book early so you can save £150 off the normal asking price (which is amazing). Also you can retake the course (anytime) for a third of the price. Go to Nlpacademy.co.uk to signup and please mention that I (Paul Grout) referred you as a fair exchange :)

    Wow… I’d love to learn this! It’d be so helpful in getting through more material. I’m going to try it on my own first, using these steps, to see what it’s like. I often have a hard time shutting off my noisy left brain, so it may be a challenge to get into that relaxed, receptive state. But I was able to see the finger ‘sausage’ effect and imagine the tangerine, so perhaps I’m on my way! Wish me luck! :-)

      Hi Mary, I am glad you are inspired to learn the strategy. What I find is that Photoreading evolves through practice. The process has also allowed me to work more productivity whilst being relaxed. As it’s a state dependent activity the practice itself has a vast amount of benefits. Also I am finding myself going into expanded awareness almost automatically which helps maintain a clear focus to absorb information of any experience. Paul Scheele has combined processes that effectively allow the whole mind to be utilized in a productive way. Enjoy and ask me questions anytime.

    This is really interesting, Paul. It reminds me of SpeedReading but I think uses a different area of the mind, the subconscious mind. I wonder if that’s what we do to a primitive extent when we’re in a bookstore, scanning for titles, reviewing the TOC, the index, the chapters, images, callouts, to quickly determine if this book will meet our needs. A new concept for me so thank you for sharing!

      Hi Laurie, yes I believe you are right. Even before I took the photoreading course on I discovered that we can intuitively locate information from a book we have read at an earlier time (even years before). There has been occasions when I picked a book up intuitively to find the answer to what I straight away. Photoreading actually advances this ability even more.

    This is so fascinating Paul! I love reading but I have so many books I want to read that I never end up reading them because I’m so overwhelmed. I’m going to pick one of the books on my list and try this. Thanks for sharing!

      Hi Melissa, thank you. The main reason why I decided to learn the 5 step process was to overcome the feeling of overwhelm. With so many books and the vast amount of online material we need all the resource we can to aid our journeys. I would certainly recommend you to find out more about the course, as it will bring many wonderful gifts :)

    I was wondering if you had any specific feedback for people attempting to learn large amounts of technical information. I really like the video and I’m trying to figure out a way to practice because this is HUGELY necessary for me!

      Hi Terry, the best way to learn the practice is to attend a workshop with a Photoreading Practitioner. Alternatively you can purchase the online training from Paul Scheele’s website (links above). I found that there is no substitute for learning the process with an expert. You can find some useful links above or google for your local practitioner. It’s worthwhile and takes a few days (normally over the weekend) to get to grips with the practice. It will give a lot in return if used frequently. Good luck Terry and thank you for dropping by.
