OptimaLearning: Going Beyond the Limits

Release the Hidden Powers of Your Mind for Peak
Achievement In Professional and Personal Life!

Description:Recent studies throughout the world clearly show that the mind is capable of performing extraordinary feats—both intellectual and physical. Most people, however, use a very small part of their brain/mind potential states Ivan Barzakov, Ph.D., who created OptimaLearning, an internationally acclaimed accelerated learning system. Imagine how your life would improve if you could tap this tremendous resource.

In his speech, Dr. Barzakov brings alive the incredible story of his own super achievement: a death-defying escape to freedom across a stormy Adriatic Sea. Spellbound, the audience follows his seven-mile swim in treacherous, shark infested water through lightning and earthquake. "I was never an athlete, just an average swimmer and not even in the best of health," comments Barzakov. Once in America, the man who risked everything became a leader in accelerated learning and optimum performance.

A highly entertaining and inspirational speaker, Barzakov leads a participatory demonstration to illustrate how anyone can access the hidden source of inner strength and self-determination. He draws from business and sports success stories to reveal the power of mental concentration. Dr. Barzakov also provides simple and effective strategies for achieving optimum concentration in order to excel in both professional and personal life.

In another demonstration, the presenter guides the participants to experience the effect of instant memorization without gimmicks—an assimilation of new information at a phenomenal rate with excellent retention.

Most importantly perhaps, the creator of OptimaLearning shares with his audience the rare skill of how to use these "hidden powers" to transform a situation of utmost crisis (such as loss of business, family, home, or unplanned career change) into a generator of success.
