Capacity is the mental facility or
power to produce, perform, or deploy with the use of your mind,
your reason or rational intelligence in a variety of ways. It is
important for you as an individual to enhance your mental prowess and health to the extreme.
components that make up your mental capacity is: short and long
term memory, your education - which is not just what you
remember and know, but what you can do as well... i.e. various
skills picked up through out ones life. How broad and deep
your education is does much to affect your mental capacity. It
it to every persons' advantage to acquire the best education
they can get.
A good base in
mathematics and various branches of science along with writing
and grammar and various disciplines on logic and other methods
of inquiry is a necessity.
mental capacity can make or break any or every other endeavor in
your life. For example High School dropouts as a rule make far
less money than people who graduate High School and of course
those with college degrees make more and people with degrees in
certain fields will likely make more than most, such as someone
with an engineering degree.
important not only for an individual to increase their mental
capacity for their own sake, but, for any individual who desires
to be as effective as they can for their family or community,

To give you an
example as to why this is important, it has been consistenly
shown that people with higher intelligence that achieve great

more likely to create new innovations, enjoy greater health,
have a wider selection of sex partners or potential mates and
have more stable relationships and family.

been noted that people with higher Mental Capacity tend to raise
children who also will be more likely to become successful in
It does take
disciple to achieve high mental capacity for some people,
however, once again, their is no downside to be had for anyone
working towards this goal and the entire task can be mostly if
not all pleasure when done in the company of like minded friends
and family or at least from the encouragement from those in your
life that matter.
In closing I
want to mention that the most common excuses that people give
for not achieving optimal mental performance is; I am
emotionally overwhelmed - low emotional capacity; I don't have
the energy or my poor health is keeping me back - low physical
capacity; I don't know the right people to participate with, or
my friends and family or my employer is getting in the way - Low
social & political capacity; I don't have the money, I can't
afford it - low financial capacity; and lastly, I don't have the
time - which is most often affected directly by lack of finances
or perhaps their other capacities are courting bankruptcy.
This is why
the capacities for each of the other areas of your life must be
