I believe in a world where teachers feel like rock stars!
I have been using mindset “tricks” to reach my goals since 2nd grade. As a wee 7 year old, I overheard from a very adult conversation that you can learn fast if you fall asleep listening to what you want to learn.
So, I used my coveted walkman to record myself stating my addition homework and hoped the “shortcut” would pay off as I drifted off to sleep.
To this day, I am still fascinated with leveraging our brains to achieve success. Thankfully, I refined my approach and have learned a few things since the 2nd grade.
