CHECK YOURSELF 0ut.

If you find that you are trying to get other people to support something that you’ve done or to support you because of something that you feel has happened to you, observe yourself.

Are you feeling guilty in some way? Are you feeling hurt?

Up to this point, your perspective is coming from a place inside you where there could be a past hurt. Look for it.

IT HAS BEEN SAID THAT WE ARE products of our pasts. And while this is true, we often let our focus take root in the negative aspects of someone’s nature without even giving them a chance to get up to bat.

How many times have we refused to give someone a chance because we’ve heard about their past before we have even met them? Sometimes we meet them, like them and then find out about their past. If their past was negative in some way, we may abandon any form of a relationships without taking any more time to know them.

OFTEN, WE TRY to carry someone else’s pain.

Why? Because we genuinely care. It is rough to see someone you care for going through a difficult time. Yet you can be supportive, loving, and nurturing and still allow people to do what they need to do. (Sometimes, their experience is a lesson for us as well.)

We may have to go so far as to intervene to save someone’s life. But beyond getting a person to safety, we must allow each person to do his own healing.

BEHAVIOR IS AN ILLUSION. Behavior is a picture a person paints of what it is he believes to be the truth about himself. Every one of us has within us the potential to be, do and have what our hearts desire. We must be willing to do whatever it takes to make this happen. We must see ourselves in a different way and affirm what we want this to look like.

Reverse the negative aspects of yourself in the picture you want to create. Affirm the reverse of what appears to be the truth about yourself right now. If your original picture portrayed you as rebellious, lazy and good-for-nothing, the reverse would be agreeable, active and worthwhile.

5-Week STRONG FINISH CHALLENGE
My Unconventional Approach to Accelerating Learning

Hey there, fellow difference makers!

I know you’re out there doing everything in your power to make a positive impact on your students’ lives. But let’s face it, sometimes it seems that no matter how hard you try, certain kids just don’t seem to want to get along and play nice, right?

That’s why I’m thrilled to introduce my STRONG FINISH CHALLENGE! Over the next five weeks, I’m going to share my unconventional, yet effective approach to accelerating learning and creating a more harmonious classroom environment. And trust me, this has been field-tested extensively, so it can work when you work it.

Now, I get it. You may be thinking, “Is it really possible to reach and teach every single student in my class?”

The answer is a resounding YES! And the best part? You’ll still have energy and a life at the end of the day.

So, who is this challenge for? Well, if you’re giving it your all but still coming up short with a few students, this is for you. And if you’re feeling de-energized by the state of affairs in today’s classrooms, societies, and homes, you’re not alone. This challenge is here to give you the boost you need.

Maybe you’re worried about your job security based on achievement test scores, or perhaps you’re just feeling burned out and ready to throw in the towel. Whatever the case may be, this challenge is designed to help you turn things around.

I’m not going to sugarcoat it. Working with today’s youth takes determination and is truly satisfying work. And while you may have learned new techniques that work with most of your students, there are still some who struggle.

But here’s the thing – it’s not a matter of finding better tools;

It’s an energetics issue!

By the end of this 5-week training, you’ll feel a renewed sense of confidence and energy. You’ll understand that the vibes you’ve been picking up on are real and are impacting every single student’s academic achievement. And most importantly, you’ll learn how to remedy even the most explosive or covert situations with my 30-Second Turnarounds.

I can’t wait to show you how my simple yet unconventional approach can help you reach kids where others can’t. It doesn’t matter what kind of behavior or learning style you’re dealing with. This method works for everyone, and anyone with the willingness to be willing can do it.

So, if you’re ready to set the tone of your classroom and create a more inclusive, compassionate, and kind environment, join me for the STRONG FINISH CHALLENGE! Let’s work together to turn things around and finish the school year on a high note. You’ve got this!

Let’s begin …

YOUR CHALLENGE should you decide to accept it is to reach and teach
1-3 students you have not been able to reach and teach this school year!

 

After watching this first video today’s 30-Second TurnAround is to …

First: think of 1-3 students or an adults you are having the most problem with.

Second: think about how you’d prefer that it be between you and them.

Just hold those two thoughts as we go through the training over the next 5 weeks. Because by the end of the training in this challenge, you’re going to have a new experience and a new understanding, and a new tool to deal with these kinds of situations.

The next thing is that if you have any questions during the training, just jot them down and send them to me here and I will respond.

With that said, I just want you to know that I know it’s a big claim to say that you can in fact accelerate learning in every single student, and still have energy and a life at the end of the day.

All the more reason for you to keep coming back week after week for each new video OR better yet, if you can’t wait you can go get the full training here … Grab a cup of jo and go do this free Challenge as a 2-Hour Sprint right here right now!

Finding Hope in the Midst of Midyear Burnout Blues:

Finding Hope in the Midst of Midyear Burnout Blues:

 

My Journey as a Teacher

I must admit, it can be disheartening to feel like you’re doing everything right as a teacher, but still not getting the results you had hoped for halfway through the school year.

However, instead of feeling defeated, I’m challenging you today to take a step back and do my Victim to Victor written exercise.

One thing I’ve realized is that taking care of myself and finding a balance is crucial for being an effective teacher. I can’t give from an empty cup, and it’s okay to prioritize my own well-being and happiness.

Victim to Victor

Here is my 30 Second TurnAround exercise I came up with years ago to help me navigate the midyear burnout blues and reignite my light and my life:

Grab a piece of paper and write down:

“If I were a victim in this situation I find myself in I would _____________.”

Next, fill in the blank with, “If I weren’t a victim, I would ______________.”

 

 

In about 30 seconds of filling in these two blanks, you’ll know what you need to know.

 

Maybe you’ll realize that you’ve been feeling like a victim of the situation, and it’s time to shift your mindset.

Perhaps you’ll recognize that you have the power to make changes and take control of your own happiness and well-being.

It’s a simple exercise, but it can be eye-opening.

Now, let me say this: I know that finding the energy and motivation to reignite your light can feel daunting. It’s easy to feel like you’re stuck in a never-ending cycle of burnout, especially when you have so much on your plate.

But the good news is that there are ways to make a change without completely overhauling your life.

First and foremost, give yourself permission to take a step back and prioritize self-care. It’s okay to take a break and recharge your batteries.

Remember, you can’t pour from an empty cup, and taking care of yourself is essential for being the best teacher you can be.

Next, consider seeking support from fellow educators.

You’re not alone in feeling the weight of midyear burnout, and sharing your struggles with others can provide a sense of camaraderie and understanding.

Lean on your colleagues for support and brainstorm ways to create a more positive and inclusive classroom environment.

Finally, don’t be afraid to reassess your approach to teaching.

It’s okay to pivot and try new strategies to engage your students and foster a sense of kindness and compassion in the classroom.

Small changes can make a big difference,
and it’s never too late to shake things up.

So, if midyear burnout has got you feeling like your light has dimmed, remember that you have the power to reignite it.

Take a moment to reflect on your mindset, prioritize self-care, seek support and consider making changes to your approach.

You’ve got this!

And remember, your well-being matters just as much as your students’ success. If your light has dimmed because of so much struggle, then take just 30 seconds and do this little exercise.

Embrace Your Greatness and Watch the Magic Happen!

 

We’re halfway through the school year, and I know you’re doing all the right things to create a positive and inclusive classroom and home environment.

But sometimes it feels like no matter what you do, the results just aren’t coming together.

I get it, and I’m here to tell you that there’s a solution. And it’s not going to require you to work 80+ hours a week with no energy left for your life or your family.

So, what’s today’s 30 Second TurnAround?

It’s all about acknowledging greatness. And guess what?

The greatness I’m talking about is yours.

You see, as soon as you stand up straight, put your shoulders back, take a big deep breath and act like you know who you are, your energy improves. It literally takes 30 seconds or less to turn a funk into a “I’m gonna be OK today” mindset.

I know time management is a challenge for all of us, but here’s the secret: acknowledging greatness doesn’t require hours of dedicated effort.

It’s about those little, impactful moments when we acknowledge greatness in another person that can transform lives.

So, celebrate your victories, cherish the small moments and watch as your own energy soars high.

It will be the best 30-Second TurnAround you can give.

If you haven’t already, go watch my Reignite Your Light Lesson 1: Part 2 training on how you can help a group of people step more fully into greatness. Discover how you can make personal acknowledgment a driving force in your life and the lives of those you lead.

Together, let’s create a world where acknowledging greatness becomes a reflex and fuels us to reach new heights.

And remember, greatness is everyone’s innate gift. There is enough greatness in every single person. Replace envy with your own dreams, determination and action.

Let’s make it our business to create a work environment where successes are cheered and celebrated, and where every single individual knows the soothing fulfillment that feeling truly happy for others brings.

So, let’s join forces to create a world where acknowledging greatness in ourselves and each other is a reflex that fuels us all to reach new heights!

Experience the joy of personal acknowledgment firsthand and become a catalyst for change. Because when it comes down to it, the world needs more of your greatness. And it’s time to start owning it and spreading it around.

Here’s to acknowledging and celebrating greatness in yourself and those around you.

Here’s to turning things around in just 30 seconds.

Here’s to creating a world full of greatness.

Let’s do this!
