Most teenagers are unaware that they create their reality through their thinking.
When unconscious thoughts become an uncomfortable reality, it is desirable to change that reality by changing one's thinking. But first the teenager must become aware and agree on these points:
The technique that I share in this chapter from "The Coach in the Classroom" engages the strength of the class's internal relationships to leverage the learning from the strongest member of the class.
The aim of the talk is to demonstrate to a roomful of teenagers:
Chapter 2 - Attitude makes a difference
Chapter 1 - Inspiring teenagers
You are standing in front of a roomful of teenagers to tell your life/work story in an inspiring, encouraging and motivating way. Ready? GO!
I have also included the students' feedback. I always ask for feedback - that's how I learn.
Asking for reviews was a great idea, until the reviews came back.
Half of the reviewers loved the book, the other half didn't.
What to do? Listen to those who didn't love the book and ask what could be changed, of course.
Oddly enough, the first point was the most difficult to accept because the book would become so different, The other two were easier. Anthony's back story was easy and fun to write. The dialogues were more of a challenge since there were so many. Once I got started though, I found that I had plenty of dialogues in me, and they made a strong positive difference to the whole book.
Well done reviewers!
Well done ME!
