Four powerful tips on how to decide your end-of-year results now! (and amaze your teachers, parents and friends)
Melbourne – Feb 10, 2010 – A Melbourne author's fictional novel is showing teens and pre-teens how to determine the results they want in their lives now.
“Don’t wait until the end of the year to see how you’re going – decide what you want to achieve now,” says Liliane Grace, author of The Mastery Club, a novel about five school students who form a club for the purpose of supporting each other in achieving their goals and dreams. “If you decide your end of year results now and visualise yourself achieving them, your brain will orchestrate events so you realise that possibility.”
This is not a magic pill, however; some degree of understanding and commitment is required. For instance:
* Numerous scientific studies have demonstrated that the brain doesn’t know the difference between real and imagined. If you visit just some of the research into mental rehearsal (eg. http://www.breakthroughbasketball.com/mental/visualization.html and the work of Dr Joe Dispenza, author of Evolve Your Brain - The Science of Changing Your Mind), you will begin to trust your amazing brain far more than you ever have before…
* The brain works in pictures, so repeatedly dwelling on an image of your report card with the marks and comments you’d like to see there, will form stronger pathways in your brain and help you to form more useful, aligned habits. (Explore here to view two clips about primary aged students who applied visualization to achieve some of their educational goals.)
* A Dominican University Study found that goal-setters who wrote down their goal, shared it with a friend, developed an action plan, and submitted a progress report did far better than those who merely thought about their goals. This is the essence of a Mastery Club, so find yourself a buddy or start a Mastery Club yourself, and help each other stay on track. (If you’d like to read comments from some teenagers who formed such a Club or were inspired just by reading the book, please explore here.)
* Persistence and patience are essential. Don’t give up after one try – keep at it. You are rewiring your brain, which scientists now know is possible (see The Brain that Changes Itself by Norman Doidge and Dr Dispenza’s book), and that takes time.
