WIN AT SCHOOL

Millions of USA students enroll in schools across the continent in September with the hope of winning!  Unfortunately, far too many will lose the battle to win.

Questions:

  • Why so many failures?
  • Why does one Spokane area school district have 24% absenteeism each day?
  • What makes many students say their high school experience was a joke, and, for that matter, why do some teachers and retired superintendents agree with these students?
  • Can some of the “haves” students help the “have-not’s” students find meaning and purpose in their school experience?

Candidly, I have no answer for the macro solution to these school problems.  Over fifty years of experience gives me the confidence to suggest this micro counsel for individuals one student at a time. Here are my prime recommendations.

  • Train a student to know the WHY school is valuable and write a meaningful purpose statement.
  • Develop a crystal-clear HOW to-win-at-school statement.
  • Compose a self-made report card the first week of classes to use as GOAL-SETTING.
  • Create an I AM list to read daily:

                1)  I am a winner.

                2)  I am enjoying working hard on school assignments.

                3)  I am intelligent.

                4)  I am a lover of learning.

  • Choose to be popular with OTHER STUDENTS who have purpose in school.
  • Find A MENTOR who has PTR (proven track record) and is WOBI (worthy of being imitated).

If you think you can, you can!  If you think you can’t, you can’t!
