Apologies for the sirens! This rarely happens until the day you want to shoot a video! Lol!
Throughout history, humans have made the once "impossible", possible - from electricity, to airplane flight, to cell phones, to open heart surgery - impossible dreams have become day-to-day conveniences of the modern world. And, it is all the result of DREAMING! Someone thought of an idea, believed in that idea, and took action to make it happen.
Kids learn that no one can make their dreams come true except for them. In these 8 sessions, kids learn a three-step process for creating a life of their dreams. They create a vision for their lives, learn how to use goal-setting to take action on their vision and learn how to use the Law of Attraction tools of visualization, affirmations, and gratitude to "program" their mind for success. Kids learn how to make their dreams come true through their own personal power.
First Session: October 12 - November 2, 2019
October 12, 2019 - Power of Possibility and What It Means for YOU
Belief systems shape what kids see as possible for their lives. Kids who don't believe in themselves or who don't think their dreams are possible will whittle down their dreams to fit their current circumstances. Learning how to develop a belief system based on possibilities will help kids bust outside of their comfort zone, create courage, and go for it in life - even when there is no evidence that they will be successful. I share the story Power of Possibility and help kids learn that they achieve what they believe.
October 19, 2019 - How to Break Through Dream Destroyers
Sometimes kids think that certain things must be in place before they can do something. For example, "If I were taller then I'll try out for the basketball team". This "if...then" thinking is called conditional thinking and it destroys dreams. In this lesson, kids learn that conditional thinking steals their power as they become a victim of their circumstances and limiting beliefs. They learn how to break through conditional thinking and go for their dreams. I share the story If Then Ben Part 1 and also tie in the learning from Session 1 about looking for possibilities.
October 26, 2019 - Using Visualization to Dream Big and Make it Happen
In this session, kids learn the importance of setting a vision for their lives so they don't drift through life. They learn the importance of dreaming big and to not let circumstances determine what they want in life. I share the story A Tale of Two Voyages and children get to create their own vision statement and vision board.
November 2, 2019 - Goal Setting - Create a Path for Your Dreams
Kids learn that making their dreams come true involves much more than a vision board - they must take ACTION as well. They learn how to break their goals into tasks and how to track their process using both a list method and a calendar method. Children learn how to handle disappointment if they don't reach their goals and to celebrate success and enjoy their journey along the way. Kids learn that when they plan their goals they plan their success. We'll also introduce MindMapping and kids will create their own MindMap.
Second Session: November 16 - December 14, 2019
November 16, 2019 - The Attraction of Law of Attraction - Using Action and Attraction to Manifest Your Goals
In this session, kids are introduced to the power of the Law of Attraction through the story Turning Off the Grungie Channel. Kids learn about the benefits of positive thinking and positive energy and are introduced to the tools of visualization, affirmations, and gratitude to "train the brain" for success. Kids will work on ten things they would like to attract into their lives.
November 23, 2019 - What's the RAS? (Reticular Activating System) and Visualization - How Winning in Your Mind Creates Winning in Life
Kids learn all about the power of visualization. Visualization is the process of imagining yourself in the future already achieved your goal. Scientific research has proven that your mind cannot tell the difference between an experience you imagine and an experience that is real. When you use visualization to practice success in your mind, you develop strong neural pathways to prepare your mind to succeed. Visualization is a very powerful skill for helping kids manage change, move through fear, and pick themselves up after facing a disappointment or failure. I share the story I Hope Holly Helps Herself to help kids learn about the power of visualization.
December 7, 2019 - Why What You Say to Yourself is Important
This session uses the story It Ain't Happen Harry Learns Affirmations to help kids learn another powerful tool for training their brain for success. Affirmations are very powerful tools for "programming" both your conscious mind and your subconscious mind to achieve your goals and can also be used "reprogram" negative belief systems. Whereas visualization creates neural pathways and stimulates your RAS (Reticular Activating System) using visual input, affirmations do the same thing using audio input. When used together visualization and affirmations prepare you to create magic in your life. Children have a chance to create their own affirmations and practice, practice, and practice!
December 14, 2019 - Gratitude - How to Use a Beam of Gratitude to Unlock Your Heart
In this last session, kids learn to shift their energy from "wanting" to receiving by using gratitude. Gratitude is a powerful tool for shifting your mood and creating happiness. When kids practice feeling thankful and appreciation in their lives it becomes a powerful tool for achieving their goals. In fact, research has shown that people who develop a daily practice of gratitude live happier lives. In the story, Gotta Have Gary Learns Gratitude children learn how to develop an attitude of gratitude and participate in an impactful activity creating a gratitude scale.
