The Gifts that Conflict with School™

 

Ever feel as if school is not– or was not– quite the right fit for you? Are you not a top student? Chances are you have one or more of what I call, “The Gifts that Conflict with School.™ ”

What do I mean by this? I mean the very things that are best in you– that offer you tremendous potential in life– may be in conflict with what is asked of you in school. So what does this mean for you? It means that if you want to bring out your full potential, if you want to thrive in life, if you want to be happier now, then you want to worry less about grades and enjoy your innate abilities more. Sometimes we are taught to believe what I call, “The Myths of Education.” If you want to be happier (and smart), choose a different set of beliefs.

Here’s what I believe: I believe there is nothing wrong with you (or your child), no matter how you do in school. I believe you were born to thrive in life and if you focus on finding the beauty in yourself (and those you love), if you focus on pursuing things that interest and excite you, you are already using your gifts and strengths– even if you cannot yet name them.

In the next few months, I will be offering an assessment and related training to help you identify, use, and work with students who have Gifts that Conflict with School.™ If you’d like to be notified, just sign up for my email list.
