Randy Pausch, in his last lecture, said, “…Brick walls are there for a reason: they are there to prove how badly we want something…” “…A wall is not necessarily created to stop you, but rather to stop the people who don’t want something as much as you do.”
Growing up with multiple learning disabilities, I developed a very intimate relationship with the “wall.” The wall often was created by others’ beliefs. “You can’t do that! You aren’t old enough! You’ll never accomplish what you are attempting! You’re not smart enough!” I also created a “wall” when I believed the limited thinking of others; however, when I discovered their beliefs weren’t necessarily true, I was able to dissolve the wall, and find my own way to success.
So if you ever encounter the wall, ask yourself, “Is this wall here to stop me? Or is this wall here to stop those who don’t want this as much as I do?” If the wall isn’t for you, then take the time to explore a different approach and realize that in the process you will probably discover more about life, your beliefs, and yourself.
The I Create What I Believe! Program came into being because I saw that many parents and teachers didn’t understand how to help their child or student discover, embrace, and find delight in their own unique learning style. I saw instead many children who thought they were “less than” rather then realizing the amazing gifts they possessed because of their unique learning style.
With this in mind, I invite you to explore some of the FREE ICWIB art activities and videos because they are a wonderful way to discover how to master your uniquely wired mind.
Since the ICWIB program has repeatedly demonstrated its ability to help even young children reduce stress, release bottled-up emotions, resolve internal conflict, and place their mind in a learning ready state, I think it should be available to any teacher who wants to actively use it in his or her classroom regardless of their ability to pay for the training.
