Focus 2 Achieve

Innovate Create Educate

I blog on Brain-Based Learning, Metacognition, and Social-Emotional Learning. I am the author of "Crush School: Every Student's Guide To Killing It In The Classroom" which is a book that helps students understand how their brain processes information and learns. In the book, I explain why students can learn anything and give strategies on how to learn effectively.

Chapter 2 is about the importance of growth mindset in learning. Here's an excerpt:

If you tell yourself that you can’t do something before you try it, you will sure enough fail at it. This is because you’re communicating to your brain that something is impossible. In return, your brain believes you and does everything in its power to prove you correct. It sabotages your progress!
