Bob scored a B+ on his advanced placement exam. He was able to earn 4 graduate credits in less than 8 hours for a total of .00. He not only saved thousands of dollars in tuition fees, he also saved about four months of intense work. This is how speed reading helped Bob in an everyday situation. Think about how it can help you.
James shunned away from me even at lunchtime. I thought he would grow up as a man with his own mind. I told him to roam around and help me find Beam. Instead, he stayed put. Reverse Psychology. Of course! I eventually won the cute one over.
Can your child suffer ill effects from too little physical activity? Yes! An inactive childhood not only hinders the social and emotional development of your child, but the cognitive development, as well.
Many Christians will say that God sends us trials to test us. And there might be some truth in that. Many of us are stronger than we think, and it takes difficult challenges to make this clear. But I didn’t think this applied to my uncle — he has had many challenges over the course of his life, and I think he has a good handle on his own strengths.
For many years, as people started a speed-reading program, I gave them a short questionnaire asking them: What do you believe about your ability to learn? What do you believe about your ability to learn in an accelerated fashion? Invariably, if someone was struggling with the skills, I looked at what they wrote, and of course, those questions were answered with negative beliefs. They were creating the results they believed to be true before they started their training.
Data from the 2007 National Diabetes Fact Sheet (most recent information available) states that 23.6 million children and adults which is almost 8 % of our population have diabetes. It is estimated that 57 million are pre-diabetic and there are 1.6 million new cases in people over 20 every year. In our young people, 186,000 have diabetes. One in every 400 to 600 educational psychology has Type 1 diabetes. This is not ok. This is a national crisis now and a greater health crisis in the future if we don’t get it under control. Our health is not getting better. We are just living longer with drugs. These figures do not show a healthy quality of life. They are death statistics in the making.
We have so many problem finders. We need more problem solvers. It’s just a matter of how you look at it. The negative and the positive approach. It is so easy for so many to sit back and say, “whoa as me”. Those are the negative peoples that fall deeper and deeper into failure.
