SOME KIDS ARE CHOOSING THEIR END OF YEAR SCHOOL RESULTS NOW!
The Mastery Club, by award-winning Melbourne author, Liliane Grace, is encouraging students to decide their end-of-year results RIGHT NOW, and to do so by taking advantage of principles practised in sports psychology for years.
Athletes visualise and mentally rehearse the behaviours they want to produce, and school students can use the same strategies to improve their end-of-year results, enhance friendships, develop new skills and attract new opportunities.
Most people think good school marks are the result of hard work, but the truth is that hard work is not the only key ingredient.
This novel for adolescents draws on timeless philosophies about the creative power of the mind as well as insights gleaned from quantum physics. It inspires young people to take responsibility for their lives by applying a number of simple strategies.
"Powerful ideas are expressed with utter simplicity."
- Sunday Star Times, New Zealand, Sept 2007.

“You know, they really teach the school year backward,” he said, offering the chocolates again. “It would be much more useful if you kids decided your end of year results at the beginning of the year.”
I looked at him doubtfully. “What do you mean?”
“What a cool idea!” Nina interrupted enthusiastically. “Instead of hoping and wishing, you visualise what you want from the start. You could plan on straight As if you wanted to.”
