[52 Life Lessons] #8 My Mantra...What I tell myself

This is part of an email series called 52 Life Lessons that you can access anytime. One email. Each Monday. 52 Weeks. Simple. Powerful. Full of intention to help you grow, heal, enjoy life…and possible even transform a bit.

The best thing I can share with you, as we dive into our second month together, is my personal mantra.

A mantra I just started this year, at the time of writing these 52 Life Lessons and it all stemmed from an amazing book I read.

A book I’ll share below.

My new mantra is simple. It’s three words. It’s powerful. And it’s life-changing.

[PART 3] How To Run A Tutoring Session For Maximum Results: Jill's P.O.P. METHOD

In Step 1 of the P.O.P. Method, we discovered just how important the PERSON is who sits in front of you during a tutoring session.

In Step 2 of the P.O.P. Method, we went over how important OPPORTUNITY is and just how impactful it can be in opening up new avenues for learning life skills.

And that leads us to Step 3 and the final “P” in P.O.P. - and that’s PURPOSE.

So, without further ado, let’s jump in with both feet and get you popping!

This is the second part in a series of three. For step one, click on over to this post now.

Let’s have a little recap before we dive into the Second Step of the P.O.P. Method that has played a huge role in taking me from tutoring hobbyist to rocking a multiple 6-figure income…yep, tutoring kids!

P.O.P. stands for PERSON, OPPORTUNITY and PURPOSE.

It’s a simple method I have used over and over during each tutoring session whether it’s with one student at a time or a group of kids.

P.O.P. doesn’t stand for quizzes anymore.

In fact, as a former teacher, I really never liked POP Quizzes. They seemed to be sneaky things meant to make sure one did one’s work. And not really a method to determine true understanding or mastery of knowledge.

I mean really, is there a boss out there (if I’m preparing students for the real world, a boss is what they will encounter) who will give a POP Quiz?

I think not.

What I Learned Taking a Year End Inventory of Me

What I Learned Taking a Year End Inventory of Me

Sometimes we must look back so that we can celebrate wins that we wouldn’t otherwise bother to notice and see what improvements could have been made. I think this process of a Year-End Self-Inventory is powerful, telling and vital for my growth.

I have so much more to give than I’ve been giving. I’ve been playing small.

When I want to say “shameful” to the above comment or statement of fact, which is not a criticism of myself but a truth, I realize I have work to do on my inner game.

I think I’ll start with naming her.

Why You Might Dislike Texting and the #Hashtag Life (#youbetrippin)

Why You Might Dislike Texting and the #Hashtag Life (#youbetrippin)

I resisted for years.

I refused to be involved in the degradation of the written word.

Not because I’m wordy, though as a writer I guess I kind of am, as a teacher, should be, right?

No, it mattered, because to me words have power. And words are so often misunderstood in their unappreciated form, like via text. Let’s just say that texting seemed prone to misunderstanding or miscommunication amplified, to me.

Warning: A tad bit of adult language within.

[6-Figure Excerpt] My Dad’s A Lawyer (A Tale From The Classroom)

This story is an excerpt taken from Jill’s coming book: How To Go From Broke To 6-Figures Teaching Kids While Making A Huge Difference. Enjoy.

I had a student who once told me, “You can’t say that to me. My dad’s a lawyer. I’ll sue you!”

My response before I could censor myself was to laugh and say, “I’m a teacher. Sue away. I don’t make anything.”

And literally, that was the honest truth. The only thing he could have, gladly, was my growing mound of student debt.

PART 2: What Losing Myself Looked Like

PART 2: What Losing Myself Looked Like

What Losing Myself Looked Like is a two part series on depression and what it looked like for me. To start at the beginning, head to Part 1 right now.

Depression is a serious topic and affects way to many of us, often way too young. My intention here is that each and every word written here has a positive impact for you or someone you know.

Maybe we all lose ourselves at some point on this journey called life.

Maybe we all lose ourselves at some point on this journey called life.

Well, my time of losing me was recent and, well, very real. It was hard, depressing and worth talking about because at times I felt so alone. As though I was slowly losing my mind as well as what made me me.

[52 Life Lessons] #4 Journaling should be a life requirement

I’ve already mentioned how important writing your thoughts down will be during these 52 Life Lessons. But writing or journaling is point blank the best thing you can do for yourself.

Seriously, I sound like a broken record and yes, I am also naturally a writer, so you might be thinking Yeah, this is easy for her.

But it’s not.

Not always.
