The LUCKY DOG

The LUCKY DOG
(Going from a FIXED to a
GROWTH MINDSET -
From HOMELESS to a HOME!)

Rescued from the streets
He learned many chaotic survival techniques
Unlike those of his peers
To get his needs met

Being normalized for a time
With an introduction to EASE 
Our friend stops devising ways to
Get his needs and preferences met
And, has confidence and trust restored

Someone has LISTENED,
He is HEARD and TAKEN SERIOUSLY
He has become a PLAYER in the GAME
Someone that he respects
Has turned the tables on him
He is NOW respected!

His life has been changed
He’s APPRECIATED and APPRECIATES
He has befriended his Goliath!
He’s able to stand ALONE (NOT lonely)
AND, he NOW KNOWs that

The SKY IS THE LIMIT!

Growth Mindset vs. Fixed Mindset RAP!


GROWTH MINDSET RAP

I woke up today feeling like a big old joke
Knowing I won’t succeed rather I’ll just choke
Because I wasn’t born smart just like the rest of the crew
My brain’s stuck as it is like a giraffe in a zoo

There’s NO use trying, my talents are zip
I don’t try I’m NOT even close to equipped
Like David, or Katy or Trinity, too
They got the brains there so smart I want to be in their shoes

That’s right not (Couldn’tGetThis) we got a FIXED MINDSET 
vote for the other team if you’re making a bet
 because we don’t know how to take stuff into our brains
We give up because there is nothing to gain

That’s insane so you’re saying just to give up
You are NOT even trying
The only reason that we rock is because we are READY to FLY
We make mistakes, take chances and often we fail
That lights up the brain enlarges it as big as a whale

Not quite, but, seriously, that’s what it takes
The only way to get better is by making mistakes
Now you can sit there feeling bad looking at your situation
Feeling like you got a raw deal soaking in all that frustration

In the end it’s always only up to you, you make the choice you got the voice - so here, have my shoes!
Walk in them, see how they feel
They’re dirty, dusty heels are totally healed -

FOR REAL?

That’s right, that’s right we got a growth mindset
Vote for us every time when you are making a bet
Because if you’re working hard you can accomplish anything
You never hit a ball if you never even swing

What’s up Einstein you’re a place to be
COULDN’T GET THIS
Let’s say I made mistakes along the way 
But I kept growing everyday

Nice to meet you everybody I’m Joan of Arc
I saved France from invasion and I’m as tough as a shark
When the going gets rough you got to get tougher
If you don’t try harder then you will only suffer

Well hello there excuse me yes my name is BILL GATES
I created Microsoft and I’m worth 81.6 billion dollars and made lots of mistakes!
I learned early in life that it is all about the mindset
NOT FIXED but ALL GROWTH
And that I never forget!

Green’s my friend my name is Sacagawea
I guided Lewis and Clark and came up with many ideas
Along the way we had a couple wrong turns
In the end we grow when we’re wrong we learn

That’s right, that’s right we got a GROWTH MINDSET
Vote for us every time when you’re making a bet
Because, if you’re working hard you can accomplish anything-
But, you will never hit the ball if you never even swing

(Repeat Last Stanza and Out!)

---I had a certain difficulty hearing all the words. I'll make changes if I hear them better.

TRIAL + ERROR: The LEARNING PROCESS

’'TRIAL + ERROR''
The LEARNING PROCESS

THERE WAS A TIME
WHEN LEARNING TO WALK
WHERE I FELL DURING
MOST OF THE PROCESS

IF I HAD STOPPED TRYING TO WALK

THE FIRST TIME I FELL
AND EVEN GIVEN UP ON 
THE LEARNING ENTIRELY and 
DECIDED WELL THAT’S THAT
I’M JUST NOT A WALKER
I WOULD HAVE MISSED THE SCADS OF
THINGS I LEARNED FROM WALKING -
AND THE LEARNING TO WALK,
LET ALONE THE JOY OF WALKING,
AND LIMITED MYSELF COMPLETELY UNNECESSARILY! 

THE LEARNING PROCESS OF

TRIAL + ERROR
IS HOW WE LEARN,
MAKING MISTAKES IS PART OF THE PROCESS
IT IS MIND OVER MATTER
WHERE WE FIND
IT ONLY MATTERS, IF WE MIND
AND MAKING MISTAKES IS GOOD!

(THE MORE WE MIND, THE MORE IT MATTERs,

BUT THE LESS WE MIND, THE LESS IT MATTERs...
THIS COULD BE THE MOST IMPORTANT STATEMENT 
THAT YOU EVER READ...
AND MAKING MISTAKES IS STILL PART OF THE PROCESS!)

IF SOMEONE LAUGHs AT

THE WRONG TIME
OUR FALL MAY LEAVE US
SELF-CONSCIOUS
WE MAY START TO HAVE TO PROVE OURSELVES
DURING THE LEARNING PROCESS!
BOY, DOES THAT KIND OF LEARNING
SUBTRACT FROM THE FUN
AND PUT US IN A FIXED MINDSET!

FEAR and THE POWER of YET!

A Growth Mindset


 When I Was Young I Was Told
To Stay Out-of-the-Street
A Car May Hit You
So Be Safe

As I Got Older
My Intelligence Grew
I Was Allowed To
Cross At The Light

Intelligence Gave Me
The Ability To
Negotiate The Situation

I Feared The Traffic
Until I Was Able
To Understand It
Many Things In My Life
Had That Dynamic

Fear Until I Understood It!
Mountains Go Back To Molehills
Once Again, The
Playing Field Is Level

To Me, Fear Is Just NOT
Understanding Things...YET!

The PANE CLINIC


The PANE CLINIC

CLICK PICTURE


This is NOT the PAIN CLINIC
That We’re Used To;
Nevertheless, It Is The PANE CLINIC

It’s Called THAT to Bring up
The Image of Windows…
The Cleaner It Is, The Clearer It Is!
Sometimes, When Spotless,
It Is Hard To Tell
There is a Window, There!

We Liken This To The MIND
When It Is Clean, and Clear
And as Spotless as can be
When Things Are Seen That Way,
Resistance To The Concept Is Low
Pain Is Hard To Find!

We Can, Actually, Say
When The Pane Is Clean + Clear
The Pain Is NOT Found!
The PANE CLINIC Has Done It’s Job!

In ALL Actuality
The PANE CLINIC RESIDES
In The THIRD EYE…Itself!

OUCH! A Smudge -
There’s The PAIN!
