â€¦â€¦â€œHave you ever experienced where you lost your eraser and you try to find it but you couldn"t get it no matter how hard you look for it?â€
â€œYesâ€, he replied.
â€œThen you find it easily when you forget about it.â€
â€œRight, it happens so many timesâ€
â€œWhat ever you think will come true. You couldn"t find your eraser because you are thinking of losing it all the while. But when you stop thinking of the bad things which is â€œlosing itâ€, it will just appear before you.
The same thing goes for your lesson. Whenever you think it"s hard. It will appear hard and the only way to change it from hard to easy is to change what you think.
Try to think â€˜it is easyâ€™ instead of â€˜it is hardâ€™ or â€˜I don"t know how to doâ€™. This is the powerful thing that separates you from other students. It makes you standout and special. If you listen and follow my advice, you will score 100. Do you want to score 100?â€
Again he replies, â€œYes, I want.â€
â€œWhy you can score 100 and while others can"t. The very simple reason is because I tell you this secret. Other students think â€˜I can"t do. It is hardâ€™ because they don"t have me to teach them this special secret. That"s why they don"t score 100. And you think â€˜I can do, it"s easyâ€™ because you have me to tell you this little known secret.
As long as you stick to this secret, you will not have any problem with your studies.â€
He can study all the spellings in less than 3 minutes (He used to complain that the spellings are hard and there is no way he can remember them all).
I manage to finish the exam topics in less than half an hour. I was amazed. I hide my feeling of surprise and tell him,
â€œNow, you believe what I have just said? What you think will become true to you. You said this is hard and tough because you think it is hard. But, when you change your thinking, it will become easy.â€
He nods, agreeing with me.
I feel good myself believing that I have done my job well. I get the satisfaction I need. I am always hungry for satisfaction.
Now you know why I like teaching? It is just simply because I will transform into Anthony Robbins when I teach.
