How Can This Book Help YOU?
Effective teaching requires serious mental fortitude. Awakened will empower you to develop the resilient, flexible, positive mindset you need to:
- Consciously challenge the negative thoughts that discourage you
- Build your tolerance for frustration so you become less ‘disturbable’
- Live beyond your feelings to stay motivated when you don’t see results
- Change your perception of setbacks so they feel less stressful
- Let go of unrealistic expectations, standards, and comparisons
- Realize a sense of accomplishment in a job that’s truly never done
Awakened provides simple steps to help you feel peaceful and energized no matter what’s happening around you. Drawing upon principles of stress management, cognitive behavioral therapy, biblical and spiritual truths, and personal experiences, Awakened helps you develop thought habits that produce an unshakeable sense of contentment, motivation, and purpose. Learn how to renew your mind and take a fresh approach to the challenges of teaching!
