This tool will give them the life skills needed to be motivated, balanced and capable adults.

Great Day Academics 

Teaches "NEW STORY" To Our Kids!

As educators, our job is to ensure that each child is headed in the direction of their dreams.

 

A large portion of students leave the school system feeling defeated because they were at a disadvantage from the start. Their self value was determined by their grades and how they rank among their peers.

 

Great Day has a mission to level the playing field. We show children and teens that their worth isn't set by the score on a standardized test. We develop good character and make their stories based on their perseverance and willingness to truly do their best.

 

When students create a New Story for themselves, they break free from their Old Story of living by comparison. They are inspired to do well in school to better themselves and have the responsibility, ambition and the ethics to make a positive difference in the world.  

ACTIVE DREAMERS  ARE ACCOMPLISHED LEADERS

"THE TRUE SIGN OF INTELLIGENCE IS NOT KNOWLEDGE, BUT IMAGINATION"
-Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein and Nikola Tesla are just two of many brilliant minds who attributed some of the most intellectual advancements in human history to the use of their imagination. 

Imagination is the ability to produce images, ideas and sensations in the mind without any immediate input of the senses. Imagination helps make knowledge applicable in solving problems and is fundamental to integrating experience with the learning process.

What you imagine affects your physiology:

Now research says that the actions you only imagine doing are still simulated in your body.

 

For example, if you only imagine cutting open a lemon and imagine putting pure lemon juice in your mouth, your salivary glands will be triggered.

 

In the same way, a resent study explains that if you only imagine yourself working out, your body still responds and produces the same hormones and results on a smaller scale.

 

An actual physical workout, in addition, to doing an imaginative mental rehearsal of the workout is twice as beneficial as doing only one or the other - WOW!

I spent far too much time over analyzing lessons and spinning my wheels. While this method seemed to achieve many goals for my work and personal life, I burned out early on. I noticed that my best lessons and projects came from my imagination while laying in bed, taking a shower or washing the dishes. A spark or flash of inspiration in the form of an image was all it took to show me exactly the best way to go. Strengthening this imaging faculty made my goals come into a more natural flow. I spend less time going around in circles and more time taking inspired action. When I can see clearly in my imagination, my reality follows, relieving me of physical and mental strain and adding more gratifying checks off my "to do list."  

This too, is my wish for you!
