Middle School Motivation
Middle School is a difficult transition for so many students. This presentation demonstrates to them that they are really are not alone in any of their trials or tribulations. I discuss my own challenges in Middle School and show them how to dig deep and find their core inner-strength that can be used to face any challenge that they encounter – in school or in life. Students will hear about one student that had a dream of becoming a magician. Today, at the age of 33, he has performed in dozens of countries on nearly every continent, travels the world each year, created and sold new magic effects, hosted a show on the Discovery Channel for two seasons and continues to inspire young magicians and young students throughout the world. Your students or fellow teachers may have heard of him, Wayne Houchin, my son.
High School Horrors
High School is often that place where students learn
“It’s not all about me… It’s all about what the popular kids think of me!”
Students will be delighted to hear about other people that had similar challenges in High School, survived it and went on to have stellar careers and impact the world in significantly positive ways. They will learn how to reframe their experiences so that they can achieve their greatness that lies just under the surface, waiting to be discovered.
College Graduation is more than an the important milestone. It is more than the end of a long educational career. It is more than a new beginning. It is a critical, often perilous juncture between a life as an accomplished student and a life as a productive citizen.
Until now, many students have pursued their education with the intent of landing a job. But soon they will come to realize that the job is actually secondary to having a robust vision of the future. The job is just a tool to help bring that vision into reality.
Graduates will leave this ceremony armed, not only with inspiration, but with practical tools that will enable them to step boldly into the future and embrace their new world with zeal.
