By engaging him or her toward THEIR dream goal, EVERYTHING else falls into place:
Experience with MANY teenagers has SHOWN that, when they’re pursuing THEIR dream goal:
·        Motivation increases
·        Focus improves
·        Discipline strengthens
·        Homework becomes more personally important.
The list could go on – but you get the idea.

So the challenge becomes – how to get them to identify and set their DREAM GOAL?

Despite your possible doubt, it is A FACT that all human beings [including your teen] are inherently motivated.
Are there confounding factors? Yes. Could be things like hormonal or body chemistry changes or shifts, emotional swings due to interpersonal or dating issues – which may seem small, small, small to you or me – but to them, their world hinges on it… And of course, the usual – past habits of minimal motivation, doing too much for them, giving them too much, etc.  But even those can be overcome by the steps below.

I fully expect that many readers will say – “yeah, that may be for those other teens – but mine is different.”  BUNK.  Open your eyes and your mind.

Basic issue: an underachiever is someone achieving below their potential.  THEY HAVE POTENTIAL – you simply may not have figured out how to tap it yet.

To get them dreaming, we have several tools we can share with you – just message me.

Lou Holtz - very famous football coach, says, “If you’re bored with life [it’s because] – you don’t get up every morning with a burning desire to do things – you don’t have enough goals.”

Bottom line?  NO GOAL, NO GLORY!

LAST THOUGHT: recognize, even assume – that their dream goal may change.  THAT’S OK.  In fact, it’s the process that’s most important and valuable.
