Potential, Progress and Pride

3 Feb

2014 Presentation

There is no hiding from that warm feeling as more students start to recognise their true potential and work towards the life that they dream of. It was lovely to host an awards ceremony to acknowledge the fabulous progress of some of our students. They really take pride in their work and themselves; they will make a big difference in their communities. It was fabulous seeing their joy and the pride on the faces of their family.

Now we are focussing on driving this program out across London as even with an education system, in all honesty, it is not resourced to provide the holistic education that we offer. The cuts may have slowed down the opportunities of future generations but thankfully, they are picking themselves up and reaching for the stars. Self belief is all important; once it is found, the results are quite magical. These are our true leaders of tomorrow.

The Little Known Secret to a Productive Mind…

13 Jul

Dream-itCodey-learns-cot-blanket

You may notice here that I say to a productive mind and not just learning. Yes, in the young a productive mind is learning new things all the time and in that case, we need them to retain this learning. As a person gets older, a productive mind is one which is thinking about better ways of getting important things done OR just relaxing and thinking about the positives after. Another good day.

So, this morning I woke up smiled at this beautiful sunny warm day and thought, it’s time for part 2. Last time we spoke about confidence, now lets think about training our minds up to make the best of our channeled confidence.

Many teenagers I teach say to me. ‘But misssssss, I can’t remember all of that! ‘ it’s their very favourite excuse. I don’t accept that because I know that in using the correct techniques, the techniques that Ebony Gold Education has worked on for years. My students are taught that homework tasks or any revision matters are best carried out as near to bedtime as possible. Where the mind relaxes, it is amazing what it will keep filed up there. When you think about it, as teenagers love to sleep so much, we could be on the verge of developing a new generation of geniuses! The techniques which have been proven in our results year after year are taught at an early stage and developed through the program.

One of the best things about it is this is a discipline which carries through to use right through life. Personally my mind works fantastically when I’m asleep, it wakes up positive and ready to embrace all that it needs to process for the day. It’s like martial arts for the mind, keeping it focused peaceful and with set goals. Most of all like martial arts, once you begin to master it, no-one can force your mind into corners where it ends up having to battle it’s way out. It always sees the light.

For students I say, sleep on it and repeat it as soon as possible after waking. Don’t worry and have faith in yourself, let that confidence through.

Codey Learns carries all of the resources needed to enhance and embed the teaching and learning from Ebony Gold Education. One of my favourites is the Embroidered Alphabet Cot Blanket. This starts the training at the earliest point but in a fun and luxurious way. Have a look, I have included a picture because I love it. It even has a pocket for tidy items and a hood for snuggle up and learn moments. If you would like to get one directly, you could visit Greenwich Baby in South East London or contact me directly at jacquigold@codeylearns.co.uk more designs will follow.

So to put it all together, today’s message is that when the mind learns to relax, it can remember and process much more than we give it credit for. The key is being able to relax the mind and allow it to focus on the positive things that will make steps towards that dream life.

I have a PowerPoint that I am happy to share with you FREE of charge . It explains in more detail the reasoning behind the above technique.Either follow me, email me directly on jacquigold@codeylearns.co.uk or comment with your email.

Have a blessed weekend.I’m going into the garden with a cold drink to chill with my babies.Speak soon 😀 xx

The Ultimate Guide to Making Your Dream Life..

10 Jul

As my students come to me, many of them have little belief in what exactly their strengths are. They often lack confidence and don’t know what they can achieve or how to use it in life. Without these key ingredients , it is quite hard to focus on the end game. The end game, in the Ebony Gold Education view and also the Codey Learns view is not only success in qualifications but also in confidence, self esteem and emotional intelligence. These all lead to the life that you want, it puts you more in charge of the process, journey and outcome. Today I am giving you part 1 of the method delivered to students. I hope you get involved, it’s quite an interesting exercise.

The Secrets Behind gaining Killer Confidence.

1. Write down 10 positive things you love about yourself.
This is so important as we are living in a world in which we are encouraged not to look at ourselves in this way. There is nothing wrong with knowing what you do well though. This will not make you less humble. I have included:
1.I am tall and elegant.
2. I have nice eyes that sparkle.
3. I have 2 beautiful children.
4. I am kind with a big heart.
5. I love to teach

I could go on and on….. They are small things but I feel great about them. Lets see what you have.

2. Now write down 10 positive things about your environment. Do you live in a great street?,have you got fabulous neighbours?….

3. Write down 5 reasons you feel secure everyday. An example might be that you speak to your mom daily.

4. Can you really laugh at yourself when you do something silly? Personally, I love to laugh and many times a day! My daughter shakes her head at me so many times. It’s liberating and you won’t so much mind others joining in.

5. Think about at least one way everyday in which you can show kindness to another. This is humbling but beneficial and will really add to your day and someone else’s too. Chances are they will pass on the favour too.

This is the first step on that ladder and you may find it difficult to start. I do promise you though, that once you start in earnest, you will begin to realise what a fabulously unique person you are and what you have to contribute.

Next time we will start to have a look at part 2. Confidence is key folks, love yourself first and love for others and from others will follow. A little change can mean a lot!Change-your-look-at-life

Speak soon. Stay safe, keep smiling and enjoy the sun. 😀 xx

Codey Learns Apprentice -The search begins

9 Jun

So I woke up quite excited today. I am starting the search for the first apprentice for Codey Learns Ltd today. Getting all of the paperwork together and finally getting things moving. Do you know what is the best part, it is knowing that this is going to help another young person begin life or move their life in the direction of their dreams. You see, when I teach, I always tell my students that their success is down to their hard work. I merely steer the ship if it veers off course. This is another case of exactly that, it will be steering a little more of an experienced ship to its next destination . My passion is in helping the young to make the most out of this fabulous life, there is enough room for everyone to take a big old chunk. They just have to want it. This is why I know that the first attribute that applicants must have is drive or vision…. This was nearly lost with me as a teen. 

Let me take you back to a time when I was in Year 9. It is such a pivotal day that I will always remember it. That morning I woke up deciding that life would end on that day. So I got all that I ‘needed’ to bring it to an end, went into school early as usual. It was sunny but a little chilly that early in the morning. I recall pulling up my blazer collars whilst sitting in the playground thinking. I looked around at the tall buildings and the silence and felt absolutely happy with what would come next. With hindsight I know that that wasn’t happiness, that was just wanting peace. And then some of the reasons for my sadness came tearing through the silence like a pack of rabid dogs. They were gathering around, pulling my clothes, up in my face snarling horrid comments. I got up and went inside to registration, no, my first decision this morning was the right one.

I sat in registration, answered my name and didn’t say much more. After registration, as everyone went off to lessons, I could think of nothing worse, so I picked up my ‘kit’ and headed for the door. As I walked down the almost clinical corridors to walk out, I almost smiled. But then came the voice that changed by direction, not only literally but forever! ‘Where do you think you’re going’ the voice sounded so large, so loud, so powerful but Miss Carabin was actually tiny. She stood there with her shaved head, partly dyed red, what we termed hippy clothes, pink cheeks and a half knowing smile. She led me back in and spoke gently as she coaxed everything out of me. That day I was moved out of the class with the rabid dogs, things began to get brighter. In fact, im so lucky to be able to have changed my life through education and having a big heart.imageThere was other stuff but as far as the educational parts went, my life restarted. There is something more about those rabid dogs, I saw one again a few years ago, just in passing, it is an amusing story but if you don’t mind I will save it for another time..

After that, you will excuse my excitement and real gratification for being in this position today. My mom might have been grieving if Miss Carabin had not come along but instead today she is an ever proud mom and grandmom. I know that I have been given life for a reason. Everyone has a story that no one knows about. I am grateful to be able to offer a hand to someone else to take that step in the right direction. I’m excited to be able to contribute in this way because this will be the first of many.

As the process begins, I tell you hand on heart, I appreciate every hand that was ever put out to me. Now I am putting mine out too. It’s so hard for young people today to spot the opportunities and see clearly how they can benefit. Miss Carabin, my grandad and Aunt Ita (RIP) are perhaps my greatest influences and who I learned the most from but believe me, if I started this list of my influencers, it would be huge!

I will let you know what happens as the applications start coming in.
Have a great day and a great week 😀
