A lot of people are unique and highly skilled, but not everyone makes it. The key to being seen and heard in this noise is to be genuine, authentic and able to express your true self.

Recreate, Reinvent

When something is clearly not working, it makes sense to pivot, recreate and reinvent it. We need to keep our ego aside and internalize all the lessons you have learned due to failure. 

One should always take a hard, honest look at one’s life, not being afraid to change one’s course.

Open Up and Show Yourself

Showing your vulnerability, sincerity, and honesty isn’t comfortable, but is a sign of courage. Truthful and sincere people shine like the sun and can be spotted easily in this noisy world.

Being able to talk about failure and your weaknesses makes you human and also inspires the people around you. When you come across as relatable, warm and flawed, it acts as a silver foil over your skillsets.

Amuse Yourself

Life is not to be taken too seriously. Not everything will be like the way you want it to be. Make it your playground.

There will be blunders, mistakes, miscalculations, and some disastrous days as well. The trick is to not let anything get to you, and have fun with every moment, enjoying it to the fullest.

Motivated perception

It is the idea that we see what we want to see.

It’s similar to another concept — motivated reasoning, where we come to conclusions we’re predisposed to believe in.

Naive realism

It is the feeling that our perception of the world reflects the truth.

Of all our senses, we tend to trust our eyes the most. And we believe that the way we see the world is the way that the world really is.

Building effective mentoring relationships

Mentoring requires having a clear idea of how the sessions themselves are to happen. 

Make sure that from the very beginning you communicate to your mentee exactly how all is going to take place: how often, where, how, etc. Get to know the other and use all the means you dispose of in order to help him or her reach the desired goal.

A mentor's real purpose

More than giving directions, a mentor is supposed to provide the so-called pieces of supportive advice, which will enable the mentee to make up her or his mind, based on their own beliefs.

Sesame Street

Sesame Street

Before Sesame Street, music wasn't even considered as a means to teach children. But Sesame Street changed that and proved that kids are very receptive to a grammar lesson contained in a song.

Musical stars

Big-name stars lined up to make guest appearances. Stevie Wonder and Grover; Loretta Lynn and the Count; Smokey Robinson and a marauding letter U. "Sesame Street" also showcased Afro-Caribbean rhythms, operatic powerhouses, Latin beats, Broadway showstoppers, and bebop.

Now, after 4,526 episodes, the legacy is evident: It impacted the music world as much as it shaped TV history, inspiring fans and generations of artists.

The goal

The aim of "Sesame Street" was to build school preparedness and narrow the educational gap between lower- and upper-income children.

They used pedagogy advice from a Harvard professor. Research also showed children were more receptive when they watched with caregivers, so celebrities were introduced.
