FROM DILIP MUKERJEA

"Genius is in-born, may it never be still-born."

"Oysters, irritated by grains of sand, give birth to pearls. Brains, irritated by curiosity, give birth to ideas."

"Brainpower is the bridge to the future; it is what transports you from wishful thinking to willful doing."

"Unless you keep learning & growing, the status quo has no status."

CHAMPIONING STUDENTS: NO RAH RAH & TOUCHY FEELY STUFF!

[continuation from the Last Post ~ in connection with the recent launch of a series of new programs intended for parents as well as their school-going kids/teens, under the auspices of 'The House of Creative Brains'.]


One last point about Dilip's programs.

Unlike all those fancy purveyors out in the marketplace, Dilip is very discerning; he doesn't want to waste time in giving participants that "temporary high" in class.

Yes! It is true that the brain gets emotionally charged up, whenever there is a lot of "rah-rah" &/or "touchy feely" stuff going around, especially orchestrated within the confined space of a seminar/workshop environment.

This "groupie feeling" obviously makes participants feel good, & longing for more. But what happens when one leaves the seminar/workshop?

A lot of these people will end up in square one. They are resigned to become seminar/workshop junkies. No offence intended, as I have encountered a lot of these people in my professional life.

Sad to say, these people are more keen in seeking that momentary nostalgic emotion, rather than committed to making real changes in their own personal lives.

This is the harsh reality in the public seminar/workshop circuit involving so-called motivational training, & you know what, enterprising but unscrupulous purveyors are riding on it!

Do you know why? Here's my answer, courtesy of comedian/actor Jimmy Durante:

"Man is the only animal that can be skinned more than once!"

In contrast, Dilip only wants participants to go home with truly sustainable strategies for immediate application & spontaneous integration in their own life.

Naturally, he will ensure that class time under his coaching is always FUN TIME!
