Sometimes in life, you find yourself a holding pattern, forced to delay when you dearly desire to act. You want to take the field, but the big game hasn’t even started yet. What else can you do but wait? Here’s what you can do: Be patient. As author Joyce Meyer said, “Patience is not the ability to wait but the ability to keep a good attitude while waiting.” Be strong. As Edward George Bulwer-Lytton, another author, said, “Patience is not passive; on the contrary, it is active; it is concentrated strength.” Be planful. Some wise individual observed, “The day you plant the seed is not the day you eat the fruit.” Last but not least, be present in the moment you find yourself. Sometimes you have to let go of the picture of what you thought life would be like and learn to find joy in the story you’re living.…

When the school year started, nobody–and I repeat, nobody–could have predicted that Spring 2020 started with school closings across the United States and utter cessation of all sports and activities. But this really is happening. Take heart!           Now, how will you use your social distancing downtime to pursue all the dreams you have for when society reconvenes? Stay strong and never stop working towards what you really want!

Earlier in the year, I shared some pointed quotes about What to Be When You Want to Be Successful. However, as Carl Jung observed, “You are what you do.” Success in any specific area requires very specific steps; the path to superior test scores may resemble that for other endeavors, but requires demonstrably more practice tests! In a larger sense, though, elite performance depends on consistently doing the right things the right way… Do you know what to do now?

We’re proud to announce that Chariot Learning has been selected for the 2019 Best of Rochester Award in the Tutoring Service category–the second year in a row we’ve been so honored. Recognition of our collective commitment to our students, schools, and community means the world to us. Not only are we grateful, but we’re fired up for a three-peat! But enough about us.

Brian Tracy is not technically a test prep expert. However, this internationally respected motivational public speaker and self-development author certainly knows a lot about what leads to success on test day. Tracy’s self-professed goal may be to help you achieve your personal and business goals faster and easier than you ever imagined, but his wisdom can also support serious score improvement if applied the right way: ON EFFORT The average person works at fifty percent or less of their potential. Your job is to unleash that extra fifty percent. You have to put in many, many, many tiny efforts that nobody sees or appreciates before you achieve anything worthwhile. Your most valuable asset can be your willingness to persist longer than anyone else. I’ve found that luck is quite predictable. If you want more luck, take more chances. Be more active. Show up more often. ON GOAL SETTING Goals allow…
