Once they enter teenage years, many girls start hiding their uniqueness and give away their power to fit in. This behaviour can become so ingrained that even as adults many women struggle with self knowledge and confidence – the key ingredients that help you find purpose and create impact. It’s only when you accept your true identity that you are able to get to know yourself, embrace your uniqueness, and make your mark. In this inspirational talk, Mehrnaz explores the self-deprecating behavior of trying to be like ‘everyone else’ and guides girls and women to embrace their true selves.
Obstacles, challenges, and failures are guaranteed to strike us at some point in our lives. Grit helps us face challenges successfully, but researchers have had difficulty pinpointing exactly how some individuals build grit and others don’t. In this inspiring talk Mehrnaz uses her personal story of how she beat her own debilitating struggle with selective mutism and takes you through the path she followed to confidently land on the TEDx red circle.
Mehrnaz motivates her audiences to reach their highest potential by rethinking what reaching a goal means by:
- Focusing on progress, not results
- Building habits and learning strategies
- Walking the path of mastery
Success Has Nothing To Do With Grades
Education has shifted from teaching and learning to focusing on high marks. Students are told they need good grades to become successful. If they achieve a high standing, it’s assumed that they have learned the skills and grasped the concepts they need for university and their careers. This is far from the truth.
As a thought provoking educator and a disruptive progress specialist, Mehrnaz’ motivational talk inspires students to reach their highest potential by rethinking what really is important to realize success.
