    Teens and Adults get the love-hate relationship with numbers

    When we so love numbers when we’re young – what are the results that individuals set out to dislike them?

    Let’s start with parents who wish to discuss the terrible 2’s. Will be the 2’s so "terrible" or shall we be pre-programmed to believe so? And can we pass this on our kids in order that they start to learn that some numbers are not-so-good???

    Only then do we have the amorphous "someone" who informs us that arithmetic is actually difficult. I not really know who started this myth however it is a myth. Worse – we tell children that arithmetic is tougher for girls compared to boys! So those numbers begin to enter in the hate category.

    We like to turning 13! We have been teenagers! And soon we could drive!

    We dream to get high gpa’s at school and also on the tests that "matter." In the event the numbers are not what we were hoping or expecting we obtain sad as well as depressed. Yet not many of us question whether those test numbers mean anything in the real world outside school. We assign love/hate in their mind.

    Along with many countries we like to reaching the legal era of driving, drinking and voting or marrying. These are most often good numbers and then we love them.

    Unless, naturally, we hate them!

    Look at the numbers in your own life and as opposed to creating a love/hate relationship with them, think of the things they mean to you personally and why…after which discover how to love every one of them! They are your numbers and they are generally you!
