Counseling

Welcome to the Gunnison Middle School Counseling Program Page!

This year, we are creating a new way of thinking at GMS using The 7 Mindsets program! The 7 Mindsets are based on a three year research effort that began with the simple question: What do the world’s happiest and most successful people have in common? In search of the answer, they studied many of the happiest and most successful people who’ve ever lived. They reviewed the most extensive and important studies on personal achievement ever conducted. And they personally interviewed 400 leading experts, some of the most successful men and women of the 20th and 21st centuries.

Their research revealed that the answer wasn’t related to gender, ethnicity, or where they lived in the world. It had nothing to do with being raised in a loving home or a broken one. It didn’t matter if their families were rich, middle class, or impoverished. It wasn’t even connected to how far they advanced in school or the skills they acquired along the way. In fact, it turns out that the gamechanging commonalities of happiness and success are based on how the world’s most successful people think.

What emerged from their research was a set of seven mental habits foundational to an enriched life. The 7 Mindsets are a comprehensive blueprint for happiness, intentionality and success, written in simple, powerful language to teach and activate success strategies for people to live the lives of their dreams.

Our first mindset is Everything is Possible!
The Everything is Possible mindset provides an understanding that we are all capable of extraordinary lives. We learn that everything in existence was once just an idea until someone believed it was possible and turned it into a reality. Embracing this fact allows one to envision a wonderful life, expect greatness, and effectively execute the process of making dreams come true. Don’t be a dream snatcher! Resist the urge to give your children reality checks, no matter what their dreams are. Dreams are precious and represent the hopes and expectations we have for our lives. So every dream and positive vision of the future that your children have should be encouraged. Their dreams will inevitably change, but what matters is that they’re dreaming and believing. Constantly push your children to dream bigger, and never be the doubter or pessimist.
