The Imagineerz i-can™ mindset is made up of three parts; confidence, perseverance, and creative problem-solving. We sum it up with our motto, “i-imagine, i-can, i-do.”
Confidence, or “i-can,” means you believe in yourself. This is a belief you can cultivate over time with practice and reflection. When you succeed at something, take time to reflect on the success. Even if the success is small, if you take time to reflect on it you can use that memory for fuel during a slightly scarier or more difficult challenge in the future.
Perseverance, or “i-do,” means not giving up. It means examining failures and mistakes to learn from them, and then using that learning to try again. “I-do” isn’t just about working hard, it’s about working smart.
Creative problem solving, or “i-imagine,” means you seek out and use strategies that will help you overcome problems you encounter on the way to your dreams and goals. Confidence and perseverance without strategies and problem solving tools tend to lead to frustration.
We know that with an i-can™ mindset children and adults alike can do anything they set their minds to. We also know building mindsets takes constant practice and reinforcement. That’s why at Imagineerz we try to give children and families tools and experiences to build all three parts of the i-can™ mindset all year round. One more thing we know…people are more likely to jump into an activity if it’s fun. So we try to make sure our experiences are filled with fun things like stories, challenges, songs, and games.
Have fun building you and your family’s i-can™ mindset! We’re with you every step of the way.
