Magical Quotes from the Episode:

“If you have negative thoughts, you're most likely not going to do as well on the exam. The negative thoughts can hurt you, and the positive thoughts can only help.”

  • "The words have power. If what we're thinking and saying can actually affect us... Our bodies are made up of so much water that if words have the power to actually change the crystal structure of molecules, imagine what negative self-talk can do to us."

  • "Positive affirmations can help with trying to make sure you're putting positive spins on things. It's about making sure that their attitude going into a test is one of confidence and empowerment instead of stress and negative thoughts."

  • "I had a group of students... some of them started writing words like 'love' and 'confidence' on their water bottles... They wanted to embody that if I believe it, it's going to happen."
