Journey to the M.A. Degree is Charlotte's first published educational book that is an effort to inspire other adults to return to higher-educational learning. It is the fulfillment of one of her greatest dreams that she could make a dedicated effort to reach her goal and achieve university level degrees.
"It is a positive attitude in people who desire to fullfill their goals," says Charlotte M. Liebel, "and I hope to give readers an understanding and remove the mystery of higher learning.
Education has the building blocks for competing in the workforce on every level and in every desired career. Learning can be taught." This last thought is meant to encourage all adults to enter a "psychological mind" of positive thinking, according to Ms. Liebel.
“During my psychological studies, I learned that people who devote all their time thinking negative thoughts can develop anxieties and illnesses. However, it is broadly understood that the mind can be re-programmed to accept or resist negativity. It can just as well promote or reject possibility.
“The brain is an amazing organ that controls the functions of the body. It can be conditioned to remember and to forget important data. Thoughts and behaviors are learned and remain in one’s memory until such time as they might be erased by amnesia, disease, or death. Memory is a function of the mind and contains the sum of a person’s life in the brain. We must learn, then, how to develop the best brain activity that we can--to help it perform longer and better.”
