Today I learned that a positive attitude makes all the difference.
Two students. Same class activity. One displays an attitude of excitement and challenge to solve the problem. One displays an attitude of indifference—too cool for school. Outcome—they both learn from the activity, but one enjoys the process and is open to learning. The others attitude holds him back and makes the activity seem like a slow torturous death.
Teachers talking in the teachers’ lounge about how different things are unfair. Sets a mood for the day. Teachers look at the positives of the day and the smiles of the students. Allows him to feel good and refreshed as he begins the school day.
You have the ability to choose your attitude. Your attitude becomes your character and your character is your destiny.
Attitudes are powerful. Make life fun and have a good one.
