Mentally Tough!

A group of clever learners joined me briefly today in a round-table session on strategies they were discussing concerning the best ways to be mentally tough at school and in life.  MentalToughnessThey were inspired to tackle this challenge because of a discussion their classroom leader (who wishes to remain anonymous) shared about ways to prepare for a test or any challenging situation in life.  Here’s a short synopsis of their many comments:

  • Learn from your mistakes and don’t fear them; they teach you lessons too.
  • Remember CAN’T never did anything worthwhile.
  • When you face a mean person or comment, stay positive anyway.
  • Tune out the bad stuff and concentrate on the good stuff.
  • Picture your success and you will find it.
  • Focus your energy and power on today, right now!
  • When you doubt yourself, look in the mirror and tell yourself “I CAN!”
  • If you feel alone, think of all the people who have helped you along the way.
  • Focus on what you can control and let go of the other stuff.
  • Remember to smile, have fun, greet others, and enJOY life—we only have one to live!
  • Remember that impossible really means, “I’m possible!”

WOW…what insightful, thought-provoking, inspiring words to live by everyday!  Here’s hoping you remember to stay mentally tough in your special way everyday!  🙂

Note:  We hope you join us Thursday evening this week for the 1st Grade program @ 7:00.
