Discussion: Unit 3,
The role models you identify as “successes” did not get there without adversity, obstacles, and challenges. They simply focused on their outcome and did not allow themselves to become sidetracked with guilt or excuses. “Ask and you shall receive, seek and you will find.” They focused on exactly what they wanted and formulated the internal belief and attitude that it was attainable. The common denominator to success and life balance is a positive attitude.
Did you know that it takes the same amount of energy to formulate a positive thought as it does a negative one? Positive thinking is ultimately about structuring your belief system; that is, substituting positive images for negative ones. It is the process of consciously filtering out unhealthy thoughts and cleansing the mind.
For the discussion, find a quote about attitude on the website (see link) that resonates well with your personal views on what you believe about your current attitude (or what you want your attitude to be).
Then, answer these questions about your quote in 3-5 sentences:
- Explain to your classmates why your quote is important to you.
- How will your quote motivate you when you face a challenge to accomplishing your academic goals?
- How will your quote change your attitude?
