September POWerful Word – POSITIVE ATTITUDE – Week 3
While we know that our attitude is connected to how we THINK and FEEL, it’s also connected to how we ACT! When we are at home, in school or here in class with a positive attitude, how does it affect what we DO? When we are at home, in school or here in class with a negative attitude, how does it affect what we DO? Again, attitude makes a difference! Let’s talk about how our positive attitude affects our actions in the following situations: (1) You have been working on a skill in a bunch of classes. You keep making mistakes. What positive ACTIONS would you take? (2) You are moving to a new school where you don’t know anyone yet. What positive actions can you take to feel better about the move? (3) You are on a team & you have lost a 3 times in a row. What positive actions might you take? (4) You are upset because you got into an argument with a friend- and then you come to class. Can feelings carry over into our actions? What positive actions can you take? Can a positive attitude really help?
If you have time: When you take positive actions and keep positive attitude even during tough times, how do you think your life will turn out (and why?)?
