July POWerful Word – DETERMINATION – Week 3

Think of the people you know. Everyone’s good at different things– whether it’s art, sports, math, or spelling. What are you good at doing? This is called a “strength” because you are strong in that area. When we are strong in a certain area, does that mean that we don’t need to work at it? Can we be lazy and just sit around? No! Each one of our strengths is like a muscle– we need to keep working them so they get stronger and stronger! What can you do to get stronger in the things that you consider a strength (i.e. practice, ask for help, stay focused)? If you have 2 people who are about to run a race– one who is very strong in running but never practices and isn’t very determined to win and one who
isn’t as strong in running but who practices a lot and is extremely determined to win– who do you think would win and why? Determination wins!
