What do you say to yourself when you are in class?
We all know what the Negatives are and that we should ban these:
It’s too hard.
I never do it right.
I always do it wrong.
Blah, blah, blah, etc.
And we all know the Positives, they are our go-to’s:
You can do it!
Don’t give up!
You’ve got this!
Get it! Kill it!
Rah, rah, rah, etc.
But I was thinking that we could go beyond these simple encouragements, and adopt an internal dialogue that would accomplish more than a temporary prop-up.
I am able to move forward and am traveling towards my goals even when it appears that I am not.
This is not the end of the chapter, the book, the story.
IT FEELS GOOD TO TRY.
