From the Principal's View
Week of December 4- December 8, 2017
The Power of Giving
For example, a person is overcome with grief or loss, feeling stressed by the paycheck, frustrated with a co- worker, angry because they think work is not equitable. What should they do? The author suggests going to help at a shelter, making a gift for someone else, serving at a food kitchen as ideas. The outcome = change of mindset.
The power comes in service to others and giving which removes the "me" and allows an attitude of "us."
This is an inspiring message about how to change mindset and how to change thinking.
As we move into the IB attitude of appreciation, I challenge you to give in a different way.
Try something new, help another, take a diverse route, move beyond your comfort zone and appreciate the path before you.
Model this for your family, your friends, your students and yourself. Find the power in giving.
