"Unlock the Treasure in Every Child" - April 29, 2019
Positivity Project- Connection & Purpose
Connection/purpose gives individuals the sense that they are put on this earth for a reason and that they are somehow connected with humanity or the universe. People who possess a sense of purpose believe that they were put on earth for a reason. That reason can have all kinds of variety. It could be to create a unique invention, to bring joy through art or music, or to raise their children to become good people. These people have a true calling.appreciation, connection/purpose, gratitude, hope, and humor.
The parent virtue of connection and purpose is Transcendence. These strengths allow people to rise above their troubles and find meaning in the larger universe. Strengths of transcendence are appreciation of beauty and excellence, connection/purpose, gratitude, hope/optimism, and humor.
Use these quotes, videos and character card to discuss the character strength with your children.

"Everyone has a purpose in life and a unique talent to give to others." ~ Kallam Anji Reddy
