The Power of Optimism | Man on the Street

My Challenge to You

The power of optimism. Do you believe in optimism? Take a few minutes to watch this version of "Man on the Street"... no it is not mine but I really like this approach. That is not what this is about... this is about being optimistic. Are you optimistic?


I am an optimistic person. I feel that as an educator that I must be optimistic because I am in a position to influence peoples' lives each and every day. How I choose to influence people is up to me and it is a choice that I make every single day. The same choice is yours to make as well.


I believe that as educators we must see the good in people which includes our students parents AND our fellow educators. If the very people that are in the "people business" of helping shape and grow humans cannot focus on the positive aspects of everyone they come into contact with then how will we ever change the world? After all that is why you became en educator right?!? To change the world?


It is EASY to focus on the bad. In fact as human beings we are hard wired to remember the negative MORE than the positive. Read this New York Times article to learn more. Focusing on the good takes effort and is a conscious choice that we all must make if we want to make a difference in the lives of others.


My challenge to you is to find the good and positives in your students, parents, and fellow educators. Compliment and praise them on their effort. Remember the 3:1 ratio of positive to negatives from Safe & Civil Schools? There is science behind it. Focus on the positives the next few weeks and watch those around you begin to transform.


Think. Achieve. Succeed.


Jeff
