I’ve written time and again about the power of words. I saw this ditty on FB (where else). It was a bulletin board in an elementary school classroom and is a powerful message.
|Powerless: I don’t understand||
Powerful: What am I missing?
|Powerless: I give up||Powerful: I’ll use some of the strategies I’ve learned.|
|Powerless: I made a mistake||Powerful: Mistakes help me improve.|
|Powerless: This is too hard||
Powerful: This may take some time and effort.
|Powerless: It’s good enough||
Powerful: Is this really my best work?
|Powerless: I’ll never be as smart as her||Powerful: I’m going to figure out what she does and try it.|
|Powerless: I can’t make this any better||
Powerful: I can always improve. I’ll keep trying.
|Powerless: I’m not good at this||Powerful: I’m not good at this – I’m on the right track.|
