The character trait of 3rd quarter is DETERMINATION. This week, the character challenge is to be a positive thinker. Positive thinking is so important! Our thinking is more powerful than we realize. It impacts our behavior and emotions. We have 35-48 thoughts PER MINUTE, or 50,000-70,000 thoughts PER DAY! If the majority of those thoughts are positive, then we are more likely to make positive choices and feel better emotionally.
“We can complain because rose bushes have thorns, or rejoice because thorn bushes have roses.” ~Abe Lincoln
“Keep your thoughts positive, because your thoughts become your words. Keep your words positive, because your words become your behavior. Keep your behavior positive, because your behavior becomes your habits. Keep your habits positive, because your habits become your values. Keep your values positive, because your values become your destiny.” ~Ghandi
