Motivation - Raising the Roof

...on student assets!  
Where ALL students are UNIQUE and WONDERFULLY MADE!

Today is Raising Student Assets Thursday!

I am so excited to be back for Positive Actions today, Dec. 14th! As we continue to improve our positive thoughts, actions and feelings, today we will take a look at raising student assets and a super important positive action word:

MOTIVATION

Tell your teacher what you think the word "MOTIVATION" means.  
"the reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way"
"general desire or willingness of someone to do something"

MOTIVATION.  What does "motivation" looks like?  If we look with positive hearts, we may discover that with MOTIVATION, we can ACHIEVE our goals!  Achievement Motivation is when students strive to do well in school and life.  Watch this video:





This video was intended to reach out to all of us who are not so athletically minded. Mrs. Hott was never very motivated at sports either!

No matter what your talent is, it is important and worth developing. For adults, parents and mentors, it's important to help young people search for that particular ability, which may not be so obvious at first. But, with the support of friends, classmates, teachers, and families, we can begin with a "positive thought" and try new things.  

It is always ok to try! I love how this mom keeps on offering opportunities for her son.  And, when he expresses his appreciation, my mom heart melts!

Think of someone who helps you.  Who "MOTIVATES" you to try things?  Today, be sure to express appreciation for their continued effort to support all your success -- and failures too!  


And remember, it is also important to know that here at Warm Springs Intermediate School, we are all part of a "cougar community" where great MOTIVATION starts with...


YOU!

Cougars that use MOTIVATION 
can change the world!
