******************************************************************

THIS WEEK’S REVIEW:  “THE VISION:  Telling Kids That They Can Make the World a Better Place”

Keisha Glenn, Assistant Prosecuting Attorney – Wayne County, Michigan, says, “The Vision is crafted in such a way that it is the perfect tool for young children to learn about the value of education and for African-American children to briefly witness the struggles of their ancestors in obtaining an education.

The worksheets in the book are a wonderful way to get children to recognize, think about, and discuss the opportunities available to them both educationally and socially.  Having the children create goals and sign contracts is a wonderful idea to stimulate enthusiasm and create a sense of accomplishment.

As a juvenile court prosecutor, I saw first-hand how many kids took for granted the opportunities they had to get an education.  I think every classroom and courtroom dealing with young children should make The Vision required reading.”

Climb The Mountain!

What do you do when you’re hit with bad news?

There’s an old saying that can help to guide you:  “It’s not what happens to you; it’s how you choose to deal with it.”  The key word is “choose.”

Typically, your choices will include positive and negative options.  Always choose positive options because they have a better chance of attracting positive outcomes.  (Negative options will most likely attract negative outcomes.)

Life will always be filled with problems and challenges.  Learn to meet them head-on.  Don’t fret; don’t run.  Solve them; conquer them.  Climb the mountain!

You are bigger than any problem or challenge that will ever come your way.

Remember that!

    Great post. Keisha’s review was excellent. And I like the topic, “Climb the Mountain”. You always have such inspirational messages.

    Here are two of my favorite quotes that speak to your topic so well. I keep them both in my journal.

    “It isn’t the mountains ahead to climb that wear you out; it’s the pebble in your shoe.” ~ Muhammad Ali

    And another favorite one. “Nobody trips over mountains. It is the small pebble that causes you to stumble. Pass all the pebbles in your path and you will find you have crossed the mountain.”

    Congrats on the new book. 🙂

    Hi Joyce!
    I loved all of the stories! The story of “Water and Rocks” very good example of how to live life.
    The article “Can’t Please Everybody” was funny and true. Might as well please yourself.
