We will continue our discussion of Achievement during our lessons this week. We will be talking together about how important commitment is to Achievement. Our in-class discussion lesson for this week follows below:
“The freedom to do your best means nothing unless you are willing to do your best.” — Colin Powell (U.S. Secretary of State)
If there is something you want to accomplish, you have to commit to it — to give it your very best, and sustained, effort. Achievement doesn’t mean just finishing tasks, it means completing them as well as you possibly can. The freedom to succeed is a privilege — we make achievements when we’ve committed to a goal, and made our very best effort. An achievement, such as earning your Black Belt, is your personal best. We can always take pride in our achievements when we know we have done our very best.
1) Does your attitude effect the way you complete a task?
2) What is something you have done recently where you have made a special effort to do your very best?
3) How can you help other students in karate class to do their best?
