During our lessons this week, we will talk about how visualizing an important goal helps us to maintain our Persistence in accomplishing it. Our in-class discussion lesson for this week follows below:
“If you can’t fly, then run, if you can’t run, then walk, if you can’t walk, then crawl — but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.” — Martin Luther King, Jr. (Civil Rights Leader)
Persistence: every step brings us closer to our dreams.
Using our imagination is very helpful when we need to be persistent. We can use our imaginations to visualize our goals. Having a clear vision of our goals and aspirations can help us get through the bumps and obstacles on the way. When we have a clear vision of the end result we want to achieve, this helps to keep us focused and motivated so that we can overcome any setbacks. If your goal is earning your Black Belt, imagine what that will be like.
- What is one of your goals that you can visualize?
- Can you also visualize some of the steps you will take to achieve this goal?
- Do you think that achieving your goal by taking small, steady steps toward it means you are using persistence?
