Everyone needs to have a CHAMPION in order to FEEL LIKE A CHAMPION.
We all want someone and most of the time CERTAIN SOMEONES to really believe in us. We want them to be our CHAMPION. We want them to push us and encourage us, but especially believe in us and HELP US feel like the CHAMPION we need to be. This movie was such a cute story about exactly that. It’s important that we have people around us (or snails…haha…watch the movie, Boo) who BELIEVE WE WILL SUCCEED. If I do nothing else in this life, I sure hope I do that with my students and most especially with my own children.
I have heard and seen so many people that do the complete opposite. Obviously, there is something in their lives that makes them like that: bitterness and ugliness, but I describe it (and have several times in these daily blogs) as evil-ness. It’s evil, of the devil –it only furthers his agenda for the human race and NOT what GOD WANTS FOR US. God wants success for us, He wants us to know we can be CHAMPIONS of this world! YOU CAN HELP CREATE MORE CHAMPIONS BY ENCOURAGING, PUSHING, SUPPORTING AND CHEERING on others when they just need a little shot of “YES YOU CAN!”
This week in our profession development, we took the good with the bad, but one of the GREATs was when our boss showed us a couple of videos that were geared to help us think about our true jobs and remind us what we really are in the business of doing: BEING OUR STUDENTS’ CHAMPION. I discovered this video this summer and posted it to facebook and twitter, but I don’t think I did it on here–not sure, but either way, it’s a good one to watch (and/or post) more than once or twice…
My boss used this on his blog today too.
