Over the last two weeks we have been exploring the character strength of Perseverance. Many of us knew that perseverance was all about effort and working at something until we succeed.
What we didn't realise was that the langauge we use (to ourselves and sometimes others) can either help us to persevere and experience success or hold us back!
We started our session off by completing a pretty difficult challenge. While we were working on the challenge Susie recorded the things we said. When time was up we had a look at the board.....we were a little shocked at the things we said to ourselves.
After we had a little time to reflect on this we all came up with some positive and helpful phrases or words we could say to ourselves or others when we are finding something challenging.
Our challenge this week has been to remember the power of positive language and use our helpful phrases, when we need to use our strength of perseverance throughout our learning in Tautoru.
