Read the story below and answer the questions at the bottom of the post:
"Once there were 3 bricklayers. Each one of them was asked what they were doing.The first man answered gruffly, 'I'm laying bricks.'The second man replied, 'I'm putting up a wall.'But the third man said enthusiastically and with pride, 'I'm building a cathedral.'" --Author Unknown
To summarize, when you face challenges, when you feel discouraged, when you feel like you will never reach success, remember the story of The Three Bricklayers and look at your attitude and visualize the "Big Picture!"
Attitude: "...mastering change rather than allowing it to master you." It's all in your attitude!
1. Briefly describe your first semester story. Have you just laid bricks or have you attempted to build a cathedral? Share your 1st semester story with the rest of the class.
2. What are your GOALS for the rest of this semester as well as next semester? How can you move closer to the completion of that cathedral? What can you do differently? How can you challenge yourself? Inspire your classmates and yourself!
