Few things can excite a person and kindle the flame of self confidence and self satisfaction as checking off a goal from your goals list. This month I finally got to speak to two 8th grade classes at my former middle school, Coke R. Stevenson. At first I didn’t know what to expect, or exactly what I’d say to these students, I just know that I wanted to do it. I have to give a big shout out to Toastmasters International for helping me grow as a speaker. I also want to thank “coach” Adriana Blow-Price for letting me speak to her classroom of exceptional students. They were all inquisitive and it was so neet to see all of those kids with their unique individual personalities. I am really looking forward to speaking again to another group young kids, it’s easily one of the most rewarding things I have done in a long time. Oh, and their reaction when I told them that I would be giving them their own Positive Pin™ to wear was priceless. I even had them make a vow attaching something in their life that makes them happy to the pin. I shared some of my favorite positive thinking quotes with them too. Life is good when you think positive thoughts.
