    “Be the Cheer-leader!”

    Several years ago, Oak Hills High School had a Respect Day that was totally planned and orchestrated by the Senior Class. They started the day by enthusiastically greeting the rest of the student body, staff and faculty as they entered the building. They cheered, clapped, shook hands, and handed out business card size notes with greetings and positive messages, to make each person feel welcome. The response from the receiving students was amazing. They felt like celebrities. What was even more amazing is how the students in the senior class felt being that enthusiastic. It was a win-win for everyone!

    Wouldn’t it be great to have your own set of personal cheerleaders to cheer you on in even your most mundane tasks? You can be your own cheerleader and think positive things to combat the head trash that gets in our way. We all prefer being around happy positive people rather than the whiners so why not make being in your own company pleasant and positive?

    This month, be the person in the room who brings the enthusiasm!
