What A Crumpled Piece of Paper Can Teach Kids About Bullying

A teacher in New York was teaching her class about bullying and gave them the following exercise to perform. She had the children take a piece of paper and told them to crumple it up, stamp on it and really mess it up but do not rip it. 

Then she had them unfold the paper, smooth it out and look at how scarred and dirty is was. She then told them to tell it they’re sorry. Now even though they said they were sorry and tried to fix the paper, she pointed out all the scars they left behind. And that those scars will never go away no matter how hard they tried to fix it.

That is what happens when a child bully’s another child, they may say they’re sorry but the scars are there forever. The looks on the faces of the children in the classroom told her the message hit home.

Winners are Determined to Win Big!

Champions in life set big goals for themselves.

Winners set their sights on large scale achievement. It juices them and motivates them to take massive action in pursuit of a worthy goal or objective. It becomes their primary target in life and has a very positive influence on all aspects of their life.

Highly successful people have developed something called a dogged determination and an endless energy for achievement.

In sports, in business and in the Martial Arts, there are countless stories of Champions overcoming the odds and obstacles that get in their way. Why? Because they were determined to successes no matter what obstacles interfere.

The bigger the goal...the bigger the obstacles. Mostly truly worthwhile achievements are usually very difficult to accomplish. In the big scheme of life, tougher goals tend to toughen us up.

Sometimes real life can be tough. It's been said that the tougher that we are on ourselves, the easier life will be on us. Many people love training for Black Belt and beyond, they understand that it is meant to be a challenging goal.

It brings challenges of skill, will and desire. It brings out the best in all of us and make us better in every way. We become stronger and stronger...mentally, physically, and emotionally.

A person with a strong will...a determined to win attitude...will go much farther in life than someone that is quick to give in to obstacles and setbacks.

The next time you encounter an obstacle and are tempted to give up on your goal, think like a winner...

Winners are determined to Win big in life!
