Today’s Class: March 2, 2018

No guest today.  Instead,

a conversation about “happiness”.

We began by reading an article entitled “11 Habits of Supremely Happy People” by Dr Travis Bradberry, the award-winning author of the #1 best selling book, “Emotional Intelligence 2.0“, and the co-founder of TalentSmart⎯a consulting company that serves more than 75% of Fortune 500 companies.

The article explored the relationship between “happiness” and “success”.  

Then, each student was given a personal inventory asking them to reflect on their current habits and attitudes which could correlate to their success.  Each student’s inventory was anonymous.

The findings were thought provoking for today’s class.  For this 15 year observer of Hope High, the survey results confirmed what I have long believed.   From

a commitment to a growth mindset rather than a fixed mindset

to an understanding of the benefits of

regular exercise and building a network of the ‘right people’,

these Hope students have the key habits and attitudes to ensure their life time success.
