Let’s face it. Life challenges are unavoidable. As humans, we collectively experience moments in our day-to-day lives where we are asked to take on a task that may feel challenging. How do we show up for ourselves when we are faced with a challenge? In this lesson, we will look at identifying limiting beliefs and self-doubt that may creep in when we feel challenged and how to transform these limiting beliefs in order to learn, grow, and find success even through our most difficult times of struggle.
3. Students will complete the following handout as an activity.
When finished, have students share one helpful statement that they will use next time when experiencing a challenge.
Words are powerful! It may be helpful to share with students a personal story of a time when limited beliefs/statements did not help you work through a challenging situation. This can easily be modeled by thinking aloud in real-time when you encounter a challenge during the school day. If students are familiar with the term “growth mindset,” this lesson ties nicely with this concept.
