A 6th Grader Can Do It!

So Easy a 6th Grader Can Do It

By Jon Gordon

This past Friday I had the opportunity to speak to middle school students in Jacksonville, Florida about The Positive Dog.

When I asked the students, who here is an artist, they all raised their hands. I wondered how many adults would have done the same. We forget there’s an artist inside each of us.

When I asked the students, who here is a positive leader, they all raised their hands again.

I then asked them to tell me actions that a positive leader takes. There was no shortage of answers.

They are kind. They help others. They smile. They make you feel better about yourself. They care about others. They inspire and encourage you. They make a difference in the world.

It occurred to me that as adults we also forget there’s a positive leader inside each of us a well.

Kids get it and as adults we forget it.

But it doesn’t have to be this way. We just need to remember what we’ve always known…and do it.

So here are a few reminders to awaken the positive leader in you.

Feed Yourself with Positivity

Feed Others with Positivity

These are just a few ideas. Try one or more this week. I promise they are so easy a 6th Grader can do it. Best of all by the end of the week you’ll feel like the positive leader you are…and you may even tell people you’re an artist painting the world with positivity.
