Monday's Motivational Moment!
IBD's 10 Secrets to Success

Investor's Business Daily is the #2 business paper behind The Wall Street Journal. They have spent years analyzing leaders and successful people in all walks of life. Most have 10 traits that, when combined, can turn dreams into reality.

Two or three times per school year we like to run IBD's Top 10 list as a reminder for all of our Lancers, but this week we do so especially for our 8th grade class of 2020-2021 now bound for high school in August!

IBD's list is compiled from the results of thousands of case studies / biographies of what famous and successful people did to get where they are now - from Ben Franklin to George Washington Carver to Mother Theresa to Tom Brady to Martin Luther King, Jr. ... Not simply the rich, but people who truly did extraordinary things with their lives.

1. HOW YOU THINK IS EVERYTHING: Always be positive. Think success, not failure. Beware of a negative environment. (Put all negative thoughts and worry out of your mind - think positive - be happy!)

2. DECIDE UPON YOUR TRUE DREAMS AND GOALS: Write down you specific goals and develop a plan to reach them. (Clearly identify what you choose in life and focus on it constantly vs. say, setting "New Year's resolutions.")

3. TAKE ACTION: Goals are nothing without action. Don't be afraid to get started now. Just do it. (If it feels right for you, and you truly love it, jump straight into what you choose in life at this moment -- start today.)

4. NEVER STOP LEARNING: Continue with your education or read books. Get training and acquire skills. (Read for pleasure 20-25 minutes per day and take advantage of the fact that OCPS students can access books online. Please see the Media Center News segment above.)

5. PERSIST AND WORK HARD: Success is a marathon, not a sprint. Never give up. (Focus!)

6. LEARN TO ANALYZE DETAILS: Get all the facts, all the information. Learn from your mistakes. (Also, trust you feelings, especially your first impression, for often this is true for many people.)

7. BUDGET YOUR TIME AND MONEY: Don't let other people or things distract you. (Know your priorities - put them in writing - think about them often - move towards them.)

8. DON'T BE AFRAID TO INNOVATE: Following the herd is a sure way to mediocrity. (Move into the greatest vision that you ever had about yourself -- see more in yourself and others than ever before. Don't listen to naysayers.)

9. COMMUNICATE AND DEAL WITH PEOPLE EFFECTIVELY: No person is an island. Learn to understand and motivate others (and hence motivate yourself - see all people as one and have no fear).

10. BE HONEST AND DEPENDABLE, TAKE RESPONSIBILITY: Otherwise, No.'s 1-9 won't matter. (Truth should always be your highest choice.)
Have a wonderful summer and congratulations again to all our 8th grade Lancers headed to high school in August!
