What Students Really Need to Hear : Inspirational/Motivational Video Collection

I stumbled upon this inspirational video and I just had to share it.  So many truths can be heard in the words from Chase Mielke!

Below are a few more videos to inspire your day or perhaps be used to motivate student learning and growth.

What is the key to success?  Growth mindset.  Or as the TED speaker below words it, grit.

Adversity is not an obstacle to “get around” in order to be successful. The catalyst of growth can be seen through adversity.

The Champion Mindset: “There will be obstacles. There will be doubters. There will be failures.  But with hard work, there will be no limits. – Will Smith

    I’ll make a space to watch them all and fit them into my semester program… Motivation, as I concluded from having heart to heart chats with the ones that didn’t do so well, is what they are lacking and they know it, thank you for taking the time to put this collection together… Can’t wait to watch the teacher’s version, Alexandra
