What have I discovered??

From reading the book Enrique's Journey, written by Sonia Nazario, I have discovered some things that could help me outside of school. In the book it's a big issue for Enrique to stay positive and to look at other peoples views. Also, in the book the reader will find that it could have been possible for Enrique to do these things. So, not only in school you can learn to be optimistic and look at other points of views around you, you can learn and do them outside of school.

I have learned that the way you approach the position your in, that is how it will go. So if I'm having a really bad day and everything is going wrong then I should think on the bright side, because I'm just feeling angry at the time. If I focus on what I can do to fix it then I will be more confident or motivated and succeed. This can happen at a job. When I don't want to get up and get ready to go work, then thats my fault. I lose an oppurtunity. But if I think of the good consequences that might come, if i do chose to go to work then I will be motivated. This would help me accomplish many of my daily tasks in life. Also, when seeing other points of view helps me think of a different way of looking at something. I makes me be more open and also helps me think of new ideas of my own.
