Success stories or thoughts about tenacity are sorely lacking in today's world. The power of positive thinking in connection with goals is the greatest concept not overtly taught to young people. Thoughts to Inspire: Daily Messages for Young People is a collection of passages designed to remedy this problem. Through daily positive messages young people can be exposed to the idea that positive thoughts influence actions which in turn lead people toward their goals. Author Edward Fiszer wrote these passages to help educators and families combat the relentlessly negative messages young people are exposed to through various sources including the media. Negative self-talk is common in young people as well as adults and is deeply rooted in the environment in which they are raised. School leaders and family members should associate themselves with positive thinking and stimulate positive morale, successful school involvement, and higher attendance. Read these passages aloud to end the day with a positive message, or as an inspirational start of the day over the school sound system, or in the classroom. The subconscious is a goal seeking, problem solving mechanism that works with the information it is fed. The encouragement of young people to determine and reach their goals will be felt and remembered.
