Thought for the Week - Overcoming Obstacles

Theme: Overcoming Obstacles


“Success is to be measured not so much by the position that one has reached in life as by the obstacles which he has overcome while trying to succeed.”

  • Booker T. Washington



Try, try and try again. This is great motto for life. When we fall or do something wrong it is so important to get back up and keep going. For most people, fame and fortune is not handed to them and it takes a lot of hard work. That hard work takes a lot of falling and failing but most importantly, the motivation to keep going.

  • What hobbies do you have? What do you like to do outside of school?
  • Have you ever given up on something because it got too difficult or you just couldn’t be bothered anymore?
  • Challenge yourself and a friend to find something you think is difficult and to give it a go. How could you encourage each other when things don’t go to plan?
