Life lessons - Thought Of The Week

Theme: Life lessons


“Some people are born with very little; some are fortunate enough to have it all. When I grew up, we didn’t have much. I had to hustle to get what I wanted… but I had that hunger for more. I didn’t always make the right choices, but I learned from my mistakes.”

Curtis Jackson



Life can hand us some very sour lemons sometimes. We look at other peoples’ lives and we can be jealous or envious of what they have, how their family always look so happy or how successful that person is with academic achievement. Despite our background or current situation, we can make choices to strive for more and when we get things wrong, to learn from our mistakes.

  • What do you want to have achieved in 5 years’ time? 10 years’ time?
  • Are achievements always about academic/financial goals?
  • In your pairs think about how your mindset might be holding you back. How could you make a change to try to strive to be the best version of you?
