Newhall, CA (PRWEB) June 3, 2005
Is your glass half-full or half-empty? We all know that optimists see a glass filled halfway as half-full. Pessimists, on the other hand, view that same glass as half-empty. Your outlook, whether optimistic or pessimistic, likely formed in childhood and today influences how you view the world and the choices you make.
In his new inspirational book, Daily Positives: Inspiring Greatness In The Next Generation (Cameo Publications, $19.95, ISBN 0-9744149-8-0), author and education expert Edward P. Fiszer, Ed.D. offers students an uplifting Âquote a dayÂ to inspire young minds and promote a positive attitude. Fiszer asserts, ÂInspiration to do the right thing, if consistent, can prime young minds for making positive choices. They can learn the importance of aligning actions with goals, and know that doing good things can make positive changes every day. Positive reinforcement is the key to keeping an individualÂs thoughts focused on positive outcomes.Â
More than just a collection of quotes, Daily Positives has a different quote and passage for each day of the school year. These passages can be adapted for any school-age audience, and used as a positive start to each day. Covering such topics as values, friendship, hard work, and so many others, Daily Positives inspires students to be positive and to want to do great things.
Parents, counselors, teachers, administrators, and mentors can promote positive actions each day through guidance and meaningful discussions with their students. While these passages are targeted for young people, they can be valuable to everyone, regardless of age. As Fiszer states, ÂJust as a forest ultimately begins with one seed, a single conversation can positively impact an individualÂs actions and unleash a torrent of positivism on society.Â
Edward P. Fiszer, Ed.D., is a school principal in Santa Clara, California and teaches graduate-level courses in education at National University and California State University, Northridge. His extensive background in education has given him a keen familiarity with the power of written and spoken motivational messages. After incorporating inspirational messages into his schoolÂs daily announcements, Fiszer has found that brief, key thoughts can encapsulate the deepest yearnings of the heart as well as the highest aspirations of students and adults alike.
