Each morning at the Millennium Community School students start their academic day with reciting positive affirmations. Below are the affirmations recited:
Education is our number one priority.
I will be better today than yesterday.
I will think, I will listen, I will learn.
I will do all I can to be the genius I am.
I was born with everything I need to be the smartest in the world.
Everyday my actions and work will prove it! Everyday my actions and work will prove it!
Today, I will try and try! I will never give up! I will persevere to the very end. I will be great! I know it! I know it, therefore I will.
When I get to the top of the mountain, I will help someone else to make the climb to be as great as I am and will be.
Excuses and Self Confidence
To counteract negative thinking, the following is recited:
Excuses are tools of incompetence that build monuments of nothingness and those who specialize in their use rarely accomplish anything. I will not make excuses. I can do anything I put my mind to. No matter what other people say I cannot do, I know I CAN. I think positive and not negative. I will never say I can't. I CAN IF I TRY!
