Join High School Assembly Programs to Stay Away From Negative Thoughts

Kids these days—especially adolescents and teens in high school—are exposed to a lot of negativity. Social media and popular culture sometimes send the wrong message—that they need to be popular, that they are not good enough and that something is always wrong with the way they look or dress or think. If you are a teacher or educator looking to help kids stay away from negative thoughts, it might be a good idea to organize high school assembly programs for students that teach teens how to use positive thinking in order to overcome negative thoughts. You can ask your motivational speaker to integrate specific positive-thinking tips in his speech, including the following:

1. Simple meditation. You don’t necessarily have to ask high school students to attend yoga classes. Simple relaxation techniques will do. Invite a speaker who specializes in simple, open-eye meditation that kids can use whenever they want to clear their heads of negativity.

2. Be with positive people. Teens often define themselves based on the group of friends, they surround themselves with. A good motivational speaker can advice high school kids to surround themselves with friends who are positive and can provide loving and constructive feedback.

3. Take responsibility. Most young adults have not yet developed a full sense of responsibility and often feel as though they are victims of negativity. A good motivational speaker can make these kids realize that they are entirely responsible for what they think and how they react to negative situations. A good inspirational speaker will make teens realize that they have the power to make change happen and keep negativity at bay.

4. Accept imperfections. High school teens need to learn that perfection is impossible, and that it’s okay to make mistakes as long as they can learn for them and move forward.

Teens without guidance may dwell on their mistakes and become consumed by negative thinking. By sharing experiences of how they made mistakes and overcame them, the best motivational speakers help students realize that it’s okay to stumble.

Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

What does it mean to stand your ground? People today are
constantly making commitments and breaking them.  Look at
divorce rates, credit card debts, New Years's resolutions... and
the list of unfulfilled promises goes on.  It it even possible to
keep our commitments?

Stand your ground,  Don't back down.

Joel Penton says, "Yes it is possible" - he knows from
experience.  Like most of your students, Joel was put into
situations in middle school and high school where it would
have been easy to compromise and break his commitments.
However, he chose to rise above the pressure and keep the
committments he made in school, in football, and in life.

Stand your ground.  Don't back down.

Joe will say that it takes character, it takes will, and the road
will be hard.  But his personal experience is proof that ordinary
people can accomplish great things by simply following through
with the commitments they have made.  Your students will be
inspired and reminded of the importance of not just making
committments, but also keep those commitments.

Don't back down.  Stand your ground.
