“The question isn’t, can you handle the situation—the question is, can you handle your mind? Can you manage the thoughts and the emotions that are trying to poison your progress? Forget managing the situation—manage your mind.” Will Smith, actor and producer
This six-minute video, presented by the Video Advice YouTube channel, offers inspiration from a handful of motivational speakers who address how the power of our words, beliefs, and perceptions impact our existence. It’s been said that our greatest gift as humans is our mind, yet it can also be our greatest enemy if we’re imprisoned by self-sabotaging beliefs and perceptions that hold us back from progress, success, and happiness.
If you’d like to discover some fun (and simple!) ways to help manage your mind, and the thoughts and emotions that could be “poisoning your progress,” we invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE. These exercises can be shared with preschoolers and adults alike—because it’s never too early, or too late to identify and transform beliefs, perceptions, and behaviors that are hindering your success!
