Quotes To Inspire A Can Do Attitude


Over half term week we had a huge break through with Little Button. She wrote her very first creative writing story. I say it’s a huge break through, because she’s in reception class and at 5 years old that’s a pretty huge accomplishment. She practically filled an A4 page with her story about Lucy the caterpillar, her take on the life cycle of a butterfly. It did contain lots of “and then’s” and there was help with spelling some tricky words. But, she did it. And I couldn’t be prouder! I just wish I’d taken a photo of what she had achieved.

Before her pencil hit the paper, there were moments where she felt like she wouldn’t be able to do. But with a little bit of encouragement (and the wise words of Winnie The Pooh) once she had that ‘can do’ attitude motivating her, off she went.

    Oh go Little Button, what an exciting and proud moment. I love inspirational quotes. I like “Dreams don’t work unless you do” and “FEAR has 2 meanings 1. Forget everything and run 2. Face everything and rise. The choice is yours.” “Believe you can and you’re half way there”. “It always seems impossible until its done”… #DreamTeam

    Awesome! She is so growing up! I love these first writing attempts; you must keep it. The ‘and then’ are all part of the masterpiece! As a teacher, my favourite thing I say a lot is ‘wow! You are amazing!” And “you have worked so hard in that!” The power of a positive mind set is so affirming….I feel a post coming in! Thanks for sharing these fab quotes. #dreamteam

    Fantastic! Well done Little Button. I love your quotes, I’ve used them to motivate myself many times!

    Love inspirational quotes. Here are three of mine that I love. “Never get so busy making a living that you forget to make a life” ; “Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try”; “A negative mind will never give you a positive life.”
    Thanks for sharing yours.#Dreamteam

    Well done little button! Getting kids to believe they can do things is so important but also really hard. I wish I could bottle up that moment of pride when they’ve accomplished something to remind them to go for it then next time they have doubts. #dreamteam

    I love a good quote, very inspiring on this cold Tuesday X #dreamteam

  10. February 27, 2018 / 11:28 am

    That’s brilliant, well done Little Button! Winnie The Pooh has so many lovely quotes #dreamteam

  11. February 27, 2018 / 11:29 am

    Well done Little Button! I love all of these quotes #DreamTeam

  12. February 27, 2018 / 11:40 am

    That’s awesome, congrats to the little one on the story.

    Some quotes I like are: “Feel the fear and do it anyway,” I don’t know who said it; “Keep calm and carry on,” the stoic British classic; “whatever the human mind can believe, the human mind can achieve,” Napoleon Hill; and, “Success is a mindset,” Will Ferrell’s character in “Get Hard”

    I love the Winnie the Pooh on. He’s one wise bear. I’m not deeply religious, but for me the words of the serenity prayer get me through most situations in life. Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference. #dreamteam

    Oh Little Buttons how adorable are you!!! I am all for inspiration, little man has just got into painting and writing (all scribbles for a 21 month old) and I’m super excited to cover the fridge with so many drawings!! #dreamteam

  15. February 27, 2018 / 1:26 pm

    I love that Dr Seuss quote, and it’s so satisfying watching them not only write something down, but actually want to write 🙂 great stuff #dreamteam

  16. February 27, 2018 / 4:22 pm

    Yay Little Button! You must be so proud! My favourite is “If you think you can, or you think you can’t, you’re probably right!” Anything Pooh Bear says is gospel though if you ask me xx #DreamTeam

  17. February 27, 2018 / 4:25 pm

  22. February 27, 2018 / 8:33 pm

    Love this post. We are all about creating positive mind-sets here. I use the light box for when they come down to have breakfast in the morning so that they see a positive thought at the start of the day. I will be using some of these quotes I think. #dreamteam

  23. February 28, 2018 / 7:29 am

    The Dr Seuss one is one of my all time faves. Also, “Reach for the moon, even if you miss you’ll land among the stars” #dreamteam

  24. February 28, 2018 / 12:08 pm

  33. March 4, 2018 / 12:28 am

    Lovely quotes Annette. I’m a sucker for great quotes. Another fav one of mine along these lines is this one by Karl Marx:
    “The philosophers have only interpreted the world in various ways. The point, however, is to change it…”

  34. March 4, 2018 / 5:15 am

    I love your quote that we’re here to be awesome! #DreamTeam

  35. March 4, 2018 / 9:35 am

    Well done Little Button! Such an inspirational post. I always remind myself of the Winnie the Pooh quote you’ve included whenever I’m feeling low #DreamTeam

  36. March 5, 2018 / 10:32 am

    That’s a fabulous achievement! Well done little button! Is that typical for UK 5 years olds? To be able to read well enough to be able to write a story?

    • March 5, 2018 / 10:40 pm

      I don’t think it’s generally typical for a reception class child. But they all have their leaps and bounds moments at different times – so we are all about embracing when they happen.

  37. March 5, 2018 / 8:33 pm

    Only me, popping by from #DreamTeam! I love this quote and I love that Little Button is writing. Taking after her mum! Long may it continue! xxx
