Leaders of the NU SKOOL

School is starting. Everyone is putting their summer thinking away and gearing up for school. For many of us, that means shopping for new school clothes, shoes, school supplies and all of coolest gadgets. All of this is cool for those that can do it, but what are you doing about your mind and your body and your inner thoughts? Are you thinking positive and preparing to study hard and make good grades? Are you becoming comfortable or working to change those things you don't like about your body? Are you feeding your mind positive, mind-renewing thoughts about yourself and your worth? I know you've got your look together on the outside, but do you have your mind ready on the inside?

This new school year needs to be about YOU. Making good grade. Giving your all to your team, club, organization and most importantly your GRADES. Done are the times when you worry about who's cool and popular, or how you're going to impress the guy you think is fine, or if your body is what you would like. They are real issues in your life right now, don't get me wrong, but in comparison to the bigger picture-All of that stuff can be pushed to the side. It's not a part of BIG PICTURE. It's only temporary.

Now I know that school wouldn't be the same without it. I mean, after all, middle school and high school wouldn't exist without drama. But it doesn't have to consume you and it doesn't have to be you. You can make up your mind that you're going to DO U, BE U and LOVE U, no matter what. It's easier said than done, I know. Nobody wants to be too different and not 'fit in'. But if 'fitting in' means that you've got to be something or act one way or do things that you know are not you, DON'T DO IT!

So, my advice to you is; make this school year different. TRY SOMETHING NEW. DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT. Give your all to MATH this year. Think about writing ENGLISH papers in a new way. GO outside the box with SCIENCE. IGNORE the people trying to distract you. CELEBRATE the people on your side, even if it's just you. And concerning the inner you; Show your BRILLIANCE! BE THE CAPTAIN OF YOUR OWN DESTINY! BE COOL, CONFIDENT and COLLECTED BY BEING U! LOVE YOURSELF AND SPEAK POSITIVE WORDS ABOUT YOURSELF EVERYDAY! YOU HAVE WHAT YOU NEED, I PROMISE YOU.

Besides, LEADERS are usually loners. Which means, half of people that will laughing and giving you a hard time, will not make it to the top, but U WILL.
