Hello everyone! How has your day been?
I feel that positivity and self determination can get people very far in life. My accelerated geometry teacher, Mr. Billingsley, always quoted this, “attitude over aptitude.” According to dictionary.com, “attitude” is “manner, disposition, feeling, position, etc., with regard to a person or thing; tendency or orientation, especially of the mind” and “aptitude” is capability; ability; innate or acquired capacity for something; talent; readiness or quickness in learning; intelligence.” I agree with my teacher because a positive attitude and dedication increases your effort in whatever you’re working on. Whenever Mr. Billingsley gave us a math chapter test, we would always groan and say things like, “Well, who’s ready to fail!? There goes my B… At least you have a B…” But he would always cheer us up and play his theme song, which is Hall of Fame by The Script ft. Will.i.am.
Saying things like “I can never get it…it’s too hard…this is too difficult for me…only in my dreams…I give up,” will only hold you back from being awesome. Hopefully this song will help your change those thoughts. Let’s figure out the meaning of “Hall of Fame,” for all those who are in need of encouragement (which is everyone)!
