    Been thinking, as our beliefs are simply a sum total of our experiences and perceptions of those experiences....then if we hope to change anyone's belief we should strive to change their experience, starting with the ccurrent interaction.

    That caused me to think of my reactions.

    This is a topic I’ve been thinking a lot about too. I keep telling my students that they need to model the positive to help overcome bullying and other issues.

    Personally, outside of work, I find myself challenging myself to take that approach in every situation and interaction I have. It is tough to pause and check my gut reactions sometimes. I still have a lot to work on.

    All of us are works in progress...

    Those that don't believe so are stagnating
