The School Weekly -3rd February 2020

STUDENT: Soumyajeet Solanki/ V was the Student this Week, for being a young enthusiastic explorer. He shared his explorations on Slooh, the Astronomy platform. He also shared his views on Self Control. He shared that it is a responsibility on our part to exercise self-control. It can be used in many areas. He said that first of all we should exercise it in the area of speech. Too much talk can make us lose respect with the teachers and the elderly. Second, self-control in the area of food, as bad eating and drinking habits can prove harmful. Third in social media, so we should not spend  too much time on it. Fourth in money matters so do not spend too much on non-essential things. Finally, self-control in our thoughts. We should not leave our mind empty but fill it with good thoughts. He quoted "“You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.”

EDUCATOR: Ms, Richa Solanki was the Educator this Week. She shared her views on Self
Motivation. She advised students to be happy in small successes. For success, we shouldn’t focus on failures and mistakes but stay self-motivated.

Achievers are always self-motivated, to be self-motivated, we must have a purpose in life. This helps you to know what to avoid for achieving goals. We should focus on our goal and avoid too much thinking, as this will lead to inaction. We should value time and it's the best utilization. We should learn from the best source. It can be a book, social media or from an experienced person. Finally, be decisive and show leadership. She quoted "Life is not a perfect drawing. The closer look will always reveal a wrong stroke of the brush. But it not all lost. The largest canvas will always show that you did something well. So, live life to the fullest."
