If you have a bad habit that you want to get rid of, it can be difficult and trying.  Instead of telling a student to just quit a habit, encourage them to replace it. Replace TV every day after school with going for a jog or walk each and every day.

Teenagers can be scatter brained at times. They have talents that sometimes they waste. They also have the ability to be their own biggest critic, and find it hard to believe in themselves. But they all have a mission in life.

Sometimes we feel that we carry the weight of the world on our shoulders. But understand that no one can do everything except for God. When you try to take on everything, you can become overwhelmed, and run the risk of burning out.

There are oftentimes when we are selfless and giving to others that we neglect our own problems and conflicts. And for a lot of people when we need help ourselves we don’t ask, or seek the help that we would so freely give to others.

People do it every single day. There are tons of examples of lying that are commonplace in the world today. People cheat on tests. People start malicious rumors about others. People lie to their parents about where they have been.

We all do it at one time or another; we worry about things that we have no control over. We worry about things that can be solved with just a little effort, and instead of working to solve the problem, we become preoccupied worrying about it.

God is with us at all times, God supports us, and loves us. God also believes in us, but there are times when we don’t believe in ourselves. There are times when negative thoughts creep into our minds and hold us back from being as excellent as we can be as children of God.
