What are your BIG dreams? Maybe you’d like to be a scientist, an award-winning journalist, play in a rock band, swim in the Olympic Games, groom dogs, own a bakery or even help to run your country? We all have different dreams, that’s what makes us unique. But whatever it is that you want to do, the skills you’ll need to achieve your goals are the same. This exciting new book helps children and young people to practise these core skills and provides a survival kit for them to dip into when they need extra help or motivation. Some of the themes explored are: goal setting, growth mindset, perseverance, getting organised and learning to fail well.
No need to worry if you don’t yet know what it is that you are passionate about or what ‘success’ means for you. Perhaps you just need some help with boosting your confidence, staying positive or some extra help with getting through the twists and turns of everyday life. Looking after yourself is an important theme of the book whether that be eating healthy food and exercising regularly, getting enough sleep, being kind to yourself or knowing how to deal with bullies.
To ‘be your best self’ means loving who you are, feeling confident in your own skin and achieving the things that you want to do.
