Back to School with Confidence!
Local Personal Development Center in Menlo Park Arms Kids with Confidence in September of 2014!
“In a stadium of fans, the most emphatic voice of confidence must come from within. If you don’t believe, the potential for success is but a fraction of what it could be .” -- Dr. Robyn Silverman – Kuk Sool Won™ of Menlo Park’s Child Development Expert
September 2014 is Confidence Month as part of Kuk Sool Won™ of Menlo Park’s Powerful Words Character Development program! All students will be studying, developing and experiencing powerful life lessons focusing on understanding the value and benefit of being the kind of person who can have complete trust in themselves or others. In addition to all of the physical skills that they'll be working on this month, students will be discussing and practicing the following concepts both in and out of class:
• Confidence defined: What is it? How does it feel? What does it look like?
• Confidence and what it allows us to do: Take positive risks, try new things
• Supports: What/who helps us feel confident in our bodies and brains?
• Potential confidence barriers: Bullying, failure, boasting and bragging
“Confidence is a combination of trust, conviction and assuredness. Confident people embody a feeling of inner certainty that problems and challenges will work out as envisioned. They believe in themselves, their abilities, and in those they trust. When speaking to children, it’s important to delineate the difference between confidence and cockiness or conceit. ” says Dr. Robyn Silverman, Kuk Sool Won™ of Menlo Park child & adolescent expert, and creator of the Powerful Words Character Development system used at the facility.
Kristin Quintana, Chief Instructor of Kuk Sool Won™ of Menlo Park says, "Confidence is truly at the core of success here at our facility. We realize that all of our students may not train with us forever, however, if every single one of our students walks out a more confident person, we know we’ve positively impacted them for life. That’s what it’s all about for us!
It’s a pleasure seeing our community recognized as a place with Powerful Character, and seeing our students lead the way! As this community’s premier Powerful Personal Development Center, we take this responsibility very seriously. We’re thrilled to help our students and our community to thrive and succeed, and Confidence month is going to help us to do just that.”
Kuk Sool Won™ of Menlo Park’s strong curriculum and the Powerful Words Character Development system provide our students with the opportunities to become UNSTOPPABLE in life. These lessons will remain with our students for life and we're honored to help them achieve the success that they deserve” says Quintana.
