    Andres,
    Your topic is very interesting and I really like it. I enjoyed how you told about the ceremony one full cycle of the solar year. I have learned a lot from this little bit that you have posted and I can’t wait til I get to read more about it.

    Dear, Giselle
    I think the topic that you are researching is a very interesting topic that needs to have some light shone over it. The thing that makes this so interesting is the fact that the police force is abusing their power and we as a whole need to come up with ways that we can put an end to it. Another thing that i found interesting is the…Read More

    • Great Job Vanessa, I think your topic is very interesting and never thought about it, as someone who doesn’t play sports. The idea of repeating a saying can change someones overall performance in sports is a new idea to me. It is interesting to think about connecting a physical activity to the mental activity of mantras, and a certain mentality.

    • I think this is a great topic that could also be related to academics. I believe mental toughness could significantly help some students in a transition from sports to school to show them the challenges faced can be beaten with persistence.

    • I like your research so far, I never really considered or thought about the tactics and practices used by Wayne Halliwell. I think that mental toughness can carry on into other aspects of life, not just athletics. I really like where you are taking this!

    • I think this is a really great topic of research. Plenty of people talk about sports performance, but not enough people talk about the mental aspect. This is what makes or breaks you. Understanding the importance of self esteem and self confidence is an important element in order to be a leader and succeed. Be able to shake off your mistakes and continue to play your game is very important!

      Well done

  • Malia,
    I really like what you have researched, confidence it something that everyone struggles with and it is about time that we all realize that it is in us. Confidence is something that I have constantly struggled with throughout my life. After reading this I have closure with knowing that I have it in me and that I just need to change my ways…Read More
