Ball Game-Group members sit in a circle and
toss a little ball to each other (hard objects which
may cause injury are not recommended).
-You can have
group members say their own name as they catch the ball
can go around the circle having each member say their
name, and when the ball is tossed to a member they have
to say the name of the person who tossed the bass as
they catch it.~FJM Clinics

the middle of the circle one at a time, and says their
name and then nonverbally acts out something about themselves
(attribute, animal, favorite food).~FJM Clinics

"It's a funny thing about life. If you refuse
to accept anything but the best, you very often get
a little crabby? remember this one:
good is it to want to be the best if the methods you
use, bring out the worst in you?"~unknown
"Life is an attitude. Have a good one."~unknown
"The quality of a person's life is in direct
proportion to their commitment to excellence."~unknown
"What is Success??
To laugh often and much;
to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection
of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics
and endure the betrayal of false friends; to appreciate
beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world
a bit better; whether by a healthy child, a garden patch
or a redeemed social condition; to know even one life
has breathed easier because you have lived; this is
to have SUCCEEDED!"~unknown
""You can make the difference!~unknown
"If you don't risk anything, you risk even more."~unknown

"If a task is once begun, never leave it till
it's done. Be the labor great or small, do it well or
not at all."~unknown
"Most people succeed because they are DETERMINED
The longer I live, the more
I realize the impact of attitude on life. Attitude,
to me, is more important than facts. It is more important
than the past, than education, than money, than circumstances,
than failures, than successes, than what other people
think or say or do. It is more important than appearance,
giftedness, or skill. It will make or break a company...a
church...a home. The remarkable thing is we have a choice
every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for
that day. We cannot change our past...we cannot change
the fact that people will act in a certain way. We cannot
change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play
on the string we have, and that is our attitude. I am
convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90%
how I react to it."~unknown
"This is what I've worked for,
is why I'm here.
There's no turning back,
I have no fear."~unknown
