assertive perception personality

A story told by a standout high school teacher in the great state of Maine. One of his students claimed she couldn't finish her homework assignment because there was a thunderstorm and she'd "lost her power". True to form, Mr. V. retorted: "Oh, no, don't be mistaken. You may have lost electricity, but NO ONE can take away your power!" 

Each person, we agreed, has an internal source, a place from which they can draw the energy they need to confront any situation, overcome any obstacle. It's easy to find an excuse, even a good excuse. It's a matter of personal pride and independent will that gets the job done.
