The Midnight Rider Mindset

Take a page from this little guy's playbook to live your best life!

THIS is The Midnight Rider.

The Midnight Rider is a 12 1/2 year old pug with the best possible outlook on life.

He came to me only 2 1/2 years ago after living a wonderful life with a lady who unfortunately passed away. He came into a local rescue, I fell in love, and that's that.

But not really...

You know that there's always more to the story when it comes to pugs.

The Midnight Rider is a spunky little guy with no hearing and 2 luxating patellas on his hind legs. But, do not feel sorry for him!

While watching for visual cues on what's happening next, waiting for treats to fall from the sky, and getting around just fine in his safe and cozy environment, he has given me lessons to consider as I go about my days.

Here's some tips from the pages of The Midnight Rider Mindset:

  1. There is always fun to be had. It doesn't matter if you can't hear excitement around you; you can feel it!

  2. Always find a buddy to lean on... and if you can snuggle with them, all the better.

  3. There is always someone that can help you... if you let them know you need help

  4. .Being kind is one of the most fun ways to be! So many people are kind right back.

  5. Be silly whenever you feel like it! It might put you in a better mood.

  6. Love your life. There is magic in it around all the different corners.

And finally...

There are second chances in life. If you get one, take it.

See how happy I am?

Mindset is everything!!

We are free to shift our mindset whenever we need to.

To a growth mindset:

  • How can I improve this?

  • I am learning so much as a try to figure this out!

  • If I keep practicing, I will get better.

  • I can do anything I put my mind to.

To an inclusive mindset:

  • I want everyone to feel a part of our group.

  • People are valuable and contribute to the greater good.

  • I can do something in a different way than someone else, and that's okay!

  • I can support others in growing their independence in my school community.

  • Everyone can achieve when given the right tools and supports.

Find out how Inclusiveology supports an inclusive mindset so everyone can grow, achieve, and be successful.
