Duration:10 Minutes

Goal: this Cognitive Trail will improve the ability to capture your dreams and turn them into workable plans (Vision4Future).

Description: 'Vision4Future' connects trekkers to their dreams, guiding them to a simple, workable strategy that puts their vision into motion.


Step 1

Today is about determination and focus.

Go to the video icon and view two scenes from the film, 'October Sky.' The movie is based on the real-life adventure of four teens from a poor, coal mining town. John Hickam is one of those teens.

No one expected them to achieve anything in life other than to be coal miners like their fathers and grandfathers.

But they had different ideas.

Let us know what you thought when you've finished.

Step 2

What thoughts popped into your mind as you watched the clips?

Step 3

Did their failures and eventual success resonate with your own life experience?

Step 4

In what way can you relate to their determination to keep going?

Step 5

Think about the following questions, then answer them in the space provided.

a) Who will determine the path you follow when things aren't going so well?

b) How much will you allow your difficulties or what people think of you to influence your options?

Step 6

If you have the time, go to the library and check out the movie 'October Sky', or you may be able to stream it.

The film offers a good perspective about determination and the courage to follow your own path no matter what others think or say.

Will you watch the movie?
