Learning to Put Others First with Tristar Reads!

This week, we are highlighting superheroes who put others first and show true humility. Read below for this week’s Superhero Challenge and learn about ways you can use your superhero powers this summer with Tristar Reads

Superheroes Learn About Humility

Humility doesn’t mean thinking less of yourself, it means thinking of yourself less. Superheroes help those in need and take the lead with others in mind. They are an example of putting others first. As they lead, their followers mimic their humble behavior and service-minded attitude.

Now, this doesn’t mean that they don’t make mistakes, but they are quick to forgive and admit their faults. You can learn so much by reading: growing in your learning skills and seeing examples of how leaders overcome obstacles.

As school is in full swing, it’s important to keep growing and learning new things through reading how superheroes treat others. We can learn a thing or two by watching how they conquer tough challenges that arise.
