Why feeling sorry for yourself makes you destined to fail (by Donald Miller)

Donald Miller isn't an educator, but he routinely shares ideas and blogs that are wonderful tools for teachers who are trying to go beyond the content with students.  This post would be a great one to share with your students.  Have them read it as a Do Now - or perhaps you could even tie it more directly into your content - and then lead a short discussion on what you learn from them.  It's a good one.
