Pep Talk

Who do you know that needs a "Pep Talk?" What could you say to someone who needs a "Pep Talk?" (remember to leave out people's names!)

  1. A pep talk is something that you need to talk about with someone or yourself. My friends are going through a very hard time in life. Their mom has died I have been giving them pep talks that this does happen in life. But this is kind of hard because I haven’t had experience with this and neither has a lot of people I know around me. So I do need help I get help from my mom she has had experience, so I use her information to help me talk with them. I get their opinions on it and I help them through it. Pep talks are usually encouraging.

    1. I agree with you that it would be harder to give a pep talk to someone you couldn't relate with. If you don't know what to talk to them, do something else like giving them a small gift, or a hug, or doing something nice for them.

  2. I know someone who needs a pep talk. She was a sister, had a family, parents died, but she had ice powers, and one day when she accidentally hit her sister in the head with her powers, she was locked up in her room and her sister never remembered she had ice powers. She ran away into the mountains after it was discovered she had ice powers. If I had given her a pep talk, I would have said, “Keep on concealing, and when you have to let it go, then you should have told your sister and everyone that you had ice powers. Then maybe they would have understood.”

    1. I think that wold be a good thing to say: its thoughtful and nice, and I think it would fit the person you are describing. However, I also think you could say these same words to ELSA, too.

    2. I do agree some times people need to be in there shoes. They say you need to walk a mile in someones shoes before you know what they feel.

  3. I think I could give a pep talk to a family member of mine that lost a job. I would say that she would definitely find one this year and that she will work so hard no one will want to fire her! I would also let her know that she is doing just fine and she doesn’t have to work any more harder then what she’s doing right now; in other words don’t stress about it! You’ll find one soon enough! :) ~Reece

    1. I agree with you, Reece because if someone I knew was working too hard, I would say don't stress about it, don't work any harder than you are, because your great at your job. ~ Megan M. =3

  4. I think my dad needs a “Pep Talk” I think he does because he works very hard and doesn’t always have a good day. If someone needed a “Pep Talk” I maybe would say if they were going through a hard time, “‘ You got this, it might be hard but when you finish you will be proud of yourself for doing it. You can do anything if you believe in yourself! You already started it why don’t you finish it! Just think you’re the strongest person in the world!”’

    1. Kiera I liked how you gave them something to think about after your pep talk. If you just give a pep talk and they don't have anything to think about after it it won't help because they will just forget it about it. If you give them something to think about they will remember it throughout the day.

    2. I agree because it's like the Journey song, Don't Stop Believing because if you do, then you'll never believe in yourself again. ~ Megan M. =3

    3. I really like how in your pep talk you were kindly giving advice. I like how when you look into the future, you kind of encourage them to, too.

      Delete
    4. I like how you said, "You can do anything if you believe in yourself". It makes them think that you care about them. Great Job!

    5. That's what I think to if I had to say something like that I would. I think that would make them feel better. GREAT JOB!!!!!

    6. Are you trying to make him work because when you say "You got this,it might be hard but when you finish you will be proud of yourself for doing it.So that means he will have more bad days because it sounds like your trying to make him work more to finish. If you give your dad a pep talk I would encourage you to be more clear on what your saying.

  5. I would give a pep talk to my friend who's dog died and was very sad about it. If I gave him a pep talk I would say something like "I know he was a great dog but just power through the rough times and you'll feel better one day."

    2. I agree Randy I would say something like that to.But I think you should give them a little longer more detailed pep talk.

    3. I like your pep talk because it tells them that in the future they will feel better so they have something to look forward to.

  6. A friend of mine had just joined a volleyball team and she was thinking that she was the worst on our team, so I gave her a pep-talk so that she would not feel that way. I told her that all of us are still learning and that we all make mistakes when we are just learning. When people need a pep-talk, what you have to tell them is something that will help them get what they have in their head, out because most of the time that will only make the situation worse.

    2. I agree, when you’re new at something you feel that you’re the worst I’ve been in that situation before, and I think that those negative thoughts will only make things worse.

  7. A cousin of mine needs a pep talk because she is feeling like she is the worst player on her volleyball team. I could say to her things like, your doing great or give it all you've got. If I could go to one of her games, I would, and I would cheer her on. Cheering someone on is a pep talk, right?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. I think cheering someone is a pep talk because in the "5 acts of appretation" Words is one of them so cheering her on will work

      Delete
    2. I think cheering somebody on should definitely count as a pep talk because a pep talk is making somebody feel better so is cheering someone on, so they are basically the same.

      Delete
    3. I think that cheering someone on is for sure a pep talk. If you are using encouraging words like, "Come on, you got this!" or, "You are really good, now go out there and do the best job you can do!", I think that would totally count as a pep talk.

      Delete
    4. I like that you thought about someone who doesn't think there good enough because I think that makes you feel good when they finally get hope. When feel like they can do something. That is the best feeling. I know from experience that if some one is cheering for you it makes all the difference.

  8. I think my grandfather needs a pep talk because he has gone through so much. He hurts every day but never complains. I think my pep talk would be this. “ You are my hero you stand strong and you never quit. I admire you and think your amazing. That you can do anything. Although you live in a different state I will always have you here with me. You can keep going. We all believe in you. You rock!” I think this would cheer him and me up because I know that he has a lot happening and not to mention 24 grandchildren. I know he would appreciate this.

    1. Tatum, I agree with you because you are making your grandpa feel like he can do anything his heart desires, I think you made him feel much better. I hope you tell this to him.

  9. Sometimes when my cousin comes over to our house (visiting from California), she feels really sad, and misses her home, along with her cat, Tiger. Also, her parents are divorced, and she feels a lot of stress sometimes. I always tell her that she can make it through anything, no matter how sad and stressful it can be. Anyone can give a pep talk, and can be given a pep talk! Be the person who cheers someone up!!!

    1. I think that's good because if you say they can do it and give them positive encouragement then I think that will help them the most. Also, you could trying playing a game with her to get tat topic of the top of her mind.

    2. I like how you said, "Be the person who cheers someone up!!!". I think this will motivate other people to be the person who makes someone feel better or who lifts them up with kind words to male them smile.

    3. I liked how you told the reader that they can be given a pep talk or they can even give their own pep talk.

  10. I think one of my family members needs a pep talk because she is a hard working teacher, mom, and a wife. She goes through some tough days or some easy ones, but she is always on the go, full of busyness. For example, she has to take three kids all to different places at different times. She has a very busy job too, with lots of young little kids that she has to teach. If I were to give her a pep talk I would say one simple sentence, “ You will have some different days, all filled with different emotions, but you will always come home to a loving and caring family that will get you ready for your next day of hard work.”

    1. I like how you kindof said that you will end each day great, because I'm right here. It can really give people encouragement.

    2. Great Job. I think the part that says "...but you will always come home to a loving and caring family that will get you ready for your next day of hard work.” sticks out. Make sure to say that to her sometime, I know that will lighten up her day.

      Delete
    3. I would say the same thing to one of my family members, Kendall. She works overnight a lot, so she never really gets to see her family, and this year she works overnight on Christmas, so I know that'll be hard for me, and my family. But when she does come home, she knows she has a loving and caring family and husband always there for her when she is stressed or tired. She knows we will help her every step of the way.

  11. I think my dog, Roxy, needs a pep talk. When my dad was sick in the hospital she was lonely. He was the one that petted her the most took her on the longest walks and was the nicest. I could tell she felt lonely. Maybe, I could have said something like, “It’s okay Roxy, he’ll be back.” I think that might be have been more helpful for her.

  12. Nolan.

    I think my family member needs a pep talk. She is going through a tough time so what I would say is:” you can get through it! I know its hard but you can do it and try to get their. It might be a long time but one day you will finish these hard times. It’s okay to be sad but you’ll finish this one day.”That’s what I would say.

    1. Nolan, that is a good idea. Giving them encouragement is always a good thing. I mean, how can encouragement make people sad?

  13. Someone I know who needs a pep talk is my grandpa, his brother just died. So the pep talk I would give him is: don’t spend too much time dwelling on the fact that something bad happened and remember the good times that he had.

    1. I think that dwelling on the fact will make it worse so remembering the good time they had together will make him feel better.

    2. I agree with you Luke I think that's a good pep talk and will help your grandpa get over his brothers death.

  14. I know somebody who needs a Pep Talk sometimes. She has a sister and can easily be put down. I would tell her, “ cheer up, your sister is wrong, and you are right. I want you to be happy, not sad. Turn that frown upside down!” I might say a few other things, depending on the situation. I would try to give pep talks to other people too, especially my other friends because I don’t like it when my friends are sad or angry.

  15. I think Ignaz Philipp Semmelweis could’ve used a pep talk. He was the guy that figured out why childbed fever kept happening. He was one of the trailbreakers mentioned in Before the World was Ready. All of the trailbreakers in there had a very hard time changing society’s mind to what really was correct. If I could go back into time and give him a pep talk, I would say “Guess what? In about 250 years, you will have saved maybe more than 90,000 lives with your by then obviously correct theory. The harder you work now, the more lives you will save and I know that as hard as you can work is as much as we will need. Come on, you’ve got it!”

  16. I think that someone that needs a pep talk is my sister. She has had a lot of homework now that she is in high school and can’t take a break. I think that something that I could say is “You can do it. There’s been worse. Keep your mind to it and remember that the weekends will be even more fun than before. So enjoy what free time you have.”.

  17. P/N= persons name



    If I had to give someone a pep talk for sports this is what I would say:




    Come on P/N! You got this! I am on your team. If you need me I will be right there. I know you will be great. Your like like the heart of the team. Always so encouraging and upbeat. You work great with your group. You even work great with challenges. This is just another challenge. If you can survive training you can survive this. Now go out there and have fun!!!!!!! *Smiling*

  18. I think my dad could use a pep talk. He could use a pep talk because he is always frustrated when he is done with work. He has 6 or 7 of these ladies he hired to clean houses for him and they are never doing things that he wants. I might say to him that he might need to be calm and not yell at them like he usually does. ~Ben S.

    1. If your dad isn't happy with the cleaning ladies why doesn't he just clean the house him self? If it were me I might say if you don`t like what they are doing teach them how to do it correctly or fire them and do it your self.

  19. I think that my little sister might need a pep talk because she is getting braces soon but she seems a little bit scared. She could use a pep talk so that she is a little more comfortable with getting braces. Even if people don’t show that they are scared or upset, it doesn’t mean they aren’t. A pep talk could boost their spirits and make them want to share their feelings a little bit more.

    1. First I loved what you said about pep talks, second I think that before you give her a pep talk you should find out why she is afraid then point out others who have had braces and last I think that you should let her talk to other people who might be able to say I have had braces and it will be O.K.

  20.

  21. I know someone who needs a pep talk, she had a spider jump on her. Someone could tell her that it was all write and that she was OK, and that there was nothing to be afraid of. They could also help her get over her fear of spiders.

  22. A pep talk I would give to someone would have a good balance of humor and good memories of stuff the person had done that were harder than what they were going to do. If the person was about to audition for a play I would say "You can do this Shakespeare, remember when you got the main role when all those professional actors were auditioning, now get out there and be awesome and if you don't get the part it's fine, there is plenty of plays in the world with even better roles." The humor was me calling the person Shakespeare, and the memory was the thing about them getting the main role when all those professional actors were auditioning.

    1. I think this is a great formula for a pep talk! You don't want it to be all humor, but you don't want it to be all serious either. I think this is great!

  23. If I gave a pep talk, it would definitely be to one of my parents! I think one of my parents would need a pep talk because I know she is under a lot of pressure right now with her new job and all. I mean, she has to get us ready for school, go to the store, pick us up from the bus stop, make dinner, work her other part-time job; all while balancing her new job on top of all that!! This is just me, but if I had to do all that, I would be breaking into a cold sweat at almost every moment!! If I were to give her a pep talk, I would say something like this, “Come on, you can do this! Just remember, I love you!! If you ever feel like you just can’t do it all, I will try my best to help you manage it!! And I’m sure that the rest of the family will be willing to help as well! I love you! You can do this!” I think that this would be a good pep talk for the situation.

  24. Right now I think my friend needs a pep talk, this year has been a very rough year for him, his grandfather passed away, shortly after, his brother got a disease that is not horrible as long as he takes pills but still must have been a shock, and about two months ago his father’s only brother passed away. One I could say is ¨Even if you feel like everything is going wrong there is always a bright side¨.
