Good Morning Everyone
I decided to combine the Junior and Adult Message this week into one blog. Back to separate blogs next week.
The Adult Message of the week is; Proactive Vs. Reactive
People will fall into one of two categories or somewhere in between. One is Proactive. Proactive people take responsibility for their lives and make things happen that they want. Reactive people tend to blame others for the situations in their lives and feel they have no control over what is happening. Good news is you have a choice in which way you want to be. The first step is to admit what you are. Second step is to take responsibility for your life and what is going on.
When faced with different challenges and situations Proactive people respond differently than Reactive people. Here is a few examples.
PROACTIVE: I will do it. REACTIVE: I will try
PROACTIVE: I can do better than that. REACTIVE: That is just the way I am
PROACTIVE: There’s gotta be a way. REACTIVE: i can’t.
The Junior Message of the Week is; Best School Year Ever Part 4
So we have talked about goal setting, how to achieve your school goals, and who can help you achieve them. This week I would like to talk about the obstacles that may get in your way for your school goals such as getting better marks/grades.
Some obstacles are:
- Tough quiz or test
- Lots of homework
- Vacations and Holidays
- It’s harder than you thought it would be
- You feel like giving up
What is your plan to overcome these and other obstacles. Having a plan of attack ahead of time will help you greatly with overcoming any obstacle that stands before you. Take a few moments to plan out what you can do to beat any obstacles you think you may encounter. Once you have your plan stick to it.
