I am going to sink this free throw shot so I can win the game for my team!
Habit 5- Seek first to understand then to be understood
To get this job you must have no criminal records and have your high school G.E.D.
Habit 7-Sharpen the saw
I dont want to be called a nerd
I got an F so stop calling me a nerd
What did you get on the the test nerd?
Win-win is an attitude towards life and a mental mindset that says I can win. Comparing and competing is a habit called the tumor twins. Competing is fine when you are against yourself, because it makes you thrive to be the best, but it gets out of hand when you connect yourself with winning or placing yourself above another. Comparing can become an addiction like drugs or alcohol. When you are not in a win-win situation you do nothing about it and let it keep happening.
Habit 4- In Action
Keep your head up guys, we will come out tomorrow and win!
This habit means to see things from others point of view, understand people before you speak, and then speak. There are four primary forms of listening to someone, and they are reading, writing, speaking, and listening. Genuine listening is important so people can understand and listen to your feelings. The three steps are to listen with your eyes, ears, and heart, and stand in the other persons shoes. People don't want to be annoyed by you not listening to them. The five poor listening styles are spacing out, pretend listening, selective listening, word listening, and self centered listening.
Habit 5- In Action
What will I do after school today?
Are you even listening to what I am saying?!
The best way to sharpen the saw is by building relationships with other people. A few ways to sharpen your mind are to read, set a trusted news source as your internet home page, and travel. A why journal can be a big part of someones life because it keeps your deep deep secrets that you don't want anyone knowing about, and it won't talk behind your back. Kids have problems with mental barriers such as screen time, which is any time spent in front of a screen. The nerd syndrome, which is where kids don't do good in school on purpose because they don't want to be called nerds. Last is pressure, which is when students are scared of doing good in school because of the high expectations it creates.
Habit 7- In Action
How do I get my grade up?!
You can get it up by doing extra credit or turning in any missing work
I have developed this habit overtime because I use to feel sorry for myself, and now I keep my head up and keep trying at whatever I'm doing. The effect this has had on me is good because if my team loses both games on Saturday I pick my head and the teams heads up, and come out on Sunday ready to win. Another impact this has made on me is in school when I get a bad grade on a test it makes me study harder the next time I have one.
I will form this habit in the future by listening to people when they talk and take information from them instead of spacing out. This has made an impact on me because when a teacher is talking I tend to space out and not be focused, or when I have a test I would not know what to do. Now I listen to everything that everyone has to say. Another effect this has made on me in a situation is when the other person is talking and I would interrupt them, and then they start to get mad at me.
I have developed this habit overtime because in school I would be really stressed out about my grades, but now I know that I will get them up some how whether its extra credit, or missing work that I have to turn in. This has also made an impact on me because I would eat a lot of junk food, but now I don't eat as much of that but instead eat healthier things such as salads, fruit, energy bars, etc. This has also made an effect on me because when I feel down I always go to a friend that I know could cheer me up.
