There's 4 types of thinking,win-win,win-lose,lose-win and lose-lose .Win-win is positive,we are all equal.win-lose is competitive,you're always better.Lose-win is low ecpectations,your easily walked over.lose-lose is taking yourself and others down,nobody wins.You choose how you react,try and stay on a win-win path.
If 2 or more people work together it creates a better situation. Synergy is celebrating differences, teamwork and positivity .you have to remember,being different i ok,we all are.You have to understand diversity,not ignore it.we're all different in some way dont be a shunneror lerator,lets celebrate it.With these situations you must take the "high way"compromise and cooperation is the key.
The high way
You have to care for your body,eat right,exercise or just get a good nights sleep.you dont have to try so hard all the time.Care for your own brain through schooling,activity's and job experiences.Unlock your future and make choices for yourself to better your future.The refusal skill helps you,before doing something ask questions,name the troubles,state consequence,suggest an alturnitive or just leave.
Sharpen The Saw
Thinking win-win has encouraged me to stay more positive. I usually have a lose-win attitude ,in an argument i try and put myself in their perspective,are they lose-lose or am i ? In hard try to calm down and think about win-win,its helped me compromise with others.
The high way has helped me from being alone,when times get hard i tend to push others out,Habit 6 shows me how important it is to stay together.In a group i get annoyed fast,i have learned i have to be patient and understand others.I have also realized with this chapter is arguing does nothing, i just have to compromise.
Care for yourself basically explains habit 7,in High school im planning on taking am P.E and mental health course online to better myself.This year ive tried to open up more and make friends and it has given me a more positive outlook on life.The past 3 years i have been told a to do wrong things to look "cool" The refusal skill has helped the past few months.
