The Road to Success Habit 1 is the key to unlocking the rest of the habits. You are given the choice to either be PROACTIVE or REACTIVE. Being proactive gives you the power, while being reactive takes the power away from you and places it in the hands of others. The victim's virus is when people believe that everyone has it in for them and that the world owes them something. Proactive people focus on the inner circle
where they can find peace and more control
over their lives.
Reactive people try to control the things in the
outer circle. They cant control anything in the
outer circle and that leads to them losing
control over themselves. Real Life Example: In middle school, I tended to blame a lot of frustration of homework loads onto my teachers which caused me to not like them as a person. When I told my mom, she put things into persective and helped me turn my "can never accomplish" tasks into "already done". This has changed how I look at teachers, homework, and my reactions. Habit 2 helps you to develop a clear picture of what and where you want to do and go in your life. It helps you to set your values and goals to accomplish in life. You should not plan every detail of your life, but an overall plan is helpful. WATCH OUT!
1. Negative Labels
2. It's All Over Syndrome
3. Wrong Wall "Control your own destiny or
someone else will."
-Jack Welch Real Life Example: After reading this, I created a basic plan for how
I currently envision my life to be down the road.
I did not include every little detail of my life,
but an overall goal for me to accomplish and
to motivate me. Habit 3 teaches us how to prioritize and manage our time so first things come first, not last. It also shows us how to overcome our fears and become strong during hard moments. Will Power

your goals. Urgent

your face things, activities that demand immediate attention. Real Life Example: Real Life Example: Real Life Example: Real Life Example: Real Life Examples: -Thinking win-win is an attitude toward life, a mental frame of mind that says I can win, and so can you!
-Win-loose is an attitude toward life that says the pie of success is only so big and if you get a big piece there is less you to hog.
-Lose-win looks pretty at first then
turns out just as dangerous as
-Lose-lose is bringing others
down in your loss.
-Win-win is belief you and
those around you can win. Habit 5 is the key to communication and having power and influence
with people can be summed up into one sentence: seek first to
understand, then to be understood. 8 Poor Learning Styles:

Especially during middle school and the beginning of my Freshman year, it was just normal for me not to begin homework assignments, projects, or other assignments until the night before they were due. This kept me up late frequently, turning in work that was not my best work, and stressed out over something that did not need to take that much out of me... if I would have started it when assigned. I have learned not to do this because success means putting other things aside sometimes to take care of business. Last year, two extremely competitive sports I played were basketball and volleyball. Before the game, we all got together and made a plan on how to bring down the other team This was great for us, but when we did not win we all got mad at each other and blamed individual people for mistakes anyone of us could have made. My coach got us together to talk about how we had been acting. As a team, we changed our mindset to be win-win, instead of lose-lose. This made us closer and helped us play for fun, more than as a competition. Eight grade year, me and my best friend decided to be partners for the science fair. It seemed like a great idea to work together... until we tried to agree on a topic. We both care a lot about our grades, so it was hard to settle for a projects we did not like too much. We finally met each other half way and ended up LOVING the topic we chose. Not only did we have a good time doing the experiment, doing our poster board, and presenting it, we won! Last year I was in Student Council. As a member, we all had to work together to plan events and agree on details. This was a learning experience because it taught me how to collaborate with other people and add my ideas to a group converstation without coming off as bossy or that I think its my way or the highway. I tend to put 150% into everything I do. This means putting myself and the things I need to do to stay sharp on the back burner. I have learned that cutting out a designated time to relax and get back to my normal self is an essential in performing to your fullest. This habit has proved that I need to save this for "me time" and not overwork myself because this may lead to the work do not done to the best of my ability. Covey, Sean. 7 Habits of Highly
