The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens
Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
This habit is based on imagination and the ability to envision things in your mind that haven't yet happened.
This habit is based on the principle that all things are created twice- once in your mind and once in real life- like a building following a blueprint.
You have to make a conscious effort to visualize who you want to be and what you want in life, or else others will have the power to do it for you.
The second habit is all about connecting with your individual uniqueness and defining your own personal, moral, and ethical standards.
You must begin everything by visualizing the end result.
Video Summary
Habit 5- Personal Example
In any subject in school, I try to understand before I am understood. I want to fully grasp what I am learning, not talk about myself without realizing it, so I put forth all my attention to the lesson and try to only ask questions that have to do with the subject matter. I listen carefully to lectures from teachers to try and understand what I am learning while geting the full meaning of what they are saying.
Habit 1 - Personal Example
I am proactive with sports. In school, I know I can be reactive a lot, but with volleyball I am always 100% committed and willing to do whatever I need to in order to learn and get better. I use proactive phrases and embrace the responsibilities of my position when it comes to volleyball.
Habit 1: Be Proactive
Habit 1 is about taking responsibility in your life and realizing you can't blame everything on others; you have to recognize your responsibility.
Reactive people make excuses from external sources, such as the weather.
Your language is one of the most important things you chose.
Proactive people say things like "I can", "I will", "I prefer", etc.
Reactive people say phrases like "I can't", "I have to", "If only", etc.
Habit 2- Personal Example
I actually do this a lot. Every time I decide I want something, I picture myself getting it, whether it's a good grade, a new friend, a spot on a team or in a class, anything, I picture myself getting it. I honestly believe it helps because about 85% of the time I get what I want when I set my mind to it. My best example was when I came to Justin, I told myself I wanted to make at least one best friend by the end of the year, so I pictured it happening, and here I am at the end of freshman year and I have made my best friend.
Habit 6: Synergize
Basically, two heads are better than one.
This is the habit of creative cooperation, teamwork, open-mindedness, and finding new solutions to old problems.
Synergizing doesn't happen on its own, it's a process through which people in a group bring forth all of their personal experience and expertise.
When it comes to synergy, the whole is greater than the sum of parts.
You gain new insight on aspects of whatever you are working on.
Differences drive synergy. They are strengths, not weaknesses.
Uniformity does not equal unity, and sameness does not equal oneness.
Habit 3: Put First Things First
To really understand this habit, you need to recognize that not everything is top priority, and there is no need to overextend yourself and say yes to everything. Saying no is okay!
This habit puts the first two habits together (you are in charge and mental creation) and adds in the physical creation aspect.
You do this habit 24/7, sometimes without realizing it!
Habit 3 is about life management, purpose, value, roles, and priorities. Your "first things" are your top priorities.
If you successfully do this habit, you are organizing and managing time and events.
Habit 7- Personal Example
For each area of life, I practice different things to "sharpen my saw." Physically, I play volleyball to exercise, I try to eat healthy, and I try to get enough sleep. Socially/Emotionally, I hang out with my friends frequently, but I also make sure I get my alone time when I need it. Mentally, I like to read for fun and keep a journal, but when studying, I take short frequent breaks so I don't overwhelm myself. Spiritually, I listen to music whenever I have to chance. Music is a getaway for me, it can change my mood whichever way I want it to.

Thank You!
Habit 3- Personal Example
My two main "first things" are school and volleyball. I can't go to practice or a tournament or anything else volleyball related unless all my assignments are in and my grades are good. I won't make any plans with friends if I have a volleyball related activity to attend or schoolwork to catch up on. Volleyball and school come before everything else for me.
Habit 4: Think Win-Win
This habit isn't about being nice, and it isn't a quick fix technique for everything.
Your self-worth shouldn't be based on comparisons and competition. You shouldn't think "I win, you loose," or "I loose, you win."
Habit 4 sees life as a cooperative game. This habit is about a frame of heart and mind that seeks mutual benefit, meaning solutions, agreements, and outcomes are all mutually beneficial and satisfying.
A win-win person has integrity, maturity, and abundance mentality, meaning they sticj with their gut feelings, express their opinions with consideration, and believe there is plenty for everyone.
This habit is a balancing act of courage and consideration
Habit 4- Personal Example
I try to think win-win whenever I get assigned groups or topics. I try to see the good in whatever I topic or people I am assigned to work with, even if I don't like it. Thinking win-win for me means thinking outside the box into how a seemingly bad situation can actually be a great opportunity.

Habit 5: Seek to Understand, Then to be Understood
Your most important life skill is communication.
Most people seek first to be understood, but they may ignore the person they are speaking to or selectively listen, causing them to miss the meaning of what the other person said.
We do this because most people listen with intent to reply, not to understand. We listen personally, filtering with our own life experiences.
We tend to respond to people in one of four ways:
Evaluating is when you judge the words said and then either agree or disagree.
Probing is when you ask questions from your own frame of reference.
Advising is when you give counsel, advice, and solutions to problems.
Interpreting is when you analyze other's motives and behaviors based on your own experiences.
Giving your personal input is only appropriate in certain situations, such as when you are specifically asked to give your point of view, or when there is already a high level of trust in a relationship.
Habit 6- Personal Example
Synergy comes for me in a few different aspects. The main one is volleyball. Volleyball is a team sport, almost everything you do depends on another player, whether they are on your team or your opponent's. The only thing you do on your own in volleyball is serving. You have to cooperate and work together with your teammates, each putting out your individual strengths to make the team as a whole stronger than the sum of the individuals on the team.
Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
The final habit is about preserving and enhancing you - your greatest asset.
This habit is about having a balanced program for self renewal in the 4 areas of life:
The physical area includes activities like beneficial eating, exercising, and resting.
The social/emotional area includes making social and meaningful connections with others.
The mental area includes activities such as learning, reading, writing, and teaching.
The spiritual area includes things like spending time in nature and expanding your spiritual self through meditation, music, art, prayer, and service.
As you renew yourself, you create growth and strength.
Habit 7 is about keeping you fresh so you can keep up with the other 6 habits. This habit also helps you increase your capacity to produce and perform.
The seventh habit prevents your body from becoming weak, your mind mechanical, your emotions raw, your spirit sensitive, and your person selfish. Imagine if you didn't practice this habit!
Feeling good doesn't just happen, you have to work for it.
