Lesson #1: Develop Self Awareness
Are you more excited about college than your child? Do you think they really know why they are going to college?
Takeaways from the video lesson….
- Find Your Role Model(s)
Research indicates that role models can have an impact on your beliefs and behaviors. When you consider finding your role model(s), think of: Who do you look up to? Who inspires you? Whose life do you think to emulate? Please do not use a fictional character. While Superman is a good role model, we need to find real life examples of individuals that actually have flaws, problems, and difficulties in their lives. Finding more than one role model is optimal.
- Finding Your 'WHY'
One thing I have noticed throughout history is that all great people on this earth had a vision or a purpose. They lived their lives every day trying to achieve this purpose. They reflected on what they did and what they needed to do to achieve this vision. I like to call this purpose or vision a person’s “WHY”
