HABIT 1: Be Proactive


Proactive people choose their own way and take responsibility for the results.  You are being proactive when you:

  •  Remain calm.
  •  Take responsibility.
  •  Think before acting.
  •  Focus on solutions.
  •  Take initiative to make things happen.
  •  See alternatives, not roadblocks.
  •  Focus on what you can influence.


Kid Language

 You're in Charge:  I am a responsible person.  I take initiative. I choose my actions, attitudes, and moods.  I do not blame others for my wrong actions.  I do the right thing without being asked, even when no one is looking.


 Ways to practice Be Proactive:

  •  Start sentences with “I choose to…” “I get to…” “I want to…” “I can…”
  •  The next time you feel bored, do something nice for someone else.
  •  Try doing something today that you’ve always been scared to do. Make a new friend or raise your hand in class.
  •  If you do something wrong, say you’re sorry before someone asks you to apologize.
