What being proactive means to me:
We are subjected to our surroundings. What happens around us affects our life in one way or another. Being proactive is about taking control of situations and making the right decisions. A proactive approach offers the opportunity to avoid being reactive to external stimuli, to tackle tasks in a more effective way, promotes self-initiative and positive attitude.
What do I want to change and commit to (modeling)?
· I want change the way I handle rough situations.
· I want get more organized and take control in all situations for
which I am expected to lead.
· I want take the time to analyze and weight possible solutions to
ensure that I am making the best decisions possible.
· I want focus more on my circle of influence and work around things
that I can not change.
· I want use my abilities to maximize efficiency on the things
I do on a daily basis.
· I want take advantage of my impetus to incorporate new habits
and tasks that may influence those around me in a positive way.
Teaching new knowledge:
This school year came with new challenges for me. I would like to focus on teaching the seven habits to my students to improve their social interaction. I want to help my students build a strong community in which everybody feels safe and motivated to learn.
I want to start by raising awareness of their feelings. Students need to learn how to see within themselves and how to listen to their bodies. I believe that they need to identify how they feel in order to take control of their surroundings, decisions and their own emotional state by turning negative feelings into positive ones. Once they learn to identify their own feelings, we can move on to teach them how to acknowledge others emotions and how to impact others in a positive encouraging way.
