8 Thoughts become actions A man found an eagles egg and put it in the nest of a barnyard hen. The eagle hatched with the brute of chicks and grew up with them. All his life the eagle did what the barnyard chicks did, thinking he was a barnyard chicken. He scratched the earth for worms and insects, he clucked and cackled and thrashed his wings and would fly a few feet into the air. Years passed by and the eagle grew very old. One day he saw a magnificent bird above him in the cloudless sky. It glided in graceful majesty among the powerful wind currents. The old eagle looked up in awe ‘who is that?’ he asked. ‘That’s the eagle, the king of the birds’ said his neighbour, ‘he belongs to the sky we belong to the earth, because we are chickens’. So the eagle lived and died a chicken, for that’s what he thought he was.
10 Every great breakthrough is a break WITH. If you want to make minor improvements, work on behavior and attitudes. If you want to make quantum improvements, work on paradigms. A paradigm is like a mental model, an assumption, or a map.“All people see the world, not as it is, but as they are” - Covey

17 7 interrelated habits that highly effective people have internalised Going to presentHabit 1
18 Habit 1 Be proactiveRaise your hand if you have said 3 or more of the following:I cantI have to goI don’t know howHe makes me so mad!There is nothing I can doShe thinks I am not good at….I cant control that class!I hate MondaysNot until you can sayI am what I am todaybecause of the choices Imade yesterday.... can you sayI choose otherwise.Characteristics of a Proactive PersonRespond according to their valuesS -> R or S -> freedom to chose -> RAccept responsibility for their own behavior. We make choices according to our values, purposes, and vision.Focus on their Circle of Influence
19 Response Ability Responsibility Food for thought… Between stimulus and response there is a space. In that space is our power to choose our response. In our response lies our growth and our freedom.Viktor E. FranklUnderlying Principle – Individuals are responsible for their own choices and have the freedom to choose.Key Paradigm – “I am responsible for my behavior and the choices I make in life.”ResponsibilityResponseAbility
20 Proactive Reactive Stimulus and Response Stimulus Response Freedomto ChooseSelf-Awareness……..HeartImagination………….MindConscience…………..SpiritIndependent Will…….BodyBetween stimulus and response one has the freedom to choose. Of the three central values in life ( experiential, creative and attitudinal) what matters most is how we positively respond to circumstances (attitudinal). We are only being effective by focussing our time and energy on “circle of influence” rather than on our “circle of concern”. That is to say we are being proactive rather reactive. The proactive approach to a mistake is to acknowledge it instantly, correct and learn from it. Its about Leadership – what do I / we want to accomplish?ReactiveStimulus Response
21 Internal frame of reference / self-referential person: Uses themselves as the context or reference frame. Considers their model of the world as the standard by which others are judged. Compares progress made to their own standards and works to improve against their own past results as opposed to that of others
22 DiscussionList 3 areas where you react negatively on a regular basis to a stimulus outside of youWhat proactive actions will you now take to ensure you are in control of the response to these actionsWhat mental attitude must you adopt in order to fulfil these actions?
24 Habit 2: Begin With The End In Mind “Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?”"That depends a good deal on where you want to get to," said the Cat."I don’t much care where," said Alice."Then it doesn’t matter which way you go," said the Cat.To begin with the end in mind means to start with a clear understanding of your destination. It means to know where you’re going so that you better understand where you are now and so that the steps you take are always in the right direction.Underlying Principle – Mental creation precedes physical creation.Key Paradigm – “I can choose my own future and create a vision of it.” “I will create results mentally before beginning any activity.”
25 Mission Statement Example "My mission is to champion others to grow personally, professionally, emotionally and spiritually by using my compassion, my unique perspective, and my belief in others' inherent goodness, integrity, and enormous potential."When we know where we are going, the decisions that lead us there become very easy
26 Discussion – End in Mind What vision do you have for yourself?What vision do you have for the children you teach?List 5 actions you have taken that have brought you closer to these visions.
