Habit #1 – Be Proactive
This habit is about getting your school work and homework done and doing what your supposed to do even if no one is watching no matter what. It also helps you in school because if you do all your school work you will have better grades.
Habit #1 helped me as a leader by teaching me to do all my work and turning it in on time. This habit could help you by teaching you to be a successful leader in school and in real life situations. One students I spoke with said, “Being proactive is about being responsible for yourself and understanding that you are in charge of yourself.” Being proactive can help you in many ways you don’t even think about.
Chapter 1 – Bored! Bored! Bored!
The first chapter of the 7 Habits of Happy Kids is about being proactive. Sammy the Squirrel was, “Bored! Bored! Bored!” Sammy was not in the mood for tinkering around with his broken toys, radios, and cell phones.
Sammy decided to go and visit his friends for advice. He couldn’t think of anything to do and he was bored. At every stop, his friends asked him if he wanted to do what they wanted to do, but he always refused.
Eventually, Sammy went to his Grandmama’s house for advice. She had a broken radio and Sammy had a great idea. Sammy wanted to help out his grandmama with her broken radio so he did some hammering, screwing in bolts and painting the radio in its original form. Sammy was so happy that he decided to give it to Allie.
Allie loved the radio and and Sammy felt good because he was proactive. When you are proactive, you are in charge of yourself and you choose how you act.
