Start with the End in Mind
There is no way you can achieve your dreams if you don’t even know what they are in the first place. Things are not any different when it comes to teenage life. If teens aren’t clear about where they want to end up life, about their values, goals, and what they stand for, high chances are they will wander and waste their precious time. That’s why you should strive to help your teen create a personal mission statement, which will act as a road map and direct and guide his decision-making process.
You don’t have to go through a lot just because you want to synergize. In a nutshell, synergy is achieved when two or more people work together to create something better than either could have done alone. By taking this approach, teens get to learn that it doesn’t always have to be ‘their way’ or ‘my way’ but rather a better way, higher way. In short, synergy allows teens to value differences and better appreciate others leading to better decisions and relationships.
There is more to becoming a highly successful teen than you might probably be thinking in the first place. No wonder it is in your best interest to read Sean Covey’s best-selling book, The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens,’ to get more insights.
