Be Proactive:

I’m in charge! I am responsible for myself. I take initiative and have a “can-do” attitude. I choose how I act, how I feel and what I do. I do what is right without being asked, even when no one is looking.

Begin with the End in Mind:

I have a plan! I set goals for myself. I have a plan for how I will accomplish my goals. I think about what I want to be when I grow up and how I will get there.

Put First Things First:

I will do my work first, then play! I do my work before I play. I know what my responsibilities are, and I do them based on what is most important. I practice self-control.

Think Win-Win:

I believe we can all win! I want everyone to be a success. I don’t have to put others down to get what I want. When there is a conflict, I look for solutions that will make everyone feel good.

Seek First to Understand Then to be Understood:

I will listen to others before I talk! I am a good listener. I try to understand other people’s point of view especially when their opinion is different than mine. I am comfortable sharing my opinions and ideas.


I know that together is better! I know that everyone is good at something. Everyone needs to get better at something. I believe that we can all learn something from each other. I know that working in groups helps to create better ideas than what one person can do alone.

Sharpen the Saw:

I have balance in my life! I keep my body healthy when I exercise, eat healthy foods and get enough sleep. I enjoy learning new things. I know that it is important to spend time with people that I care about.
