A Lesson on How to Develop Good Habits, Reach Your Goals, and Improve Your Life: For Teens and Young & New Adults

(For Anyone, Really!)

I am very excited to share this lesson plan with you folks! I am all about staying motivated and personal growth so I decided to make a lesson to help students set clear, realistic goals, monitor and adjust their progress, break bad habits and form good ones, and key strategies to help keep them motivated throughout the whole process. I studied books by Tony Robbins, Napoleon Hill, Jim Rohn, Sean Covey, John C. Maxwell, Martin Seligman, and countless other successful mentors and coaches and concentrated the strategies, wisdom, and steps needed for effective change for teens and young adults. Some topics discussed and aimed for improvement are:

• Psychology (Positive, Cognitive, Social, Behavioral, Industrial, and others)

• Psychosomatic Illness

• Positive & Negative Reinforcement and Punishment

• Behavior Modification

Everything in this lesson is worded in teen-friendly language with relatable ideas and situations adolescents would find themselves in. It also includes helpful pictures and graphic organizers for students to interact with the lessons effectively.

Some notable Daily Thought titles are:

1. The Beauty and Struggle of Self-Transformation

2. Attitude is 99% of Success...and Write it Down!

3. Hard Truths in Life We Must All Accept...But There’s Good Ones, Too!

4. It’s not your potential that matters - it’s what you actually do! (And Ways to Stay Motivated)

5. Adopt an Attitude of Gratitude!

6. Patience, Small Grasshopper (Instant Gratification VS Delayed Gratification)

7. Time Management (Don’t Spend Your Time...Invest it!)

8. Handling Failure...Because Everyone Fails at Some Point

9. Shifting from the Subconscious to the Conscious

10. Happiness is a Muscle...so Work it Out!

Every Daily Thought comes with space for students to personally reflect on the day’s lesson on how it relates to them and how they will implement the strategies and practices personally. This lesson is designed to be worked on and reflected daily and it is very important that the participants adhere to the schedule to achieve the intended desired results.

This lesson is student-centered, meaning:

--it allows you to become a facilitator!

--happier teachers!

--happier students!

--happier administrators!
