7 Habits at Home Activity for November

This month’s Habit: Habit 1 Be Proactive

Activity: Circle of Control

Due Date: November 30th

Habit 1 – Be Proactive – “I’m in Charge of Me”

What this means: Take charge of your own life. Make it happen. Don't wait for someone else to do it.

“I am responsible for me.”

“I do the right thing before I am asked.”

“I do the right thing even when no one is looking.”

“I do not blame others for my actions.”

How can I do this in my life?

1. If you do something wrong, say you are sorry before someone asks you to apologize.

2. When you get mad and want to say something, stop, think, and ask yourself-

Why am I getting so angry? Make a good choice in a good way.
