Habit 1: Be Proactive

In Habit 1: Be Proactive, students learn they are responsible for their actions, emotions, attitudes, and behaviors. One of the Highly Effective Practices within Habit 1 is Using Proactive Language. By using proactive language, students feel more able and empowered to act.

Think About...

  • How does reactive language affect you when you hear it?
  • What's the impact of using proactive language?

Practice/Try This...

Consciously use these sentence starters:

  • "I choose to..."
  • "I get to..."
  • "I want to..."
  • "I can..."
