Tuesday Teens & Adults – Self Control W2

Week 2: This week we’re talking about getting what we want without steam-rolling people. People
discuss “climbing the corporate ladder” and “moving up in the world” and often assume that they may need to step on someone else to get where they need to go. Do we? We want to feed our desire to excel and explore without throwing someone else “under the bus.” Is it possible? How can we hold onto our empathy and self control while we are charging forward? As Benjamin Franklin said; “If passion drives you, let reason hold the reins.” How an we abide by this advice? This week, your Powerful Thought Assignment is to get honest with yourself. Are you stepping on others to get ahead? How can you ask for what you want without making disrespectful demands of others? Do you need to make any adjustments?
