THIS WEEK HAS BEEN “PLAN B” -Did you make the most of it?

Snow on trees

The weather just messed up our plans! Maybe you had to miss school for one or two days- that you had not planned on. So what do you do when you have to go to PLAN B?

Maybe it’s because of the weather, or maybe your plans change because of people, situations, or whatever…….

1.In every situation, ask yourself “What do I want to get out of this?”.

2.If people let you down, don’t assume the worst in people.

3.Respect everyone. Not just the people you like, or the people you get along with, but everyone. Forgive the people who do you wrong. Take time to help those who wouldn’t help you. Reach out to people who would harm you. If you see someone sitting alone, take a walk across the room and say hi. Make time for people in your life. You’d be amazed at the difference it makes in your attitude to life.

4.Walk away when you’re angry. Give yourself some time. Don’t let “Plan B” mess with your positive energy.

5.Slow down –take some time .Did you know that teens need more rest? http://www.sleepfoundation.org/article/sleep-topics/teens-and-sleep

6.Tell others what you’re aiming for. If other people know what you’re trying to do, what you’re focusing on, then firstly they might be able to help, and second they’ll be able to hold you accountable. Making excuses to yourself is pretty easy.

7.Own your actions. If you screw up, admit it to yourself. It’s not about making one big leap to perfection, but tiny little changes every day, until you get there.

Learn to expect to have a Plan B. Maybe this week you got to do more work on your STAR Events?

Maybe you got to spend time resting. Maybe you got to spend time with your family.

Getting into Plan B mode can be a “Good Thing.”Opportunity ahead sign
