Road to Success

Think about the following quote: “The road to success is always under construction.”

What does the road to success mean? Why do you think this ‘road’ is always under construction? Now watch the short clip below.

Think about the following questions:

  1. In what way is your character also always under construction?
  2. Construction implies there is “work” to be done. How does this apply to you as a student? How about in the future?

Remember: Good character is important for success and meaningful relationships. Character not only defines who you are; it determines your future!

Why Should I? Wednesdays: Our kids are influenced every day at home, in their communities, and in media.  Peer pressure can exert a powerful influence because friends play such a significant role in the lives of our children. Teens begin to question the authority of parents, schools, government, and other traditional institutions.  Their ability to think abstractly allows them to establish their own identity, to include their own belief system.  Engaging our youth in discussions about moral reasoning can guide the development of their values and decision-making skills.  It can also allow them to show off a different perspective to a dilemma, one which you may not have considered.
