Learning Objectives

1. Define success 

There are two main reasons success can be difficult to achieve. One, success is a relative term. One person’s failure could be another’s success. Teens usually learn the definition of success from parents, friends, social media, etc. Unfortunately, sometimes teens develop a definition that is not advantageous to them. Two, success is a broad term. Teens often are not specific enough about their definition of success. If your definition is too broad then it will be almost impossible to ever feel that you have succeeded. Dr. RJ will challenge their definitions to create a unique and specific perspective that gives each student a head start. 

2. Develop leadership skills

Whether we realize it or not, everyone is a leader. You do not have to be in a leadership role in a traditional sense to be considered a leader. You are already one. Leaders influence those around them. The impact that each student has on their family, friends, school, community, etc. is enormous. This is a great responsibility that many are unaware of. Dr. RJ will guide teens to recognize and embody the qualities of a great leader. 

3. Overcome obstacles to success

What is success without obstacles? Dr. RJ calls them “opportunities for more success.” Obstacles can come two forms: inner and outer obstacles. Inner obstacles are produced within you. They are thoughts that distract you from your success. Outer obstacles come from outside of you and perhaps outside of your control. However, they are mandatory requirements necessary to achieve your goals. Dr. RJ will focus on inner obstacles in Chapter 1 (outer obstacles will be addressed in Chapter 6) by sharing tools necessary to overcome those  obstacles. 

4. Discover the power of the mind.

Life can be simplified to one word – “focus.”  If one focuses on what went right throughout the day, that person would say “I had a good day.” If that person focuses on the few things that went wrong, that person would say, “I had a bad day.” 

Teens often can get caught up with teen drama which hinders their success and diminishes their leadership. Dr. RJ will teach the power of one’s thoughts, and how different types of thoughts will ultimately impact leadership and success.
