He tells a story about a rooster named Chanticleer, a hen named Pertelote, and a fox. However this is not the only topic of the story. There are deeper messages than what is literally being said.
Maslow’s Hierarchy is a triangle with five different stages and the triangle is split in half, one side is External and the other side is Internal. The external side/needs is professional (lives include things as careers) and the internal side/needs is personal (lives are our physical and spiritual well-being, our values, and our personal relationships.

FYI: My example is not intended to start a religious debate or look down on other’s beliefs, just a tidbit from my childhood. I was raised in a very religious home. I often compare my mother to the mother in Stephen King’s Carrie (don’t worry no closets or blood shed). She instilled in me do unto others as you want them to do unto to you.

When I began this course, in my understanding the purpose of social work was improving the physical environment of individual as in a micro level and to also promote the justice of society as in a macro level. As my learning about this profession continued to process, my ideas of social work purpose have expanded. According to the purpose for this profession which is defined by The National Association of Social Workers, the mission is to " promote or restore a mutually beneficial interaction between individuals and society in order to improve the quality of life for everyone" (Dubois, 2004), Thus far, my journey through the different courses at COSTAATT has yielded magnificent knowledge in the field.

According to the Nurses ' Health Study detailed by the Harvard Gazette, optimism and positive thinking can have healing benefits against the diseases analyzed in the aforementioned study. In the study, the top quartile of women with high optimism had almost a thirty percent lower risk of passing away due to the studied diseases compared to the most pessimistic women.

If someone hears another person feel good about a difficult test they have just taken or after a tough choice they have just made, many will tend to associate the other 's positivity with straight-up arrogance, due to their feeling of inferiority.

I decided to interview my dad, Tim Ely. He 's a certified life coach, financial advisor, and special education teacher. He 's been a certified life coach for about 2 years now and a special education teacher for about 5 weeks now.

This very much fits in with my own definition of success in that success is people impacting others.
The power of human resilience is reflected by how Elie Wiesel remains humane throughout the tragedy of the Holocaust, as expressed in Night. Over the course of the book, Elie shows how he survives the tyrannical reign of Hitler and the Nazis in the camps, with his growth as a person, his resilience against inhuman actions and his survival. These are just a few examples, each being a significant factor to his life, and important to the story. Elie Wiesel shows his growth as a person during the holocaust, one thing that he does is maintain his morals and does not let how he was treated effect that.

The long-term behavioral goal that I wish to focus on for this assignment is to do physical exercise five-days a week. Regular physical exercise would help me maintain a healthy weight, reduce my risk of heart attack and stroke, improve my mood and well-being, and is an important factor for a long and healthy life. The first technique that I practiced was time management. I have a busy schedule which involves a constant balance of attending classes, doing homework, going to work, doing church callings, and participating in extracurricular activities.
