I can continue, even after graduating, to always complete tasks that I commit to, especially in my future career. I’ve found that if I don’t completely a commitment or complete it as best as I could, I feel guilty and disappointed in myself, because I know what I’m capable of doing and I won’t accept anything less than that. This theme relates well to my next theme, strategic. When it comes to assignments and tasks, I like to look for the best route to get it done.
The key to being successful in life, I think, is figuring out who you are as a person. Just as you should know your own strengths and weaknesses, likes and dislikes, you should also know which learning style suits you best. Identifying your preferred learning style sets you up for success by enabling you to work, learn and live to your full potential. While we all have an instinctive preference, or dominant learning type, no one is completely kinesthetic or completely auditory; everyone uses a combination. Knowing how you learn is important as it can enhance your ability to study and retain information more efficiently, and also leave room for improvement in areas that are not your strong suit.
However, I believe that the dark sides of these positive traits are my biggest weaknesses: lack of empathy and image-consciousness. I often have trouble empathizing with others situations did not turn out the way that they had hoped. For example, when one of my Plebes fails a Professional Knowledge quiz, my first reaction is to criticize them for displaying a lack of effort and not studying. In doing so, I am unable to find the root of their problems; perhaps they are struggling in an academic class, having emotional difficulties, or do not even know how to study properly. My other leadership weakness, image-consciousness, comes about when I fail to do what is right because I am worried that others will dislike me for it.
Knowing that I want to improve that aspect will have me focus on it. Finally, my long-term goal is to develop self-confidence. I realized through our different videos in our Helping Relationships class, that in being more relaxed and more self-confident, it flows better. Those videos showed me that it is important to let the client express himself and lead the therapy. More confidence in my practice will come with practice itself.
When I think positively, I can achieve greater things, however, having a negative mind-set would handicap me in many ways, obstructing me from achieving my goals. By internalizing this presupposition, I have learnt to always think positively and believe that I can accomplish my goals in
It is necessary for a teacher to have the students organized and transitions smoothly, but all the other little details, if thought of, help to make for a great lesson. A strong, outstanding teacher must manage the class efficiently and have some level of structure. An outstanding teacher needs to be able to analyze data, set goals, but most importantly have an inner drive to learn more, achieve the goal, and constantly adapt and do better.
This lesson principle resonated with me because I am both a leader and a follower. As such, I am often put in situations where I have to make decisions, I have to develop subordinates and peers, and I have to follow lawful orders even when I do not agree with them. In other words, the three components of the leadership system affect each other differently; yet, we must intertwine these elements into our leadership development to ensure we are effective, as both leaders and followers. To expand on this concept, as leaders, we must attempt to display character strengths, virtues, and ethical behavior at all times.
Of course I will need as much guidance I can recieve but with my mindset and determination there is no way I can be a failure. I know what I want and if it were to change it would only change for can get the better. Personal characteristics that I obtain that are valued are: definite aim, expertise and excellence, focused, positive attitude and perseverance, flexibility, and social intelligence. Furthermore expertise and excellence means that i am determined to keep learning in my
For leaders to be more effective, they must trust "the blessed impulses" (Bennis p.98) and follow "the inner voice" this is how guiding visions are made real. When I’m poised to make a big decision with lasting repercussions, I decide based on my intuition. It doesn 't mean that I should stop learning and growing my knowledge and just follow my instinct. It means that I must grow myself enough to have the correct vision of the future and with no assurance I should be able to predict the future outcomes .Although the future is uncertain and all the decisions involve risk taking, I make them with certainty and confidence.
I also need to work on following up with situations. I tend to be the person that when I find a solution, I leave it alone. Although, just because I find a solution for the moment, it doesn’t mean that I found the best solution/ it will work entirely. I am trying to better myself mentally for personal relationships moving
I want them to know that I worked hard for the things they will have. Of course I need to get myself together first. This is where the hard work kicks in. The first step there is to set my career and be happy with what I end up doing in life. This is all done through a proper education and some support along the way.
The followers of transformational leaders exhibit greater trust, admiration, loyalty and respect toward the leader and are willing to work harder for them. I want to be the transformational leader that makes others realize the greatness within them. In order to achieve this goal I need to start seeking feedback from mentors that I feel were transformative. Their insight will help guide me down the right path. I need to stop holding onto the reins of power and be willing to delegate more.
ASMSA is for those who want the challenge to motivate and sculpt them into a well diligent student. The level of difficulty ASMSA has to offer, is exactly what I am looking for in order to be successful in life. I, personally, want to set an example for others, and show them that life is too special to just make ends meet. I want to be a leader, and lead others into becoming a leader. I want to accomplish great things in life.
Being accepted into the National Honor Society has been a goal of mine since I learned what National Honor Society was and how only students who embody the four cornerstones of NHS which are scholarship, leadership, service, and character are accepted to be members. It is very hard to find students who have good character, demonstrate scholarship, are great leaders, and who are willing to do service for their community, and that is why I believe I am a great fit for membership in the National Honor Society because I embody all four cornerstones. The first cornerstone of the National Honor Society, scholarship, is demonstrating that you want to excel in any assignment you’re completing which is something I always do for all of my assignments
