From the book,
Think And Grow Rich!
Generally, the youth just out of school seeks any job that can
be found. He takes the first place he finds, because he has fallen
into the habit of decisions. Ninety-eight out of every hundred
people working for wages today, are in the position they hold,
because they lacked the definiteness of Decision to plan
a definite, and the knowledge of how to choose an employer.
A few months back, my Toastmaster Mentor gave me some
Books to read. A few weeks ago I was looking for something
To read, I noticed one of the books my Mentor gave me had
Stephen R. Covey written on it. I remember hearing his name
Mentioned on our calls, I pulled the book off the book shelf
And started reading. It starts out about this magnet school,
That ‘s about to be closed down they cannot meet the
Requirements. The teachers went to the parents and asked
What they wanted their children to gain from school, this is
What they heard, the ability to get along with others and to
Be responsible. They wanted their children to be tolerant of
People’s differences, to be become problem solvers, and to
Learn to be creative. Not one parent mentioned anything about
They made the Decision to implement The 7 Habits Of Highly
Effective People, by Steven Covey.
The children are something like 5 to 8 years old, the children
Bought into the 7 Habits, the school no longer has to worry
About being shut down, because of their success their are now
Other grade schools and kindergartens across the USA that
Have implemented The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People.
I have a feeling when these young people graduate high school
they are going to know which way to go with their life.
We are learning the same thing here at Think And Grow Rich
The name of the book, The Leader In Me!
