Chapter 8,

 Decision!

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.

(Napoleon Hill)

 

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

Academics.

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

Lessons.  

The name of the book, The Leader In Me!
