Wooden Wins! - Alertness
Our Pyramid of Success focus this month will be on Initative. At American Heritage Charter Schools, we celebrate the core value of “working hard”. Initiative means having the courage to make decisions and take action. Simple as that. Keep in mind that we all are going to fail at times. We must understand this and not fear failure. None of us are perfect. But if we are afraid to fail we will never do the things we are capable of doing. If you have thoroughly prepared and are ready to give it everything you've got there is no shame if you fail - nothing to fear in failure. But fear of failure is what often prevents one from taking action - from using initiative.
Key Idea: Make a Decision! Failure to act is often the biggest failure of all!
