2: 7 Habits of Highly Defective Teens | Habit 1: React. Habit 2: Begin with No End in Mind. Habit 3: Put First Things Last. Habit 4: Think Win-Lose. | Habit 5: Seek First to Talk, Then Pretend to Listen. Habit 6: Don't Cooperate Habit 7: Wear Yourself Out.
3: 1. REACT: Blame all of your problems on your parents, your stupid teachers, your lousy neighborhood, your boy or girlfriend, the government, or something or somebody else. Be a victim. Take no responsibility for your life. Act like an animal. If someone yells at you, yell back. If you feel like doing something you know is wrong, just do it | 2. BEGIN WITH NO END IN MIND: Don't have a plan. Avoid goals at all costs. And never think about tomorrow. Why worry about the consequences of your actions? Live for the moment. Sleep around, get wasted, and party on, for tomorrow we die. | 3.PUT FIRST THINGS LAST: Whatever is most important in your life, don't do it until you have spent sufficient time watching reruns, talking endlessly on the phone, surfing the Net, and lounging around. Make sure that things that don't matter always come before things that do.

5: 4. THINK WIN-LOSE: See life as a vicious competition. Your classmate is out to get you, so you'd better get him or her first. Don't let anyone else succeed at anything because, remember, if they win, you lose. If it looks like you're going to lose, however, make sure you drag that sucker down with you. 5. SEEK FIRST TO TALK, THEN TO LISTEN: You were born with a mouth, so use it. Always express your side of the story first. Once you're sure everyone understands your views, then pretend to listen by nodding and saying "uh-huh." Or, if you really want their opinion, give it to them. | 6.DON"T COOPERATE: Let's face it, other people are weird because they're different from you. So why try to get along with them? Teamwork is for the dogs. Since you always have the best ideas, you are better off doing everything by yourself. Be your own island. 7. WEAR YOURSELF OUT: Be so busy with life that you never take time to renew or improve yourself. Never study. Don't learn anything new. Avoid exercise like the plague. And, for heaven's sake, stay away from good books, nature, or anything else that may inspire you.
6: Habit 1: Be Proactive. Take responsibility for your life. Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind. Define your mission and goals in life. Habit 3: Put First Things First. Prioritize, and do the most important things first.

8: HABIT 1: BE PROACTIVE Take responsibility for your life. | NO Vitimitis- –Do not blame others. Do not think someone has it in for you. TAKE OWNERSHIP! | Think of setbacks as an OPPORTUNITY to change, move in a new direction, turn it into a triumph. Look at it as an opportunity to grow. It’s only a setback if you let it keep you back! | PROACTIVE LANGUAGE- I'll do it! There has to be a way!
9: Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind. Define your mission and goals in life. | “Control your own destiny or someone else will!” says Jack Welsh. | A personal mission statement is like a personal credo or motto that states what your life is about. | Ask yourself: “Is the life I’m living leading me in the right direction?”
10: Personal Mission Statements (excerpted from Sean Covey’s The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens) First and foremost, I will remain faithful always to my God. I will not underestimate the power of family unity. I will not neglect a true friend, but I will set aside time for myself as well. I will cross my bridges as I come to them (divide and conquer). I will begin all challenges with optimism, rather than doubt. I will always maintain a positive self-image and high self-esteem, knowing that all my intentions begin with self-evaluation. --Beth Haire | Religion Education Succeeding Productive Exercise Caring Truthful --Steven Strong
