This coming school year many students will step on a school campus excited to learn, discover and be taught the needed skills to pass a state standardized test. Many will do well on the test but fail in the test of life.
“This is a tragedy,” says Jamahl Keyes, student leadership trainer, Character development expert and top selling author. “It doesn’t matter how good a student does on a math, science or language arts test, if they do not have Character Development skills, they will not be successful.”
Here are the seven deadly Character Development sins every student must know to be successful:
- Not being Trustworthy as a student, every student must know that trustworthiness is a Character Development trait that will open doors for them.
- Not respecting yourself and other students, show me a student that doesn’t respect themselves, I’ll show you a student that doesn’t know how to respect others.
- Not Taking Responsibilityas a student, we live in a society where students and adults don’t take responsibility for their actions.
- Not Caring for yourselfand for other students in your class.
- Not seeking and looking to be a good citizen.
- Not Pursuing excellenceand pushing to be and do the best you can do.
- Not Demonstrating integrityno matter what situation comes up.
