significant seven

The following list comes from the Positive Discipline Website. While it’s Adlerian, and I’m not, they present some sound insights. These seven perceptions and skills need to be cultivated in children and most of them, it seems to me, are cultivated more artistically than logically.

Universal research reveals that children who become successful adults posses the following abilities.

  • I have well developed judgment skills and able to make decisions with integrity.
  • I am confident of my personal capability when faced with challenges.
  • I believe I am personally significant and make meaningful contributions.
  • I have a positive influence over my life; I take responsibility for my choices.
  • I have strong intrapersonal skills and I manage my emotions through self-awareness and self-discipline.
  • I have strong interpersonal skills and I am able to effectively communicate, negotiate, and empathize with others.
  • I am able to adapt with flexibility and integrity, I have strong systemic skills.
  • Have you ever seen a successful person who lacked any of these factors?
