A. SAY THIS: For our group activity today, let’s all take out a new sheet of paper. Write the words “WHAT I WANT” at the top. Now take about 3 minutes to write down something you want in the future. This could be a skill, a relationship, a possession, a career, you name it. When we finish, a few of you will have a chance to share your idea and discuss it with the class.
B. When the students finish, ask for volunteers to share what they wrote and why they wrote it.
C. For each volunteer, have the group discuss some POSSIBLE CHALLENGES they could face and some POSSIBLE SOLUTIONS for using self-discipline to overcome those challenges.
