every story has a HERO

every hero goes on a JOURNEY

every journey is an opportunity to make an IMPACT


As the hero of our own story, we do not want to simply pass through the stages of our journey reacting to the circumstances of the world around us. We need fundamentals we can employ to help ensure we experience success and we use our experience to make a positive impact on others.

Our impact comes from executing certain FUNDAMENTALS.

These fundamentals work in pairs through an INSIDE-OUT process.

Inside fundamentals help us employ MINDSETS of impact.

Outside fundamentals guide us to take ACTIONS which make a positive impact.

These 12 Fundamentals of IMPACT are:
Have a Vision
Pursue Our Dreams
Seek Excellence
Grow Character Skills
Rise Above
Overcome Obstacles

Each one of the 366 challenges in this journal aims to help students develop one of the fundamentals they need for their JOURNEY.

Ultimately, the journey always provides us opportunities to create a better version of ourselves so we can give our gifts and abilities away to others and make a difference in the world.
