The 1% Journal for Students
366 Challenges to Learn for Impact
Do your students need to increase confidence in their ability to create their future?
The 1% Journal for Students gives high school students a blueprint to use their voices to be authentically seen and heard.
We all have a desire deep within us to make a difference with our lives. But we often look in the wrong place to fulfill that desire and we chase misguided goals.
Confidence does not come from collecting accomplishments, recognition, or status. It’s something we discover when we write our own story from the inside-out and give away our gifts and abilities.
The 1% Journal for Students takes students on a journey to create a better version of themselves every day. Continuous improvement allows young people to strengthen the relationships and connections with the people in their lives. Then, they can move beyond just influence and inspiration to creating a positive impact.
Each of our lives is a story and…
Every story has a HERO.
Every hero goes on a JOURNEY.
Every journey is an opportunity to make an IMPACT.
Will we write a story which creates 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 transformation 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
Grow Character Skills
Be a Lighthouse
Lead by Serving
Know Our Integrity
Live by Principles
Seek Peace and Fulfillment
Enjoy the Journey
