3. How long do you think it will take to achieve it?

2. What are you doing to accomplish your goal?

1. Do you have a current goal?

Ask your students:

up and you are ready for your test. Don’t
underestimate the value of small things done
extremely well; usually, that is how amazing
achievements are earned.

~ Napoleon Hill

WEEK FOUR
If you can’t do great things, do small things in a great way.

Most of the time, when great things are
accomplished it isn’t because the people
who accomplished them had great goals.
Usually, great things are the product of many,
many small things being done in a great way.
Think of the number of small things that go
into an achievement like a black belt. Punch
after punch; kick after kick; form after form;
you learn how to do all of these small things
perfectly. One day, those experiences add

3. What do you do to overcome obstacles?

2. Do obstacles hold you back?

1. What steps do you take after deciding to
do something?

Ask your students:

accomplished anything. There are no limits to
the things we can achieve, but we have to set
aside our fears and actually try.

~ Anatole France

WEEK THREE
To accomplish great things we must not only act,
but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

There were three seagulls sitting on a fence.
One decided to fly away, how many seagulls
were left on the fence? If you said two, you
are wrong – there were still three. You see,
the seagull who decided to fly away didn’t
do anything other than make a decision. He
never actually took action and flew away. If we
want to accomplish something, we can dream
and plan it, but we do it, we haven’t really

3. Do you expect others to do their best, too?

2. Do you always try to do your best?

1. Does your attitude effect the way you
complete a task?

Ask your students:

~ Colin Powell

WEEK TWO
The freedom to do your best means nothing
unless you are willing to do your best.

If there is something you want to accomplish,
you have to be willing to give it your all. Being
great doesn’t mean just finishing tasks, it
means completing those tasks as well as you
possibly can. The freedom to succeed is a
privilege and even though we might not be
able to do something as well as someone else,
personal greatness comes when we are willing
to try. We can always take pride in our work as
long as we did the very best we could.

3. How do you feel when you achieve something?

2. What have you achieved lately?

1. What does achievement mean to you?

Ask your students:

patience, and dedication, we can work toward
our goal of being the best we can be. This is what
achievement is all about.

~ John Wooden

WEEK ONE
Don’t mistake activity with achievement.

This month we will talk about achievement.
Achievements and accomplishments don’t have
to be big to matter. Some of the most satisfying
achievements come when we finally complete or
perfect something we have been working on for
a long time, but those types of achievement take
hard work. We can come to class two or three
days a week, but if we are not spending class
time working our hardest and doing our best,
then we are not achieving much. Through focus,
