How do we motivate teens to take little actions that offer big results?
Megan reports in about a book she read recently that has lots of great advice for teens: Make Your Bed: Little Things That Can Change Your Life…and Maybe Even the World by Admiral William H. McCraven.
Even though it’s written for grown-ups, Megan sees the ways that this little book could be an inspiring gift for teens, or be a great conversation starter at dinner.
Here are the “little things” that the author covers in his book, which Megan adapts for teens in this episode:
- Start the day with a task completed.
- You can’t go it alone.
- Only the size of your heart matters
- Life’s not fair. Drive on.
- Failure can make you stronger.
- You must dare greatly.
- Stand up to bullies.
- Rise to the occasion.
- Give people hope.
- Never, ever quit.
