Why do some people accomplish so much more than others? It's not because they're smarter or more talented. It's because they know how to set and reach goals. Research shows that effective goal setters have less stress and anxiety, concentrate better, and are more satisfied with their lives. For teens, goal setting is linked to improved school performance, motivation, self-confidence, and self-esteem. What Do You Really Want? is a step-by-step guide to goal setting, written especially for teens.
Each chapter includes fun, creative exercises, practical tips, words of wisdom from famous "goal-getters," real-life examples from teens, and success stories. Readers learn how to articulate their goals and put them in writing (a key to success), set priorities and deadlines, overcome obstacles, cope with roadblocks, build a support system, use positive self-talk, celebrate their successes, and more.
Upbeat and inspiring, this book is a must for all teens. It's also recommended for parents, teachers, youth workers, counselors, and other caring adults.
