Respect / Responsibility / Resourcefulness


Respect

courtesy, expressions of good will or regard, to honor or esteem, to be considerate of

 

Three components to Respect:

 


 

 

 

Respect for persons in positions of legitimate authority (police, coaches, teachers, parents)

 




 

Respectfor self – the idea that you are of significant value and that your life mission (whatever it is now and whatever it will be) is important (you have an impact on everyone around you . . . for  good or bad)

Respect for peers – the idea that the manner in which you treat your classmates is essentially an extension of how you view yourself; it is your attitude toward our human nature


Responsibility

obligation, accountability, a person, family, team or organization that one is answerable to

 


 

 

 

The heart of Responsibility is a willingness to accept ownershipfor one’s own social behavior as well as for assignments from authority figures.


Resourcefulness

the ability to deal skillfully with difficulties and problems

 

 

 

 

The "guts" of being Resourceful is a hang-in-there, tough-it-out, don't quit, try-and-try again attitude toward the many challenges of life.
