Becoming intentional about success
For this discussion, please be sure to watch the Got Amenities video linked here:
Success is not a “by chance” thing; it is intentional. Whether it is in our personal lives, school, or profession/work, success is something fostered through our own initiative. In fact, in the Leader Insights video, Amelia Manning talked about success as knowing what resources to draw upon, regardless of whether you are a student or leader. Resources can take many shapes and forms. Some resources are tangible things like tools and apps, while others may include people and services. Even our own skills, which we continually develop, can be considered a resource to help us achieve our goals.
This week, you are learning more about reading and retention in the textbook, in addition to exploring some of SNHU’s many amenities (resources) for students. Taking these things into consideration, and considering that success is intentional, work to address the following:
1. How does knowing more about yourself enable you to find the “right” resources to draw upon? Now, provide an example of a time when you talked yourself out of using a resource or asking for help. What caused that internal conversation to occur, or what made you hesitate? How might you overcome that hesitation in the future?
2. As you look at your available resources, what is one SNHU resource/amenity that you can draw upon to help you intentionally reach your goals? What is a resource outside of SNHU that will assist you as well? Explain why you chose these resources and how they will help you achieve intentional success.
