Join us in being part of a world wide initiative to raise up young leaders
Today’s youth face many challenges — struggles with confidence, fear of failure, and bullying. As parents, teachers and leaders, we can do something about it!
The John Maxwell Team invites you and your youth to participate in a world- changing youth movement that will empower youth to be the change they wish to see in the world!
During the JMT Global Youth Initiative, participating certified members of the John Maxwell Team will be forgoing our normal speaking fee and hosting local JMT Global Youth Initiative events in communities just like yours. Our goal is to reach 500,000 young people. Youth who attend these events will be equipped, inspired, and empowered to have a positive self-image, respect themselves and others, be a positive influence, and fail forward toward success. The events are FREE and open to all children and youth organizations, ages 8-18. Each event’s programming is tailored to the age group being represented. These free bookings are on a first come, first serve basis and are dependent on my speaking schedule openings.
STAND UP AND BE COUNTED:
LEARNING POSITIVE ATTITUDES AND ACTIONS THAT WILL HELP STOP BULLYING AND LIFT OTHERS UP.
According to the National Center for Education Statistics and Bureau of Justice Statistics, 28% of U.S. students in grades 6-12 experience bullying, and 20% of U.S. students in grades 9-12 experience bullying. Approximately 30% of young people admit to bullying others in surveys.
Bullying doesn’t benefit anyone — not even the bully. It lowers and demeans the bully — who is strong enough to be a force for good — and it harms the victim who feels powerless and ashamed.
John Maxwell’s lesson, Stand Up & Be Counted, teaches three ways to deal with bullying in a positive, affirming way:
- Stand Up — Be confident in your own value
- Lift Up — Use your influence to help others
- Pick Up — Help others who are being bullied by picking them up.
LEARNING TO FAIL:
FORWARD TO SUCCESS
LEARN POWERFUL, PROVEN WAYS TO TURN FAILURE INTO SUCCESS
Many of us fear failure. This fear can stop us from trying something new or challenging. But if you think about it, you’ll realize that anything you are good at now, you once could not do well or at all. We all fail. The question is “What did | learn?”
Anyone pursuing a goal of value will make mistakes and wrong decisions. So the key is to expect failure, to prepare for it, to be ready to turn it into a lesson and a stepping-stone to success. There is such a thing as a successful failure.
John Maxwell’s lesson, Learning to Fail Forward to Success, teaches that failure is the foundation for all success. Understand how to learn from failure, change and grow toward success.
- “99% of failures come from people who have the habit of making excuses.” — George Washington Carver.
- “Many people can learn from their mistakes if they weren’t so busy denying them.” -J. Harold Smith
- Excuse-makers risk being seen as deceptive, self-absorbed, and ineffectual. They are viewed as unreliable social participants with flawed character.
- Lower the frustration level. Students’ seeming “bad attitudes” may be primarily due to their not being able to do the work. (Bacon 1990). A high level of student frustration contributes significantly to negative behaviors.
DEVELOPING A STRONG
STUDENTS WILL LEARN WHAT IT TAKES TO DEVELOP A STRONG AND EFFECTIVE CHARACTER.
Nothing is more personal than character — the set of values and actions that define who you are and who you want to become. Character decisions are the single most important factor that drives you to success or to failure. When students learn to make strong character choices and manage daily decisions in alignment with their values, they can begin moving toward their goals and dreams with confidence.
- John Maxwell’s lesson that | use, Developing a Strong Personal Character teaches how to choose positive daily decisions that will help students align their actions with their values and learn to achieve lasting personal success and build personal character.
- In a recent study of 40,000 American high school students:
- 89% of students believe that being a good person is more important than being rich.
- Almost 1 in 3 boys and 1 in 4 girls admitted to stealing from a store within the past year.
- 21% admitted to stealing from a parent or other relative
- 18% admitted to stealing from a friend
- 2 in 5 students say they lie to save money (48% of males, 25% of females)
- A majority of students, 59% admitted to cheating on a test during the last year, with 34% doing it more than twice.
- 1 in 3 admitted to using the internet to plagiarize an assignment.
DEVELOP A POSITIVE
UNDERSTAND AND APPLY KEY WAYS TO DEVELOP AND MAINTAIN A POSITIVE SELF IMAGE
Most successful people have a positive self-image. While some of that attitude comes from succeeding, it is impossible to even begin moving toward success unless you believe in yourself enough go after your goals and dreams while learning to fail forward.
John Maxwell’s lesson we use, Developing a Positive Self-Image, teaches both the value of confidence and practical ways to develop and maintain a positive self-image.
Self-esteem affects teens in many ways. Self-esteem not only refers to how you feel about yourself, but how you think others feel about you. Do you think they like you? Do you feel valued by others? There are different factors that go into self-esteem. Low self-esteem can lead todestructive behavior, depression, and even suicide. It is important to recognize that teens need to have a positive and healthy self-esteem.
Why is self esteem so important?
- Self-esteem relates to emotional stress and mental issues
- Having good self-esteem correlates with success later in life—mainly because good grades and confidence can allow a teen to start out with scholarships and other opportunities
- It relates to choices; low self-esteem can result in poor behavior, emotional issues, and suicide.
