SMarkham-CM206-Unit2- Self Concept

1. Define one change you would like to make to your self-perception (how you think about yourself). It might be a behavior, a self-fulfilling prophecy, or anything about yourself you would like to alter related to how you think about the person you are.

One change I would like to make about myself would be the way I feel about myself. I feel that no matter how hard I try and how much I work I will never be good enough to pass college. I just feel I am not smart enough. I would like to change the way I think about myself because I will get nowhere feeling that negative way.

2. Where did you place your statement so you could see it every day? What statement did you use? Clearly write the change you want to make. Use strong, affirmative language to motivate yourself, such as “I will start speaking up in class,” or “I will share my opinions in meetings.”

I will start asking more questions if I do not understand what is being taught. I will make a schedule and set times to do nothing but study with no interruptions. I will think positive about myself.

3. Refine your general goal by making sure it is realistic and fair. Write out your refined goal using specific language from the text: “I want to show my two best friends that I am paying attention when they talk to me,” or “I want to make one comment in each meeting of one class this week,” for example, and format in APA.

I want to change my way of thinking about myself and to do this I will open up more in class and participate more even if I am not understanding the work. If I tell the Prof. I do not understand they will be able to help me more. I cannot sit back and wait for the help to come to me I have to ask for it.

4. It is important to place this statement in a place you can see it every day so that you can repeat the message out loud to yourself and use it to encourage the change you desire. Where can you best place this statement?

    I hear a lot about self improvement these days, the kind of change that heals emotional wounds or makes one's life a little better, a little more enjoyable or productive. It's easy to talk about these things, much harder to do them. I think the only one who can help you is you, just the same as the only one who can help me is me. I'm writing about the actual work of change, what is sometimes called transformation. We might get ideas from others and that can be good. Especially if we know that person has lived the change they're preaching. We might even agree to work with some mentor as we undertake to reconstruct our thinking, restructure our emotions. But if anything is to come of it, the heavy lifting must be done by the one seeking change.…

    To begin, my first goal statement for my U.S. History class would be to obviously, start working harder than I have been working the past semester. I’ve noticed that when I look at my notebook, there are things that have been slacked off. For example, I’ve been slacking off on creating a title page for each unit we’ve learned. This hurts my final score when my notebook is checked, because I lose format correct points. This 2nd semester, I’ve changed that by making sure to work on my title page as soon as I receive new notebook agendas. Another part of my notebook I’ve made a goal on is to spend more time working on the assignments given to me on the agenda. To be able help, I have changed some of my “behavior modifications”. This 2nd semester I’ve changed the way I go about the rest of my day, once I get home. Instead of watching T.V. immediately when I get home, I would start on my homework, with an hour of fully working on my studies, then a 15 minute interval break. I would then repeat the process until all my homework is finished, which is usually in about 3 hours. This way I would be able manage my time relaxing wisely, while also getting things done. This would be my overall modification for my work ethic/behavior at home for the rest of the semester, and year. Another…
