The Great Discovery Instructions: 1. You will choose five of the ten prompts provided on slides ten and eleven. 2. Spend time thinking and writing about each of your five selected prompts. a. If you would like to time yourself, I would encourage you to write for four minutes for each prompt. But, you may write for longer. 3.

Highlight your selected prompts on the slide. 9 The Great Discovery 1. Think of a person who made a positive difference in your life. What qualities does that person have that you would like to develop? 2. Imagine twenty years from now - you are surrounded by the most important people in your life. Who are they and what are you doing? 3. If a steel beam (6 inches wide) were placed across two skyscrapers, what would you be willing to walk across it for? A thousand dollars? A million? Your pet?

Five years from now, your local news channel does a story about you, and they want to interview three people - a parent, a teacher, and a friend. What would you want them to say about you? 8. Think of something that represents you...a rose, a song, an animal, etc….Why does it represent you? 9. IF you could spend an hour with any person who ever lived, who would that be? Why? What would you ask? 10. Everyone has one or more talents. What are two or three of yours? 11 12 1: My mom of course, I’d like to know a bit more about art (even though sometimes it seems like I don’t) like she does as well as i’d love to be as awesome as she is. :) 2: if it was for most of that stuff i’d walk across, I just don’t know if it is stable or not, if it wasn’t there would be no point. 3: I love to play VR, Talk with friends on discord, make youtube videos, edit videos, watch youtube, talk with family, make/cook food, ride my bike (when I can and have time), take care of my tarantula, and collect VR stuff. 4: 5: Step Two: The Quote Collection Memorable Quote Who Said It 13 What Did You Like About It? “Impossible is a word to be found only in the dictionary of fools. Napoleon Bonaparte He’s saying anything is possible. “You’ve gotta dance like there’s nobody watching, Love like you’ll never be hurt, Sing like there’s nobody listening, And live like it’s heaven on earth.” William W. Purkey The quote is telling you to be yourself and live every day the best you can. Step THree: The Brain Dump JournaL Entry Take 10 minutes and write whatever comes to your mind on what you think makes a person successful. Don’t edit it, just keep writing and don’t stop! If you get stuck, think of it from the angle of what qualities make someone NOT successful. There is no correct response on this….just write. Some things that make somebody successful are what kind of job they have (does it pay well?) What resources the person has access to, how much they know about financing, stocks, and just money in general. Lastly I think that helping others and making a change in the world is also success in multiple ways. 14 Step Four: Analysis of Virtue Vocabulary VIRTUE: (noun) - moral excellence; goodness; righteousness; conformity of one's life and conduct to moral principles; a good or admirable quality. 15 Analysis of Virtue 16 Highlight the specific Virtues you feel best describe your work in steps one through three. self-discipline forgiveness compassion service cooperation honor justice respect integrity honesty patience kindness humility thankfulness tolerance trustworthy loyalty faith generosity perseverance courage friendship responsibility confidence 17 GREAT JOB!
