Pondering Character and Destiny

I love this quote that I stumbled upon long ago...

Sow a thought, reap an action.
Sow an action, reap a habit.
Sow a habit, reap a character.
Sow a character, reap a destiny!

Reflecting on this quote with young people creates a great opportunity to talk about several asset categories, including Positive Values, Empowerment, Social Competencies, Boundaries & Expectations and Positive Identity.  Take time to laugh & bond with youth, but be brave enough to talk about the hard things, the life-changing things, as well!
