Empowered Choices and Consequences Writing Prompt

Sometimes it's all about perspective. Help teens see that the things they feel they "have to do", like homework and waking up early, are really things they choose to do because it helps them reach their goals. This writing prompt encourages teens to link how their actions have consequences that help them toward goals.

  • List three things you feel like you have to do but don't want to. What's in it for you to choose to do them?
  • How do you feel when you consider that your actions lead directly to your outcomes?
