Building Your
Social Skills

Putting the Social Attribute to Work

The social attribute is the fourth attribute in the character development hierarchy. The energy required to make a social change is greater than any of the other attributes discussed so far.

You probably can understand why. A great amount of energy — both internal and external — will be required to make a social change. External energy increases because most social changes include interaction with other people who you do not control.

The social impact on motivation and self-confidence will be lesser than the first three attributes. Social changes are mostly intangible and more difficult to measure. Also, the total time to notice a social change will take much longer than the other attributes.

Select a social goal that will strengthen your social attribute. You can use any of the suggestions discussed in this chapter or use suggestions researched from other books. Identify only one social development goal at this time.

Define the tasks that will help you achieve your social development goal. Schedule time to attend social events that will achieve your goal. Suggestions may include the following:

To overcome shyness: suggestions include joining a charitable organization. Your interaction with people will increase social confidence.

To build more leadership skills: suggestions include organizing a private club that discusses current issues or community interests.

To become more friendly with strangers: make a goal to say hello to people on the street and in private occasions.

Complete the concepts discussed earlier. List the social development goal on the Weekly Goal Planning Sheet as illustrated here using Appendix Form-L. If you prefer, you can use the Character Attribute Development sheet Appendix Form-E.

Continue developing and strengthening the physical, physical temperance and education goals from the last three chapters. You may want to increase the intensity of these goals where appropriate. Develop these goals simultaneously along with the social attribute for the next two weeks.

Work and develop all four attribute goals simultaneously for the next two weeks. Use your day planner to record your progress. Check the box indicating completion of the goal for each day.

Mark this page and return in two weeks to complete Step 6. Best of luck!
