Discipline to Success:
The Social Attribute
The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.
Franklin Delano Roosevelt
Using the Week to Put the Social Attribute to Work
For the past week, our readers are implementing plans to develop their social skills. It will be a 2-week process. So continue to make the social improvements that you set for yourself.
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.
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.
Allow us to repeat the steps from last week regarding your social development goal.
Select a social goal that will strengthen your social attribute. You can use any of the suggestions discussed in this blog 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 next week to complete Step 6.
