Dream. Plan, Do! Factors for teaching at-risk youth living by choice not by chance.

Dream, Plan, Do!

Factors for teaching at-risk youth living by choice not by chance.

 

By Therlon Harris

 

 

When dealing with at-risk youth it is imperative to develop balance and harmony between choosing activities which are liked and why they are liked. Understanding why a particular activity is liked should be pursued and connected to what you do and why you do it. Living by choice then is the knowledge of ones needs and desires; being able to take responsibility for ones actions; and through future visioning create an action plan for  achieving the goals of choice.

 

Troubled teens generally do not set realistic goals or have dreams for a planned future. Quite often dreams are snuffed out by negative conditioning or what’s being repeated in their lives through peer pressure or negative family situations. Dreams end up being living by chance. How often do you hear a teen saying “I’ll take care of that when it happens”? When it happens is too late! Youth should be taught living today for the rewards of tomorrow and the decisions that are made today can determine what the future holds for tomorrow.

 

From my experience I hear troubled teens all the time saying that they will become “rappers, football or basketball players and make more money in a day then what I make in a year”. “My response to them is that this might be true, but the competition for these positions is great and it’s limited. There’s only room for so many rappers, football or basketball players. What are you doing now to stand out and make this a reality?” If living by chance, reality will always fall far short of the dream.

 

DREAM your dreams. PLAN your future. DO it now!
