Ambition

Self-discipline through personal boundaries will enable you to achieve your goals.

CHARACTER TRAIT:

Self-discipline is necessary when keeping and reaching boundaries and goals. If one knows where he/she stands before a difficult situation occurs, he/she will be able to remain within his/her boundaries regardless of feelings that seem overwhelming — like anger or sexual excitement. It is important to understand that part of self-discipline is acknowledging mistakes and setting new boundaries in order to continue toward one’s goals. For example, those who have become sexually active can stop having sex and exercise self-control until marriage.

LESSON:

Students discuss boundaries that currently exist in their lives and learn how to set their own personal boundaries.

Students will:

  • Recognize that boundaries exist all around us in everyday life
  • Learn that setting boundaries is important to avoiding risk
  • Understand the need for boundaries in sexual relationships
