2Page 4 CLINCH VALLEY TIMES St. Paul, Va. Thursday, April 21, 2016 Paraoptometric program The following reflection was written by Lisa Rose of North Tazewell, a partici- pant in the PluggedlnVA Paraoptometric program, which ran from January 5, 2015 to August 12, 2015. 'One of the texts taught in -our PluggedlnVA pro- ~grams is The 7 Habits of "I-lighly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. As stu- 'dents progress through the 'program, they are learning 'about the seven habits each "week, which focus on "uni- versal, timeless, self-evi- dent principles that are common to every enduring, "prosperous society," as Covey says. This book has the potential to greatly 'impact the lives of those 'who grasp its principles. In her article, Lisa explains how she was affected by 'the book. Being Proactive by Lisa Rose On the first night of our PluggedInVA paraoptomet- ric class, we were given a book and workbook titled The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen R. Covey. As I began reading this power- ful book, I was convinced that it was not for me. The author knew nothing about me or my life. How dare he assume that I lacked per- sonal ethics, character, and motivation? How could he possibly gage my ability to take responsibility for my actions or to assess the way I handled life situations. I was so wrong in my approach to this book. It was not an attack on my character or values but was about building on the foun- dation of my character strengths and weaknesses. One of the hardest chap- ters for me was the one titled, "Be Proactive." I have learned that I need to be less affected by my physical and social envi- ronments and less con- cerned with situations I can't control. Instead, I need to work to make my actions value-based and focus my energy on situa- tions I can control. Have I mastered this habit? No, I have not, but I am on my way. Life is a never ending learning experience, but I am learning to be proactive in saying, "I will, I am, and I can!" Learning to be proactive is the first of seven habits that I intend to conquer, and I am grateful that through the PluggedlnVA program, I was introduced to this life changing book. While in the program, Lisa earned a Career Studies Certificate in Paraoptometric by com- pleting 28 college credits. She also earned a Microsoft Digital Literacy Certificate and a Career Readiness Certificate.

Jones 762-7963 "words of wisdom" Here are some "words of wisdom" I read and thought you would find interesting. 1. Among mankind's most effective medicines is a sympathic ear. 2. Count your age by friends, not years - count your life by smiles, not tears. 3. Some troubles come from wanting our own way; others come from being allowed to have it. 4. The highest reward for a man's toil is not what he gets for it; but rather what he becomes by it. 5. When your reputation breaks down, there is no place to go for spare parts. 6. The darkest night that ever fell on earth never put out the stars. 7. If you don't like the way life looks, change the way you look at life. 8. Our greatest glory is not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall. 9. Wouldn't it be great if we could get older a little later, and wise a little soon- er? 10. Adding up your blessings will multiply your joy. 11. Sorrow looks back; worry looks around; and faith looks up. 12. The bank of friend- ship cannot exist without deposits. 13. Letting the cat out of the bag is a whole lot easi- er than putting it back. 14. The greatest of all faults is to imagine that you don't have one. 15. We need some clouds in our lives to make a beautiful sunset. Calendar From Page 1 honor roll , or fullerjr1942@ JOIN THE FRIENDS-Join the Friends of J.
