CoT

  • The following reading was from Tony Dungy’s book, “Uncommon Life”.
    • The familiar line from Hamlet is an important reminder: “To thine own self be true.” Not only will that advice protect us against negative peer pressure, it will also put us in position to affect others through positive peer pressure. We sometimes forget that peer pressure works both ways–that we not only are affected by others, but others are also affected by us. Many people will exert pressure on us to conform, whether they realize that’s what they are doing or not. But we are also in a position to influence them. We can help others make better decisions simply by making decisions that are true to our own convictions.
    • To do that, you have to know who you are. You need to have a strong sense of your identity and your purpose. When you do, you become an influence on others for good.
  • Use F3 as a place to stay true to yourself and to lead by positive peer pressure. This place is special, and it gives you an opportunity to lead, to be yourself, and to be positive.
