Max’s How To Be A Hero
HONOR – Show your parents, teachers, coaches, adults, people of authority and those around you that you admire and respect them.
AWARENESS – Always be aware of what’s happening around you. Never go with strangers or into unsafe or unknown areas, and always be sure to practice safety.
DETERMINATION – Even though you may go through hard times, never give up or stop trying to reach your goals. If you put your mind to something and work hard, you can do it.
TEAMWORK – It’s important to always be a good team player. Sharing ideas between you and your teammates makes everyone stronger.
INTEGRITY – Always do your best in everything you do. Always hold your head high and approach every situation with honesty, fairness and pride.
COURAGE – Be brave no matter what. When times may seem hard, be strong, keep a positive attitude and don’t be afraid.
LEADERSHIP – Don ‘t be a follower – always be a leader. Do what you know is right. Don’t let others influence you in a bad way. You are your own person.
PERSEVERANCE – You have the power to do what you need to do even through difficult times. Stay positive and don’t let anything get you down.
SACRIFICE – Sometimes you may have to give something up in order to help someone else who is in need. Making a sacrifice isn’t always easy. but it will make someone else happy.
COMPASSION – Try to be aware of what others are feeling. Not everyone is as fortunate as you. A kind word or act can make someone smile.
ENDURANCE – You are stronger than you think. You can handle anything that comes your way. Not all problems go away fast. Hang in there – it always gets better.
RESPECT – Treat authority figures and peers with kindness, thoughtfulness and consideration. If you give respect, you will earn respect.
SELFLESSNESS – Always think about others before yourself. Try not to be selfish. Show concern and give to others.
DIGNITY – Always behave in a way that shows respect for others as well as yourself. Take pride in how you look, feel and act.
