Imagine Success! An Action Manual for Self-Development.
Gaines, Lonnetta
This manual is an organized collection of journal activities and action charts designed to help individuals and groups to set goals and achieve them. It is based upon the following premises: (1) what you think has a profound impact upon your experience; (2) successful living is vitally connected to effective learning; and (3) success is related to ongoing self-development. The manual's intention is to improve students' reading, writing, and communications skills through a movement-based sequence of workshop experiences focusing on the following four major areas: (1) self-discipline; (2) self-esteem; (3) self-expression; and (4) self-development. Users of the manual are asked to imagine, think, write, define, and practice through diary notes, journal activities, research projects, chants, practice activities and charts, artistic experiences, and other exercises. The manual is divided into the following 10 sections: (1) "Introduction"; (2) "Harriet Tubman: A Model of Success"; (3) "Clear Your Mind: Four Affirmative Chants"; (4) "Focus Your Thinking: Four Key Ideas"; (5) "Relaxed Attention: Your Ticket to Success"; (6) "Values Clarification"; (7) "Imagine Success in Action," including two preparation skills, seven positive habits, and a final word; (8) "The Exhibition-Performance"; (9) "Summary and Additional Practice Charts"; and (10) "Glossaries." A final self-assessment and an evaluation questionnaire are appended. (AF)
