The 7 Habits of Highly Effective teens (Cover):
Before downloading the book, let’s see what critiques say about it:
DR. STEPHEN R. COVEY:
“Unlike my book on the 7 Habits, this book, by my son Sean, speaks directly to teens in an entertaining and visually appealing style (and, Sean, I never thought you listened to a word I said). As prejudiced as this may sound, this is a remarkable book, a must-read!”
“Like father, like son’ may be a cliché, but Sean has proved it to be true. Sean is as effective as his father in providing directions to teens so that their lives become meaningful. Sean’s 7 Habits is a book every teenager should read and emulate.”
“Growing up isn’t easy, but with the help of Sean Covey’s book, young adults can learn to navigate through this awkward time and come out on the other side as a highly effective adult. The 7 Habits of Highly Ef ective Teens empowers young adults by reminding them that it is perfectly normal to make mistakes, but luckily, if and when teenagers get off course, this book will help them navigate the treacherous waters of adolescence. Through the literary experiences shared in this book, hopefully teenagers can learn to love themselves and ultimately discover the effective adult waiting underneath the surface. As a teacher, I like how this book is not only a how-to for young adults but also a jumping-off point for teachers, who are struggling to connect with their students, by giving them the tools to shape a world that they can be proud of!”
Here are some extracts from the book which you can download fast and free:
Introduction of book by Sean Covey :
The world has totally changed since I wrote the first version of this book. Back then, there was no Facebook or Twitter. There were no smartphones. There was no DIRECTV or Netflix. How boring!
Even with all these changes, a few things haven’t changed. Choice hasn’t changed. We are still free to choose what we do with our lives. The importance of relationships hasn’t changed. Relationships are still the thing that matters most. And principles such as responsibility, vision, teamwork, service, and renewal haven’t changed. They still rule.
That is why the 7 Habits will never go out of style, because they are based on timeless principles that endure. In fact, as the world gets crazier, the 7 Habits will only become more essential. There will always be a need to be proactive and take initiative. There will always be a need to seek first to understand another person before seeking to be understood. The 7 Habits aren’t going anywhere.
Over the past many years I have received thousands of emails and letters from teen readers all around the globe, sharing their problems and successes. Upon reading these I picked up on three recurring themes. First, everyone has problems with relationships—with friends, boyfriends and girlfriends, moms and dads, aunts and uncles, you name it. So if you have relationship problems, you’re not alone. Welcome to the club.
Second, virtually every teen who wrote me wants to change and get better. They want to stop doing drugs or start doing better in school or lose weight or break out of the depression they are in or whatever. If you’re like them, you want to get better, too. Third, the 7 Habits really do work. Remarkably well! Among other things, they help you triumph over setbacks, build friendships, make smarter choices about dating and sex, do better in school, take charge of your life, build self-worth, and, believe it or not, even get along with your parents.
A teenage girl wrote me about how learning Habit 1, Be Proactive, turned her life around:
In the past six months, I’ve been through a lot. The love of my life broke my heart and refused to talk to me. From there he started up a friendship with my best friend. My parents went back and forth on divorce decisions. My brother got into drugs. My life just started falling apart. Then my mom bought this 7 Habits book and it really changed my way of thinking. The part that stuck out was when the book said that no one can ever make you mad and/or ruin your day unless you let them. I always based my whole day on if one certain person talked to me or if something happened or whatnot. Now I don’t care. When something bad happens, I smile through it anyway. And when HE doesn’t say hi to me, I say hi to someone hotter and make my own day. It’s so much easier to make your own day than to let someone else do it. All my friends have noticed a difference. I actually smile and am happy for once.
I know you have to deal with a lot of hard things in life. You have bad hair days. People say mean things. Parents get divorced. People you love pass away. Accidents happen. In the larger world, you have to cope with terrorism, wars, AIDS, cancer, global competition, cyberbullying, drugs, pornography, and trans fats.
All that said, I believe that if you could choose any time period in which to live during the world’s existence, you couldn’t find a better time than now. Truly, today is the best time in history to be born! It’s a far better life than what the Egyptians or Romans or Aztecs or Ming Dynasty people ever experienced. Think about it. There is more freedom, information, wealth, and opportunity available today and to more people than ever before. Consider information and technology. Through the Internet, the world is at your fingertips. You have hundreds of television channels and radio stations. If you want to learn about Greek mythology, you don’t have to go to a library or find an expert, like your parents did when they were your age, you Google it! If you want to learn how to play the guitar, make a cheesecake, or even fly a helicopter (not that I’m suggesting that), search YouTube and there you have it!
With your smartphone you can check out the seven-day weather forecast for Jakarta or take high-definition photos of your dog or view a map of every single street in the civilized world. Imagine that! And it’s not slowing down. Moore’s Law says that the microchip’s computing power doubles every eighteen months. I can’t wait for my hover car! The speed of change is accelerating as well. For instance, India and China are impacting everything. Companies like Amazon and Facebook spring up almost overnight and become global powerhouses.
Opportunities are everywhere. Who would have guessed that a twenty-eight-year-old programmer named Pierre Omidyar would become an almost overnight billionaire by writing code for a company he called eBay that brings buyers and sellers together on the Internet?
Yep, even with the challenges of our day, it is a great time to be alive. There is so much good we can do. There are so many people we can help. As one wise leader put it, “This is a magnificent time to live. It is a time when our influence can be tenfold what it might be in more tranquil times.”
As well, I hope you’ll never forget what Uncle Ben told Spider-Man. “With great power comes great responsibility.” No, you’re not Spider-Man or Katniss Everdeen. But you do have great freedom and opportunity, more than any generation that has ever lived, and with that comes great responsibility.
So enjoy this new edition of The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens, updated for the Internet age. You’ll love the new language, stories, and anecdotes spread throughout the book. I wish you all my best as you build a future so bright you’ll have to wear shades.
