Principles of Success Plan
PSY 115- Psychology of Success
Goal 1: My first goal is to schedule time to complete my assignments in my daily routine over the next five months by using a chart graph that I will post on the wall in my living room. When achieving this goal, it is essential to meeting my long-term goals such as completing my classes on time, getting my bachelors degree and finding a good job that will help support my family. By scheduling my daily routines will allow me to manage my time so that I can pursue the goals that are very important to me.
Goal 2: My second goal is to be able to increase my income by 25% within the next eight months so that I can better support my family. When being able to improve my pay, it will allow me to reduce my financial stress and help with the security of my family. I will have less pressure about being able to afford food, rent, and other bills and allow me to focus on the other goals that set for myself.
Goal 3: My third goal is to achieve As or Bs in all my classes through school. By completing this goal, it will allow me to accomplish my long-term goals and earn my degree which will allow finding a better job in the future. The better my grades are, the more I feel I will be successful in school and achieve my goals.
According to Tomasik and Freund (Myers, 2016), the more you pursuit of multiple goals can make it easy to manage when there is a facilitative relationship among these goals. When achieving my first goal, it is instrumental to accomplish my goals. When maximum my goals. I plan to be careful when chosen my work. My schedule goals will help me achieve my other goals and all three of my align life goals. Additionally, each target follow the best practices suggested in Soomo Learning’s “Managing Multiple Goals” (Soomo Learning, 2016, p. 5.21)d
Principle 1: When there are distractions, learning requires extra time and effort.
Selective attention is when the brain selectively filters out massive amounts of sensory information to focus on just one message (Garnett, 2014). Particular attention also allows a person to concentrate on the essential information while being able to ignore the irrelevant stuff. It can selectively filter out things that you want to know. Selective attention can cause you not to get enough sleep, which leads to you having trouble with learning. It can cause you not to focus on what is essential. Selective attention is the phenomenon in which a person can identify specific concepts and imbibe them into their thinking thought process that a person would priorities their information (Myers, 2016)
In my life, I found that when I get a good night sleep, it helps to complete my task and improve my distraction that I might have thought out the day. Every morning I start out with a cup of coffee to help my performance in my duties for the day. After making sure that I get a least eight of sleep a day, it will help me to focus more on the critical things that must do for that day without any distractions. Although this might be hard for ten kids and new grandbaby I will do my best make sure that I have a good night sleep.
Principle 2: I learned that it could practice before a test it could get a better grade on it.
When using practice testing, it is a form of low- stakes and no-stakes testing it is administered outside of a classroom and done by the students by using such tools as flash cards (Khan Academy, 2013). The practice has shown to improve one ability to retain the information and perform at a high level. John Dunlosky and his researchers (Myers, 2016, p. 100) had found more than a hundred years of research that had yielded several hundred experiments show that practice test enhances the learning and retention. This does not mean that if we do not take do practice test will learn less.
I learned that it could practice before a test it could get a better grade on it. I also found using flash card can be very helpful as well. In the future, I plan to make sure that I am going to set time to practice before a test.
Principle 3: when observing others it get the ability to learning things.
Observational learning is when learning by watching others (Myers, 2016). These can occur when we spend time with others that are striving for the same goals. These allow us to see what will work or what will not work. If we were imitating or avoiding what the surrounding people are doing, we become better equipped to pursue and attain our goals. We are sometimes conscious of it or not, observing others can as cause us to learn and change our behavior which may be for the better or for worse. There is a lot of time behavior change can, and observation is incidental and can occur in the context of others activities. We are sometimes conscious of it or not, observing others can as cause us to learn and change our behavior which may be for the better or for worse. There is a lot of time behavior change can, and observation is incidental and can occur in the context of others activities (Gardner, Lally, & Wardle, 2012).
I have used these principle work in my current job. I have only been at these for a few months now, and I often find myself sitting and observe my co-works doing their job. When watching my employees that I required to look over at work, I see writing things done to help me learn ways that I can help with there work. In the future, this principle indicates the most important of intentional surroundings with the people that I work with. I think if I spend more time practicing new ways that I can help my employees success at there job and move up in a company just like did.
Principle 4: You want to do your best and try not to judge and accomplish all your goals.
Stereotype threats can cause a person to have self-confirming fear that they are judged based on negative stereotype (Dweck, 2006)d. In both of them, the academic and professional setting the aware of the negative stereotypes can cause people to underperform. If individuals must expect to do poorly on there task they might not be able to perform as well as we like. When the stereotype threat can impact performance at a function. Learning about the effects of stereotype threat might provide individuals with an external attribution for their anxiety during a stereotype-relevant task (Dweck, 2016)d,
As the white female, I have not experienced the negative consequences of the stereotype that most experience. My sister, for instance, she firmly believes that most Christians are intellectual. Being able to understand the negative expectation of Christians can make you feel anxious. By reducing the stress, it should help improve the performance.
Principle 5: Having confidence is about abilities, and it is necessary to achieve related goals.
When people beliefs their capabilities to produce designated levels of there performance (Good, 2015)d. You could be loosely translated as having confidence in your abilities. When people beliefs their capabilities to produce designated levels of there performance (2016, p. 1.12)d. You could be loosely translated as having confidence in your abilities.
Sometimes in my own life, I have seen my effects both high and low self-efficacy. Do because of the low self-efficacy I do not take to slow down and not attempt my goals. It is imperative to have high self-efficacy because it is the abilities that you need to set the appropriate target and manage them. I have to be realistic about the time when it comes to my skills and long-term goals
Principle 6: When you surround yourself with family and friends it can help you accomplish your goals.
When getting support from others plays an essential role in the help of reducing stress and improving self-esteem. They having strong social support can make you more able to be able to cope with problems. Most of the time there are plenty of issues that you must overcome. It helps when you have lots of social support. Most of the time there are plenty of problems that you must defeat. It helps when you have lots of social support.
I have found that when I try to end up getting stressed invariably. I try to bounce the decision off of other people I trust makes it so much easier. When I get stressed, it makes for focus on my goals. One thing I do is take time out watch movies and relax.
