Introduction to Student Leadership: Student Leadership Playbook 2. COMMIT

Jun 18, 2020

COMMIT to becoming a leader. When I first joined all the clubs I was not a natural leader. I was not even a natural member of the groups, organizations, and teams. Just like mentioned before I began to join many clubs, organizations, groups, and teams. I joined the chess club and began to play chess every Wednesday after school. I competed in UIL which are academic competitions. I joined the football team which I had wanted to do since I was very young. I joined the basketball team. I joined...

Introduction to Student Leadership: Student Leadership Playbook 1. Choose

Jun 18, 2020
CHOOSE to attend, join, and be a part of the club, organization, team, etc. The first step is always the hardest. Student Leadership is a choice. I can remember starting middle school and seeing signs/flyers on the walls. Come to this meeting. Join our club. Be a part of our organization. 
I would look at those signs in the hallways and think to myself I want to attend the meeting. I would be handed a flyer and asked to join the club but the voice in my head  would start to tell me...

Engage Leadership: Student Success & Student Leadership Series 8

May 30, 2020

Jonathan Medina- "Where your engagement goes, your success follows."

Have you ever noticed that whatever activities you invest or spend the most time in your success goes? As a Student Leader you often have to make a decision on what activities and what organizations you can be truly engaged in. If you are engaged in one organization more than the other you will experience more success. 

There is an old parable of 2 wolves. Usually the story is told with one wolf representing Anger and...

May 23, 2020

Jonathan Medina "Student Leaders Measure Success and Cleary see success" 

Muhammad Ali "The Greatest" - "I don't count my sit-ups. I only start counting when it starts hurting because they're the only ones that count. That's what makes you a champion."

I love that quote from Muhammad Ali because so many of the things in student leadership are going to hurt. You will have to sacrifice personal goals. You will have to put in lots of hours. You will have to gain new skills. You will...

Invest in your Leadership: Student Success & Student Leadership Series 6

Mar 29, 2020

Jonathan Medina - "There is always a way to Win! Invest in yourself to find the way to Victory. Invest in your Leadership!"

Investing vs Spending

Investing is to put something in to get something even better out later. Spending is to use up without getting something better. If I give you $20 and you give me back $30 that was a good investment of the $20. If I give you $20 and you give me back $10 that was a bad investment. That works so many other things besides money. When we put money...

Embody Leadership Everyday: Student Success & Student Leadership Series 4

Feb 05, 2020

Jonathan Medina "As a leader you should BE, DO, and THINK. As a Leader you must EMBODY Leadership" 

I love the level of importance Tom Brady puts on Embodying being a leader. 

Tom Brady "When you're one of the leaders of the team, there are no days off."

He says you must BE every single day. As a student leader you must realize that you have great influence. Those that are looking up to you are watching you. Some want to be just like you. Sometimes that can feel like a lot of...
