Here's how the camp experience has motivated participants

“The habits are going to improve my relationship with myself. Before I came to this camp, I beat myself up a lot and I was really down on myself.”

“I was bad at prioritizing before this camp, and I've learned a lot I plan to incorporate in my life.”

“I want to incorporate first things first into my life because I know that my family, my school work, and my personal progress are important, but sometimes I don't treat them that way.”

“I want to use the habits to improve my relationship with my little brother. We don't get along very well, but I've been inspired by the stories of change that I've heard from my group members.”

“I have learned to be positive and proactive and have used this all week. Whenever I think something mean, now I stop myself.”

“I am going to work on doing first things first since I love planning and getting stuff done. But as much as I hate to admit it, I usually save the most important things for last, which leads to procrastination and bad grades.”

“The 2nd habit (begin with the end in mind) is the one I'm most excited to live because it made me realize that I never really saw the end goal before.”

“I'm going to focus on improving my relationship with ALL my family—parents, uncles, cousins, grandparents, siblings, etc. I have a long way to go, but because of the 7 Habits, I know which route I'm going to take.”

“I'm going to incorporate first things first into my life because I need a better short term way of setting and keeping goals. Time to change five plus hours of computer games every day.”

“These habits are going to improve my relationship with my parents. Ultimately they are my most important relationship right now. My parents have achieved and they want me to achieve too.”
