“GREAT PEOPLE HAVE GREAT VALUES AND GREAT ETHICS.” – JEFFREY GITOMER –

 

ETHICS ARE THE MORAL PRINCIPLES FOR WHY WE ACT THE WAY WE DO.

Our ETHICS influence the way we act and the decisions we make. It is dealing with what is right and wrong and acting in a MORAL way. In our class, it is important to have strong ethical beliefs and act on them. For example, we may have a tough decision to make, and we should use our ethics to decide what is best, even if it is not what is best for us personally. Using our ethics will always leave us feeling good about our actions because we know we did the right thing.

 

Ask Your Students:

1. What ethical decision have you had to make lately?

2.Why is it so important to be ethical?

3. Where do your ethics come from?

4. How often do you think about ethics

“WORK HARD; BE ETHICAL.”– ERIKA CHRISTENSEN –

WORKING HARD AND BEING ETHICAL GO HAND-IN-HAND.

 

Part of being ethical is always TRYING YOUR HARDEST and giving your all. You should do this at home, school and in your martial arts class. When hard work is part of your ethical standard, you always give 100% and expect those around you to do the same. Being ethical and working hard will set you up for SUCCESS. For example in our class, if we always do the right thing and always give our all, we will continue to get better.

 

Ask Your Students:

1. How does working hard fit into your ethics?

2. Why is working hard an ethical decision?

3. Do you think it’s important to work hard?

4. Do you always give your best effort

“ETHICAL IS ‘I’LL WAIT AND DO WHAT’S RIGHT EVEN IN THE HARDEST TIMES AND EVEN IF I HAVE TO GIVE UP GAINS TO DO IT.’ ”– OHN J. MACK –

SOMETIMES MAKING THE ETHICAL DECISION IS HARD TO DO.

 

Being ethical isn’t always easy. Sometimes it means making a tough decision knowing the outcome won’t work in our favor. In those times, it could be very easy to make a decision that will benefit us even if we know it is wrong. But our high ethical standards will keep us from doing that. We need to make the right decision even if it means we will not gain as much personally.

 

 Ask Your Students:

 

1. Have you ever had to make a decision where you knew doing the right thing meant you wouldn’t benefit as much?

2. Why is it important to make an ethical decision even when we don’t want to?

3. How do ethics play into your decision making?

4. What are some examples of times being ethical has been difficult for you?

 

“A MAN WITHOUT ETHICS IS A WILD BEAST LOOSED UPON THIS WORLD.”– ALBERT CAMUS –

 

 YOUR ACTIONS DO NOT JUST AFFECT YOU.

 When you act unethically, it affects everybody around you. All of your actions have a reaction, and when you make a bad decision, it can hurt many people. For example, if you choose not to do your part on a project, the rest of your group members will be forced to do extra work or risk the project not being done. In our class, if you choose to mess around instead of listening and learning, the rest of the class will be distracted and not learn as much as they could.

 

Ask Your Students:

1. Have you ever made a decision that negatively affected others?

2. Why is it so important to think about how your actions will affect others?

3. Have you ever had somebody make a decision that hurt you?

4. How do your actions have an impact on people around you?
