Unit One: Decisions and their Outcomes

         Every decision leads to a consequence. Often times, it is these decisions that influence whether or not a person is successful in achieving his or her goals. Everyone will undoubtedly face challenges and/or “handicaps” that may or may not hinder successes.  At the end of the day, it is about rising to meet the challenge, making morally sound decisions, and inevitably conquering goals.

    1) What is the relationship between decisions and consequences?
    2) What factors influence whether you are successful or unsuccessful in achieving your goals?
    3) How is it true that everyone is flawed?
