Review: The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens

If you're a teen, then you're likely dealing with some type of challenge causing you to feel overwhelmed and sensitive around your family/friends. With school, hours of homework, activities, jobs, ect, it can seem as though you have no control over your life. It can be hard to juggle responsibility and still make time for you.

You may feel that you're riding an emotional rollercoaster - one that causes you to get into fights with your parents and siblings, and maybe even lose focus on the really important things (family time, grades, ect).

You want to make the right choices, but it can be hard sometimes when you're under pressure or feeling overwhelmed with responsibility.

Growing up, I've loved listening to motivational audiobooks and reading books on making money, being a leader, ect. One of my favorites of all time has been Sean Covey's The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens.

Sean Covey takes his experiences and the experiences of other teens and incorporates them into a wonderful book that helps motivate kids to make the right choices and still enjoy the time they have to really be kids. He offers great principles and advice to help teens face tough issues and life-changing decisions that many find themselves dealing with everyday.

If you like Chicken Soup For The Teenage Soul, then you will love The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens. Covey shares incredible stories about real teens that have dealt with issues you have - or will - face.

The principles and ideas shared in this (audio)book are those that can be used throughout your entire life. Through humor, amazing stories, advice, and life-lessons, this book will definitely help you change your life.

I loved this book and I recommend it to all teens, even if you don't feel you're struggling through your high-school years. You will learn about achieving your goals and making the most of the few years you have left as a kid (the most important years of your young-adult life!). This is truly the ultimate teenage success guide and I really hope you drop by your local library to pick it up!
