Overview

Reaching Your Potential, Concise Edition, is designed for short courses or for those instructors who prefer a shorter text. Similar to the previous edition, this revised text uses a holistic approach to personal development. Readers are actively involved in improving their intellectual, emotional, physical, and social potential with specific learning experiences. Based on the concept that self-belief is the foundation for success, the text offers interesting pedagogic features to help readers develop a positive understanding of their strengths. The "Whatever It Takes" features profile individuals who have overcome difficulties and achieved success in their lives, providing motivational stories that students can relate to. A new feature, "For You to Consider", presents the reader with high-interest topics related to chapter content and directs them to the internet to do additional research. The text has been updated to include a new approach to problem solving; new material on the USDA Dietary Guidelines and Food Guide Pyramid; new sections on cell phone do's and don'ts and the norms of classroom behavior; and new material on coping with stress. Updated information on preparing resumes and career portfolios and using email to send cover letters and resumes makes this text an invaluable resource for students.
