Bullying in the Schools Will End When the Adults Stop Bullying Each Other.

To Be WUCA! is to Welcome, by having a great attitude; Understand, by listening and being open to other’s ideas; being Comfortable in knowing your own passion, purpose, vision, and goals; and Appreciating by expressing gratitude. It is a simple idea. Maybe too simple, because this is not what I see people living.

This is why I am more than a little perplexed at blaming youth for bullying.

Yes, they do need to take responsibility for their actions and yes, we do have a problem with bullying.

But are we focusing on the root cause?

Look around!

All I have to do is look in my email inbox or on my Facebook page to see each political party calling people in the other party names, or women telling men and men telling women that each other’s opinion does not matter, signs and sayings that people post inferring that when people think a certain way, they are somehow un-American or un-Christian, or that if you are not born in this country you are not paying taxes and using all of our services for free.

Have you been watching the presidential campaigns? It is no wonder that we have kids that bully.

We have grown men, who want to be President of this nation and represent all of us, calling each other “liar” and pointing fingers telling them that what they think and what they do is wrong. Politicians shout on television and radio waves saying others are “stupid” for stopping “this idea” from going forward.

And people send money to support this type of behavior.

When adults in communities gossip in coffee shops or in beauty parlors about how so-and-so got to the top by lying and cheating, are they simply jealous of someone’s success? The message is they want to see other people fail.

Or radio talk show hosts and writers hiding behind "free speech" call others derogatory names.

What kind of modeling are we doing as adults? Do we say, “If your values are not like mine, you are wrong?”

Back to students.

Our schools are reflections of our communities: test scores, people on free and reduced lunch, bullying, lack of motivation, and lack of respect for teachers are examples of community life.

Kids are blamed on how big a problem bullying is in schools with when all you may have to do is look within the families and the community.

What is the matter with kids today? Look to the adults that model behavior.

What is the answer to bullying?

Drive your CAR The WUCA! Way

Have you ever walked to your car and started it, expecting it to take you to your destination all by itself? Of course not. You need to drive it. You need to know beforehand where you are going.

What does this mean for your life? Your business? Your family? Your workplace?

Ladies and Gentlemen! Start Your Engines!

Let me introduce you to the new and improved model of "The WUCA! Car."

WUCA CAR

WUCA CAR

Stylish and sleek with integrity built in. Fully responsive to your actions. With bumper to bumper elegance that will passionately get you to your destination successfully with purpose.

When you drive your Be WUCA! CAR, the first thing you do is to think about the Result you want. Your destination. Where you want to end up. This step is nearly always within your power to determine. Many things you can think about ahead of time, so you have an automatic response - like your attitude getting out of bed in the morning. What kind of day do you want? Think ahead on this.

Identify your Circumstance. In whatever circumstance you are experiencing in life, what is happening to you? What are you thinking about related to a circumstance? Do you want to change anything about it? This has less certainty to it, as circumstances can change and are often beyond our control. But you often can still think ahead what may come your way.

What is completely within your control, however, is how you Act. Depending on what you've identified as your end result, you act on your circumstance to get the result you desire. You drive your CAR.

C = Circumstance

A= Action

R = Result

Just as if taking a trip, you map out the route that will get you where you want to end up in the amount of time you are planning.

Once you map out your route, you make sure that you have your car serviced. Do you have gas and oil? Are the fluid levels where they need to be? How is the tire pressure? All of these things should be checked before you start on your way.

In your life, is your mind serviced with the passion and training you need? Are the results you want within your purpose? If they are, then you are ready to drive your Be WUCA! CAR.

Just mapping out your trip and visualizing where you want to go does not get you there. You have to put your CAR into drive, step on the gas, and steer the CAR down the right road.

Will you run into road closures or road under construction sometimes?

Yes!

But when you do, there is always a way around it called a detour. (When one door closes, another one opens.)

Will your car need additional service; put gas in it?

Yes!

You will always need to stop for gas - additional training and get your rest.

Align your CAR and balance your tires - spend time with family, play, and develop friends.

And make time for tune-ups, like read books and articles, to make you a better person. Take additional training to help you reach your destination. Work with a Life Coach. Create a Mastermind group that will keep you on the road to success.

When you keep your foot on the gas and your Be WUCA! CAR is moving forward, you will reach your desired destination. You just have to:

Identify your Circumstances.

Act to map out your routes.

Choose where you will drive to get the Result you want to achieve success.

It is all up to you. You get to choose where you want to end up and what attitude you want while you are driving in your new WUCA! CAR.

BEEP!! BEEP!!!
