CM206 Unit 2 Journal Entry
Q1.Define one change you would like to make to your self-perception (how you think about yourself). It might be a behavior or a self-fulfilling prophecy or anything about yourself you would like to alter.
A1. Well there a couple of things I would like to change about myself. But one in particular would be to stop downing myself. Every now and then I tend to be really hard on myself and will look in the mirror and call myself ugly or stupid. I know none of this is true but some days that’s just how I feel.

I would also like ...view middle of the document...

I also wrote “I will let my husband take the lead role” “I will listen to give more and give him a change”.

Q3.Refine your general goal by making sure it is realistic and fair. Write out your refined goal using specific language from the text: “I want to show my two best friends that I am paying attention when they talk to me,” or “I want to make one comment in each meeting of one class this week,” for example and format in APA.
A3.”I want to show myself that I am a unique smart beautiful person. I want to show my husband that I am listening and I will allow him to take the lead.”

4.Place the card or paper where you will see it often. Each time you see it, repeat the message out loud to yourself. This should help sustain your commitment to making the change.
5.Observe others who are models for what you want to be. Write down what they do. Use specific language to describe how they communicate: “Tracy nods a lot and repeats back what others say so they know she is listening,” or “James provides examples of concepts in class so that the ideas are more concrete,” for example.
A5. Delonte gives eye contact when listing to his wife he engages in the conversation. Janae looks in the mirror and adores herself , she smiles and gives herself compliment.s
6.Select contexts that assist you in reaching your goal: “I will talk with my friends in private settings where there are no distractions that interfere with listening well,” or “I will begin speaking up in my Communication course because it is the most discussion-oriented and because other students make a lot of comments there. Later, I will speak up in my sociology course, which combines lecture and discussion.”
