What motivates children to succeed?
1. You won’t remember it in a year
This is a lesson that I learned the hard way. I used to get so worked up over the little things, but then I realized that most of the stuff that I worried about didn’t matter in the long run. So now, I try to remind myself that “this too shall pass.”
2. It’s okay to ask for help
I’m a fixer by nature, so I used to think that I had to handle everything on my own. But I’ve learned that it’s okay to ask for help when I need it. In fact, it’s often the best thing to do.
3. Don’t sweat the small stuff
This is another one that I learned the hard way. I used to get so stressed out over the little things, but then I realized that most of them didn’t matter in the grand scheme of things. So now, I try to focus on the big picture and not sweat the small stuff.
4. It’s okay to make mistakes
Everyone makes mistakes. It’s part of life. So don’t beat yourself up when you make one. Just learn from it and move on.
5. Be kind to yourself
This is one that I’m still working on. I can be really hard on myself sometimes. But I’m learning that it’s important to be kind to myself, just like I would be kind to someone else.
6.Follow your dreams
It’s easy to get caught up in the day-to-day grind and forget about your dreams. But it’s important to remember what you want out of life and to keep working towards it.
7. Be true to yourself
Don’t try to be someone you’re not. The people who love you will love you for who you are.
8. Don’t be afraid to take risks
Life is too short to play it safe all the time. Sometimes you have to take risks in order to achieve your goals.
9. Learn to forgive
Holding on to anger and resentment will only hurt you in the long run. So learn to forgive, both yourself and others.
10. Live in the present moment
It’s easy to get caught up in the past or the future, but it’s important to remember to live in the present moment. This is where life happens.
These are just a few of the life lessons that I wish I had taught my kids sooner. But it’s never too late to start. So if you’re a parent, I encourage you to share these lessons with your kids. They may not always listen, but they’ll hear you. And one day, they’ll be grateful for the wisdom that you shared.
