Good morning, I hope the holidays are treating you well and you enjoy the company of friends and family.
This post is about working with our children from a young age to train them for success. As I mentioned in my book Road map to life it took me over 12 years after I had graduated from the University to learn the principles of success the hard way. Imagine the impact you can make in your children's life by starting them early in life. That was the focus behind the reason I wrote the e-book to begin with. I wanted to give the high school and beyond students a taste of what they could learn from my mistakes and set them on a path to success as I wished some one had taught those skills to me.
The easiest way to teach children is to make is playful. Games are great in teaching your kids to set goals. If they are of writing age you can work with them on writing and focusing on exactly what they like to have. This not only strengthens their writing skill but it forces their mind on being specific. The greatest tool to teaching your kids, however, remains YOUR actions.
When your children see you creating, and reading out loud your goals and making visions boards they will naturally imitate you. For the longest time now when I wake up in the morning, I go through a routine of thanking God for as many things I can think of. I also state "my intention for today is to be happy" and "my vibration is high". The I go through little mantras I have picked up from various books, like "every day in every way I am better and better", or "I am whole, perfect, strong, powerful, loving, harmonious, and happy".
The other day my 3 years old daughter was repeating the last two statements. Frequently she also asks me "baba, what is your intention today?" or "how is your vibration today?".
That always brings a smile to my face, and I enthusiastically answer her "to feel happy, and my vibration is high and great".  I also know that repeatedly saying she feels better and better and other affirmations will quickly pass to her subconscious at this age. Because unlike adults she does not doubt anything I say at this point in her life. I can positively influence her mind at this tender age much like Napoleon Hill did with his son who was born without ears.
If you don't have children you can use these concepts with any of the children in your family or volunteer to teach kids these concepts. I promise you the change you can make in just one child will bring you joy and satisfaction well worth the effort.
Plus I find it is much easier to teach kids than to try to change adults from their way of set thinking.
Wishing you a great week.
