Image via WikipediaHow do you close the door to fear? Fear is usually the single thing that keeps one from achieving their intended goals or of being successful. Failure is the only door into success and fear is the element that stops any activity whatsoever toward the failure. I know considering failure as success is an unfamiliar concept, but it is the only way. If you never fail then you cannot possible succeed. You must fail at some things in life, to learn the lessons that we were intended to learn, in our time on this planet. My Higher Power of choice is God. So I will refer to him through this post. God intended us to make mistakes and learn from them.
When a child is put on this earth, he/she arrives without sin. If we never did anything except keep he/she safe, then who would that child become? What would that child learn? The child would be his or her own self. Right himself/herself. It is only after being subjected to the views and choices of the parent that the child becomes the combination of both or the culmination of one. Whatever environmental elements affect the child will be part of the process, but the child will choose. Again, an overwhelming concept, I know. But, if we never influenced the child, wouldn’t he/she just follow by example? Yes, so to raise our children, the one crucially important factor is to teach them by example. So be an example of a child you would want to live in the world. Does this sound like something you’ve heard before? Of course it is, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you?” Hello…why are we not using that same philosophy to raise our children. And I do not mean by cramming bible verses down their throat. I mean by being the person that you want your child to be. There is no “what’s good for the goose” allowance here.
BE WHO YOU WANT YOUR CHILD TO BE, ACT THE WAY YOU WANT THE WORLDTO ACT AND YOUR CHILD WILL FOLLOW BY EXAMPLE. IT IS THAT SIMPLE…BE A LEADER TO YOUR CHILDREN, NOT A FOLLOWER OF THE MASSES.
