Our Daily Intentions:
Developing a perspective and a different outlook during overwhelming circumstances is one of the biggest gifts we can give to our children as parents.
We can start the day by using the inquiry method to rev up their brains to start thinking critically. Ask your children every morning, “What do you hope to aim for today? What new things do you plan to learn and try today?”
Charles F. Kettering quoted once, “High achievement always takes place in the framework of high expectation.” And when we ask questions about their intent for the day and week, we’re setting our children up to believe in their capacity to do great things.
Personal Growth Factor:
Irrespective of how hard we work, how positive we try to be with what life throws at us, one thing is certain. Some things will always be out of our control. And, most things often don’t work out the way we want them to.
But, we can keep our sights on what matters to us. We can believe in our ability to survive, and our will to emerge out of the circumstances, stronger and better.
An Abundance Of Teaching Moments:
At the end of every evening, follow up with your children by sharing what you’ve learnt and what you’ve failed at that day. It can be any problem, at work or life, that you’re trying to find a solution to. Ask them, “What has been your personal growth factor like today?”
Every moment of our lives is a learning moment if we choose to look at our experiences in that light. Our daily life, especially as parents, teaches us to stay humble, that we don’t always have the answers and that we can best teach our children through our behavior than words.
But, we can lead by example to those who’re looking upto for answers during a crisis. We can keep calm, upskill and reskill ourselves for unleashing a new version of ourselves once we’re over our tough times. So, parents, here’s a challenge for you. Are you ready to die without doing EPIC sh*t?
