Parents: 6 Ways to Be Extraordinary

Image
Allow your kids to be with you
Take the time to let your children hang out with you. This is where they learn how to interact with others and see you in action. The best way to teach a child is by being an example to them.
Always tell your children to do the best they can  This gives them a goal to work towards. Allow their best to be good enough.
Congratulate them when they do!! Praise the act of trying more than their accomplishments  Sometimes just trying, even if they fail, teaches 
a greater lesson than actually succeeding.
Follow through on your promises
Most of all HAVE FUN!!!!


Measuring Success

How is success measured? 
What does it mean to you?
Are you only successful when other people think you are?               
What defines success?
There is no defining answer on what success truly is. Most people I've come into contact with view success as only attainable when you reach a certain age or status in life.
But everyone defines success differently and there is nothing wrong with that. What is wrong, is when people try to push what they think success means onto someone else and say that that other person is not successful. Now let’s take a mother for example, it doesn’t matter how many kids you have, if you have one or ten, you are still a mother.  But in the world we live in I have heard people say “She’s not going to be successful in life”, “She’s going to have to take care of her kids for the rest of her life” or “She’ll be too busy to accomplish anything”. Now these statements just make me want to punch someone in the face. How did you get so ignorant to not see the great…

"It's time to STOP running"

At different points in our lives we start to realize that we are not being who we are or who we can become. We start losing focus on the things that should be more important to us. We start planning our future, but forget the real reason or what we are planning for. We start to focus on worldly obsession or monetary items that ultimately have no value in the big scheme of things. With all this stuff in our way we start running from who we are and the responsibilities that we have, because we think we are too busy to fulfill them. But in all reality most of the things we do are busy work, to make us think we are busy, but we really are not accomplishing anything. So I say "It's time to STOP running" and time to start using our time and talents to better the world in which we live. 
If you don't like the world you live in "CHANGE IT" stop running!!!
