Just yesterday, I had an experience at my daughter’s pre-school tricycling event, an outdoor outing designed for two major reasons. Firstly, to get the kids out having fun while building their social interactions with one another. And secondly, an opportunity for the pre-school to fund-raise.
For me, it was a catch-up moment with parents and teachers given that we’re always on-the-go and in a hurry during drop-offs and pick-ups.
“Stop judging, comparing and measuring your kids against socio-cultural expectations.”
Relationship is a key driver in the pursuit of success and sometimes, success happen by drawing inspiration from others. If you want to be successful in life, you’ll have to hangout with people who share your kind of passion for success.
People who have succeeded in the area you want to succeed in. People who are focused, driven and heading somewhere meaningful. I guess you’re familiar with the saying, ‘Birds of a feather, flock together!’
In this life, your determination to succeed will definitely be challenged at every conceivable level. The minute you make a decision to stand for something meaningful that you believe in or perhaps a decision to make something happen for yourself or for a loved one, things are likely to go wrong.
Therefore, it is critically important to learn the power of persistence, without which you will fall short of where you could be. Walt Disney said and I quote, “All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them.”
If there’s anyone who has taught me amazing lessons about persistence, I tell you the truth, it’s my two-year-old daughter. She manifests and expresses this great quality like I’ve never seen before. So simple, yet powerful! When I tell her she can’t have her crayons and still have my pen, she’ll end up being so persistent that I’ll even join her in the colouring exercise.
Friends, the irony of life is that the moment you take a decision for action, things are likely to go wrong. And your determination to succeed in life will be challenged at every conceivable level. Therefore, it is critically important to learn the power of persistence; without it, you will fall short of where you ought to be in life! Walt Disney once said, “All our dreams can come true – if we have the courage to pursue them”.
