I love hanging out with my kids because they are always teaching me lessons and allowing me to see the results of my reactions. When my eldest daughter was 4 she was always pushing the limits and has been doing so since she was two years old. It’s her job.
When I was pregnant with my second daughter I had to go shopping for a pair of open back shoes as my feet were swelling and I could not fit into anything. I brought my eldest daughter with me who was 2 ½ years old at the time. She found these shoe horns and space pads under the seat I was sitting on. She pulled some out and was playing with them when she then looked at me and said “Mommy can I have these?”. I automatically said “no they belong to the store and they are not for us to take”. She looked right at me and said I can ask. I was just about to say no again and something reminded me about a training I took a while back that in life...
This is a great article that describes the power of having a vision in the simplest of terms, and points out that the most successful people on the plant had a vision. The pitfalls in life are just a part of the process, especially when you have a strong vision that keeps you motivated and moving forward.
Like many of the people listed in this article, they were all discourage from doing what they envisioned was possible and are the best in their industry today.
It is a short but powerful read. Enjoy.
To Your Success,
