I have always considered myself to be a good Father to my children. Today I learned another aspect of being a Father/Dad that I had been struggling with for quite a few years. I always thought that I struggled with the art of communication, but I learned differently today. My struggle has been the art of motivation or better yet guiding my children to achieve their vision or purpose for their life. I now have an understanding why there are so many struggling men and children in the world. If you are living your life without a definite and clear purpose. You are just living a life filled with constant struggles and lack of enthusiasm for life. As i sit here and think about my past, nothing that I was doing then has anything to do with my purpose for living.
Now my immediate task is to implement a plan first to change my own habits, and then seek to work with helping my children refocus on a vision or purpose for their lives. Then help them put together a plan that will help them succeed. Everyone has been brought into this world with a divine purpose. Goals are not a purpose! Goals are what guides us to our purpose for living.
I enjoy being ME! I want to be the best ME that I can be each and everyday for the rest of MY life!
On September 30th I decided to fully commit to a Paradigm Shift for my life. So you ask what is a Paradigm? It is a multitude of habits. I had habits that lead my life to just a mere existence, and I was not happy. My life was based on the masses of my community, state, and our country.
So far my morning routine has changed, and that reflects how my day will evolve. I have read 3 books and a couple several times. I have begun to create a winning attitude for prosperity and success, spiritual, mental, and physical. I no longer focus on where I am. I am where I am! I now focus on what I want and where I want my life to go!
Yesterday I wrote my first childrens book. The words just flowed with such ease. My wife said she has read it 3 times, and encourages me to write another. When one seriously commits to making a Paradigm Shift wonderful things begin to happen. My marriage has even taken on a new life!
My mentor Bob Proctor made a statement! God’s gift to us is more talent and ability that we will ever use in our lifetime! Our gift to God is to develop as much of that talent and ability as we can in this lifetime!
Take any group of 100 people at the start of their working career and follow them for 40 years until they reach retirement age and here’s what you’ll find, according to the Social Security Administration:
- Only 1 will be wealthy
- 4 will be financially secure
- 5 will continue working, not because they want to but because they have to
- 36 will be dead
- 54 will be dead broke – dependent on the meager Social Security checks, relatives, friends and even charity for a minimum standard of living.
That’s 5% successful, 95% unsuccessful.
All of my life I always wondered how my life would it up at the age of retirement. Picking up cans to survive. Waiting for the SS check in the mail. Now I have an idea of what could have happened!
There is a way to make solid changes and a new direction. I started making those changes a few weeks ago, I feel great! Bring it on!
I just read a comment on Facebook from a dear friend, about a comment that their child made to both her and her husband. The comment was that the child said that he hated his parents and wished they were dead, and he is only 7. Regardless how this came to be, I don’t feel that statement should ever be made to a mother. Considering that child was carried for months through pain and suffering of mind, body, and soul by its mother. One might say it is deserved or brought it on themselves, or any other excuse. The fact remains this should never come out of a childs mouth to their parents!
That is not healthy behavior, and could possibly lead to other acts of defiance to both parents and to others of society. Children are bringing harm to their parents everyday, and have been for years. I have never had my children make comments to my face such as that, and I don’t entertain any attitudes that would lead up to those situations.
I guess I am from the old school. You just did not make comments relating to that in any way shape or form without suffering the consequences of that action.
My son use to slap my wife when he was still a toddler and I told her not to let him do that. Her comment was if you hit. Then he would learn to hit also. Well he hit me when she was not around. Before he knew what happened, I gave him three quick pops on his legs and he never hit anyone else again. I feel a child can be chastised without being physical at times, but there are times when shock treatment is necessary. I wonder how many imprisonments could have been avoided by currect discipline. Notice I said CORRECT discipline. The dicipline has to properly fit the actions of the child.
I repeat my original statement. No child is justified in vocally expressing their hate to their mother!
