It is a real
to see our children succeed in life, isn't it? Now, you can
increase this pleasure.
You can help your child develop into more successful and confident
Here’s how you can do it. Follow these six smart ways:
1. Help your children develop high self-esteem
This is very important. Children who have low self-esteem, who have
less confidence in themselves, find it difficult to achieve success.
You can use one easy but highly effective method to increase your
children’s self-esteem—keep reminding them of their good qualities and
success. And the best way to do this is to “start treating your
children AS IF they are already genius.” You can do this naturally if
you remember everything they have achieved so far.
Celebrate their numerous achievements with BIG smile on your face :)
This simple technique helps to strengthen their self confidence. It
makes them believe they CAN achieve whatever they want.
2. Encourage your children to work toward useful goals
While talking with many children, and while conducting our workshops,
we have observed that those children who do not have
show less interest in studies. Hence they perform poorly and score low
Encouraging your children early to set career goals is the best way to
give direction to their thoughts and their life.
It is also an
effective method to stimulate your children to make proper use of
their time and energy. It is the best way to utilize their high
creative energy. Not only this, but setting goals will also
their mind from getting entangled with idle or destructive thoughts
Hence encourage your children to set some goals—like study goals or
career goals, and INFLUENCE them to do their best to achieve it. Allow
them the freedom to set the goals which they LOVE to achieve.
setting goals, make sure that you do not force YOUR interest on your
children. However, you can guide them to make right decisions, if they
seem confused or undecided.
When it is their “dream” children reach it with least effort. Once the
goal is chosen, parents’ job is just to provide them tools that make
journey of success enjoyable.
3. Allow your children to select their own dreams
Many children face problems because they end up choosing wrong
subjects for their higher studies, or they end up choosing wrong
career which does not suit them at all.
Your children can avoid many problems and failures if they choose
things which match with their interests and strengths.
This means, your children should choose study-subjects and career
based on their strengths, talents and interest. Never force your dream
on your children. If your choice matches with what they love,
For example, if your son likes music then it will be best for him to
choose career based on music. If your daughter is strong in math, it
would be a right decision to choose higher education and career based
Such choices based on children’s strength, interest,
and talent, help them to learn faster and make better progress.
Observe your children to find out in which work they are good at. What
things interest them. In which subjects they score higher
Also ask your children what are their aims, dreams and
interests. All this information will help your children to choose a
particular educational qualification or job or business that suits
them better. And they will be able to achieve success easily.
4. Teach your children methods of developing and using more
This is absolutely essential in today’s hectic pace of life, tough
competition and huge study material which children have to learn.
There are special mind control methods, like—self-programming,
visualization, positive-self suggestion, etc. These mind control
methods help children to be relaxed and use their mind
more efficiently. Hence it would be a good idea to learn these methods
yourself, and then teach them to your children. You will find all
these methods in Part-2 of Success Mindware: How To Program
Yourself To Succeed At Anything.
5. Help your children to be optimistic about their future
Everyday children see failures, unemployment, job retrenchments,
violence, and other depressing things around them—either through the
media or in the life of people they know.
These negative things can
de-motivate children. It can make them lose interest in studies,
career and life. It can make them think they don’t have much chance
for achieving success. Such thinking might even make them apprehensive
about their future.
You can prevent this. Mainly by teaching your children to convert
problems into solutions. To look for opportunities in difficulties.
Turn your children’s attention to those people who are achieving
success. While there are people living in depressing conditions, there
are also thousands of other people who are getting good jobs, amassing
wealth, fulfilling their dreams and living happily.
With this kind of
positive thinking, your children will not get discouraged. They will
remain reassured about their future and make efforts to realize their
6. Keep UP your children's energy level
Bad health can adversely affect children’s learning ability and
Help your children to stay healthy and energetic. Encourage them to
eat healthy and nutritious food, drink sufficient water, sleep
properly and exercise regularly. See that they are CHEERFUL most of
the time. This helps them to have their body and mind function at high
When their body and mind function at high energy level your children
will be able to study more, work more, and enjoy their life better.
Why not be a role model to your children right from “NOW?” By applying
these healthy ways in your own life—as children are influenced more by
parents’ actions and less by lecture!
