Success Builds Skills
Being a great student doesn’t necessarily translate to being a successful adult. So, you’re not off the hook just because your child is doing well in school.
School is not teaching the essential success skills for children in life.
As a parent, you are your child’s first teacher. You can make up for this oversight and still prepare your child for a successful and fulfilling life.
Teach the following success skills to help your child to be successful in life.
Even a child can set goals. A child’s intentions might be to get an A on a test, earn a spot on the basketball team, or finish reading a long book.
Learning to set an objective and develop a plan to achieve it are valuable skills for anyone of any age.
WORK DAILY TOWARD A PURPOSE
Having a goal and a plan is the natural part. Executing that plan is considerably more challenging.
Help your child to put in the time each day to achieve something worthwhile. It might be studying for a big test, exercising each day, financial responsibility, or learning how to draw animals, reading a book, memorize a bible verse, or even skills for success.

How Can You Protect Yourself From Online Predators
Protecting Your Child From Predators
by BETH ROBINSON, EdD and LATAYNE C. SCOTT, PhD
No one teaches us how to focus. Most of us spend our lives distracting ourselves, which is the opposite of focus. Meditation is one tool for teaching focus, but there are many other options, such as:
Set a timer and encourage your child to focus on their homework for 10 minutes straight.
Avoid allowing your child to read a book or play on their tablet while watching TV. Teach them to only engage in one activity at a time.
CARE LITTLE WHAT OTHERS THINK
Mastering the opinions of others is a tough one to learn at any age, but it’s especially challenging for children. It’s hard to be successful if you’re worried about the opinions of others. Set a good example and show your child what it means to be brave.
Taking actions in pursuit of your goals and accepting the possibility of failing is correlated with success. Successful people fail much more frequently than the average person.
The more often you’re willing to fail, the more success you’ll find. Teach this lesson to your children. Again, set a good example.
DEAL WITH FAILURE
Once the failure has occurred, it’s essential to make the most of it. Teach your child that failure is a learning opportunity that makes them more reliable and more capable.
A profound predictor of health and wealth that can be determined by three years of age. And that predictor is language. Language is the essence of what it means to be human. Now, animals may have noises or gestures that they can communicate with, I can assure you my cat can get me up out of bed at five o’clock in the morning because he is hungry, but human beings are much more adept and much more facile at language.
DEAL WITH UNCOMFORTABLE FEELINGS
Fear is the most significant blocker to success. The inability to deal with negative feelings, in general, leads to bad habits, such as drinking, using drugs, overeating, and wasting time on stimulating activities with little value. Help your child to deal with uncomfortable feelings positively.
The ability to manage negative feelings effectively makes relationships more challenging, too.
It’s not easy to be happy and prosperous on your own. Relationships are an essential part of life. Many children struggle to make friends and fit in, leading to possible challenges in childhood and later in life.
Use your time wisely, and you can accomplish anything. Teach your child how to plan part of his day and how to use that time wisely. Procrastination is a success killer.
You can’t be successful if you don’t take care of yourself adequately. Your child needs to know that he has a right and a responsibility to make his own needs a priority if he’s going to be successful.
However, if you look at successful people, most of them don’t operate by placing others ahead of themselves.
Your child shouldn’t have to figure out everything on their own. They have you to teach them the ropes.
Success is a skill that anyone can learn.
Teach your child to be successful. You’ll learn more about success in the process and enjoy a higher level of success yourself. Share on Facebook Facebook Share on Twitter Twitter Share on Pinterest Pinterest
