Educate To Become Great
Let’s face it, as parents today we have access to so much information, that we often end up confused or concerned. Am I doing enough? Am I doing it right? What else should I be doing? These are just some of the common questions we all find ourselves asking at some point. Luckily, you are not the only one that goes through this. The downside is that with so many people asking these questions, there are so many answers. So how do figure out which is the right one?
This is obviously a difficult question to answer. The truth is that the correct answer, is the one that is best for you. I know that you now have the follow up question, “OK and that is?” Not to worry, you have everything you need to figure that answer out on your own. All you need to know is what to look for.
You and Your Child Have It In You
Everything you need is within you already. Let me explain. The word education is derived from the Latin word “educo,” meaning to educe, to draw out, to develop from within or that which lies within. Think about that for a second. What education really was meant to be was to learn and understand the knowledge on how to use the power inside you! While most of us associate education with classrooms, textbooks, and other mediums to learn, there is another source to draw from. The generally accepted definition of education is still extremely important, but that from within is as equally important.
What Is The It
The IT that is within your child, is whatever your child desires IT to be. Since the child is already equipped with all the hardware, it is simply a matter of providing them with the software they need to do or be anything they desire.
Let me explain. The brain has all the ability to learn and grow into whatever you or your child desire. In fact, it is no different than your bicep muscle, in that the more you exercise it, the thicker and stronger it becomes. With this basic knowledge, it becomes evident that your child, with practice and patience, is capable of infinite possibilities. In fact, the only limitations are those that we place on ourselves.
What Do We Need To Program
We have established that the brain is the hardware, so naturally it follows that the software that needs to be installed in the brain utilizes its powers. Everyone, including your child, possess inherent cognitive or perceptual powers. These include imagination, intuition, will, perception, memory, and reason. These powers allow us to process all that is in the physical world around us, and then decide on how to proceed within that world. Therefore, it is important that tools and skills you help your child develop utilize these cognitive powers.
What Is The Program
The good news is that there is no specific program. Instead, there are specific skills, tools, or mindsets that help develop all of these cognitive abilities. When nourished with these skills, your child ends up programmed for their own success.
Learning how to incorporate mindfulness, a growth mindset, a positive attitude, and more will help your child become more confident, resilient, independent, and ultimately happy. The tools and skills empower your child to believe that they are capable of anything. Once they believe, they are programmed to succeed. All you have to do is provide the encouragement and support. You can do this by creating a positive environment for your child, and promoting a growth mindset.
Education doesn’t just happen at school, it also happens from within. The more, your child is allowed to discover and love the power that lies within, the more they will be able to draw from it. As these beliefs are put into action, the greatness within your child will begin to shine. You can then feel at peace knowing that you are doing enough, but so is your child!
