Unlocking your child’s resilience and mind set to thrive in the challenging World of education and work begins with…
We are continually fed through media channels about the importance of installing confidence, resilience and mental wellbeing in our children as the necessary paving stones toward building a fulfilled adult life. It can be frustrating and stressful however for any parent observing the unprecedented change in the World, knowing that their child is at the vulnerable centre of this shift.
Of course parents don’t want to transfer all their anxiety onto their children and simply long for an uplifting, practical and sustainable solution that would provide a road map to support their child.
The one human quality, guaranteed to ignite any child’s resilience for the challenges ahead is INSPIRATION!
Inspiration comes from the Latin “to be infused with spirit” and being spiritual in nature it’s the perfect human quality that can weather any storm.
Resilience is a skill rather than a personality trait. Spending time with a highly inspiring mentor provides children with the opportunity to observe and exercise the mental attributes of confidence, humility, authenticity and self-belief.
“Tell me, I’ll forget. Show me, I’ll remember, involve me, I’ll understand.”- Chinese Proverb
The World is going to require great problem solvers to tackle environmental and societal challenges so it’s vital our children are encouraged to exercise imagination, initiative, adaptability, open mindedness and creativity. To be inspired fosters these entrepreneurial qualities and allows young people to explore exactly what skills and qualities constitute great leadership. It’s important to note that the best leaders are those that inspire and care for the development and wellbeing of their colleagues.
Inspirational people naturally develop the skills to learn how to learn, and this is becoming increasingly important for organisational agility.
It’s also important to share with our young people that fulfilment comes through developing what they already have…the spirit of life!
Isn’t inspiration about reaching higher?
Absolutely, but our young people need to understand their bright light within is all that’s needed to illuminate their unique life journey rather than continually wishing to be someone else or looking elsewhere for instant gratification.
Or to put it another way, growth is about developing what’s already in front of you.
Exposure to Inspiration allows children to conquer fear and mine their own limitless vein of gold!
