• How to Raise Successful Kids

    Everybody wants to raise a successful kid, but what does that really mean? What does it really mean to raise successful kids? What are the success principles needed to get kids to where you are or where you want to be?

    The answer is not all that simple. Different people have different definitions of success. Maybe your definition of success is money, power, or lots of friends/influence. Maybe having high self-esteem and healthy and successful relationships are your top goals for success.  If you want to truly transform yourself for success, and thus raise a household of tiny successful people, you must decide what you want for your own life, and help your kids visualize what they want in their lives. Reject rejection and begin with the timeless principles and success habits that will give your child’s life purpose, as well as your own life.

    When it comes to true success, I think we all can agree on one thing. True success means being happy with yourself, being happy with your life, and making a positive difference in the world.

    I scoured some of the best seller success and self-help books from expert authors and life coaches. Some of these books include:

    The Bible (God)

    Think and Grow Rich (Napoleon Hill)

    21 Irrefutable Laws of Leadership (John Maxwell)

    How To Win Friends and Influence People (Dale Carnegie)

    The Richest Man in Babylon (Samuel Clason)

    The Go-Giver (Bob Burg)

    The One Minute Entrepreneur (Ken Blanchard)

    Mastering Your Inner Critic (Susan Brady)

    Awaken the Giant Within (Anthony Robbins)

    Chicken Soup for the Soul series (Jack Canfield)

    And many many more. Each great book has made a powerful impact in many lives. Whether you read books or listen to audiobooks, filling your mind with positive goals and truths will slowly transform your life. I took the books listed above, along with many I did not list, and compiled a list of 100 success principles you should teach your kids. These are timeless principles that will give your home the fundamentals of success and personal growth.

    If you make every effort to teach your kids the success principles on this list, your kids will be that much closer to leading a truly successful and fulfilling life.
