Only if their parents had been supportive enough, they would have done a whole bunch more than they can even think of today.
Don’t allow that to happen to your children. Teach them the real-world realities and teach them the necessary life skill like people skills, communication skills, thinking outside box, creativity and innovation, and what that means in our modern world.
Identify their strengths, identify their weaknesses, make them aware of their strengths, and help them develop their weaknesses.
How you can do it?
Encourage them to take ownership of their own success by creating opportunities for themselves, making sure they’re working toward their vision, and helping them achieve it.
Here is a short list of aspects that will help you help your child’s future, making them capable of shaping their own future with a little effort and commitment.
Help them understand their own value
You may want to consider talking to him/her about the issue. If he/she has been bullied before, then you might need to take action.
Show them how valuable they are by encouraging them to discover their strengths and weaknesses and then teach them how to utilize those strengths and weaknesses in different kinds of situations.
Teach your kids how to be experts in their niches.
Help them develop skills
Regardless of their age, children need to be taught certain essential life lessons, including “how to learn”, “people” (or social) “skills”, and so forth. You need these skills to live a full and happy lifestyle. Not just for your children, but if possible, for yourself too.
Help them develop a plan for achieving that future
Depending on your kid’s age and his/her interests, you can encourage him/her to explore more deeply and learn more. When he/she starts relating to the existing growth and understands the concepts better, his/her creativity and innovative eye will open up.
It’s the time when they will really need you the most. They will just need someone who believes in them and their vision.
Make them understand the four different career quadrant types
Because we were taught that jobs are secure, we may have been reluctant to develop our mindsets toward entrepreneurship and investments.
You don’t want to give your children an easy way out by teaching them to just run away from their problems instead of solving them.
If you want your children to learn something, then be sure to show them first and explain it later.
Show them that their career isn’t just about doing the job. It’s about practicing and becoming good at things that you enjoy.
The job quadrant journey usually looks something like this:
- Self-employment: Create a side hustle while working full time to learn about running a small company.
- Investor: After creating several successful income streams, you’re ready to learn and start investing in other businesses.
- Business: Create multiple income streams, with a vision to turn your side hustles into a business empire
Explain the terms like business, goal, and vision
Make sure your children learn about the different types of teams, including the ones mentioned above. Many people today don’t get anywhere because they’re stuck in an old way of thinking. They don’t understand what “growth” means and how to use it in real life.
For instance, most people believe that they cannot succeed no matter how good they are at something. It’s all due to the way these companies have been run by people who don’t care for anything but making money.
So there are two sides to everything, you must teach your kid what they are, what to learn from them, and how to use them!
