A Time For Teaching

This month, Black History month, is a time for teaching. It’s a time set apart, as we know, to celebrate, to reflect, to honour, and to move into destiny. Every part of the story that was hidden, suppressed, or deliberately left out of the collection of books about the life and work of the first creation must be told to the descendants.

Whatever the original intention, the life and work of Black people cannot be destroyed; no, it cannot be forgotten. It cannot be forgotten, for much of life reflects the genius of this people. Much of life moved forward because of their discoveries and entrepreneurship.

It  is important to tell the descendants of the first people of their strategic place in life, for that is the key to their emancipation from the continued work of those who are bent on keeping them less than who they are. They need to know the greatness of their capacities and the innate ability to do the things that move creation forward.

Our boys must be reminded of how smart they are. They must be reminded of the accomplishments of those that have gone before them, those who are still here and they must be given opportunities to put forth their ideas into the areas of developing and constructing solutions and cures for the bold challenges of our time. It will take the genius of our people to replicate and initiate solutions that the future demands.

Look at a child’s face as it lights up with the knowledge that he is smart, and great, and able! So, tell them just that, because they really are. Find the positive things that they need to hear and tell them daily; in the morning, at noontime and in the evening. Saturate their minds with the information that will awaken their genius and in the end, our world will be better for it. Take this time for teaching seriously and teach our children the greatness of their history, their present, and their future.

It’s Never Too Late to Do What’s Right

never late

How often have we heard that it’s too late to take action on something that is important? It is at such times that we should press against the forces that suggest that we do nothing, and with all our might, push past those forces and do what needs to be done.

It is always easy to do nothing; to regard the present time as too late; to look at the task before us as too much to do. We at times are our worst inhibitors of success. If we only take courage, persist against the feeling of weakness or inability; we can do anything, if we only try. All it takes is to tell ourselves that we can do anything.\

As we move deeper into the month of February, already, there are things that we purposed to do at the beginning of the year that seem as though they will not happen. May I remind you that the year is still young. There are many more months to go. In fact, don’t measure your life by the number of years; instead, measure it one day at a time. Really, what is a year but a number of days? What is a month, but a number of days? And a week, but a number of days? It will be less stressful, if we live life one day at a time. I know we can handle that.

Let each day be a time to work on those things that can improve your health as well as your wealth. There is a correlation between health and wealth. Both are also interchangeable. As your health goes, so does your wealth and vice versa.

Begin to add to your knowledge by reading more, finding out more, attending classes and conferences and round table talks. Find someone whom in your estimation is successful and ask them questions about what they do. Begin to live the life you want to be. I call it “act as of”.

Act as if you are the person that you want to be. Act successful, wealthy, empowered, accomplished, and inspired. Stop being hard on yourself. You deserve the best that life has to offer. Go out and take it. It’s never too late to do what is right for you. So, do it today. Do it now.

Time to Think of Renewal

 

Since time is always of the essence, it is never too early to do first things first. As we near the end of 2017, we can begin to set our sight on the times ahead. The end of one year and the beginning of another as simply parts of our continued journey here on this earth. Since our beginning, we have not stopped and begun again. If anything, we change directions, continue on some courses, stopped to refresh and reboot, or increase our pace. We really do not end and begin again. This is so, because our life is a journey which will end at some point for good.

While we travel our journey, we can or we must consider our purpose. Why are we here? Where should we be? What is our service and to whom is our service? What do we have to give and by what mechanisms should we give it? These are some of the many questions we must ask to define and clarify our purpose. A focused purpose will provide a greater result than one that is ill-defined and sparse.

It has become clear, especially in recent time that economies around the globe are changing. What used to be a definite path for many families are no longer the norm. Industries that once required little knowledge have changed to those that demand specific skills and expertise. For example, coal for heating home is surely going the way of dinosaurs.  Cheaper and cleaner energy forms have pushed coal fuel to the back of the energy line. The promise of Donald Trump that he will put coal miners back to work is really untrue. So, with the emergence of wind, nuclear, and solar energy sources among others, to be employed in the energy sector required specific skills in science and technology. That is a far cry from digging for coal and the like.

New forms of entrepreneurship are springing up everywhere as a result of the demands of new economies. Many of the old brick and mortar stores are being replaced by tiny businesses, operating from homes or small spaces with the use of computer technology. Wealth creation can be achieved at a desk with a desktop or laptop computer and a few more gadgets. Payment systems are also changing, making the movement of funds easier and cheaper. It is with that in mind that I encourage many budding entrepreneurs and young people dreaming of finding their niche in life or want to make it BIG in E-Commerce to consider the following:

It Feels Like Everybody is Against Me

Have you ever been at a point in your life where you felt that nothing was going right simply because everyone was against you? As irrational as that may seem, the way the feeling is explained by some who felt that way is that it seems that while others around them got a break or two for doing wrong things, they never seem to qualify for a break. One boy said< "that really hurts; it hurts a lot".

The thing is that, unless one has the capacity to empathize with that feeling, there could very easily be the thought that boys who act out because they feel that everyone is against them, are just weaklings who are incapable of coping with the contours of life. They do not have what it takes to survive and that is their problem. Have you ever dismissed someone's behaviour even though you did not know what caused it? I think a lot of us do just that. How often do we take the time to ask the appropriate questions that could better inform our thinking and hence our responses?

I believe that we can all agree that there are people who do not know why they never get breaks. Getting a break is for most people a bid deal. Imagine you were speeding, got stopped by the police who proceeded to walk back to the police vehicle with the seeming intention to write up a ticket. As he returned, you heard, "I'm giving you a break this time, but be careful to drive at the speed limit". Wouldn't your fast beating heart slow down and you breathe a sigh of relief? You can share a positive story with your family and friends, and you would think nicely of the officer. You see, unlike many things, getting a break is a bid deal and when there are those who never seem to have that kind of experience, it can be very frustrating and feel like, "everybody is against them".

I've come across scores of boys who tell me that they don't understand why they always seem to be on the wrong side of authorities, be they parents or teachers, and worse yet, the police. As a school principal, I relished the opportunity to give a child who seemed to be constantly "in trouble" a break. Very often such children took the act of forgiveness as a launching point to exhibit better behaviour. It brings me to the other point of this discussion, the act of forgiveness. To forgive is to take the sting out of any unpleasant experience. Forgiveness benefits both the person receiving forgiveness and the person giving it. Both persons receive a measure of wellness. And to forgive is not letting someone get away with wrong. What is does really is giving the offender a path to wholeness.

What I am saying is that we must invest in forgiveness more than we do condemning. Let's give our boys hope that things will get better. Give them a break here and there. After all, they are in construction and if you realize a construction site, it's really very messy during the building stage. But, when the building is finished, when everything is cleaned up, what a marvelous sight!

There is marvel within our boys. The construction state is often messy, but, let's understand the process and work with them. Stand where they stand. Sit where they sit. Listen to them and hear them out. They have marvelous designs within them. Now it's left for us to lead out those wonderful designs. Let's do it for them and for us.

Until next time. For more ideas to help us train our boy, get a copy of my blueprint for success book: DEFEATING THE ENEMY TO YOUR SUCCESS — How to Break Through to a Life of Wealth Creation and Freedom. Get your copy, now!

Your Boys Hear What They See

 

Have you noticed that what you do is so loud that it overpowers what you say? It’s similar to the proverbial saying: “what you do is more powerful than what you say”. Children in general and boys in particular notice the power in our actions over than the sound in our words. When you tell a boy not to do something that you, yourself do, the boy does not hear anything you say as his eyes are fixed on your actions. That being the case, our boys are more likely to imitate us rather than to listen to us.

If you can agree with my earlier discussion, can you see yourself in your boy’s behaviours? Is it really true then: “Like father, like son”. What do you say if your son does exactly what you do? You should correct him quickly and unequivocally. But is that all you will do? Will you also make a decision to change the way you act, especially when he is in your presence? If you are tardy, would you be offended by your boy’s tardiness? If you do not help in the home, will you scold your boy for not helping with chores? Every bit that we do to help our boys will produce huge rewards. So, I say, let’s show them how we want them to act rather than constantly telling them. Let them be able to say, “I see you” rather than “I hear you”.

I see you

Does your boy see you taking time to read books? Does he see you taking time to be with him, and depending on his age, does he notice that his dad leaves everything to play with him? Many times, our boys don’t need too many things from us as much as they need our time. If you work hard for your children; leaving home before they wake in the morning and coming back home after they have gone to bed, do you think that your children will love you more for that than they would if you were physically with them? Although your children need you to bring home the bacon and to ensure that a roof is over their heads and clothes on their backs, they would happily accept less food, less clothes and a leaky roof if their dad is physically with them.

So, here’s the deal. Spend time talking to your children, especially your boy(s). Find out all you can about their lives. Teach them what they need to know or others will and you may not like what they learn from others. Decide to show your children how to do something, rather than telling them how to do it. A Chinese proverb speaks to this approach:

I hear, and I forget; I see, and I remember; I do, and I understand.

Spend time reading with your boy — that way, he may come to like reading (stop telling him to “go to read”. Read with him — you a paragraph and he the other paragraph< and so on). Go bicycle riding with him, go to the park with him, and take him to work with you (never mind it’s a low paying job — as long as it’s legal). Your boy will become what he sees in his parents, especially his dad.

Knowing what you now know, how will you change the way you deal with your boy(s)? A good time to make a change for yourself, your boy, your community, and the world.

Until next time, let’s make a positive change for life.

You are the Person

What impact do those words have on you? To know that you are the person that your son is looking up to; depending u upon to tell and to show the way forward. What an awesome responsibility and weight that is for you. Something that cannot be taken lightly. Those eyes that pierce through everything to look up to you and to no one else but you.

zen

Do you get too busy about the things that you do, such that you do not have time enough to give to the needs 9 not wants) of your boy? If he indeed is looking up to you, how deadly is it, if he is not getting anything from you? What is he to do? Should he find information elsewhere and if he does will you get on his case? Will that be justified?

Frederick Douglass once said, “It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men”. Better to build than to repair. As well, it may cost less in the long run. Less, stress, less pain, less dark days, less sleepless nights, less worry, I can go on and on. But, you get it.

While they are boys, the job before us is simpler than what it would be in adulthood. I can still hear the words of my mother, words spoken very long ago, “you can bend a tree when it is young”. True, isn’t it! Can you see the futility of trying to do with a fully grown plant what you could have done when it was little? It’s the same way with our little boys. We must do what we ought to do now. Any time later is very risky.

tree

More than anyone else, boys long to have conversations with their dads. Too often, dads are unaware of the power of their presence in the lives of their boys. But, let’s be real, what you can give to your son, no one else can. What a difference it would make in your family if you up your game of being a father to your son? How better at school will he be? What a better human being would he become and what a greater contribution can he give to the world.

Dads, what will be, is in your control. Don’t let it slip. Those eyes are looking up to you and learning from you every day.

See you tomorrow!
