Maybe you have kids. Maybe you don’t have kids yet. Perhaps one day, you’ll need to motivate your kids to achieve success in their lives.
Perhaps you hope for them to study hard for better grades. Or you hope that they’ll work hard to go somewhere in their careers.
But if you haven’t gotten desirable grades or success in your own life, how are you going to expect them to find inspirations from your advices?
I know what you’re thinking. You’re going to tell them all the things you’ve done and not done to result in your current mediocre state. If that’s what you’re thinking, I suggest that you reconsider.
Would that help you earn their respect? Would that help motivate them? Or would that inadvertantly just reveal your hypocrisy.
Success takes time. If you aren’t successful yet, then start to put in the necessary sacrifices now. You need to be successful. Your kids need you to be successful too.
