In the next week you are going to be given four simple steps to embrace in order to enjoy every day of your life for the rest of your life–and to give your kids the same gift.
Step #1 – The power of words
Our words create our worlds so pay attention to the words you listen to, use, and think about. They are creating the world you live in. What words are you using in your daily conversations that are programming your world? And how are those words also programming your families world?
Step #2 – The power of music
One of the most accessible and enjoyable entertainments in the world is also one of the most powerful programming tools. Music is the universal language of the world. What are you listening to and what is it training you to focus on? What type of music are your kids listening to?
Step #3 – The power of books and reading those books
I don’t have to tell you about the importance of reading. What I will share is that reading to your kids is one of the most powerful activities you can do to shape their minds and ultimately the quality of their lives. What positive thing would happen if you read out loud to your family every day?
Step #4 – The power of the simple shared experience
There’s nothing like sharing an experience with someone you love and then sharing what you loved about the experience. Whether it’s watching a movie, listening to a song, or reading a book together, a shared experience leads to a deeper connection in the conversation. What could you share with someone today that would lift you both up?
