The #1 Predictor of Long Term Success in Kids

The #1 Predictor of Long Term Success in Kids

I LOVED yesterday morning’s topic.

Wondering what the the #1 determinant of long term success in kids is? Intelligence? IQ? Natural talent? Some fascinating research here, so parents, don’t miss this one. And I won’t give it away in the post, you’ll just have to watch.

Before I go, I want to close with my favorite parenting quote. As a certified life coach, mentor, entrepreneur, and mom to two boys, age 10 and 13, I know this to be true.

Pole Dancing, What Ifs and Living Life

To be honest, there is little to add here. Please watch this. I can’t think of a better #MotivationMonday. What I will say is, the older I get, the more like myself I feel. I’m not holding back. I just want to be… ME. I think at 40, you suddenly wake up to your life.

What do you think?

Why You Should Make Friends With Failure

Why You Should Make Friends With Failure

Silicon Valley believes that if you aren’t failing frequently, you aren’t risking enough. This philosophy serves the high-tech capital well, but chances are you likely don’t follow that same approach in your own life.

But you should. Because failure is your friend.

Henry Ford — one of our great inventors and someone who failed more often than he succeeded — said “failure is an opportunity to begin again more intelligently.” And yet, more often than not, we fear failure and avoid it at all costs, even if it means sacrificing opportunity and potential happiness. We let fear paralyze us until we’re stuck in inertia, when we should be embracing “good” risk and failing up.

Behind the Stigma of Single Mothers

As much as we’d like to think that we’re in a progressive, egalitarian culture, some 1950’s stigmas never die, no matter what we’re beating the horse with. While we can ascribe some of that to the fact that a major portion of the population grew up with these views, the stigmas against single mothers are still alive and thriving. In fact, 70% of Americans believe that single mothers have a negative influence on society.

No, that’s way too high, you say. There are 9.9 million single moms, surely they can find more than three out of ten supporters? Well, reality says differently. America still dislikes single moms, despite their frequent appearances in popular media and real life. Predictably, their reasoning is faulty to the core and reveals a lot more about their insecurities than it does about single mothers. However, it is still good to know what you’re up against, so without further ado:
