6 Important Lessons We Can Learn From Children
Through the honest, innocent eyes of a child, anything is possible. As we get older, it’s sometimes hard to believe we were children once, too!
Imagine if you were to embrace life with childlike wonder. What would the possibilities be?
This week, I invite you to take these six important lessons to transform:
Children have the remarkable ability to see opportunity in each new day. Whatever happened the day before, doesn’t linger like a gray cloud.
Take each day as it comes and marvel in the possibility of a new, fresh day.
Children are endlessly seeking new challenges; climbing a tall tree, speeding down a hill on their bike, racing their friends on the playground.
They have no fear! It’s almost as if they’re invincible. Embrace challenge and adversity; fall down, scrape your knee, then get back up and keep going!
Children are incredibly ambitious. They want to be astronauts, firefighters, professional athletes, doctors, lawyers…
Take on greater ambition in your career and writing. Who says you can’t be a successful entrepreneur or best-selling author?
Set your goals ridiculously high and never stop dreaming.
Friendship becomes even more important in adulthood. Nurture your network of friends and colleagues.
Actively seek out opportunities to support those you care for, without expectation of reciprocation.
Get some dirt on your hands! Don’t be afraid to get a little messy. Within your mess, you may find creative freedom or a new outlet for expression.
If you’re a writer, like me, try new forms of writing, such as journaling, short stories or poetry.
Children are notorious storytellers, and they really know how to embellish! As an author, ignite your writing with imagery, passion and experience— have your reader hanging on to your every word.
Being an adult doesn’t mean you have to stop being a child, too. Reconnect with your wonder, fire and spunk for life, and let it seep into your writing.
Are you ready to get your book OUT of your head, ON to paper and IN to the hands that need it most? Let’s get started!
