You have to keep a track of your child’s outdoor activities. What activities they are doing and what they are talking about often. Encourage those activities and build on them. Try to find out their inner talents and lead them to grow in that field.

Many Parents are doing this mistake, try to find out what your child is capable of. Every kid will be capable of something, finding that one is the toughest part here.

5. Sculpt:

You have to provide a chance to your children to move and create, it’s like you are sculpting their brains. Play fosters connections and prunes. As kids already knew to sculpt sand and snow, they will sculpt their future.

5 Ways to Get your Emotions under Control:

1. Realize the Situation:

Sometimes you need to avoid some circumstances which triggered unwanted emotions. When you know that you will most likely get angry when you are in a hurry, then don’t extend the things till the last minute. Try to avoid that situation to happen. Leave the place before 10 minutes or reach office before the actual time you need to and you won’t be bothered so much in the traffic.

2. Change the Situation:

The Emotion where everyone is trying to reduce is the disappointment. You are always expecting something, for example you like to serve “perfect meal” to friends and family, but when something goes wrong and at the end only huge disappointment remains. You try to modify the situation by finding the best recipes which is within your range of ability.

3. Attentional focus:

Let’s assume a situation where you constantly feel inferior to the people around you who looks great. For example, when you are at the gym, you notice the regulars on weight machines who lift three times as much as you can. You will feel low and can’t help but watch with envy and wonder at what they are able to do. You should change your focus from them to your fellow gym rats who will help you feel more confident about your abilities. Just focus on what you are doing and eventually you will gain some strength you desire.

4. Changing your thoughts:

Deepest emotions are beliefs which drive them to the core. You feel low or sad when you believe you have lost something. By having a second thoughts you may not be able to change the situation but at least you could change the way you believe the situation is affecting you.

5. Change your response:

If everything goes wrong and you can’t able to avoid just modify your focus or change your thoughts on the alternate response. The final motto is to realize the situation accordingly and get control of your response. In some situation, you might leave some unwanted words, you should see the situation from other side, later you will realize how you reacted in the situation and the next second your mind will say you could have reacted in a different way. Similarly, when you can’t stop laughing when everyone looks serious, gather your inner resources and try to change your facial expression.

If there is any failure, then we feel low and some feel like their life is done.

Don’t Give up | Five Secret Mantras which Leads you to Success

The environmental truth is that failure is inevitable and at the end without any doubt if you keep on trying, failure will lead to success. For example, when you take the best people in all respective fields, at the beginning they would have faced n-number of failures. Bill Gates is one of the richest man in the world, but at the beginning when he tried to start a company, it was a huge loss. Famous author Steven King’s popular novel, Carrie, was rejected more than 30 times before it got published.

When you see every successful person, there will be a failure story within him. Just they all learnt from their mistakes in failures and used them as a key to the success.  

Listed out the five ways where you can lead your failure to success:

Learn from the Mistakes:

Mistakes is the precious and gifted opportunity to learn something new in depth with the work you have done. The least it teaches you not to repeat the same mistake and never be afraid of making them. Till you reach your success, there will be more failures and mistakes than you will ever remember, but if you take it as a lesson from each mistakes and you will get more wisdom who never dares anything will.

Failure teach where you stand at your work:

Knowing about yourself is the important factor in achieving success. Few things teach about ourselves, like where you stand at the work you are doing and how far you are aware about the same. Failure means you have courage, you have the strength to endure and face it. It shows you that you have the capacity to face all kinds of failures and to accept them and value them as an experience. It’s very important to remind ourselves what lead up to a particular failure.

Don’t try to Hide your failure:

We all have a mind-set to remember our victories alone and forgot our failures. It will be very useful if you keep a track of your failures. Talk to yourself about the failures and keep a journal and reminders of your failures. The idea is to not to completely think about the failure, but to value them and use it as an experience in order to avoid the same mistake in future.

Failure is the road to Success:

It seems illogic but a failure by definition is an unplanned outcome. It will route you to a path you would otherwise have avoided. It will take you to a place you would otherwise never have gone. If any unplanned things happened, we should consider it as an opportunity. Pay close attention to the opportunities that your failures give you and indeed you have to be open to them.

Failure is a Part of Success:

Without failure there is no success, failure is a part of success and opposite of success is apathy. Those who have failed many times are the people that succeed most often. Without giving up, they try again and again until they reach the success. You will never make it, if you quit at the first loss.

So the point here is, don’t feel low and stop when you face any failures. Use them as an experience and keep on trying at one point you will reach your success. Good luck!
