Goal Setting for Kids
Why Teach Your Kids Goal Setting?
To reach a port we must sail, sometimes with the wind and sometimes against it. But we must not drift or lie at anchor. —Oliver Wendell Holmes
As a parent, you have the most important job on earth. You can guarantee your child's future success by instilling success characteristics—namely goal setting, and self-confidence—into his daily life, so that he will use them automatically throughout life.
This will ultimately ensure his success in academic pursuits and later in whatever career or business he chooses.
To succeed in life, we must know exactly what it is we are trying to do. This is the first and foremost secret of successful people—a secret you can give as a gift to your kids when you teach them to set goals. YOUR goals should be to give your kids a habit of setting goals—just as you teach them to brush their teeth!
