4 Success Qualities To Instill In Your Child

On Wednesdays I post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on Marriage, Parenting, or Life.

I believe that there are Four Qualities that lead to a successful life for your child – Positive Attitude, Confidence, Determination, and Toughness or Resilience.

A child with a POSITIVE ATTITUDE will wake up each morning optimistic that there will be more positive than not so positive things happening that day.  A Positive Attitude means everything in terms of responding to all life situations.  Charles Swindol said, “Life is 10% what happens and 90% how we respond” and a healthy response is based upon a Positive Attitude.

A child needs CONFIDENCE in their God-given talents and gifts.  A child with solid confidence will give a good, consistent effort every day with their God-given abilities because they believe in themselves.

A child benefits from a DETERMINED spirit to never give up!!!  The great Winston Churchill said his philosophy of life was to “Never, Never, Never Give Up!!!” Determination provides the internal motivation to always be a finisher in achieving goals and dreams.

Finally, a child with TOUGHNESS or resilience will always bounce back from setbacks.  Life has ups but there will also be downs and a child must learn to be tough and resilient after being knocked down.  Hence, a child actually benefits from experiencing bumps and bruises in order to develop toughness.

For a child:  Example is not the best teacher, EXAMPLE IS THE ONLY TEACHER!  So ESSENTIAL ATTITUDES ARE CAUGHT from a parent more than taught by a parent!

Next Wednesday, October 3, I will blog post the 4 Christian Qualities To Instill In Your Child.

Marital Good Times Rule

On Wednesdays I post a practical wisdom thought or suggestion on Marriage, Parenting, or Life.

Research has found that distressed couples have more fights and arguments than happy couples, not surprising. In addition to more arguments, distressed couples also have a tendency to avoid conflicts by withdrawing from each other and that creates a silent marital atmosphere. A muted marital mood compounds the dissatisfaction because that means fewer gratifying times together.

On the other hand, research discovered satisfied couples intentionally have good times together when they are not having arguments.  Happy couples actually plan for those positive times and that produces even more deposits in their emotional love bank account.

TODAY:  Plan for daily, weekly, and monthly good times to strengthen your relationship as well as overcome a silent marital atmosphere.

The Twelve “Cs” are:  Commitment To Improve and Grow; Communication: Enhancing Your Connection; Compliment Daily; Confession (Apologizing) and Forgiveness; Caressing-The Cement; Cohesion:  Your Emotional Connection; Cooperation; Conflict Resolution (Disagreement Discussion); Commitment To Plan; Cash; Clan (Family); and Change.

5th  Marital “C” – Confession (Apologizing) and Forgiveness

Without apologies and forgiveness, it will be nearly impossible for a couple to have a satisfying marriage.  Hurts and sins happen in every satisfying marriage because both spouses are imperfect and flawed.  The “glue” for every marital relationship is apologizing and forgiving.  An explanation of the entire apologizing and forgiving process will help enhance a marital relationship.

This is the fifth video as part of the “Twelve Cs.”  The link is:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwduoXz8NDE&t=4s.   I hope that you will also benefit from the other videos on my YouTube channel.

The Twelve “Cs” are:  Commitment To Improve and Grow; Communication: Enhancing Your Connection; Compliments; Confession (Apologizing) and Forgiveness; Caressing-The Cement; Cohesion:  Your Emotional Connection; Cooperation; Conflict Resolution (Disagreement Discussion); Commitment To Plan; Cash; Clan (Family); and Change.

4th Marital “C” – Caressing: The Cement

Physical touch actually solidifies a marital relationship like cement.  Initially, when I counsel a struggling couple, physical affection is almost nonexistent.  Touch is not only essential for a marriage but physical affection also helps a spouse physically and emotionally.

This is the fourth video as part of the “Twelve Cs.”  The link is:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y2MmQSoxORc  I hope that you will also benefit from the other videos on my YouTube channel.

3rd Marital “C” – Cohesion: Your Emotional Connection

I am excited to share that this morning I posted a YouTube video on “Cohesion:  Your Emotional Connection.”  Focusing on developing emotional closeness creates a powerful “heart connection.” When couples are bonded together stress and tension are less likely to be present in the marriage.  When the cohesion is weak, tensions are usually higher and minor irritations become major arguments.

This is the third video as part of the “Twelve Cs.”  The link is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2U-N-gbL96A&t=20s   I hope that you will also benefit from the other videos on my YouTube channel.

The Twelve “Cs” are:  Commitment To Improve and Grow; Communication: Enhancing Your Connection; Compliments; Confession (Apologizing) and Forgiveness; Caressing; Cohesion:  Your Emotional Connection; Cooperation; Conflict Resolution (Disagreement Discussion); Commitment To Plan; Cash; Clan (Family); and Change.

Communication: Enhancing Your Connection

I am excited to share that this morning I posted a YouTube video on “Communication: Enhancing Your Connection.”  I believe the best synonym for “Communication” is “Connecting.”  Whenever a distressed couple receives counseling, both spouses usually agree that “better communication” would solve a lot of problems.  This video provides ideas and skills for better communication.

This is the second video as part of the “Twelve Cs.”  The first “C”: “Commitment To Improve and Grow” is already on my YouTube channel.

The Twelve “Cs” are:  Commitment To Improve and Grow; Communication: Enhancing Your Connection; Compliments; Confession (Apologizing) and Forgiveness; Caressing; Cohesion; Cooperation; Conflict Resolution (Disagreement Discussion); Commitment To Plan; Cash; Clan (Family); and Change.

Improve Your Twelve “Cs” For A Satisfying Marriage

I am excited to share that I will produce YouTube videos on “IMPROVE YOUR TWELVE “Cs” FOR A SATISFYING MARRIAGE.”  Each video will be approximately 2 to 4 minutes in length.

The Twelve “Cs” are:  Commitment To Improve and Grow; Confession (Apologizing) and Forgiveness; Communication; Caring; Caressing; Cohesion; Cooperation; Conflict Resolution (Disagreement Discussion); Commitment To Plan; Cash; Clan (Family); and Change.

The first “C”: “Commitment To Improve and Grow” is already on my YouTube channel.  For a strong, healthy marriage, each partner should strive to “Improve and Grow” as a spouse on a daily basis.    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xMcE8CrC8o0&t=23s
