***I am not a parent, nor do I claim to be. I only speak the truth as it comes to me. I am no better or worse than the next person.***
Leadership expert John Maxwell says it best. “Everything rises and falls on leadership.”
In life we have choices, we have leaders, we have failures that lie to themselves and others that claim to be leaders. Odds are every leader used to be a liar. They used to think they were a leader when they really were not. Leadership is all about the process of learning to be better.
The reason for this post is really simple. I am a “Millennial” or whatever you want to call it. Something to think about is how we are raised. I don’t know about any other millennials, but what I do know is that my parents were NEVER there for me growing up. That itself can be bad. When you are left to do whatever you want whenever you want it can lead to a very uncooperative person, because it has always been their way.
Another way to look at parental leadership is that the parents coddle their kids, and coddle, and coddle. By doing this those parents are screwing society by raising a massive self-centered BRAT that is useless to the world.
There are BRATS in every generation and every age from young to old. This is not about the bad people in this world, but simply the failures in life.
Everyone fails at some point in their life and the more we fail the better off we are, because it humbles us and makes us better. Actually failure is not even a real word. It’s a lie that most people believe to be something worse than it really is.
If you are a parent make sure you are a parent and not an MIA parent, a jerk, or a kid that never grew up. If you are any of the above you should have never had kids. You are only doing them wrong by not raising them.
Teaching kids and disciplining them at a young age is simple and given to us by our Father in Heaven. Proverbs specifically tell us to discipline our children if we do not want them to cause havoc when they are older. We must heed that call, if we want to move society forward continually.
If not there is no need to keep advancing the human race, because by our own nature we will destroy it.
While life is not all sunshine and roses, it is not supposed to be. Life is hard and we need to extract what we can out of it to make it the best we can. We need to be a leader always and never allow something or someone to let us believe the lie that we are a failure.
