Explore something new to you.

Let your kids see you fail and keep going.

Attend workshops, lectures, plays, and cultural events with your kids.

March Growth MindSet: The Time is Now

The Time is Now mindset teaches that all your power exists in the moment. You cannot change the past and the future has not happened, so the only thing to do is take purposeful action in the present to create the ultimate life of your dreams.

Create a vision board and develop an action plan with your children. Teach them how to prioritize, and encourage them to take positive and purposeful action toward their dreams. Sometimes, small steps can make the biggest difference, simply by taking action. It’s okay to plan, but while many people wait for the perfect moment in time before they act, the happiest and most successful individuals take action all the time… even (and especially) when their plans aren’t perfect.
