Success – Guaranteed Blueprint For Success

Most of us want "success" in life. "Success" can be defined in many ways. We can be successful financially, physically, emotionally, spiritually, with our relationships and in many other ways.

In whatever areas we want to be "successful", there are universal principles that aid us in reaching our life goals. The following ten main principals are guaranteed to aid you in reaching your goals.

Please, do not just gloss over these principals. If you really want success, read and internalize them. Think about them. Come back to them over and over until you become one with them and they become automatic in your life.

These very principals have aided me in reaching all the goals I have accomplished in life, and continue to guide me year after year. I am sharing them with you, because I know without a doubt that they work.

1. Create Quiet Time For Guidance. Many of us do not realize our "purpose" in life until later in life. Some of us never realize it. We go to college, trade schools or start businesses in areas where we have no real interest or talent, because we do not know what else to do with our lives. I know this first hand.

My elementary and high school teachers all told me I was good in math and science. I did love these subjects, and the attention I got from the teachers who told me this. Thus, when I went to college I started out as a pre-medicine major, primarily because of what I was told and because I wanted to "make a lot of money". It did not take long before the chemistry and physics classes blew me away, and I was forced to change my major.

Even though I loved the psychology and marketing classes I took, and did very well in them, I majored in Computer Studies just to get out of college with a marketable profession. Had I known then what I know now, that valuable guidance can be gotten from within, by having quiet time with myself, I could have initially chosen a major more in line with my gifts, talents and purpose in life, which becomes our offering to the world. We call this quiet time concentration or
meditation. As you practice meditation and develop it, guidance from within will be clear and will be disclosed quicker.

2. Know Your Strengths And Weaknesses. If you are a good debater, it is probably not a good idea to study bricklaying. Your natural strengths and talents are a good indicator of what your offering to the world could be. We all have both a profession and hobbies. Unfortunately with not a lot of spare time abounding, in our lives, with all our primary commitments, our hobby time is limited. The ideal lifestyle is to have your profession feel like or be your hobby. Professional athletes, writers, dancers, actors and others create this kind of lifestyle for themselves.

Parental Participation Leads To Science Success For Kids

Early exposure to science is critical because science knowledge is cumulative. Learning science requires a solid foundation of knowledge that can be built upon through further study and exploration. Children should be introduced to science at home as early as possible. Don’t make the mistake of thinking that your child learns all the science they need to know at school. The truth is science education in school is limited and the subject is not usually a high priority for educators. As parents, it is important that we share our knowledge with our children. Every day activities such as growing plants, cooking and caring for animals involve science. Take a look around and you will see that science is everywhere. Parents can choose to engage in scientific activities with their children when they are not in school to build scientific comprehension, encourage scientific exploration and foster a love for science and the pursuit of knowledge.

There are aspects of science that are intellectually demanding, but often simple experiences produce insightful learning. To engage your children in science you need to introduce them to stimulating environments that provide opportunities for observing and discussing science. Zoos, nature centers, oceans, parks, yards and even kitchens are perfect educational environments. Children naturally learn through playful exploration. Educational DVDs, and toys provoke thought and develop skills. When children ask questions to satisfy their natural curiosity, it is an open opportunity to be seized by the parent.

For instance, if a child is fascinated by a light switch and wants to know how it turns the light on and off, inquire into the subject with your child. Find out why and how the switch works. Why does yeast make bread rise? How does a spider spin a web? Why do leaves fall? Why do the birds disappear in the winter?

Identify your child’s interests and encourage them. If a child develops an interest in rocks, study rocks, gems, mining and fossils and build on that curiosity moving on to fossil fuels, heat generation and environmental effects. You will find that one inquiry leads to another.

Fuel their natural curiosity. These activities should be challenging without being frustrating. Don’t force them to do things they are not interested in; rather, engage them in motivating activities that build desire for further exploration. Share your own science related interests and you will be amazed by the impact of genuine enthusiasm. Remember that discussion is a key component to developing scientific knowledge and uncovering additional areas of interest. Encourage your child to talk about their experiences, observations and interests. This discussion will help children to construct thoughts, to form concepts and to examine different relationships that are intermingled in their ideas.

Some simple activities that foster knowledge of and interest in science include: “Finding out how and why things work”, “Sharing ideas and knowledge”, “Making observations and writing or drawing those observations down”, “Making predictions and seeking answers”, “Starting collections -such as rocks or bugs- and observing similarities and differences”, “Figuring …
