A neighbor next door had a teenager who signed up for a huge number of courses- violin, swimming, skating, dancing, aerobics and others, only to leave all of them half-way through! When she started the course she would be so enthusiastic, talking about it for hours, to her friends and everyone in the society. Whatever happened to her commitment later on?
Many of us have this vivacious aspiration to take on something new- a new assignment, a new job even, or a challenging project. Are you a person who somehow quits halfway? Is the ‘zing’ just not there to see it through? Then you need to check whether your child too has imbibed this characteristic from you.
Teaching children how to take on life’s difficult yet exciting assignments and to stick with them right through, is very important for them to meet with success in whatever they set out to do. How do you see to it that your child never quits half ways?
Teach your child that success comes to only those who keep working at something, without giving up, till the very end. Remember Edison and how he failed for long years, till he came up with the light bulb invention? Inspire your child to work hard with stories like these-leaders and icons of our country, like Sardar Patel, Tagore, Gandhiji succeeded in getting India her freedom because they never quit halfway. Your child needs to learn that quitting half-way is not a very good idea.
