The advice I will give my son one day …

2015-02-08 20:54

Listen kid, firstly I want you to know that you are magnificent. You are born in the country of opportunity, the throne and all of its privileges are there waiting to be taken. There will be a time when life will be extremely difficult, it will test you and make you wish that you never tried but don’t give up. When that time comes I want you to work harder because this world is yours for the taking. When you feel like giving up that is when you work harder and that is when you will become extremely successful. Set your goals high and smash them. Be the lion I know you are. Do not let anyone tell you that you can or cannot do something, be so confident in your abilities and talent that you will need no one’s permission. People will hurt you, cheat you and harm you. Never replicate that behaviour, always come out of any situation with your dignity and self-respect intact. I will give you all the freedom any child or young adult could ever ask for. You can do whatever you like but your moral compass and values will be so strong that you will automatically only do right and hardly do any wrong. I want to teach you how to read people. Read their feelings and read their intentions. Do not let harmful people enter unnecessarily into your life. I also want you to know that you should help people. Make them strong, compliment them, build them up and give them hope in every single situation. When someone needs your help, never think twice and never expect it to be reciprocal. I want you to love and love entirely with every feeling and aspect of your being. You will go through numerous relationships in your life which will eventually lead you to the one that you were meant to be with. Be patient. Love the process. I want you to forget your age, for you there will be no stereo types, there will be no restrictions on what and when you can achieve or do something. I want you to learn the difference between procrastination and patience. I want you to never wait for things to happen, make those things happen. Remember the best project you can work on is you. You have the ability and the opportunity to make your project amazing. Just keep working. I want you to figure out your purpose on this earth and set the world on fire. Most importantly I want you to live life to the fullest, have fun and meet wonderful people.
