Our kids seeing us succeed in all areas of life, balancing health, family & friendships, relaxation and careers & life goals optimally--thriving and passionate, is a worthy and attainable goal.
Susan Ford Collins studied successful people and discovered commonalities; coining the term "success has gears;" which is the title of another book in this series. In Our Children are Watching she focuses on leaders applying these 3 gears (plus 10 leadership skills) for optimal living and for imparting and releasing the next generation.
I love Ms. Collins out of the box thinking which started her on the road to observing and applying success traits versus focused on fixing problems in society. Here are a few quotes:
“Earth is a planet of commerce. Our work here is the Completion of dreams. In return for Completing others’ dreams, we are paid money. Then we can use that money to Complete our own dreams.”
“The completion of our dreams is the fruit of our success. The completion of our children's dreams is the fruit of our leadership.”
“As my grandmother used to say, “There's no wind so evil that it doesn't blow some good.” Addictions provide us with a profound opportunity to recognize the distinction between Outcome and Method. The Outcome is what we want to experience. The methods are the ways we use to get it.”
Included are lots of stories to help us grasp concepts, loads of practical applications to everyday life and help for areas we are stuck. This author imparts a mindset change to break us free into our heart’s desires.
This is the third book in the series and the one I enjoyed most. Perhaps I had grasped enough concepts/mindset to really start to co-create. This was a difficult, but important read. One I doubt I would have read except for it being part of my book club. I am SO grateful our paths crossed because it was exactly where I was at (which exemplifies one of Ms. Collins points :) ). This book is freedom!
I received a complimentary book from The Book Club Network at bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review.
Here are the skills:
Defining success, recognizing it, and feeling satisfied every day
Shifting success gears (following, competing, creating)
Hologramming (making dreams and plans more powerful)
Choosing and using the right experts
Changing old patterns, feelings, etc
Holding on to our outcome
Shielding our dreams
Switching back to positive
Maintaining health and balance
She ends with the ten responsibilities of a leader, reflections of the ten skills.
Collins shares more of her own story in this book than the other two. Because of that, I found this book to be more personable than the previous ones in the series. There is a little repetition in the series but there is enough new material in this book that it is certainly worth reading, even if the others have been read. There are lots of interesting stories included too that illustrate her principles.
I really liked Collins' suggestion to recognize the success of each day. What an encouragement. I also liked her insights into Brain Language. And her explanation of why kids do exactly what you've told them not to was enlightening. This is a good book for people who want to model success to their children.
I received a complimentary digital copy of this book through The Book Club Network for the purpose of an independent and honest review.
