Maze a day 119


Maze a day 119

"A master can tell you what he expects of you. A teacher, though, awakens your own expectations." Patricia Neal

Maze 119: I chose this quote because my sons.  They are so successful at reaching their goals at times I get jealous.  And although my wife and a I have taught and expect the best from them they have began to become the teacher in my life.  Watching them succeed has helped awaken my own expectations of myself.

As they get older I pray that I can be a teacher vs a master.  But I know I already have expectations that I feel must be met.  When I need to realize that through good parenting I can help them to realize and achieve their own expectations.  As I work hard to achieve that fine balance I have to wonder how to stay out of their way and yet lead them to where they want to go!

  1. Share what you read, teach them about critical thinking. It is how to discern truth from fabrication, and how one does it that can make a man or woman successful. Ask them for their opinions. If you value their thoughts, they will too.
