Rhythm Child

I'm still super busy in moveville and headed to paintvalley shortly. So, I'm stopping in quickly to share a guest poster with you guys, Mr. Norm Jones. Norm is an award-winning children's artist and motivational speaker.

I pretty much need a motivational speaker around me at all times whilst packing. Just saying.

Positive Thinking For Children
Norm Jones

In the first sentence of his best-selling book, The Power of Positive Thinking, author and self help guru Norman Vincent Peale writes, “Believe in yourself. Have faith in your abilities. Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers you cannot be successful or happy. But with sound self confidence you can succeed. A sense of inferiority and inadequacy interferes with the attainment of your hopes, but self-confidence leads to self-realization and successful achievement.” These words have guided millions of people since they were written in 1952 and are the basis of a worldwide self-help movement that has flourished in recent years. The idea that positive input can result in a positive outcome is such a simple concept, yet it seems to have been forgotten and lost in our current state of fear, frustration, and hopelessness.

As adults, living with purpose has become increasingly harder to accomplish since we spend most of our days fighting against the social pressures and negative influences that have assaulted us since childhood. The messages that we are exposed to are not raising our own awareness, but instead numbing it with competitive thoughts of status and beauty. Fortunately, there is new spirit that is changing the direction of our social conscience and hoping to re-direct the fate of future generations by instilling more positive ideas in our children.

With the increased exposure to technology, the youth of today have the opportunity to instantaneously see images from the depths of nature and hear voices from around the globe. With our help and influence, they can process this information and start to learn very valuable life lessons at an early age that will set them on the path to successful achievement. Our culture is now moving so fast and furious that we can’t afford to wait until children discover these things for themselves like we did. It is now necessary to prepare our children on how to handle all of this stimulation. If we can somehow get them to entertain concepts like positive thinking and conscious living, then they will at least have a greater chance of developing into strong individuals who live with conviction and have courageous ideas.

This type of human education is directly related to the future of our world and our lasting impact on
the planet. We have now inherited the responsibility of sharing important lessons with our young and making sure they are aware of the importance of their thoughts. We need to pass on that there are so many discoveries that take place in life’s journey and deeper levels of understanding that can occur at all phases of that journey as long as we remain open and receptive. We should continually try and examine the things that unite us as humans and come up with ways to deliver those same ideals to our children so that they have the necessary tools to carry us further into the evolution of our culture.

I have always been an huge believer in the power of positive thinking, and practice it as much as my brain allows me to. I've even read and watched The Secret numerous times. Allowing your mind to have negative thoughts is very unhealthy. I do believe thinking negatively attracts negative things into your life. Thinking positively attracts positive things into your life. Try it. You will see a difference.

I love being able to share the practice of positive thinking with Adrienne. Children shouldn't have any worries.

  1. I loved this and definitely need to be practicing positive thinking myself as well as teaching my children to be more positive in their daily lives. I am going to be checking out the book mentioned and setting some new goals for myself as well.
