Parenting is riddled with "Limiting Beliefs" and so I ask ...
Does any of this sound familiar?
"Parenting is hard"
"I have to be hard on them. Otherwise, this place would be a zoo"
"It's great he likes art and all, but what's he going to do with that as he gets older?"
"Hey, what are you thinking? Money doesn't grow on trees!"
"Sorry kiddo, life's not easy. Get used to it."
So, what exactly is a Limiting Belief? These are general beliefs about the world, your environment and situation, and the people around you that stand in your way.
More often than not, we accept a limiting belief as true because we've learned it from someone else, or from an "authority" - most often our parents, school/social settings, media, etc. As a result we assume that this belief is "just the way it is."
“One of the hallmark’s of being a high conscious parent is the attitude and mindset of OPPORTUNITY and POSSIBILITIES, along with the internal drive to frequently self-assess and improve.
With that, an anabolic parent is able to see and identify the opportunity to press the “reset” button to assess and address any intention we’re not fully committing to and living out in our efforts to parent more mindfully and consciously.
The word reset means to "set again or differently" and often times all it takes is just a little tweak in the small stuff to get us back on course.
So, there’s no need to wait for your typical “reset” moments like New Year’s, a birthday or anniversary to check-in on your parenting goals. Use your high conscious level 5 anabolic attitude and mindset to steer yourself back on course.
So excited to share how a young 15 year old gained so much value from learning about his levels of conscious/unconscious self as he figures out how to step into his Self-Leadership while navigating the high school landscape.
I came across this video and thought it was absolutely brilliant and fits right into what I call LEVEL 5 parenting!!
Cameron Herold takes the Ted Talk stage to share what it means to raise our children with an entrepreneurial mindset, much like the way a level 5 parent would operate. This is an inspiring message of how to cultivate the conditions in our homes in ways that shift our children to be problem solvers. Cameron's perspective advocates how an entrepreneurial mind is "groomed" and by raising our children from this mindset, "we can fix the many things in the world that are a problem today." As he says, entrepreneurs are those who have "ideas, passions, see needs in the world and then go stand up and do it - putting everything on the line to make it happen." Imagine our kids living so boldly, full of confidence, passion and certitude? Living in leadership and not as a passenger?
