Be Like A Child

 

Be happy like a child!

      My favorite personal development coach is Jim Rohn. I just discovered his teachings about a month ago, and I have to say his style really reaches me. I can remember the things he says to me so well.

Today, I came across an article, Practice Being Like a Child. Think about it. Maybe if we just relaxed a little and act childish, we may carry out some of our wishes.

Remember the master teacher said 2000 years ago. “Unless you can become like little children, your chances are zero, you haven’t got a prayer”.

There are 4 ways:

Be curious. Learn to be curious like a child. Kids can ask a million questions. What will kids do if they want to know something bad enough? They use their curiosity to learn, it helps them to reach, and grow.

Get excited! There’s nothing that has more magic than childish excitement. So much you don’t want to go to bed at night, and you can’t wait to get up early in the morning. If you’re too old to get excited, then you’re just too old! Don’t get old.

Have faith. Faith is childish. Adults have a tendency to be skeptical and cynical. Kids think they can and there’s nothing to stop them. They just don’t have that “I don’t know if I can” mentality. They know what they want.

Trust. Trust is a childish virtue, but it has merit. Have you heard “sleep like a baby”? Childish trust. After your job is done, leave it in someone else’s hands.

Curiosity, excitement, faith, and trust. What a powerful combination to put back into our lives.
