A Fourth Gift

So I was discussing my parenting theory from my previous entry with my parents, whom I credit with being solid parental role models. They added a fourth gift that good parents give their children, and that’s a good work ethic.

In life you will pay for everything at some stage. Sometimes you pay up front and reap rewards for a long time after, and sometimes you get a lot early and pay at the end. This is true when it comes to everything – money, health, love, happiness etc.

The important part here is that hard work combined with smart work will generate results in the long term. Working hard from the outset, is paying for something at the start and reaping the rewards for a long time to come.

To increase the likelihood that someone realizes their life’s goals, a strong work ethic is an essential ingredient.
