Kids, in these few years, you’ll become teenagers. Difficult time. But I know you’ve prepared.
You think that’s all about physical changes and attraction to opposite sex. It is not. It is about discovering who you are.
But most importantly, you should learn how to make a good decision. For your life. For your happiness.
You will tempted to cut corners. You will try to find an easy way out. But that is not what I teach you. And you know it.
Decision, as I teach you, has many components. The viable alternatives, the cost and benefit and random event you call it luck.
Be perceptive. The difference between smart and less smart people is their capabilities to generate alternatives for problem at hands. Think.
You maybe think you only has two choices. Think again. Maybe the third alternative, the better one, is just around the corner.
Kids, every alternative comes with its’ cost and benefit. Try to figure that out. Comprehensively. Never rush to anything.
Once you decide, follow it through. There is no more “what if”. Your only concern is the outcome. Cause you know that the ship has sailed.
About the outcomes. Although we have planned it to the dot, there is no guarantee we can get what we want. Life has their own humour.
There is no way we can control everything. Embrace life as it is. Full of surprise. For the good or bad.
Kids, if I have to warn you about making good decision, it will be “Don’t push your luck”. Never trapped in wishfull thinking. That’s your enemy.
I can picture you stumble and fall. But in my mind, you always find your way to get up and prevail.
Because you are my kids.
