11 Habits For Success: #11 Learn and Do it Again!

Short and sweet today.

“Do it Again!” is the shout from my rough and tumble younger son.

“Throw me now!” yells my more safety-conscious older son.

They didn’t know it, but they really summed up a lot of what it takes to be successful.

For my youngest, being tossed over my head from the floor (where I was seated) to the couch was an obvious thrill. He wanted in on it right away, and then he wanted to do it again.

For my oldest, he needed to see that it ‘worked’ with his younger brother, then he was willing to give it a go.

Both learned and wanted then to ‘do it again’.

What are you learning that works for you? What makes you successful?

What will you do to ensure that you ‘do that again’?

    Awesome how much we can learn from our children if we keep our heart open to the learning process of life. I love to create great memories in my life especially with my family. My husband means the world to me; he has that place right after the Lord. I really do believe that when our relationship with our family is in the right place we are able to do so many things.

      agreed fully Olga. I feel like our family are the primary people God uses to help us connect with His will!

    What a fabulous story! Great that we can learn from our children. When I first started out as a writer I found rejection letters hard to take. It would’ve been so easy to give up. But as soon as I accepted it was part of the job and nothing personal I carried on writing. Again and again!

      I remember the roller coaster of rejection letters and next interview calls during my last job search. Learn, and move on is a lot happier!

    Ha ha ha! I remember doing this with my dad! The lessons we learn from our children are just as important as the lessons we try to teach them…. if only we adults would see this more often. I love this… and the picture, too, says a thousand words!
    Fantastic article!!!!
