At some point in our childhood, we have had some negative incidents happen to us that have caused us to be self-limiting. These become tapes playing in our heads so often that we don't even notice what they say anymore but they effect every decision we make. Here is an example of changing the loops:

Historically, the act of apprenticeship began when a person reached somewhere between the ages of 10 and 15. However, that practice changed rapidly with the inclusion of child labor laws and free education for children -- both great movements but both came at the cost of the influence of experiencing a one-on-one mentor; someone to influence the success of a person in their adolescent years. The following is a guide to finding the proper mentor for an individual student.

Success starts with looking at the strengths and challenges in our daily life. Through these challenges, we can understand the patterns that we keep repeating and the self-limiting tapes running in our sub-conscious. Our strengths can inspire us to rise over these repeating patterns and tapes, leading us to a richer life. I invite you to try these exercises for a happier, fulfilling life.

There is a group of roughly 20 per cent of our youth who are doing great in school, in relationships and in their lifestyles but for the majority of the young people today, self-sabotage is the daily practice. What are the stumbling blocks that have some many young people today choosing to derail everything that they are given instead of testing their mettle and what are the remedies?

If you are a parent today in the western world, you have joined a very special club. A club of parents cast adrift, drowning in self-doubt while dodging waves of pyscho-babble lurching at them from every direction. It's easy to throw blame around but what is the main question we all want the answer to? "How do I help my child unfold to be their very best in today's world?"

Just imagine... A happy, successful, life where playtime is as fulfilling as work-time. Relationships become opportunities for joy, sharing and lots of close, meaningful contact that is mutually satisfying. But seriously, we're talking about a full life for teens and young adults. Let's face it, the teenage years are not easy and they're not drama-free. Basically a lot about them suck.

So, summer is coming quickly and as a parent that means one thing: your kids are about to veg out for two months playing video games, staying up late and becoming the "unwanted house-guest from hell." How do you turn that situation into one that will have a profound effect on their future employability?

How many people are lucky enough to have had not just one great dad, but two? I was! One for my first 16 years, Harry, my birth Father. Another, Stanley, my wife's dad then became mine for the last six years of his life. Your child wants nothing more than to feel appreciated and trusted to rise above the mistakes and be successful. This is what I see everyday in the dads around me.

How do we inspire our children in such an ever changing, unknown world? Simply put, by sharing our passions with them. I have seen first hand that the chances we take, the times we challenge ourselves and the things we incorporate into our lives, that make our lives richer as much as having kids, are our greatest weapons against an unknown future.

Almost everyone you know is addicted to something. Whether their addiction is coffee, jogging, or something less socially acceptable, addictions are a way of life for many people. So, how do you take these passions and make them become something generative; something that improves your quality of life?

The truth is we are all superheroes waiting to discover the special gift we were given to make our mark in the world. For some reason, what we start off with is often the exact opposite of our superpower. These opposites are our own form of Kryptonite. We have to rise above our Kryptonite.

You can tell where you are in your life by how you celebrate Mother's Day. The place where my brother, my sister and I are, every Mother's Day has a different type of sadness. If you're still lucky enough to have your mom with you, I'd like to share with you what I know now, and wish I had known much earlier in my life.

You've received your mid-term marks, and some of them just squeaked by. You have two choices: continue to see your school future flushing down the proverbial toilet, or make a new plan. Let's try Plan B, shall we? Here is how to build a last-ditch effort to save your exams and create better possibilities for the future.

Well, there is the unpleasant memory of the last time you went out into the "real world" and it didn't "work". If "work" was the bag you had used to pick up crud, your experience would be the stuff that's stays on the ground where the crud was. (Not a good place unless you are a crud-worm).

If children learn healthy limitations, they appreciate what they do get that much more. Sometimes creating something instead of getting something is the best gift of all. They learn to be self-limiting, yet open to infinite creative possibilities.

We must first leave our father's house, leave all the things we know, leave our land, and go out towards an unknown adventure that promises us untold abundance if we keep faith in ourselves, and keep our wits about us.
