So the year is already in full swing. Most of the schools and varsities have already started, businesses have re-opened and hopefully that means the mind is ready to soak up all the information and use that knowledge for a successful new year loaded with new potential and achievements to make the best year ahead for you.
Fortunately for us, our children couldn’t wait to get back to school. To be honest, I wasn’t ready and I could have quite easily enjoyed more holiday time – and I doubt I am the only one who secretly felt this way! I shed the quiet tears and did my best to encourage the kids for an exciting year ahead! However, we can not stop time, turn back time or delay time in any way, so reluctantly I waved my kids good bye on their first day of school, shed a few more tears as I got into the car and felt rather sorry for myself! I don’t know what saddened me more, the reality that they are growing up way too fast and were delighted to see their friends, or the thought of all that homework, routine and studying we have to do all over again!
But besides all that, the new year has started and each day is an achievement all on its own, and we are positive for an amazing year.
The other morning I saw a friend’s post on her Face Book wall. I loved reading it and found that her words echoed my own feelings.
I would like to share it with you and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I did.

…These words “Breeding success” gripped me. In other words the meaning of breeding success is ‘The intent to reproduce, duplicate and perpetuate a lineage’…
“Success – The achievement of something desired, planned or attempted”.
What I realised by this catchty phrase is that we can have this same motto for our lives and the lives of our children. We literally can “breed success” into them and in turn invest into our children’s children by our encouragement, attitude and outlook of life.
On the flip side, we can detrimentally do the complete opposite.
In a day of self-doubt, indecision, and brokenness – the perception we have of ourselves is paramount if we want to hand a worthy baton unto our children. This is where it starts – WITH US. This liberating concept does not necessarily have to rest on what we have achieved and accomplished for our self, but it can start today and change our children’s lives in so many ways for the future.
This post is not only for the school goers and parents, it is for everything we do in life, every hurdle we face, every trial we endure, every achievement we reach. A positive outlook is the answer to true success. We ourselves are the breeders for a good or bad attitude, a successful or failing lifestyle, a happy or saddened marriage, relationships, a thriving or dying career – we breed our own success, and in turn we are able to do the opposite and breed havoc upon ourselves.
May this year be a new challenge for you. Last year is over and 2016 is here in full bloom… So what are you waiting for? It is time to BREED SUCCESS for YOU, your family and YOUR CHILDREN, from today onwards.
And to all our children who are being educated, I wish you all the very best with your studies. Remember, it is not always about your teacher, the school, your friends or the area you live – it is about you wanting an education, do your best every day and the rewards will be great one day. Nothing will ever come easy, but with hard work and determination you will always be better today than you were yesterday! Enjoy your learning, it will never be wasted.
Love and God Bless,
