A WONDERFUL EXPERIMENT

THE BEAUTY OF SHARING

This weekend, I decided to perform an exercise that I picked up from the wonderful Zig Ziglar.  This exercise consists of; writing down on a piece of paper, the aspects that you like the most about a person of your choice and then giving that person the piece of paper.  I chose to do this with my wonderful son Theodore and here are the results:

I suggested to Theodore that we would play a game.  As we were sitting at a table, I asked him to write down five aspects about me that he likes the most and I would do the same about him.  Once completed, we read each others list out load.  When I saw how much he liked the exercise, I asked him to write down a further five and of course, I would do the same.  Here is what he wrote about me:

1 - YOU'RE NICE

2 - YOU'RE SMART

3 - YOU'RE LOVING

4 - YOU ARE THE BEST LIVING THING

5 - YOU ALWAYS HAVE GOOD TIPS

6 - YOU CAN ALWAYS CHEER ME UP

7 - YOU TELL GOOD STORIES

8 - YOU'RE GENEROUS

9 - YOU MAKE ME HAPPY

10 - YOU ARE THE BEST DAD EVER

Here is what I wrote about him:

1 - PURE HEART (GODLY)

2 - KIND

3 - LOVING

4 - THOUGHTFUL

5 - GENEROUS

6 - CREATIVE

7 - GREAT MEMORY

8 - AMBITIOUS

9 - LOYAL

10 - CLEVER

Afterwards, I asked Theodore to keep the piece of paper with him at all times and to refer to it as many times as he could throughout the day, everyday.  I said to him that if he does that, he will make all of his dreams a reality.

Before performing the exercise, I was not at all sure whether he would like it, but after seeing his reaction, I am very pleased that I followed the advice of the inspirational Zig Ziglar.

The words that my wonderful son Theodore wrote down about me, I will treasure for the rest of my life.  I feel so blessed to have been given the opportunity to be the father of such an incredible human being.  For this, I give thanks and praise to Almighty God throughout the day, everyday.

BELIEVE IN YOURSELF, THINK BIG, AND FOLLOW YOUR HEART
