My two year old daughter has always loved to play on the beams. As she continued to grow and become more confident with her balancing skills, she started enjoying them. But what really struck me was the way she challenged herself to explore different ways to go higher and higher.
It dawned on me suddenly that while kids around the world are challenging themselves to outperform each day, we are busy getting cozy by building a cocoon (called security) around us missing out on the most important aspect of life – joy.
Everytime Riya tried a dangerous (from a father’s point of view) move, she fell straight on her bum (thankfully). She got up, giggled, dusted her pants and started again trying the same move until she mastered it. Wishing this attitude to everyone in the world.
Side Note: Entrepreneurs who are parents, put a tab on your kids who will, time and again, impart many more such lessons.
