A lot of parents ask themselves — and they ask us, too — am I smart enough to educate my kids? You want to help them get their own great education (because in reality none of us can educate another person — education is always individual, it’s always personal. Our children have to choose to get an education for themselves).
But are you smart enough to help them — are you qualified to help your kids get a phenomenal education?
It’s a big job. We have to help prepare ourselves and our children for an ever changing future. We live in such an exciting time in the world’s history.
Things are changing so rapidly. Literally, in five years from now, ten years from now, there are going be things we will be using constantly that don’t even exist yet!. It’s just amazing. There are going to be jobs and careers and businesses and professions and all these great things built around technology that doesn’t even exist yet. How long will it be before we will look back and be say, “Man, I can’t believe we used to use the internet. It was so slow!” or “I can’t believe we used mobile phones.” Who knows what kind of inventions are coming. Are you smart enough to help prepare your child for a future like that?
The truth of the answer is, most likely – NO.
You’re not smart enough, nor am I. Right? You might be thinking, “Oh no! Now what? I’m not smart enough.” But hope is not lost! 😉 Here’s why.
Albert Grey wrote a phenomenal essay called The Common Denominator of Success (and I highly recommend you read that).
InThe Common Denominator of Success he said that the one difference between successful people and unsuccessful people is that successful are willing to do the things that unsuccessful people are not willing to do. That’s it. That’s the difference. They are willing to do what it takes.
And so when we come back to the question “Am I smart enough?” we have to honestly answer “No”.
But here is the dividing line between homeschool success or failure — are you willing to do what it takes to get there?
Oh that’s exciting. Right? Isn’t that wonderful? That means you don’t have to know all the answers, but just know how to find the answers. You can teach your children how to think, how to find answers. That’s the most valuable thing you can give them for the future.
You can also get the great education you never got, and doing so you then help them gain their own phenomenal world class education (by setting an example and leading the way). And you can do that. And as you start learning and growing together, you can take it to the next level.
If you’ve watched our Intro to Parent Mentor Training, you’ll remember that we talked about the three levels of education.
- Conveyor Belt Education
- Professional Education
- and then there is Leadership Education.
That’s the one you want to go for. We want our children to be leaders. We want them to be out thinking and leading. We want them to be entrepreneurs and go getters making a positive impact in the world.
My wife and I are so excited about this — so passionate about this! We’ve been reading and studying in this field for over twenty years, and it’s why we’ve created WorldSchool Academy.
We have courses here for parents to help them get prepared and ready to help their kids to get a world class education that prepares them for the (uncertain) future.
Whether it is home schooling or un-schooling or world schooling or private schooling (or whatever else it’s called, all those fancy words out there) we’ve created the resources you need to help your kids get a great education. Start today with your first free course!
