Roller pigeons climb high and fast,
Then roll over and fall just as fast towards the earth.
This example was given by me to my son who I felt was digressing from the original plan of completing his masters in Bussiness administration and making his career steady and rock solid.
He belongs to the generation of teenagers who are like a car with a great accelerator but terrible brakes.With powerful impulses under poor control the likely result is a crash.
Anyone can be a good parent under normal circumstances,but handling a child being difficult with his unreasonable choices …well that’s a great parent and I was about to be just that..😀
So to crush his plans of making quick money and getting independent doing any business without demoralizing him was a Herculean Task but being a Mother you just can’t ignore any possible risk your child may face due to his misconceptions about life.
So I sat him down and bestowed upon him my jewels of wisdom..😊
That which grows fast withers rapidly,
That which grows slow endures..
It is so easy to get lured into the glittering world of deceit and immorality.The prospect of making quick money and getting quick success can entice the young impressionable minds to resort to dishonest and fraudulent means.
Slow success builds character
Fast success builds Ego.
If you are progressing slowly but working diligently and consistently,the progress maybe slow,but it will be better than working hard for sometime and not continuing for long.
There is no shortcut to success.
There is no elevator to success. You have to take the stairs.
You may walk slow,but never backwards. Coz direction is more important than the speed.
My son hugged me and assured me he will never let me down.
But I am a jittery and nervous mother and telling a mother not to worry about her children is like expecting water not to get wet.
