Success has no age minimum

Young people have an advantage over adults in that they don’t believe in distant gratification — they want to be happy now.

Success has no age minimum

by Geffen Liberman — 

The newest frontier of self-improvement is upon us. From “The Secret” to life coaching and everything in between, it is apparent that the pursuit of bettering your life through more positive thoughts and feelings is in full force. But what about young people? For some reason, we as a society tend not to put enough emphasis on these ideas when it comes to our nation’s biggest asset — our youth.

Young people are just as capable, if not more capable, than adults at grasping and developing the skills necessary to attract and shape a life they desire. But many adults think that young people are not interested in learning about personal responsibility, the law of attraction, manifestation, visualization, meditation or other such viable tools. And yet, I hear adolescents all the time say that they want to learn how to use the principles of greater awareness now to begin achieving and striving for the life they deserve.

Young people have an advantage over adults in that they don’t believe in distant gratification — they want to be happy now. And doesn’t the law of attraction teach us how foolish our old-fashioned belief is that we must toil away for years before we can achieve success? The fact is that the young are perfect candidates to learn this material, as they have not been brainwashed by unmotivated and captive thought processes like many of their elders have.

All they need is for people to be willing to show them the way. Imagine a world in which every child grew up always believing that they could create a perfect world for themselves and others. What a vision that is. I believe that with a little help from those of us who are aware of these life-changing principles, our young people can have just that life.

Always remember that success has no age minimum or limits.
