Growing up, you probably had a bunch of things you always heard your parents say when they were giving you advice, or teaching you how to do something. In this episode of the Motivational Intelligence Podcast, John Casey shares with us 18 of his family mottos, and there is something to be learned from each of them.
John discusses the fact that every family has a culture, aka, shared dominant beliefs. Below are all 18 of his family mottos- take a look and feel free to use them in your daily life!
#1: We have unlimited potential to grow and learn, and we access it through goal setting and practice.
#2 We never give up, because there is always another way to try.
#3 Mistakes are okay, that’s how we, learn and we don’t repeat them.
#4 No one can ruin our day without our permission, and we don’t have to give it to them.
#5 We never lose- every day, we win or learn
#6 Having butterflies is a good thing- it means we’re about to grow!
#7 We have fun and laugh a lot!
#8 Nobody can tell us who we can or can’t be, or what we can/can’t do, unless they care about us and will be supportive
#9 When learning too soon and too often is better than too late and not enough
#10 When things or people go wrong, we don’t have to go with them
#11 We finish what we start, and we try for maximums, not minimums
#12 We give no complaints without suggestions
#13 We all have the power to make people (including ourselves) feel good or bad
#14 We keep our word, even when its hard
#15 To whom much is given, much is expected- we make each day count!
#16 If the answer is yes to the question, is it the right thing to do? If so, then we do it!
#17 Since takers lose, and givers win, we give, we are kind!
#18 Since life is 10% what happens and 90% how we react, we think before we react
