10 Things Kenyan Parents should tell their sons and daughters

#1 You deserve nothing that you don’t deserve

“You don’t deserve s**t. Being alive doesn’t entitle you to anything. Breathing air doesn’t make you special or important. You’re just a piece of flesh and bone just like everybody else. Thinking otherwise would be incredibly arrogant.”

~ Nate Schmidt‏ @schm7dt

#2 Learn to be a beginner

“The road to mastery is only traveled by those who can tolerate being a beginner. Knowledge begins with the acknowledgment of ignorance. Modern people may have to learn and discard many skills throughout their lives. Those who can embrace being a beginner will thrive.”

~ The Stoic Emperor @TheStoicEmperor

#3 Your opinion is yours alone.

“You’re entitled to your opinion, but people aren’t obligated to: Listen to it, care about it or agree with it. In real life, people are often guilty of forgetting the first two.”

~ Ed Latimore @EdLatimore

#4 Be different from the masses

“Friday – Sunday is where you separate from the crowd. It’s crowed at the bottom. The clubs are packed, you can’t walk around. The bars are full, you can’t order a drink. The same people from last week will be there. Do something this weekend that you’ll be grateful for on Monday”

~ Chris Johnson ‏ @Nappyb0yy 

#5 Think independently

“There’s a lot of money in keeping you basic, fat, and broke. Netflix–the $152B company–says its greatest competitor is sleep. The last thing the pharmaceutical, sports, entertainment, and fast food industry want you to do is to get mentally, physically, and emotionally fit.”

~ Ed Latimore @EdLatimore

#6  You don’t owe them an explanation

“Stop explaining yourself to people who aren’t listening to a word that you’re saying. These people are just planning their comeback.”

~ ArmaniTalks @ArmaniTalks

#7 Don’t waste your precious time

“Chances are, you have time, but you’re just wasting it.”

~ LifeMathMoney @LifeMathMoney

#8 Chose from whom you seek advice

“If someone doesn’t already have what you want, or your failure does not affect them in any way. Don’t ask them for advice.”

~ Matt Stephens @Matt_S_Stephens

#9 Teachers Vs Mentors

“Teachers are for school and Mentors for the real world.”

~ ArmaniTalks @ArmaniTalks

#10 Break away from your fears

“Your fears are a kind of prison that confines you within a limited range of action. The less you fear, the more power you will have and the more fully you will live.”

~ The 50th Law @50thLawtweets
