The Concept of Aspiration
 is not so much of a lesson taught...
but of a passion realized.

To have a want to be like...
to have a burning desire to become...
to have ignited the flame of passion for a dream is
to have visualized one's future as one wishes to live it.


To truly Aspire to achieve
gives one the energy of the gods...
to be willing to bear any burden...
to have a hunger for any challenges
that would further one's self in one's goal.


To look forward and to dream of great things
gives great energy...
great energy leads to great effort...
great effort leads to great repetition...
great repetition leads to excellence.

Once a child has a taste of excellence...
of having overcome a once unachievable objective...
he realizes not only the possibility of doing it again...
he will have acquired the taste of victory.

That sweetness is never forgotten.

Once acquired...
 it is forever in the child's mind.

When through great initial effort
the child achieves...
and the passion is lit...
the child will then be chasing his dreams...
effort becomes effortless...
the necessary repetition is sought after
as it then becomes a joy.

With each practice
bringing the child one step closer
to the realization of his dream...
each step forward leads
to great excitement...
 to broader horizons.

Just the journey itself...
the process...
brings great pleasure.

Any great pleasure in life
is not only sought after and repeated...
it leads to great happiness...
from beginning to fruition.

It will have then become an inner drive.

This is the state of being that
we, as parents, wish to engender
in our children.

The cultivation of Aspiration...
is as simple as giving examples
of great achievements
by great persons in history...
or of great fictional characters.

As young children are yet unscribed books...
their chapters yet to be written
by their applied intelligence
and guided efforts...
their possibilities
are, as of yet...
unlimited.


Give them the desire to achieve greatness...
instil the drive to wish to be great...
by showing, through epic sagas...
in prose or film...
the great Aspirations...
of great persons.

To get them used to the idea of what greatness means...
of what each great person did to achieve his goals...
the common theme will make itself apparent.

They will see herculean efforts...
selfless dedication and commitment...
willing sacrifice of short term pleasures
in exchange for long term gains.

They will see the...
great happiness of those
who had led a life of great passion...

the deep satisfaction of those
who lived a life of purpose...

the great honor of those
who have helped others
through their great efforts...
their new way of thinking...
their innovations and inventions.

Get your children to dream of great deeds possible...
the path to greatness and the common path
by which it is achieved.


That is to teach them Aspiration.

In my next article...

I shall go into an efficient and effective
means of exploring the feasibility
and the realization of dreams.

It is a method used by the military
to achieve its objectives.

It is the use of Reverse Planning.
