“My Kids Would Kill Me!”

…now that was a comment I got yesterday when I advised people to record their knowledge, tips, and life experience on camera.

It’s been a while since I heard that comment, and in Ireland, you hear that a lot.

‘Oh, they’d kill me if I did that.’

‘People would think I’ve got notions of myself.’

‘Mammy would freak out if I did that.’

‘There’s no way they’d let me do that.’

Those last two remarks weren’t from kids, but grown adults…or so-called grown-up adults.

They probably won’t become adults until their parents die and then they’re in control of their life.

But by then, it’ll probably be too late. – All the energy, ideas, and drive will be in the dust.

Do you know the benefit of living your life according to your kids, or parents?



And you know what happens?

You resent that person for the rest of your life.

Because they held you back.

That they made you stay small.

And you’ll hate them for it.

You might be all smiles on the outside, but on the inside, that splinter will always be there.

The advice I gave that lady, make the videos, especially if your kids are going to kill you.

It’s not their life, it’s yours.

And the same goes for you.

It’s YOUR life to live.

Make it a good one.
