10X Parents Illustration

The world is rapidly changing, and — as 10X parents — what you’re teaching your kids should be too.  

I’m reaching out today with a personal message to help.  

Because there’s no way our kids are going to learn the vital skills they need to be successful in this world in a classroom.  You can bet on that.  So it’s up to YOU to be a 10X parent.  

That means you don’t want to blindly teach your kids old ideas without thinking more deeply about them. 

Here are three examples of how you could be unknowingly hurting more than helping: 

1. Eat everything on your plate.

When kids feel like they have to eat everything on their plate, it leads to a scarcity mindset.  This is the pervasive feeling of not having enough — whether that be time, money, or connection.  Scarcity is the opposite of abundance.   

And people who grow up with this mindset often complain and make excuses for not achieving their goals. 

2. Don’t talk to strangers.

Other than the obvious safety issue, we need to rethink this approach.  This old idea could encourage introversion and shyness.  The truth is you need to talk to strangers, especially when they have something you want.  

When my daughter was 7 years old before we could afford the jet, we were on a plane and she wanted a cookie. I told her I didn’t have one and that she could ask around. So she went up and down the aisle asking people for a cookie until she got what she wanted. 

3. Be patient.  

We all need to move with more urgency in life.  And this means teaching your kids to have a hunger for getting what they want as fast as possible. Moving with urgency allows them to develop their true potential.  

And moving with urgency will always put them ahead.  Because most people in this world are not operating with any sense of speed or urgency toward goals. So the faster your kids learn to move in life the better they’ll be. Let the masses move slowly at normal levels of action. Because normal is average, and average leads to nothing. 

Here are a few more ideas that 10X parents need to watch out for:

  • Play it safe
  • Don’t talk about money
  • Don’t speak unless spoken to
  • Fly under the radar
  • It’ll all work out

All of these old ideas could potentially do much more harm than good.  

So I urge you to think about these things before you unknowingly teach your kids the wrong way to attack life, no matter how old they are.  

I firmly believe you should teach your kids about money right NOW.

I bet most of you wish you knew more about the money game earlier in life. It might have saved you from making some big mistakes. 

This is true for me.  The reason I am teaching my kids about money today comes from a very personal place. 

When my father died, my mother felt the need to save every penny she could.  There was the constant fear we would run out of the life insurance money my father had left behind.  

If only I knew then what I know now.  Knowledge of how money works could have saved my family so much hardship. 

That’s why I refuse to push the same old ideas.  

So, if you’re ready to get the conversation started to teach your kids about money, here are some things to go over… 

The first thing to know is money won’t make them happy.

So teaching them money is meant to be traded for things they need – and that is the reason earning money should be a priority. 

My daughters understand money is just paper and its worth is based on the value we decide to give it.  They also understand its value goes up and down based on what is going on in the world.

That brings me to the next idea to teach your children about money…

There are two ways to collect money.  1.  Trade it for time with a traditional job where you work set hours.  2.  Trade it for assets that collect passive income.  

I prefer the second option because the hard assets, like real estate, will appreciate and generate cash flow at the same time.   

But at the end of the day, you need to deeply understand and believe in these principles before you try to teach them to your kids.  They’ll know if you don’t!   

And I know it can often be difficult to change beliefs and principles ingrained in us since birth.   But it’s critical for your children’s future. 

The best way for you to get started with a new frame of mind is to attend my 10X Growth Conference in Las Vegas.  It’s one of the most powerful events in the world.

Keeping it real,
