FOCUS ON RELATIONSHIPS - NOT ACHIEVEMENTS

Posted on April 29, 2017 at 10:06 PM

FOCUS ON RELATIONSHIPS – NOT ACHIEVEMENTS
By
Linda M. Penn
 
 
            It’s graduation season this month – Kindergarten, 5 Grade, 8 Grade, Middle School, High School – that time for parents and grandparents to brag about their kids’ achievements!  WHAT?  BRAG?  WHO, ME? BRAG?
 
            If your kids are graduating and moving on to a new challenge for next year, avoid the gloating over their achievements.  Most people favor modesty and humility, so please, minimize the boasting, and just sticking to the facts and expressing gratitude.  Example:  “Yes, Susie Q has been accepted at -------Academy.  I’m thankful for all the people who have helped her along the way.”
 
            Last year, I was fortunate to attend an event where Peyton Manning was the guest speaker.  When asked about his award-winning career, instead of boasting of his numerous football records, he spoke of the many relationships he was able to make and maintain.  His advice to the young people in the audience was to be proud of your school work accomplishments but be more proud of the quality relationships that you make, not just for today, but for your lifetime. 
 
            So, for all of us as we go through graduations and awards ceremonies, let’s prepare ourselves and our kiddos to utter wholesome comments after picking up that diploma or award.  And, please – no belittling others!
 
            I searched “Bragging About Accomplishments” and several websites popped up, most of which related ideas on handling business successes, but could definitely be modified for school successes.  Therefore…take a look at the sites, be happy, be grateful, be sensitive and cautious about your comments!
 
            COME BACK THE FIRST WEEK OF JUNE – “SOMEONE NEEDS YOU – VOLUNTEER!”

We can find nice personalities in our life which suggest us very well. People must be focus on relationship not achievements because relations are important for people. They can get help from them and can get support also to spend happy life.
