If there is any gift you would like to give your child this holiday season, I recommend inner strength. Almost anything else you can buy helps with outer control. However, Inner strength does it all.
This is the best part! Monday Morning Coffee is all about developing it. The first 30 tips on belief in oneself (starting with the last page first) and the next 30 on inner peace are all still available on-line (continuing from back to front). Now here is the “great news!” The next 30 tips to follow will be about learning.
Believing in yourself combined with inner peace and learning are exactly what your child needs to have a “sound mind.”
“Mens sana in corpore sano.”
— Thales, pre-Socratic philosopher Greek philosopher
“A sound mind in a sound body is a short but full description of a happy state in the world.”
— John Locke, Some Thoughts on Education I
