Hey Mama. This is Mama’s Daily Dose. I’m Meghan Q Barrett of allyoumama.com Mama’s Daily Dose is… a quote from Michael Jordan, “My mother’s my root, my foundation, she planted the seed that I base my life on. And that is the belief that the ability to achieve starts in your mind.” Let’s get moving, before we get interrupted.
Wow, there are honestly so many great parts to this quote. And the part I want to start with is that Michael Jordan said his mother is his root. And that’s how most kids view their moms. Like, we have this crazy important role that honestly, no matter what we do, or how much we F up, our kids are still looking up to us. So, we not only owe it to them, but we owe it to ourselves, to be this great example, and to teach them to be amazing humans.
The second part is what Dolores Jordan instilled in Michael. And what I believe to be the most important lesson to instill in my children is that your ability to achieve starts in your mind, you have to believe in yourself in order to achieve anything, if you don’t truly believe that you can do it, you’re not going to figure out a way to do it.
And I know we’ve talked about this before that you don’t have to know how you’re going to do it. You just have to know that you can do it and you have the capabilities to do it.
So, if I instill nothing else in my children, other than swear words and some sports knowledge, I want them to know that they can achieve anything that they believe they can. And they are capable of anything. And that that belief in themselves is what’s going to carry them through life and what’s going to make them happy and successful.
