In my recent book, Thrive Principles, I provide 15 strategies for living a thriving life. In that book, I note that this does not mean an absence of struggle and tough times. I suggest, instead, that these tough times are the fuel for thriving. They are the times we build our thriving muscles — IF we understand how to thrive.
This is a great list of strategies to teach children and young people. Imagine entering adulthood with those strategies and skills at the ready. Imagine that when the tougher times come, young adults already know how to move through them — and thrive!
I’ve noticed that many people never learn to thrive. And many learn to thrive only when they are at a tough point. Then, when nothing is working, they finally have to find a way to thrive — in the midst of struggle!
Wouldn’t it be easier to master those skills along the way, when we are just trying to figure out the skills of life, anyway? What if we just learned the helpful skills — not the unhelpful coping strategies that usually cause more struggle down the road?
