CHOICE-FULLNESS – The AWARENESS, ABILITY, and CONTROL necessary to make wise, thoughtful and self-directed choices…choices that enrich us, enhance our well-being, and move us toward REAL happiness, success and fulfillment.
We’d like to ask you a question. What do you think your children’s future will look like?
Given the ever-increasing power of tech, media and consumerism, you can be certain of one thing…your children will face an overwhelming amount of NOISE in their future – Distraction, Distortion, Disruption and Overload. Will they be prepared for it?
And by “prepared”, we mean, will they have the AWARENESS, ABILITY and CONTROL necessary to cope with the Noise and make wise, thoughtful and self-directed choices…choices that enrich them, enhance their well-being, and move them toward REAL happiness, success and fulfillment.
Unfortunately, the answer is likely to be no…unless we do something to help our children now…because the growing Noise in our culture is rapidly training our children to throw away their time and attention, to give up their critical thinking, and to relinquish their individual control. In fact, much of the Noise directed at them from tech, media and consumerism is designed to target their psychological vulnerabilities (for profit) and addict them to their devices…disrupting their brain development and re-wiring their brains to need more and more Noise. And even more troubling, Noise is causing our children to lose sight of who they really are and who they can become…making them dependent upon superficial measures (likes, follows, status, etc.) to provide them with self-esteem and validate their self-identity. One can only imagine the negative impact of such dependency on their future relationships and their potential for lasting happiness and fulfillment. Is it any wonder that many of our children feel unprepared for their future…and suffer from increasing stress, anxiety, depression, sleep problems, and more?
And the scary part is…Noise is just starting to accelerate. So we need to act now. We need to learn how to:
· First – help our children develop the power to PROTECT THEMSELVES from the damaging effects of the Noise.
· Second – help them develop the AWARENESS, ABILITY and CONTROL to reach their potential and become their own unique, authentic, empowered selves.
That’s what developing CHOICE-FULLNESS is all about…and it’s what these podcasts are all about.
