Start With I

Welcome to Episode #25 of The Parenting Biz Podcast - coming to you every single Monday. Now let's chat with this week's featured Guest, Melissa Wiringi.   This week, our entire interview will be acquired around the video game, Mario Kart.   So put on your wheel strap (if playing on Wii), choose your player and let’s start today’s game called “Start With I”. Summary of today’s video game:   Contenders - you can play solo against the computer OR up to 8 players with friends & family How lonely and scary you feel being in an abusive relationship Getting out of an abusive relationship may take different time to different people Taking ownership of your own life and have the braveness to move over that fear once you are ready Getting professional help can definitely lead you into a way of self-improvement Sharing with the others can help you to accept your own situation   Choosing Your Character - life is all about choice… in Mario Kart there are 14 unlockable characters to choose from “Art of Happiness” by Dalai Lama – choosing what we think does impact on how we feel Happiness is about being appreciative of your life Taking small steps – how a gratitude journal, a daily affirmation routine and writing have changed Melissa’s life for the better Being open minded and trying all things that may make you possibly happy Being happy is an ongoing lifelong commitment and not an overnight process Happiness must start with yourself. How would you make people around you happy if you are not happy yourself? Self-worth is the key when you are choosing your own character. Without valuing yourself, how is anyone else going to value you?   Starting Line - We all start at the same place - but there are a few key indicators that may enhance our chances of winning... Knowing yourself and your “why” Steve Jobs and Bill Gates success Multipotentialite concept and its roots   Attitude -  we all know playing video games can bring out our true colours... Anger doesn’t serve you any positive purpose As long you don’t let it control you, it’s ok to be angry at times Fight. Forgive. Reconcile Happiness - bad things may happen, but you let it pass like a cloud in the sky If you want your kids to be happy, you have to be happy Learning not to blame yourself when you get angry/sad/frustrated Fights and arguments in front of the kids   *Final message from today’s video game: Integration and patience – we cannot control everything   Want to contact the guest?
