Play your own turf

There was a say ” Babies are born genius, but the parent spent the first 5 years of the child’s life degeniusing them“.. I cant say that i am not agree with this statement. Some of us, the parent, terlalu jumud dan tidak berfikir di luar kotak dan hanya mengikut acuan yang dibentuk oleh ibu-bapa kita dari kecil. Tidaklah bermaksud acuan tersebut salah, tapi sebagai generasi yang banyak terdedah dengan ilmu parenting, tak kiralah dari barat atau timur, Islam atau tidak, sepatutnya, cara didikan dan apa yang diimplan ke dalam minda anak-anak kita lebih baik dari dahulu.

Jika dahulu, kita diajar untuk mengikut kata ibu-bapa dan dianggap derkaha jika menentang, kita tidak boleh mengimplan perkara ini ke dalam minda anak-anak. We have to admit that the world is changing so rapidly. We can’t be too proud saying that we know everything. With the evolvemnet of  technology, its not surprising if our child become more brilliant each day. They might argue with us on certain thing we asked them. But, we can’t say that they are Derhaka..! We should take that as freedom of opinion based on the fact that been presented. When we allow our child to choose what they wanna be, we let them play at their own turf.

We can’t, however, simply let them choose without guidance. First and foremost, we should built the strongest foundation in their heart and mind. Implan dalam minda dan hati mereka mengenai konsep ketuhanan yang sejati. Ini lah asas yang terpenting. Apabila konsep beragama dan bertuhan ini kukuh, apa jua cabaran akan dapat di tackle dengan berkesan.

Biarkan anak-anak ini memilih padang mereka sendiri. Jangan diketawakan jika mereka gagal dikemudian hari. Di situlah peranan ibubapa untuk sentiasa membantu mereka berdiri kembali.

Kejayaan bagi setiap insan berbeza definasinya. Mungkin dengan berjawatan tinggi, berkereta mewah dan berumah besar adalah definasi kejayaan bagi Si A, tapi tidak bagi si B.  There’s no One-size-fit-all definition for Success. We should stop looking at others and focus on what we want most in life. In order to focus, however, we need to have clear vision on what we want first. After we already have that goal, now we move toward it, and focus to achieve it and play it at our own turf. That way, we’ll be more comfortable and know what we are doing. There’s no need to tell and convince others just as long you know what you are doing.
So, come on guys, create and play your own turf!.
