“If you keep pedaling, I’ll keep pushing you forward, always and forever” – Brian Cimins
My 5-year-old son, Logan is starting to go on some serious bike rides including aggressive hill climbs which sometimes require my assistance. Most of the time, I’m barely pushing, sometimes he really needs me – but as long as he doesn’t give up, I keep pushing. Neighbors probably think I’m a crazy Dad, because I’m making him scream things like, “I know I can” and “I believe in myself” but I could care less. I’m helping open up the limitless possibilities within his mind over body to help him achieve real self confidence through personal achievement. I wanted to become the best coach in the world, just like every Dad can be in a Son or Daughter’s life. It’s our job to get it right, so we can set the example for our children.
Until next time, remember to be truly present with your child when spending time with them – no matter how much time you can spend, be there mentally and physically the whole time. Clear your thoughts, put away your phone, laptop and iPad, turn off the television and just be there 100% for them. If you are going to “submit” to something in life, let it be LOVE and release the racing thoughts of every day life for your own peace of mind and to be the best parent you can be.
