Listen, son: I am saying this as you lie asleep, one little paw crumpled under your cheek and the blond curls stickily wet on your damp forehead. I have stolen into your room alone. Just a few minutes ago, as I sat reading my paper in the library, a stifling wave of remorse swept over me. Guiltily I came to your bedside.
There are the things I was thinking, son: I had been cross to you. I scolded you as you were dressing for school because you gave your face merely a dab with a towel. I took you to task for not cleaning your shoes. I called out angrily when you threw some of your things on the floor.
At breakfast I found fault, too. You spilled things. You gulped down your food. You put your elbows on the table. You spread butter too thick on your bread. And as you started off to play and I made for my train, you turned and waved a hand and called, “Goodbye, Daddy!” and I frowned, and said in reply, “Hold your shoulders back!”
Then it began all over again in the late afternoon. As I came up the road I spied you, down on your knees, playing marbles. There were holes in your stockings. I humiliated you before your boyfriends by marching you ahead of me to the house. Stockings were expensive-and if you had to buy them you would be more careful! Imagine that, son, from a father!
youtube-father-forgetsDo you remember, later, when I was reading in the library, how you came in timidly, with a sort of hurt look in your eyes? When I glanced up over my paper, impatient at the interruption, you hesitated at the door. “What is it you want?” I snapped.
You said nothing, but ran across in one tempestuous plunge, and threw your arms around my neck and kissed me, and your small arms tightened with an affection that God had set blooming in your heart and which even neglect could not wither. And then you were gone, pattering up the stairs.
Well, son, it was shortly afterwards that my paper slipped from my hands and a terrible sickening fear came over me. What has habit been doing to me? The habit of finding fault, of reprimanding-this was my reward to you for being a boy. It was not that I did not love you; it was that I expected too much of youth. I was measuring you by the yardstick of my own years.
And there was so much that was good and fine and true in your character. The little heart of you was as big as the dawn itself over the wide hills. This was shown by your spontaneous impulse to rush in and kiss me good night. Nothing else matters tonight, son. I have come to your bedside in the darkness, and I have knelt there, ashamed!
It is feeble atonement; I know you would not understand these things if I told them to you during your waking hours. But tomorrow I will be a real daddy! I will chum with you, and suffer when you suffer, and laugh when you laugh. I will bite my tongue when impatient words come. I will keep saying as if it were a ritual: “He is nothing but a boy-a little boy!”
I am afraid I have visualized you as a man. Yet as I see you now, son, crumpled and weary in your cot, I see that you are still a baby. Yesterday you were in your mother’s arms, your head on her shoulder. I have asked too much, too much, yet given too little of myself. Promise me, as I teach you to have the manners of a man, that you will remind me how to have the loving spirit of a child.

Great Divorce Quote Image – Children should never be used as weapons of mass deception or destruction during divorce. Parents, please show them more LOVE than ever before to help start the necessary healing process by Brian Cimins

Children should never be used as weapons of mass deception or destruction during divorce. Parents, please show them more LOVE than ever before to help start the necessary healing process – Brian Cimins

Please add more quotes below…parents, please know your children are not chess pieces and there is no checkmate in divorce.

It must be a win-win and the children are confused, sad and heart broken enough already to have to deal with the pain and suffering of the two people they love most on this earth separating eternally.

Please focus on improving yourself, finding your center and helping others during this emotional draining process. There is light at the end of the tunnel and you can BOTH find happiness on the “other side”. Some parents quickly jump into relationships or extra marital because they are lonely before the divorce is even finalized, which can over complicate things even worse. Some parents take their frustrations out on their children physically and verbally which is also completely unacceptable. Love yourself and your babies more than ever and know things will get better soon, just hang in there and don’t cause any more pain and suffering than you’ve already caused.

REAL Love, peace and harmony – Namaste, Brian Cimins

MORE WAS NEVER ENOUGH Written by Brian Cimins (http://YourStrategyCoach.com)

I’m 86 years old and sadly I’m basically sitting on my death bed…
I have millions of dollars in the bank –
but I can’t BUY Health to Save My Life now.
I had a family and millions of fans around the world – but I’m all alone now…

Not even my children or long estranged wife or brother stand around my deathbed

I LIVED MY LIFE WRONG AND I DON’T WANT THIS TO HAPPEN TO YOU.
IF YOU LISTEN AND TAKE EVASIVE ACTION,
I CAN HELP YOU CHANGE YOUR FUTURE…

The following few moments may very well change your life…
and I wish someone had told me this when I was YOUR age….

Money is NOT EVIL by itself, its just paper with perceived value to obtain other things we value in other ways.

IF NOT MONEY – WHAT IS EVIL YOU MAY ASK?
Evil is the unquenchable, obsessive and moral bending desire for MORE.
EVIL is the bottomless, soulless and obsessive-compulsive pursuit of some pot of gold at the end of some rainbow which doesn’t exist

EVIL is having a PRICE tag for your HEART and SOUL in exchange for Financial Success at ANY cost.

EVIL is trying to BUY happiness, again and again, until all of those fake, short lived mirages of emotions are gone.

IMAGINE HAVING IT ALL — ONLY TO LOSE IT ALL…
YOU ARE NOW BROKE – all the money is gone, what do you have?
The only solution to your madness and happiness was acquiring MORE
Now you have NO MORE MEANS TO ACQUIRE FAKE HAPPINESS…

NO MORE MEANS TO ACQUIRE MORE
SO…WHO ARE YOU NOW?
Where are all the people NOW who you thought were your friends while the money was flowing in?
You might have lost your family, friends and mostly everyone in the world thinks you are a self centered, egotistical asshole.
Why? Because of YOUR endless pursuit for MORE clouded your mind and diverted you from your TRUE PURPOSE IN LIFE!

DOES THIS HIT AN EMOTIONAL CHORD IN YOU?

DID IT DEPRESS OR SADDEN YOU?

…I ALMOST SAID GOOD, but I say this ONLY because I want YOU TO CHANGE!!

I’m not saying you can’t be financially successful;
I’m SAYING HAVE A GREATER PURPOSE IN LIFE well beyond the Pursuit of Financial Success.

Your Soul is SCREAMING for you to answer your TRUE calling

You can CHANGE today if you redefine what SUCCESS is to you.
You can transform your damaged relationships and build new ones.
You can forgive yourself and others who’ve hurt you
you can become a leader by mentoring with others who you aspire to be like.
You can re-balance your priorities in life.
You can heal your marriage and recreate a stronger LOVE than you ever thought possible.

You can become the best parent possible at ANY age – even 86, but don’t WAIT until then…

You will always be able to make more money, BUT you CANNOT make more time.

One day, just like me, you will DIE too…
What do YOU want to be remembered for?
What can YOU do for others to make the world a better place?
What is YOUR true purpose on this Earth?

We are ALL dying – but only a small select few are truly LIVING.

You can step out of the Shadows into the LIGHT.
You were meant for GREATNESS
You were meant for MORE than just what you do for a living.
You are an eternal being meant to INSPIRE AND HELP THE WORLD!

——LET’S GET IT RIGHT ONCE AND FOR ALL IN THIS LIFETIME…

TODAY, YOU STEP INTO THE WORLD WHERE TRUE LOVE EXISTS
AND YOU FINALLY REALIZE THAT LOVE IN FACT, IS
“THE MORE” YOU’VE WANTED YOUR WHOLE LIFE

JUST LOVE MORE AND MORE,
EVERY DAY IN EVERY WAY
AND
NEVER GIVE UP,
regardless of how challenging your destiny and life will be…

The World really needs you now more than ever…
Together, with Love, Compassion and faith in HUMANITY, WE WILL DEFEAT EVIL, ONCE AND FOR ALL!

The Story of Luke Movie Preview – Opens April 5 – Amazing Film about Autism and Life by Brian Cimins and Paul Cimins of Autism Radio

1 in 88 children are diagnosed with Autism. All of the children and beautifully gifted in their own way, but because we are just starting to uncover the mysteries of Autism and Aspergers, we are realizing how very special and unique each child or adult with Autism is. Just like no child is the same, no child with Autism is the same. Some children do not speak, some are slightly introverted, some can’t be touched, some don’t like loud noise, and a million other unique potential differences that stand out on the Autism Spectrum.

There have been only a few movies that truly captured the true essence of Autism including the Temple Grandin movie on HBO back in 2010. The Story of Luke captures the innocence, the essence, the unfiltered love, the challenges, the family healing power of a child (or adult) with Autism, and the HOPE of love – “The Story of Luke” nailed it and is a must see for anyone affected by Autism. Quite simply stated, The Story of Luke is the best Autism movie ever made and everyone will enjoy it on multiple emotional levels including laughing out loud and crying uncontrollably, especially those who truly LOVE someone with Autism. Please watch this movie to gain a better understanding of Autism’s large spectrum and how one person’s experience with life is. It’ll grow your heart to better understand the family challenges and quality of life issues for 1 in 88 children in America.

Find out more information on the movie, which launches Worldwide on April 5, 2013 – get info here:

———————

I’ve had the pleasure of working closely with Paul Cimins of Autism Radio (http://AutismRadio.org) since inception of their amazing charity that helps families challenged with Autism every day.

Many people do not know that Paul Cimins’ 9-year-old son, Jonathan Cimins was diagnosed with Autism at 2-years-old after an adverse reaction to a Vaccine. He went from 50+ words to Zero words after a 105 degree temperature and hasn’t communicated since. Paul and his family were massively challenged back in 2003 without any available information, diet, alternative treatments, supplements or special services. Paul Cimins became The Autism Super Dad, a voice for his son and the millions affected within the Autism community seeking knowledge in an open minded non-political environment.

the host of the World’s First Autism Family Support Network and program “Hope Saves The Day” on iHeartRadio, iTunes and streaming 24/7 online at: http://AutismRadio.org

Seeing this movie gave me hope for my nephew Jonathan – because I imagine him speaking one day just like “Luke” with the heartfelt emotional learning curve that comes so naturally to most people, but not as natural with some children with Autism or Aspergers. See how “Luke” heals everyone he comes into contact with, the POWER of LOVE within a child with Autism is amazing. As parents and relatives and friends, we need to support the parents and child equally, because so many parents and children with Autism live in private despair, afraid to leave the house, and afraid to face the world. Awareness of the signs of Autism and showing extra kindness and patience or being a REAL friend to someone affected with Autism can become one of the most special experiences in life.

Keep shining your LIGHT, especially for those who need it the most.

PARENT and Child Inspiration - If you keep pedaling, I'll keep pushing you forward, always and forever - Brian Cimins

“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.

hope_saves_the_day_grappling_autism-1Thank you for your time – you are a great parent just for seeking out how improve your relationships with your children.

1 in 88 Children are diagnosed with Autism including my 9-year-old nephew, Jonathan Cimins – Please help families who desperately need services today at: http://AutismDonation.org

My most important role in my life is being a father, role model and leader to my two amazing children, Logan and Kaylee.

I started watching them for 15 hours a day from 7:45 AM until 10:00 PM every day. Initially it was very challenging, because I was breaking the work-at-home workaholic cycle on top of figuring out what to do to add value to their lives.

I needed to “Dad-up” and realize that I needed to not just be in the same room as the kids, but truly be PRESENT in the moment and become more lovingly interactive with them. I realized that pressing play on NetFlix and letting the kids play video games for hours while you type away on the laptop isn’t truly being present with them and they notice.

I missed so much of their life with Grapplers Quest and I decided that I wanted to become a Super Dad.

I remember seeing Jungle Gym founder, Justin Garcia giving some tips and showing fun projects from his amazing Home Schooling Program due out soon (http://MasterChim.com) and I was inspired to set out to fill my new found time with the kids with activities to engage their hearts, minds, soul and spirit.

We started doing arts and crafts, learning Spanish, comic book drawing, practicing nightly meditation, learning the solar system, playing board and card games, star gazing with telescope on clear nights, “Super Hero Training” which is basic exercises with leadership skills and several other Life Skills development programs and several other FUN activities we do together. I even reward their good behavior with Family Inclusive Video Games like Beatles Rock Band nearly every evening – I’ll write about that another blog…all in all, I’m trying to be the Best Dad I can be. I love recommendations for fun things to do – please reply with any ideas.

NOW TO THE PHOTO…
photo(2)
“It’s not coming off!” I exclaimed.

The Red Stained hands in the main picture belong to my beautiful 3-year-old daughter, Kaylee Paige Cimins who slammed down a “Do-A-Dot” marker, breaking the felt tip and causing Red Ink to flow out of the marker. She had been told several times to not slam them down, so when she broke it, she started crying and proceeded to wipe RED INK all over her face too while trying to wipe away tears. She ran into the bathroom where I was giving my son a bath nearly exactly how the picture shows, except she was screaming and crying.

First, I thought she was bleeding and freaked out….who wouldn’t, she was dripping fresh red ink from her hands and face. Once I realized what occurred and that the Red was just Do-A-Dot Marker stained, I tried to clean the ink off. First I tried to clean off her hands with Trader Joe’s Next to Godliness Hand Soap which didn’t remove any ink at all. Unfortunately, then I tried to clean her hands with Dr. Bronner’s Magic Soaps Tea Tree Oil which removed only 15-20% of the color stains. AHHHH!!! What will I do???

ENTER MY SOLUTION —- Super Body Care’s Walnut Scrub

photo(3)

My daughter started crying again after Dr. Bronner soap barely did anything – she asked, “Daddy, are my hands going to be red forever?”. I calmed her down and promised her I would get it out.

Finally, I grabbed Cheri Heberling’s Super Body Care Walnut Scrub and within seconds of calmly scrubbing, the color came off…completely. She loves the smell, so she allowed me to gently scrub her face (around her sensitive skin of her eyes) as well, because she had wiped her face while crying her eyes looked like a prize fighter. It easily removed her Do-A-Dot eye makeup too.

Thank you Super Body Care for helping me look like a Super Dad to Kaylee. Check out Super Body Care products at: http://SuperBodyCare.com or purchase the Walnut Scrub directly here: http://superbodycare.com/shop/#!/~/product/category=1870672&id=8057839

Daily Positive Affirmation for Kids and Parents with Brian Cimins – Every Day in Every Way, I’m Getting Better

Please enjoy another “Positive Affirmation for Kids” with Logan John Cimins, 5-year-old son of Life Coach and Grapplers Quest founder, Brian Cimins

“Every Day in Every Way, I’m Getting Better”
– Logan Cimins inspired by American Monk, Burt Goldman

This great positive affirmation is inspired by one of my mentors, Burt Goldman, aka “The American Monk”. It can be used at ANY age, especially for people who’ve been sick or with some type of long term illness.

People who consistently wait for others to ask, “How are you doing?” or “How are you feeling?”, just to launch into a 30 minute conversation about how much pain they are in or how bad something hurts or aches. Complaining and reliving an “old injury” is just magnifying the problem to you and the listening party.

Complaining doesn’t allow you to focus on your progress, however big or small, you are just wallowing in your pain. I broke my back in a martial arts competition on December 2, 2000 and was nearly paralyzed. As a martial arts event promoter, I refused to let my scary story give a black eye to the sport. I set out to completely recreate my mental frame of mind to help others deal with challenging situations, something life always seems to deliver.

Even if you are in pain, please realize EVERYONE “suffers” in their own way. By responding with a more uplifting and inspirational response, even if you are in pain when the person asks, you will quickly accelerate your own healing, even if just in your mind – at least it’s a start. Start healing in your mind first and YOUR body will follow. You must believe in this, if you really want to live pain free.

Give it a try, start today and repeat this Affirmation and Mantra every day for 30 days, “Every Day in Every Way, I’m Getting Better”.

Until next time, BE positive 🙂

With your success and happiness in mind
Your Strategy Coach,
Brian J. Cimins
