Sean’s Thoughts For The Week Ahead – 42
Sean went back to school a few days ago…5th grade. This is his last school year in the Philippines. Next year, he’ll be in the U.S. One thing I can say is the culture in the Philippines, in most cases, is ideal for raising kids. The simple things still matter and respect for elders is very well ingrained in most Filipinos.
America will be a new environment for Sean, but him being Sean, he’s got a leg up compared to other kids his age here in the U.S. I don’t know too many 11-year-olds here who’s into his or her 42nd blog post in the international scene. That’s actually very fascinating if you really think about it for a minute.
I’ve always known Sean is unique since he was a little kid. I remember there was a time his Mom and him were studying. There was a picture of a kid with a Band-Aid. The main point was to identify what a Band-Aid looks like. Sean saw the picture, and he started asking questions after he properly identified the Band-Aid.
1. Why was the kid hurt?
2. Did he fall?
2. Where was his Mommy?
Sean was just in 2nd grade during that time. I just quietly said: “Hmmm…interesting.”
Have a great week ahead and make it a great life!
Sean’s Thoughts For The Week Ahead
Sean’s Thoughts For The Week Ahead
(1) “When you’re trying to do something, don’t get mad so easily. Be patient because it will be worth it.”
(2) “Don’t overwork your brain. Our brains need some rest too.”
(3) “Don’t get mad so easily just because somebody made a mistake. Nobody is perfect.”
(4) “Do your work on time because in the end, it will be worth it.”
(5) “Smile always. Don’t be so moody so you won’t grow old fast.”
(6) “Respect the animals because they are like people too.”
(7) “Always be on time. Do not be late. Late comers don’t get the best ones.”
In case you missed Sean’s mantra, which we shared on our last post, we decided to share it again. In fact, we’ll share it every week for the new visitors. Check them out again. It’s not just a mantra that he reads, it’s who Sean is. It’s something he recites to himself in front of a mirror consistently on a daily basis that just pumps him up. Sean is very consistent with this. He reads this in the morning before he brushes his teeth, and at night after brushing his teeth before bed time.

Sean’s Video Of The Week:
We’re asking him to watch this video once a day for the next 7 days. Next week will be a different video. You can do the same if you’d like to take the journey with us. We’re both doing it ourselves with Sean too. Like we said before, we already know what happens when kids are exposed to negativity. We’re strategically exposing him to positivity. We already know what will happen. We’re just excited to see how far and how fast he will go. He’s our live experiment and this blog is our laboratory. Let’s take the journey with our young man, Sean Zafra. I don’t think this has ever been done before. If it hasn’t been, then we’re excited and proud to be the first ones to do this. I know for sure Sean will thank us a lot for all of these.
