Sean’s Thoughts For The Week Ahead – 48
Sean’s Thoughts For The Week Ahead – 48
Week 48. Wow. Five more and Sean can officially say he’s no longer a rookie. Five makes # 53…officially the start of his second year of blogging. By the way, what Sean is wearing in this picture is his costume for “Filipino Week” in his school. Now, on to something that’s completely fascinating and exciting at the same time.
I found out something not too long ago that completely humbled me. It even brought tears to my eyes for a minute. Two kids started blogging too because of their exposure to Sean’s writings. Now that, my friends, is priceless beyond reason and belief…in my opinion. I know two is a small number, but show me a way we could get to a million without passing # 2. See the big picture?
Even Bill Gates, at one point in the past, had to earn his first $2 for him to get to his $52Billion. We never really thought about this when we started “Sean’s Thoughts For The Week Ahead” almost a year ago, but it could be that we unintentionally planted the seeds for a future forest. It was definitely not an accident. It’s more like serendipity. I feel that we were used as instruments to get “the process” started. I can live with that. In fact, I like that…a lot!
I’ve been thinking: Why do kids bully other kids? The best answer I can come up with is low self-esteem on the part of the one doing the bullying. Now what if instead of punishing bullies after-the-fact, we expose these future nuisances to positive information that will raise their self-esteem BEFORE they become bullies? Hmmm…interesting.
I’m not saying we will change the world, but we are definitely creating the spark that can alter the direction for those kids we touch…through another kid who is going through this awesome “Positivity” journey too. Kids, in my opinion, will listen to other kids more than they would listen to their parents. Now what if the peer pressure in school goes something like this, sometime in the near future: “Dude, have you started your blog yet? No?! What are you waiting for?! Do it! Do it NOW!” (an 11-year-old pressuring another 11-year-old).
I know that sounds like a bold dream now, but so was man going to the moon back in 1962. It took the US 7 years to pull that off, but they did! Now what if we do too? It took us almost a year to hear about “the first two”. I wonder what seven years will bring us too. Think about it for a minute. Hmmm… interesting concept. I know, right?! Have an awesome week ahead and be blessed…ALWAYS!!!
Sean’s Thoughts For The Week Ahead
(1) “Don’t get mad too easily when something you don’t like happens. It is better to accept what has happened and make sure it doesn’t happen again.”
(2) “It is better to make friends with everyone than to hate some and love some.”
(3) “Don’t get too addicted to material things because they are only temporary.”
(4) “When you do your best, you will almost always get the best. You will also have a lot of friends because people love to be around winners.”
(5) “When somebody makes a mistake, don’t blame or punish them because nobody is perfect.”
(6) “Always have a lot of friends in school. Don’t judge them by their looks or material things. Judge them by their attitudes. ”
(7) “Don’t lose hope until the end because who knows, there just might be a miracle that would happen. Just keep praying to God.”
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.
