The Truth Revealed: Nature Vs. Nurture

I’m answering one of the BIGGEST questions in life thats been argued for centuries… What REALLY makes the difference in the trajectory of our lives…. NATURE or NURTURE???
Which has the greater impact? Is it the traits you were BORN with, or is it the traits you GROW into as a direct reflection of your environment?
Here’s what I’ve found.
It’s a combination, and the OPTIMAL way to maximize both is to NURTURE THE NATURE. That’s because winning is not only MENTAL. It’s also ENVIRONMENTAL.
For example…if you’re a parent and you see your child gravitate to specific activities, do everything you can to give them the opportunity to grow those talents. That applies if they sing and dance, play sports, are academically gifted, or have admirable personality traits.
The greatest gift you can give a child, or anybody else for that matter, is to REMOVE BARRIERS and CREATE TIME AND SPACE for them to fully develop those talents.
Too often, we pick one or the other, and that’s a HUGE MISTAKE.
To nurture the nature, you must uncover what those gifts and talents are.
LISTEN.
Ask QUESTIONS.
Spend DEDICATED TIME helping to uncover those gifts.
Routinely give ENCOURAGEMENT and PRAISE.
And most important of all, BE IN THE MOMENT.
Here’s the coolest part of all.
When you discover and grow the gifts, talents, and greatness in them.
Often, you’ll find their greatness is a REFLECTION OF YOU.
