Trying to have a rewarding and successful career can seem challenging by itself — and life inevitably becomes more complicated when you have kids.

The question we often hear is, Is it even possible? Can you have a successful career and be an amazing parent?

The answer is yes.

Although parenting style is a personal choice, self-made millionaire T. Harv Eker shares how he’s been able to raise great kids and run a successful business at the same time. You can read the original article here.

1. Avoid Choosing Between Kids And Work

We need to move from the idea of parents struggling and
having to choose ‘either/or’ to a mindset of ‘both.’

– T. Harv Eker

We don’t live in an either/or world. We can be great parents and have a successful, fulfilling career. In fact, it’s a requirement — we can’t abandon our family to focus on our jobs, and we can’t ignore our bills to focus on our family. It’s got to be a balance — which means prioritizing properly.

You can follow Harv’s suggestion, called “The Big Rocks System.” Put all of your priorities on the calendar before doing anything so you can have enough time for each task.

2. Challenge Your Beliefs Around Parenting

Your kids barely hear what you say, but they certainly watch what you do. Watching what you do and understanding what you do, those are much more powerful than anything you say.

– T. Harv Eker

To be a good parent, you have to look at your own beliefs and behaviors. These are two common mistakes parents make when raising their children.

Mistake No.1

The first mistake happens when we don’t recognize our own power as role models. We have to live with the integrity we’d live with if we thought someone was always watching — because someone is, and they’re learning from us.

Mistake No.2

The second common mistake happens when we don’t give children enough room and space to grow. We can’t forget that the true point of parenting is to raise happy and independent children.

3. Banish Entitlement

There are consequences for everything, both positive and negative. You’re not
doing them any favors by protecting every single thing about them.

– T. Harv Eker

Hardships, obstacles, and challenges are usually good for children.

We don’t need to banish the presence of hardship to be good parents; we need to banish entitlement. When children learn how to overcome an obstacle on their own, not only do they become stronger, they also become more confident and more likely to be successful. We can’t rob them of their growth.

And that’s the most important point — by choosing every day to be a good role model and by teaching our children how to become independent, we naturally end up having the successful career and an amazing family.
