-Shefali Tsabary, PhD

1. Not that they will be a good achiever, but a good learner

2. Not that they will obey you, but that they will respect you

3. Not that they will blindly follow your dictates, but that they will seek your counsel

4. Not that they will follow your vision, but that they will create their own

5. Not that they will achieve “success,” but that they will live a life of purpose

6. Not that they won’t fail, but that they will find the courage to start again

7. Not that they won’t hurt others, but that they will find the grace to ask for forgiveness
