Ivan Gibson known as IG is best friends with Kevin NORANT. When IG and NORANT come together their bond spells out IGNORANT. IG and NORANT use IGNORANT to teach 8 life principles to help youth clear their life of anything that is IGNORANT.

I is for Inspire. When people become inspired they should want to stay inspired. Give powerful words of encourage to each other. Young people should hear you speak great of them like you do to others. The next time a youth messes up ask if you can give them constructive criticism? This will open up doors to better communication.

G is for Give. Back up what you say by giving others a role model to look up to. If we tie our shoes others might want to pull up their pants. Learn how to apologize when you make a mistake. This may be the best gift someone receives in their lifetime.

N is for Notice. Anyone can look and find something wrong with you. Take time and found out what people are good at. Many fall and come short because they never found their strengths and no one in leadership found it either. Look for the light that can keep others out of darkness. When you do others will come through for you.

O is for Opportunity. When you study a person and can’t figure out what a person is good or great at, ask them? You may discover an unhidden talent that can be developed. Just when you think you can’t help someone a few questions can open doors to many opportunities. Open up your database and call to see who can truly help the ones you want to help.

R is for Read. Al Tucker who is a great friend of mine has a gift to inform you what books you should read based on your abilities. When Al saw I wanted to become a better father he suggested the book Maximum Achievement by Brian Tracy. When I was interested in spiritual growth I was presented with the Maxwell Leadership Bible. If we read what we need life will give us what we want.

A is for Adjust. One way to leave ignorance is to become better at the things that are relevant in our lives.  How we adjust to situations that comes to and through our life plays a vital role in how far we go. Learning how to do more or less is the critical balance we have to strive for that will keep us on the beam or off the team. Keep trusting the future by adjusting from time to time.

N is for Navigate. When you learn better you will earn better. Go forth wise so you won’t be caught by surprise. The adjustments you make today shouldn’t keep you from making achievement tomorrow. When you are able to keep going your progress will keep growing. People that used to just look at you will start to look out for you. They will even open the gate so you can navigate through.

T is for Team. I have never met anyone that totally made it by themselves. If anyone tells you anything else it may sound IGNORANT. We have to discuss discernment with the next generation so they will know who or who not they should work with. In business help will be in the form of a mentor or partner. In a life a mate or spouse will be your side. It takes a wise team to multiply your dream.

IG and NORANT don’t want you or your children to be IGNORANT. This is a story with the morals being that we need to camp out in our homes and schools so that less of us will be IGNORANT. Some will stay IGNORANT only because they or the ones before them refuse to leave an IGNORANT life.

If you are a parent that is holding children back from proceeding put that curse in reverse so they can go from worst to first.  If this doesn’t apply thank you for not being IGNORANT.

The TEENAGER Blueprint: 8 Principles That Can Empower Young People To Success

January 20, 2012

Copyright 2012 by Encouragement Speaker Derrick Hayes

Are you a parent or do you work with young adults? If you do I’m here to share with you 8 principles that you can use to teach and empower your TEENAGER.

The first principle is Thankful. A young person needs to know the importance of appreciating who they are, what they are and where they are in life. Now is the time for youth to look in the mirror and realize they have a great life and should be better and not bitter for it.

The second principle is Evaluate. After youth are humble and thankful it is time to for them to examine their wants and needs so they can add or subtract the right things in order to move ahead in life.

The third principle is Exchange. When people know who they are and what they can bring to the table it puts them in a position to network effectively so they can build relationships. As adults we must show a positive example of how to meet and greet along with how to give each other feedback.

The fourth principle is Navigate. Youth that learn to take action are less likely to stay in their comfort zone as an adult. As an instructor try your best not to let your fears interfere with student progress.

The fifth principle is Attitude. Kids are watching how we stand and wear our clothes. We can’t ask them to tie their shoes and pull their pants up if we are not doing the same. Youth need to know and learn that 95% of all communication is nonverbal.  What people see for the most part is what they perceive you to be.

The sixth principle is Guidance. When youth are on their way with the right attitude a little guidance can be a difference maker. Finding a mentor and being able to accept advice and constructive criticism will keep youth from making long term mistakes.

The seventh principle is Elevator. If you are a mentor or counselor keep your door open. Life is an elevator where success can have you on the top floor and failure can take you down to the basement. Teach children how to look for ways to make multiple streams of income so they won’t have all their eggs in one basket. Also find ways to take others with you.

The eighth principle is Recommit. Share your stories to children so they will know how to get up after they fall down. After you rise and fall it is time to go back to what you do best. Open up the next generation to not want to give up so easy but to be able to regroup and know they are one step away from walking in their destiny.
