"Kirklyn J Berry has seen how youth’s attainment of their full potential necessitates one instrumental force guiding the way: motivation. With 10 years of mentoring experience, Kirk has crafted a practical system to teaching today’s adults how to foster the determination and, ultimately, the achievement of the adults of tomorrow. For the first time, Kirk commits his approach to the page, with 5 Powerful Tips for Motivating Youth, including:
Tip I: Begin with Dialogue – Motivation begins with listening; not instructing.
Tip II: Create Discipline – Make suggestions directly tied to their current interests to help them achieve their goals.
Tip III: Challenge Them – Offer a challenge; overcoming such a task is confirmation that a person’s structure and discipline is paying off.
TIP IV: Encourage – Champion them whether they succeed or fail at the challenge presented.
Tip V: Emphasize Positive Outcomes – If the seed you plant is going to grow, you must water it along the way.
These tips equip anyone who plays an active role in a young person’s life – coaches, family members, teachers – with the tools to encourage the fulfillment of the next generation.
