Dani Johnson on her Grooming the Next Generation for Success

How might a parent prepare their children for success? Dani Johnson, millionaire, sales coach, and multi-level marketer, is also a mother. She took time out of her successful life to write a book on how to parent: Grooming the Next Generation for Success. Then she gave us an interview in 2009. It is a keeper. Since I am once again encouraging faith for success and improvements in parenting and teaching toward student success, let’s hear Dani Johnson once again.

Here is a woman who gained great success. She trains others for success in the marketplace. Out of love for her children, she considered how to teach them to be the kind of people who will be successful. She gave them vision for success. She gave them tools for success. Then, she wrote a book to share that with us. This is a second opportunity for us. Perhaps you weren’t with us in 2009 when she gave us this interview. Take advantage of it now. Be a successful parent. Share this with your friends. Make a lioness tribe of successful moms because they have successful children.

Given that she is a mother and a successful millionaire, she is not as intimidated as a professional educator or pastor to say something that we all know. Discipline in parenting is needed to inculcate the kind of self-discipline that is needed as an adult. Perhaps that is more clear after this past year even than it was in 2009. Given that she is a sales trainer, she talks about “scripts” — what I would call “verbatims’ given my ministry training. In short, she helps her children know the words to speak. I love the story where she is helping her son see that chipping in to do housework really is part of the kind of leadership training that he desires. She transposes her conversation with him, mother-son, to his future conversation coach-to-athlete. Priceless. It gives vision, don’t you see? Also, when asked to do something that maybe wouldn’t be their preference, her children say, “Yes, mom, I would be glad to.” Self-restraint! Self-direction! Don’t we need a little more of that in the world, right now? Why then, do we provide scripts for resentment, self-indulgence, and violence? Or, while decrying discipline, then inculcate shaming, threatenings, and violence? HMMMM? Things we see so rampant today that we never thought of in 2009.

You will want to get the book! In her book, Grooming the Next Generation for Success, she also addresses how to help children avoid porn and how to deal with dating. It is amazing. Why, why why has no one discussed this before? And so helpfully?!?!? I sued to spend a lot of time giving you links to Amazon for the many books referenced here. Today, please go to Christian Book Distributors, or your other favorite bookseller. DO get the book.
