Early Motivation

The 5 year old grandkid read a story about Charles Atlas, the strongest man in the world. The bedtime story ignited a desire within him and in the morning, saying he also wanted to be a strong man. The next morning he got out the book to follow the exercises. He then reported he was going to continue doing these exercises each day, just like Charles Atlas had done.

I am in awe.
First a thought, that then created a budding desire, that was then followed by an action, and then a long-term plan. This is rather remarkable for someone so young. For us to be able to witness and observe this process of motivation in its infancy is rather incredible.
