Some of us barely open our eyes before we stumble out of our homes in the morning, but Ron Alston and his three-year-old daughter, Aliyah, have a different sort of start to their days. Every morning, Alston and Aliyah stand in front of the mirror and practice positive affirmations about being respectful and working hard.

Morning Motivation Starting off with positive affirmations can set a great tone for how your day unfolds. Learning this from an early age can be very beneficial in the esteem and confidence of a child. We are all Destined for Greatness!
