Dinis discusses being a role model for our children, instilling teamwork, and why being conscious of what we choose to focus on and assuming positive intent are such powerful tools in life.
Dinis Prazeres on DADicated.com: “The best advice I can give myself as a dad is to be kind to yourself and be mindful of what you focus on because what you focus on grows.”
Dinis Prazeres is a father of two sons, 6 and 10. He met his wife, who is from Poland, while studying in France, and they currently live together in Canada.
Dinis shares his journey of taking over the reins from his own father in the family business and more recently shifting more towards full-time life- and mindfulness coaching.
In the session we discuss his own upbringing, being a role model for our children, parenting by impact and instilling teamwork and Dinis explains his leadership principles and why being conscious of what we choose to focus on and assuming positive intent are such a powerful tools in life.
The most powerful takeaways for me as a dad were:
- When you’re grounded and happy you’re in the best possible capacity to be a parent, leader or friend.
- So much of parenting is about self-management.
- Emphasize the strengths and abilities of my children to help them focus on what they’re good at.
- What you focus on grows so focus on those golden opportunities of happiness.
- “The best gift we can give someone else is our own happiness.”
