This wasn't really what I was looking for. The focus was to shift your ideas of success from worldly things to Godly things. It gave many anecdotes and examples of why we should define success based on character and not achievement but no real practical advise on how to develop that in kids. My idea of success is already in line with this thinking so most of the points he made were moot. His only real advice was to lead by example. Overall it was not a terribly helpful read. ( )

You want only the best for your kids. And you want them to be successful. Sure, there's nothing wrong with that. But what if there was something more? Could your definition of success be leaving out the most important part?

What about greatness? Where does it fit in? "If you aim your children at anything less than greatness, you'll set them up to miss the whole point of their lives," says author Tim Kimmel. In Raising Kids for True Greatness, Kimmel turns the definition of success on its head and guides you in preparing your child for a life that will easily eclipse the goals of those who are merely successful.

Learn how to prepare your kids for rich lives of true greatness by helping them find answers to life's three most crucial, life-changing questions regarding their mission, mate, and master:

What are they going to do with their potential? Who will they spend their lives with? Who will they live it for?
