His growth hampers in life.
Conditioning of thoughts in a positive way can be nurtured comfortably in childhood. We must not only take the utmost care to raise our children but also behave appropriately with them. Proper conditioning in early age is the seed of success. On the contrary, Improper conditioning results in the inappropriate raising of our children. Those children are less likely to succeed in life. This role the parents and guardians must play.
Similarly, the teachers, friends, boss, colleagues play a significant role in forming our lives successful or unsuccessful. However, we should not give up hope. Hope is always there. For us who believe in ourselves.
As a matter of fact, at any stage of our life, we have the power to condition our thoughts.
