Things to say and not to say to kids

Interesting, I was just skimming through a quick 61-slide show on MSN about things never to say to kids, and one of them was “you can be anything you want in life”. The reason you shouldn’t say that is because Success = talent + hard work + luck, and Great Success = a little more talent + hard work + a lot of luck. This is consistent with the latest thinking about success found in books such as The Black Swan: The Impact of the Highly Improbable, by Nassim Nicholas Taleb, which came highly recommended to me by a friend.

That slide show is here, by the way:
