The single best thing I ever did to teach my daughters to love and respect themselves was to love and respect myself. Being a father means having a constant audience to witness your failures and successes. Being perfect isn’t the standard; what truly matters is the example of how you respond to failure, challenge and success. You were born to rise!
Do you teach your kids and the people around you that the fight isn’t over as long as you get up?
Is your life a story that demonstrates your values and passions?
Whether or not you care to admit it, you are the one holding the pen in your self live story. Maybe your parents picked the stage it is set on and some of the supporting cast, but you are the writer, the director and the actor.
Make your story one that makes the ones you love know they can write theirs too.
It’s a long journey and it takes time, patience, dedication, hard work, sacrifices, goals, and so much more, but at the end of the day that time is going to pass regardless and in the end every single step will be worth it even more than you can imagine.
