I recently read a heart-warming post on Google +, from one of my SMG Security Mavericks Coaching Club members, that really hit home for me. The post is about how instrumental and inspirational a father can be. I can say that I was raised by a truly great man that grew up on a potato farm in Ireland. He worked his butt off to get to America and worked even harder here. He instilled strong work ethics and great family values into his five children. I can never truly thank him enough for being such a wonderful, giving father. On the other side of my thoughts below on what a father should be, I’ll share with you the Google + post that generated this email.
This Is What A Father Is Suppose To Be!
A father must be there to set an example for his children, a strong and positive model of who, what, and how to behave in life, and a model for the children to aspire to be.
Being a role model is the most powerful form of educating. Children need good role models in life more than they need critics. It is one of a father’s greatest responsibilities and opportunities.
Too often fathers neglect it because they get so caught up chasing the almighty buck and closing the next deal, that the family and the kids are an afterthought.
You have one shot through this thing called life, so why not have it all, see it, do it all, and have a family life that is second-to-none?
