My promise to my dad is of hope and inspiration. We’ve found a way to communicate with one another, open up about our struggles and setbacks, and found uplifting moments that inspire us to overcome our challenges.
Although both my dad and I are successful in many aspects of our lives, our relationship is not about academic accolades, popularity, or financial success – it’s about making our dreams come true and leaving a legacy.
Growing up my dad would read aloud from books like ‘Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill, ‘The Wealthy Barber by David Chilton, or ‘The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. My dad sought to be a positive thinker and to never give up even when facing his greatest fears.
