It’s always interesting to learn from others. I really find it fascinating to learn from people who it is that inspires them; who guides them?; who supports them? No one has the same list of people they talk to when they need advice or guidance and many of us have multiple people we might turn to depending on the situation we are facing. We might have work mentors, family support systems, financial consultants, health coaches, therapists and counselors, spiritual advisers and more.
We all have mentors, teachers, friends or loved ones who really help us become better. Sometimes all of those “titles” could be rolled into one person.
One year ago today, I published one of my most popular blog posts ever. I base this on the number of times it was read, not on whether people agreed with the message, “liked” it or tweeted it out on Twitter. I will say, of the 340+ posts I have ever written, it is easily one of my most heartfelt and proudest posts because it was about a mentor, teacher, friend and loved one who just happened to be my Dad.
If you never had a chance to read this post from last February 17th, 11 Years of Lessons from Sean’s Dad, you might want to start there. It’s one that I find myself going back to and reading often, just to remind me of the incredible things that my Dad meant to me and those who knew him.
I couldn’t really consider going in there each year and adding a new lesson because I think I covered most of the bases last year. I did however, feel that there was a thought or idea that I have learned from 12 years of visiting my father that I wanted to share because it might be something you have done as well. I just felt it might be better said than written.
