My Name is Aadesh and its been my privilege to rite a guest post on This is my time writing a guest article here and would like the viewers to comment. My blog is Soccer Roundup, which talks about Soccer News and Analysis and also Video highlights of the game. Please visit my blog for more interesting Soccer News around the globe.

Today, I have been given an opportunity to write some lesson which I learned from my Dad over the years.

To be frank I learned a lot from my dad as most of us do. I would like to share one particular story which inspired me to do good things to people in life.

It was way back when I was a kid. Man approached my Dad asking him to help him over to get his sick mother to the hospital. At that time, my dad with out hesitating a bit helped him carry over the mother and admitted to the hospital. It was one of those moments when I watched him do the good things to people encouraged me to be good person and willing to help over the odds. As we all know life is short and I remember the saying Do Good as much as you can and do not worry about the fruit and also when you do good things in life, then good things will happen to you. I do not believe in luck as its just a saying. More good you do to others, better the life of yours will be.

After seeing my dad on another occasion when a poor man who did not have food to eat. My Father took him to the nearby restaurant and paid the bill. Man who was hungry blessed my dad and he left. Seeing these kinds of humanity things from my father with whom I spent much of my childhood made me the person who I am today.

On another instance, when my father provided free books and accessories to school children who were in need made my value for him rose higher. I also try to emulate in and try to do good things to people who really need it.

One good thing about my Dad is that whoever, when ever asks for help, my dad never says no. Helping is a good thing. My dad has taught me to help others and only helping will make me feel better and good and gives me immense satisfaction. People tend to forget all the good things others have done to us over time. Its really easy but its not worth it, when one day when you try to look back what you have done to people when they were in need , only then you will realize that how much worth was it when they helped you when you were in dire need of it.

Things which were done when a person in need is valued more that when they do not need it. People asks for help only when they need and when someone need that help real bad, then he will remember that person for life.

I would like to conclude by saying that help others and am sure seeing the happiness on their face will make your life better.
