Hi Everyone, I am supposed to write about lesson learnt from My Dad ..i think there are so many lessons that hard to put in words , I am raised in a joined family with 3 of my other siblings and 4th me,, my dad has started his career as a physics professor but slowly because of family responsibilities he joined my grandpa’s business that is the very first lesson of my life, if you are a family person you have to give importance to not only your dreams but responsibilities to raise your family as well.
He was truly believer of hard worker ,that is the second most important thing which I learnt , with his hard work he raised his income and business of my grandfather very successfully ,along with that he in his spare time he always tried to teach us science and felt like living life in those moments his passion of study, that is the another lesson ,your family may need you but you can steal some moments for your passion, interests as well which might help not only you happy but your family as well.
Another thing his favorite dialog is “Impossible word in found in dictionary in fools” inspires me till today, after coming to US I became mommy and quit my career and slowly became a housewife but when my son grew 3 years old my dad inspired me to chase my dreams again, he was having so much confidence in me that I started believing in myself and stepped out of home ,based upon my prior experience and education was able to achieve my dreams. Most important thing he is very very honest for his work, which inspires me as well to give your 100% to your job, whether its is at home, office, work or with your kid. He hates lies which make me also a stammered while it comes to speaking a lie ,though it sometimes create
Most important thing he is very very honest for his work, which inspires me as well to give your 100% to your job, whether its is at home, office, work or with your kid. He hates lies which make me also a stammered while it comes to speaking a lie ,though it sometimes create problem but in long run it always help you. He always paid respect to his coworkers ,seniors ,elders in family, in my whole life no matter what I never saw him disrespecting anyone which teaches me true lesson of give respect ,take respect.
He is an early riser , I don’t say people who can not get up early are not good but somehow I myself feel more organized by getting up early ,I feel my day will be more successful.
I am thankful to god for giving me such a wonderful dad!
