I too often hear: I don’t know, or I never learned. My father didn’t teach me that. I had no men in my life to teach me to be a man. I had no father so how am supposed to know how a father should be? Well interestingly enough there are many men reaching out to help others answer these questions an make these excuses go away.
For that is what they are excuses, nothing more or less. Because I would hazard to say if you wish to know something you will research the hell out of it and learn to do it. The only thing stopping you from being a better father is taking that first step and wanting to improve your relationship that you have with your children.
I am blessed in this area, I had a good father, uncles, grandfather, mentor to guide me through life. I have seen both bad and good along the way and I have been both a bad father and good one. It takes experience and learning from other good men that are fathers.
Hunter Drew has been talking and taking action, for some quite some time on fatherhood and family.
He has taken all these experiences and put them together in one resource, this is not just a book or a course. It is a collection of knowledge all in one place for any type of learner.
Read, listen, watch, my thought: do all three and let it really sink in.
Broken up into 3 major subjects
Presence > Presents
Deeds > Words
Future > Past
Hunter goes through each in depth, yet in a simple understandable concept that you can easily take action from. And that is the key, not only read and listen, take what you learn – take action – apply it.
The first step to be a better father is knowing you need to do the research.
The second step is getting the information and going through it.
The third is making a lifelong commitment to change.
For that is what it really takes, everyday assess how you are doing as a father and work to improve. Get started today.
