My good friend Ed Mylett once said:
“We are taught some things, but the best things are caught.”
And I couldn’t agree with him more.
Because it’s super easy to TELL your kids how to act, what to believe, and even how to feel.
But it’s harder to SHOW them how to act, what to believe, and how to feel.
I say this because our parents have probably told us things we’ve ignored.
And yet, we still adopted some of the same habits, thoughts, and vices as them now.
Some of these are good.
Some of these are bad.
And some are absolute dog s#!t.
This is how the cycle gets repeated again and again and again.
Now here’s how you break the cycle: Make your actions congruent with your words.
Otherwise, you’d be just like the hypocrite we vowed to never become.
This is why I workout with my son every night, show my kids how I build my financial literacy, and have weekly date nights with my wife.
I share this with you because there’s still time to be The Man your kids want to look up to, admire, and aspire to be.
Because I didn’t have the best childhood growing up, and maybe you didn’t too.
But that doesn’t mean your son has to go through what you went through.
We can break the cycle together.
And leave a legacy that’s worth more than any luxury car, fancy watch, or a private jet.
When we do this, we’ll raise the standard of men for the next generation.
