In light of fathers dad. I would like to have a tribute to my father. Even though it has been rough and extremely hard for me to write this.
I would like to thank my dad for everything! I would not be the man I am today without his help.
I do not remember that much about my childhood but other people told me I was extremely happy and that there was a lot of happiness present when people saw me with him.
Ironic, I was watching the movie trolls yesterday and the whole movie was about an instance where he the main character blamed himself for everything and then there was a point where he was he true authentic self after just discovering love.
Similar, I think sharing this story will shed a lot of light into the things I do and why I do some of the things I do.
Pretty much my whole life, I have been striving for something. Always looking for mentorships and looking for validation to prove my worth. (Because I didn’t have a father to tell me my worth).
I have discovered coaching through having a really inconsistent not stable life. Through these breakdowns I have found that you cannot have breakdowns if you are not truly committed to things. For instance, my own self worth and discovery is a breakdown I have really have often and is a really big breakdown.
My commitment to love and finding my beautiful and amazing girlfriend Samantha. There is nobody in the world I know for a fact that will ever provide me with the same amount of unconditional love as Samantha. Her being with me when it comes to love is unlike anything I have ever seen before. My perspective and perception of love changes as I start to discover my actions of thinking of her and putting herself before my own self at times. Wow, there is more to life than just yourself.
My father was a very charismatic guy. It really does scare me a shit ton because there so many so qualities that he has that is very similar to me. He was a natural born sales guy. He is very likable. He likes to talk a lot and is also can show love. I do recall him buying us a ton of candy and cooking us spam/ with ramen noodles which I actually really liked at the time. He even influenced me being a Nutrition major and wanting to help the world in that way at some point.
He taught me how to do sales, how to “Hustle” how to be passionate, with all of the energy and emotions. He taught me that math was important, that school was important. Honestly, I probably even have gone to college if he didn’t drill in my head how important school was. I would have probably tried to be an entrepreneur or go straight sales if it wasn’t for my father.
Basically the reason and purpose of this share is that there is always a silver lining and purpose to everything that happens in life.
My purpose of helping people and believing in others greatness stem from that fact that throughout my whole life I was trying to find my meaning in life. I have spent a good portion of my life trying to find it. All of the wonderful and amazing relationships I have built because of my relationship with my father. The breakdowns that occur because I was pushing and struggling because I “didn’t want to be like my dad” has given my the opportunity to do the things I do. Now that I do not resist being an amazing sales person that does add a ton of value to everyone’s lives that I touch. I can be more authentic, more just Davidson.
I appreciate everyone taking the time to read this.
Happy Fathers day to you, dad!
I do wish the best of you and I have debated whether or not to even invite you to my wedding and I would because I have realized that there is no use in bitter resentment. There is no purpose and my energy can be freed up to do other things in my life that can serve me and the world in a much more impactful way.
