As fathers, we’d gladly lay down our lives for our children. That’s a given. But the bigger question is whether we’re living for them right now.
And to that point, are we doing the things right now that allow us to be truly and fully present for them? The answer is a resounding “no”.
There are many reasons we’re falling short, from excuses, lack of motivation, and putting ourselves last. And I’ve said this many times before and it’s as true now as it ever was and that’s “if you aren’t even taking care of yourself, how can you take care of your family the best way possible?”
In today’s show, I share some of the reasons we aren’t living for our kids in a way that serves them the best and why. This is an important topic and our families deserve the best possible husbands and fathers.
Please understand that I’m not judging anyone. I’m not calling anyone a deadbeat. I’m speaking from personal experience when I say we can do better. We can be better.
Putting ourselves first isn’t selfish. In my opinion, we can’t be the best possible fathers if we aren’t. Join a tribe of fathers working on being the best they can every damn day.
