Ask any father out there, and chances are most of them would say the same thing, “My daughter has made me a better man.” If you are one of these fathers, then you know how truly lucky you are. Daughters can truly change a man’s life without him even realizing it at times.
My life was forever changed two years ago. Ever since the miraculous day of your birth, you have inspired me to become a better man. Prior to your birth, I was not a man worthy of having such a beautiful little girl in my life. Having a daughter is the greatest source of motivation and the best thing that can happen to a man.
You completely transformed my life in these last two years. I have experienced exponential growth in my development as a man, a father, and a husband. New areas of my mind have opened and I am becoming the person you and your beautiful mother deserve. I am not there yet, but I will be.
One of the deepest philosophical questions we often ask is, “What is the meaning of life?” I know my answer to that question. You are my reason for living, you are the meaning in my life.
Here are five ways you have inspired me to become a better man.
1. Stand for What’s Right
“Stand up for what is right, even if you stand alone.”– Suzy Kassem
Our life is full of choices and our choices set the foundation for our life. We are all living the result of our past choices. You have inspired me to stand for others and stand for what’s right. A strong and good man will look after the less fortunate. He will be powerful and relentless when protecting others.
I want you to see that your father will take a stand if I perceive something to be wrong, even if I stand alone.
2. Do What’s Right
“To know and not to do, is not yet to know.”– Roger J. Hamilton
It is easy to tell someone to do the right thing, however, it is much harder to actually do the right thing. You have inspired me to take this stand and do the right thing. All I have to do is think of you when I am about to do the wrong thing.
The fact that I know you are always watching, I can feel confident that I will try my hardest to do the right thing, even when it is difficult.
3. Be Fearless
“The question isn’t who is going to let me; it’s who is going to stop me.”– Ayn Rand
You have made me fearless. I no longer have any concern about what other people think of me. We all have a choice as to what level of life we want to live and you have inspired me to evolve to a higher level. Because of you, I have chosen to live at the highest level possible.
It is crazy to think of the danger you put yourself in when you play at a higher level. People will attack you when they realize you have made the leap. They have no idea why they are attacking you, but they still do. It is because of you that I am not bothered by this. The fact that these people attack me is the validation of moving to a higher level.
