Change is constant. We do not know what will happen tomorrow. There are drawbacks, uplifting situations that give us glimpse of how wonderful and amazing the world is. There is no such thing as coincidence. Everything happens for a reason as they always say. We may not see the purpose of it today but tomorrow may be another story.
When I was young, I was trained by my father to stand in my two feet, I should know what I want and push myself hard to make sure I can attain it. My father taught me that experience is the best teacher more so, if I want to achieve my goal in life, I should experience hardships in order for me to fully taste success. He does not give me anything I want easily, I should work for it, not asks for it as he always says. As a young girl, I do not understand it. I always fret, if I want extra money, I need to earn a 100% mark in my quizzes in order for him to buy it, and then I will have extra money. If I want a thing, I should watch over our little store in order for him to give me what he called “pay” then I will be able to buy what I want. I hate his ways. I always think that it is cruel and manipulative. Why can’t I get it easily just like what other parents do with their children? But he will keep on answering me “I will understand it when I get old”. I even mimic him when he says it. But…things really change when I get old and saw the picture and idea he wants me to see.
Because of that training I’ve got from my father, I have learned a lot. When I want something, I look for ways to get it. I become more independent minded. I don’t rely on fate or other people to get it. I become a goal oriented person. I know how to set goals and achieve it eventually. The training I’ve got watching over our little store made me realize that success comes to those who wait. Patience is a virtue. There is always time for everything and most especially, success is like a business. I have to work hard for it every day. I should not let it slip; one wrong move then I will come back to zero. I’ve also learned the ways of putting up a business and making it profitable. I’ve learned the taste and preferences of individual buyers. And I was able to apply it in the little business sideline that I have. I applied in my business as well how to treat a customer well in order for them to patronize our product. They were the little things I hate back when I was a child but the virtues they impressed on me are the most important. My father is right about it.
My papa is my idol. He has made me strong, independent and driven woman. I never thought that the training I’ve got from him will make me a success. I don’t know what I would become if he did not train me to be tough. Tough love has given me an advantage in this modern world.
My father’s legacy in my life is timeless and it just keeps on making my life better. Just like Hardys – after 160 years, it just keeps getting better.
