In search of purpose: Being a role model

The movie Everest is about the story of the 1996 disaster on Mt. Everest that killed 8 climbers, one of whom was Doug Hansen. 

Doug, who worked as a mailman, was on his second attempt to climb Mt. Everest.  When asked why he wanted to climb, Doug said " I have kids. They see a regular guy who follows an impossible dream, maybe they'll do the same ." 

Being a role model to your kids doesn't mean that you have to climb Everest or run an ultra marathon in the Gobi Desert.  You just have to show them that you don't ever give up on your own dreams.  

Be a basecamp to your kids.  And your kids won't forget that. 

Happy Fathers Day.
