10 Life Lessons I Learnt From My Father

Fathers are always close to daughters and daughters have a special untold attachment with fathers. My mother still narrates an incident I used to fall sick when my dad used to travel or not at home. My father has been the man behind my success and a supportive pillar in whatever tasks I undertake. I am what I am today because of his constant encouragement.

While you attend an interview and unsure of the answer, speak with confidence. Confidence is key. Sometimes, you need to look like you're confident even when you're not. 

I had to wait for good things, until the time favored me. Patience is bitter, but its fruit is sweet. 

People I trusted the most betrayed me. My father had consoled to me saying: Never trust anyone completely but God. Love people, but put your full trust only in God. Trust, but verify.

Never lie, never cheat, never steal. When people cheat in any arena, they diminish themselves-they threaten their own self-esteem and their relationships with others by undermining the trust they have in their ability to succeed and in their ability to be true

Always be thankful to god for whatever you are today. Be thankful that you are able to step into a new day, the food you get, the money you splurge, finally, the sleep you get. The essence of all beautiful art, all great art, is gratitude. 

Always be on time and avoid being late. Punctuality is the soul of business.


When someone insults you, you don't deserve it. Give it back right then no matter who it is. What you do is what you get. 

Save money to make a living NOT to an extent that the money rules you. Never run behind money, you might lose other important things in life.


Always control your anger. Anger has caused great epics like Mahabharata.. Holding on to anger is like grasping a hot coal with the intent of throwing it at someone else; you are the one who gets burned.

There are millions of people dying due to hunger. Never waste food and respect the food you get. Annam Brahma is a famous Sanskrit saying that the food is equivalent to god.

I can pen down many lessons I have learned from my father ever since I was a child. I am cutting it short to ten for time being. These lessons have helped me grow into a good person. Thanks daddy, for correcting me every time I made a mistake and helped me grow stronger to face the corrupt and challenging world!
