Father Knows Best: Top Ten Tremendous Tips

DadTinceMy father was a humorist and a motivator whose outlook on life was exuberant beyond description, yet he was also one of the most pragmatic, contrarian thinkers I have ever encountered. With his wit and wisdom, he had a way of putting my angst and complaining in check in just a few, well-chosen words. This Father’s Day, I pay tribute to the top ten Tremendousisms he shared with me over the years. To this day I can still hear him saying these!

 

On Finding the Right Man: Find something with pants on and pray!

On Quitting: You can’t quit; you ain’t done nothin’ yet!

On Self-Pity: Is what you’re going through any worse than what Jesus suffered?

On Disliking Your Boss: You can either work for yourself or you can work for someone else. As long as you work for someone else, this will always happen.

On Asking “Why Me?”: Things go wrong for you so that you can be a blessing to someone in the future when they are going through the same thing. This isn’t about you!

On Cold Calling: If you can knock on a door and make a sale, you can do anything in life.

On Keeping the Customer’s Interest: Put your head through the door, not your foot. That way you can keep on talking when they go to close the door on you.

On Making Decisions: Make it, Make it yours, die by it.

On Expectations: Expect everything to go wrong; that way, when things don’t, you are pleasantly surprised!

On What’s Important in Life: In all your life you’ll only make three truly important decisions: Who will you live your life with? What will you live your life doing? Who will you live your life for?
