Be Humble or Get Humbled (Letters to my Sons — Part 2)

I’ve found there’s no need to announce myself with a title.

Teacher.

Entrepreneur.

Father.

Husband.

Man.

American.

I’ve worn many hats and have learned that the key is not name, but actions.

Never announce you are a knight, simply behave as one. You are better than no one, and no one is better than you.

Everything on this earth relies on eachother. If all of the seemingly insignificant insects on the planet died at once, our entire ecosystem would fall apart.

You need others as much as they need you. Never ride into battle alone.

I’ve done my best to raise you without a sense of entitlement, painstakingly balancing the idea that you have greatness in you, but without empathy/kindness/work/etc. it cannot be unlocked.

Never allow anything in your life to become ‘the new normal,’ less you begin a vicious cycle of never having ‘enough.’

Work hard.

Stay humble.
