The Man I Wish To Be

My father was born in a poor village. He found a beautiful wife, my mother, and had two children.

I don’t know how much you know about poor villagers and their lives. But if I had to describe them, I would use two words: hope and stillness.

  • Poor villagers always hope for a better life.
  • But they never take action, so they hardly change their life.

But my father never settled. He wanted his family to live better. He wanted his kids to have a better chance at life. So he broke the cycle and went abroad. And then he brought us with him.

Here are the 7 lessons I learned from him in all these years.
