In celebration of Father’s Day, we want to honor the fathers in our lives by sharing life advice we received from them, as shared by our listeners. This wisdom from dads encompasses various aspects of life advice, not just the practical and everyday things like remembering to bring a jacket on cold days or learning how to drive. While those things are important too, there is more to it.
We extend our heartfelt wishes for a Happy Father’s Day to all dads, including expectant fathers, fathers who are no longer with us, and those who serve as father figures. May you spend Father’s Day embracing and celebrating fatherhood in your own unique way.
Here are some valuable pieces of advice shared by dads, edited for brevity and clarity:
- “Learn everything you can about what you love, and no one can take that from you.” – Clifford Whitney
- Following this advice, I pursued a fulfilling career in television engineering.
- “Don’t tighten the screws on furniture that needs to be assembled until it’s fully put together. Make your decision, but don’t commit until everything is aligned and in the right place.” – Pam Goodman
- Looking back, I believe this advice extends beyond furniture assembly to major life decisions.
- “The only thing we can’t fix is death. For everything else, there is always a way.” – Krissia Keck
- This perspective helps me put problems into context and reminds me that there is always a way out, even when things seem hopeless.
- “Never be afraid to pursue something you want, as long as it is safe, moral, and doesn’t harm others.” – Frannie Doonan
- This crucial lesson has guided me throughout my life, and I believe it has served me well.
- “When uncertain about how warm to dress, wear extra clothes. You can always take them off, but if you don’t have them, you can’t put them on.” – Brian Klawun
- This advice, given before an outdoor football game, applies not only to dressing but also to being prepared in life.
- “If you ever wonder whether or not to do something and there is no real downside, just do it.” – Elizabeth Broderick
- This advice, originally about using headlights while driving, can be applied to taking chances in life.
- “You can’t control most things in life, but you can always control your attitude.” – Gordon Granger
- My dad’s words remind me that while we can’t control external factors, we have power over our own mindset.
- “Try to make new friends and accept all invitations. Opening yourself up to new people and experiences can lead to unexpected connections and friendships.” – Emily Walls Ray
- This advice was especially meaningful to me during a time when I felt alone and far from home.
On this special day, let us cherish and appreciate the wisdom and guidance of fathers.
