A few things my father taught me...

1. Always show up. For school, for work, for life.

2. Never start a fight, but always finish it.

3. Strength is in your character, not your muscles.

4. Always give a firm handshake.

5. Don't kick animals (this is an inside joke!).

6. Trust is earned, not given.

7. How to correctly pour a glass of beer.

8. The number one man in your life is your father.

9. How to throw a football, catch a baseball, and swing a golf club.

10. Never settle.
