In order to understand Fatherhood360, you need to understand two very important things. You need to know who we ARE as well as who we ARE NOT. By knowing both, you’ll have a clearer understanding of where we’re headed and how we might be able to assist you.
Who We Are!
- We are passionately committed to providing programs, resources, and information benefiting all men who desire to be successful leaders, both in the home and in their career.
- We are striving to empower men to reach their full potential in every role they fill and believe that regardless of how many roles we may fill, the role of father is far and away, the most important.
- We are actively engaged in spreading the idea that while the legacy that we will leave at the end of our lives is important, it is not nearly as important as leading our legacy while we still can.
- We are working to inspire men to be the heroes their families should not only expect and deserve, but can have as well.
- We are excited about the possibility of helping fathers understand how they can be leaders in their families and by doing so, help them realize they can have an impact far exceeding the boundaries of their homes and can potentially stretch to their communities, their countries and potentially, the entire world.
Who We Are Not!
- We are not superhumans. We are real and fallible and have struggles just like every other person.
- We are not perfect dads. Because we speak and write about things we’ve learned regarding what we feel can make a successful dad and husband does not mean that we don’t get upset with our kids, our wives, and ultimately ourselves from time to time. Sometimes, we feel like a complete and utter failure in our own fathering journeys, but we do know the value of forgiveness, both in extending and requesting it.
- Currently, the words “dad blog” return about 294,000 search results in Google. Those blogs serve many great purposes and while those of us who work here are fathers, you’ll probably find we are different from your typical “dad blog” and we work to provide information that is quite different from them as well.
- We are not too proud to ask for help. One of the most important things a leader can do is ask others for help because a true leader realizes they can not do everything by themselves. From time to time, we will ask for help – from you – our audience and hope that you will feel comfortable with and trust us enough to possibly provide us with help. If you do not, we hope you will share ideas of what we can do to increase that level of comfort and trust so we can be more effective.
- Finally, we are not professional counselors or therapists. We don’t know of a college or university where you can get a Master’s Degree in Fathering. We have learned all we know from the school of hard knocks, by talking with other dads about their experiences, and searching for wisdom from those men who have gone before us and been successful in their fathering journeys as well.
We understand that men, without proper training, guidance, and wisdom, will normally continue to do things the way they always have or at least, the way they were shown by their fathers. However, we think deep down inside each man comes the desire for greatness and to make a difference somehow, regardless of their past or current circumstances.
We all have 24 hours in the day. How much time and resources have you spent becoming a better father? Have you read one, two or more books about the things that can provide the greatest impact in your life, your family, your legacy? We hope to be able to provide you with some great resources so you can try and reach your full potential too.
