    first but when he or she sees the positive impact it has on his or her children he or she will support it as well Tweet Leadership Legacy in Fatherhood Posted on March 28 2011 by Marcus Brown JD Leave a Comment My brothers it s about leadership and legacy Yes we fathers know that mothers are naturally gifted with the greatest share of influence over our children Yet enough research suggests that the existence of a father in the home or life of a child counteracts many negative external forces in a child s development and enhances the positive So why are so many of us absent physically mentally emotionally spiritually My brothers it s about leadership and legacy Are we not committed to this cause Admittedly a lot of times the selfishness in us do so only if we see direct gain from it But we ll assume the positive here So if we are genuinely committed how do we ensure our contributions are positive read as intentional consistent relevant By action From my perspective the keys to success that must be revisited with frequency are communication quality time role modeling personal development and we must be ready to lead our families in all of them For all the successful ventures that we claim it is our obligation to ensure and there are many the success of our families cannot be subject to the shifting demands of the day it must remain priority 1 It is this type of success that creates legacy in the positive sense it is the same that neglect can turn in reverse Which legacy will you leave If success is our goal it will not be accomplished by mere existence it cannot be accomplished by sheer will Fatherhood must be approached with the same vigilance used in our pursuit of career competitive hobby or personal development It demands leadership vision and commitment As such time must be devoted to it it must be researched and strategized and it must be subjected to consistent practice We read instruction manuals for our new gadgets We scour the internet to make informed retail purchases We consume volumes of quips and quotes seeking inspiration and images in pursuit of fitness goals But can you recall the last thing you voluntarily read about fatherhood parenting When was the last time you considered a new method for communicating a life lesson to your child Or better yet when was the last time you actually tried a new method As we grow older the years seem to pass quicker Our absence in any form will not slow the growth of our children the building of our legacy only alter it So if we ve committed to leadership to fatherhood let s make sure our tool box is always full and let s not be afraid to use it I ve got a legacy to leave don t you A lion rises in the morning knowing it must be faster than
