What do you think of when you hear the word fishing? Do you think of a boring day out on the lake waiting for something to bite? Well when I think of fishing I think of a fun day on the lake catching fish with my dad. My dad has been very inspirational. He has been a very important person in my life because he has taught me not only how to catch all the big fish, but also he has taught me how to live life to the fullest and become successful.
When my dad was young he didn’t have as many electronics as we have today. So what did he spend most of his time doing? Well, my dad spent most of his time fishing or riding bikes with his friends. Since he spent most of his time outside, he would normally ride his bike to the lake and fish. Still today my dad loves to fish, and he goes as often as he can. Life when my dad was young was very similar to today. He enjoyed spending time at the lake with his family, and he still does today.
I bet by now that you think fishing is all my dad does, but to be honest he hardly ever goes fishing. He spends most of his time with his family or at work. My dad works long hours, sometimes all day or night. However, due to his hard work, we have a nice house and food on the table. Most of our money comes from my dad and his hard work. At my dad’s job he has to load trains and trucks with corn and send it off to feeding companies. This is very hard work sometimes because there are often complications with loading trains. My dad’s hard work is one example of how he inspires me.
Everyone has that one person who inspires them. Mine would be my dad. But, who inspires my dad? Well, my dad is inspired by the veterans and the brave soldiers who defend our country. He also got majority of his inspiration from his dad. My dad is very inspiring because of the determination and the hard work he does every day. Someday I hope to be like him.
I have been greatly inspired by many people in my life, but the most inspiring person is my dad. He inspires me because of his hard work and determination. Who knows, maybe someday I can be like my dad.
