The Unlimited Potential Show I Relatable Self Development

Jun 16, 2021

Today’s episode hits home for us, with Father’s day coming up we wanted to do an episode specifically for all the dads out there. Over the past few years, we both learned firsthand that being a dad is one of the toughest challenges, and most of the time it’s hard to make sure we’re doing the right thing. However, to say raising kids is all bad would be wildly inaccurate. 

The truth is, we will never truly understand exactly how important and impactful it is for us to parent our children. The choices our kids make, the careers they choose, what they dream about at night, the friends they make and everything in between is dictated by what we do and say as Dads. 

You may read that and your chest starts to get tight and you think...what if I mess them up? 

The pressure can start to set in quickly, right? We totally understand. That is why today we want to reframe or maybe rewire your thoughts around parenting and being a Father. 

Welcome back to The Unlimited Potential Show, our guest today is Blake Brewer, CEO and founder of The Legacy Letter Challenge. He is a father on a mission to help 1 million dads be more successful with their kids by writing Legacy Letters. You’ll hear how The Legacy Letter challenge got started, and how the worst day of Blake’s life created a passion for helping dad’s connect and inspire their children. 

Listen in as Blake talks about his own dad and the impact he made in Blake’s life by writing a letter filled with love, advice, and encouragement that would bring comfort in the most painful time of life. You will learn about the true importance of Fatherhood, the one thing your kid may need to hear from you and more. By the end you will know how you can write your own legacy letter, and leave a lasting impression on your kids that will have them feeling loved and understood even after you’re long gone. 

Disclaimer: Everyone in the family is welcome in this episode! You don’t have to be a Dad to be impacted by Blakes story. The last thing we will say is this episode gets emotional at times as Blake shares the story of when his dad passed. If you have recently lost a loved one and this hits a little too close to home, we encourage you to dive into our past episodes and come back to this one when you are ready.
