What's the Best advice you ever got from your Dad?
The best advise/guidance that I have ever received from my dad was the advise to 'maintain a positive mindset no matter the circumstances'.
I've witnessed my dad overcome incredible odds more that once to still be with us today. He's always maintained that you take the "cards you were dealt and you play them the best you can." He continues to be a leader of our family through his attitude and actions today.
He also deadpanned to me as I was leaving to begin my career in Phoenix, "not to take any wooden nickels"! :-)
