A Son Never Forgets


A few days ago I posted a photo taken in Belgium of myself with my parents on Facebook, along with the description “ASNF”.

This comes from one of my favourite movies, Men of Honour, where the insignia ASNF stands for “A Son Never Forgets”.

At the time this picture was taken, I remember thinking that although my parents have aged, although they are no longer as useful to me as they once were, although they have now retired and are no longer earning an income, although they are probably not feeling as powerful as they used to be…to me they are forever the most powerful figures, for they have shaped my life into what it is today.

A son’s true inheritance lies between his two ears, that is, the education and values that have been imparted upon him by hard-working parents. And that inheritance is priceless.

There isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t feel some sense of gratitude for what they have allowed me to become.

In that respect, a son never forgets.

Last Thursday, at a conference, I spoke about results and day-off. Got so many calls since. Why such a level of interest? Maybe something important to many salespeople...

It is important to look after team. Treat them as if they are 'volunteers'. After all, they spend more time around us than their family.

Leaders must prepare your team for a great year. What was to them only a few hours of material took me four weeks of heavy focus. Along the way, I had to sacrifice time with my family. I guess you cannot ask people to give it their best if you don't.

Some amazing exams being done here. Unless your team is on their game, clients lose. I am always in awe when I see people giving their best. With Grce and Haydon, I feel safe. #wiseberry https://t.co/ftbPYKrXzI thomaslehoang photo

I can only hope with all my heart that I have done more than enough to deserve that my children speak and think the same kind of things in my living years. Parenthood, a tough responsibility, yet beautiful opportunity. https://t.co/jp7ZpV0tDE thomaslehoang photo
