MostInfluence on My View of the World

Formost people, family carries the largest influence in their lives andin shaping their view of life and it is no different for me1.The most significant influence in my life is my father. From the timeI was a toddler I always thought my dad was the smartest andstrongest man in the world. As I grew my thinking changed and Irealize my father is neither of the two, but he is still my greatestinfluence. The very first memory of my dad is when I was still achild on my first day of school. I remember crying so as not to go toschool but my father told me that I needed to go to school so as tobecome smart like him and from that day onwards I have loved schooland studies.

Growingup my father was never a religious man but believed in God and alwaysprayed before retiring to bed. Ever since I can remember I have onlyattended church occasionally but I always make a small prayer beforesleeping. I have no doubt that I acquired this characteristic from myfather. My father was never an athletic person, but he loved to playbasketball on weekends2.From the time I was able to walk correctly, I remember shooting hoopswith him on Saturday evenings. The love for the sport has been withme ever since. I enjoy watching a game of basketball on televisionwith friends or with my father. I also play the occasional game onweekends and enjoy every minute of the match3.I cannot say that I am my father or that I am exactly like him, butthere is no doubt in my mind that he has played the most significantrole in influencing my view of the world.
