George Santayana once said;family is one of nature’s masterpieces. It’s the masterpiece that you paint with colors of love, joy and care. Being someone who practices gratitude, Eric Gallite is most thankful for having a having kind and loving family. Since his childhood, he has been blessed with a family that supports him in both peaks and valleys, and loves him unconditionally. He knows that no one in this world can love you as selflessly as your family does which is why to him, family is everything.
A busy man like Eric, who is handling two companies at once, always makes sure to find time for his family regularly. His priorities are straight and he knows his family comes first. His motivation to work hard and strive to grow more is because of his family.
Blood is Above Everything Else:
Eric believes that the people you share your blood with, are the ones always rooting for you, no matter which part of the world they are in, they are closer than you might think. Granted, every family has differences, especially between brothers as most of the guys are hotheaded, but they have each other’s back too; it’s an unsaid norm.
Eric’s early life was very pleasant, he had a very loving family, and Eric and his three siblings were dearly loved by their parents. Eric would frequently spend time with his dad watching football and it was a time he cherished the most. The family values he learned from his father stayed with him till he started his own.
Eric now has two buys; Winston and Viktor and he loves them with all of his heart. He also has two pets; Juni the cat and Tank the puggabull, they are like family too.
Family is Your Backbone in Life:
One thing that Eric has learned in his life, is that nobody, and I repeat, nobody cares what happens in your life. Yeah, there will be people cheering when you have achieved success but what about the times when your back was against the wall? That’s when people are tested, and that’s when your family is your strength. Maybe your siblings are busy in their life and are not aware of what’s going on with you, and that’s okay, but your parents, your spouse and kids are going to be the cushion that you can fall on.
They will be your support system when life knocks you down and that’s enough of the reason to put them before anything or anyone else. Eric is one of the self-made businessmen, so he has come a long way from having very little to having multiple companies. When there was nothing, he had his family that loved him dearly, and now when he has a lot of things, he still has his family that cares for him.
The lesson is; no matter you are rich or poor or just getting by, time doesn’t stay the same, but your family is one thing that sticks by you and supports you. They are with you when life knocks you down, they are there when you are struggling and that’s why they deserve to be before anything else, especially when you are successful.
