Everything I Ever Needed to Know I Learned from Mr. Rogers [View all]

Someone once asked me if I could “model” myself after anyone who would it be? After thinking about it, I said, “Fred Rogers.”

Now, THAT got a laugh.

But the reason is simple. Fred Rogers did what most people dream of: he spent his life doing the things he loved and at the same time made a positive impact on millions of people. And he did it in an honest way without changing who he was (and by all accounts he was just the same off-camera that he was on-camera).

Who could ask for more?

But even more, I figure that I pretty much learned everything I needed to know from Mr. Rogers.

Fred Rogers and his TV show Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood taught me more about life than most of those self-help guru/scammers out there. And he did it for free!

So, what did I learn? These are just some of the lessons I learned from Mr. Rogers.

“If only you could sense how important you are to the lives of those you meet; how important you can be to people you may never even dream of. There is something of yourself that you leave at every meeting with another person.”

Margaret Thatcher could have learned a million things from Fred Rogers.

If she did, then the whole world would not be going out of its way to piss on her grave.
