Example is not the main thing in influencing others. It’s the only thing. – Albert Schweitzer
The only thing that matters is what you do.
To yourself: Yes, you are watching what you do all the time. To extent that you act in accordance with your Truth, you will build your self-esteem and respect. To the extent you don’t, you will trust and believe in yourself less and less.
To others: Oh boy are people watching what you actually do! You can say whatever you like, but what echoes is what you do. Your actions are the only real currency in life. To the extent you do what say – and do the right thing – you build trust and influence. Act contrary to what you say, what you espouse, and you will lose the confidence of those around you and marginalize yourself over time.
What are you going to do now?
