Leadership by example

The most effective leadership is leadership by example. The most effective persuasion is persuasion that’s based upon your own behavior.

When you seek to influence others in their actions, first take those actions yourself. Live what you advocate, when others are watching, and even when they are not.

Your most powerful, credible statements are not made with words. They come from the deeds you do.

People are quick to discount, disbelieve and ignore what you say. It’s much more difficult for anyone to ignore what you actually do.

Live what you advocate, consistently, in all different situations. Live what you advocate, especially when it is not the easiest choice.

Know that every choice is an opportunity to set a positive example. Live what you advocate and you will be a leader, respected, credible, influential and highly effective at lifting up all of life.
