Lead By Example

You can either be part of the problem or part of the solution. Leading by example earns you the right to be heard because your actions reinforce what you speak. Those closest to you often emulate what you do, so if you desire for someone to behave a certain way, don’t be the double standard. Francis Bacon once remarked “He that gives good advice, builds with one hand; he that gives good counsel and example, builds with both; but he that gives good admonition and bad example, builds with one hand and pulls down the other.”
