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.”


Don’t Overthink


How easy life would be if we had a blueprint of everything expected of us during our lifetime.

We would know what decisions to make, failures to avoid, and successes assured.

If we could predict the future, imagine the life lessons we would miss out on by doing so.

There are many events we will never understand, while other events seem to fall in place as we reflect on them.

Although we experience periods of misunderstanding, there is a greater purpose for our lives.

When you find yourself faced with a matter of great concern and don’t have an immediate solution at hand, take your mind off of the problem for a while.

There are more options available than you think.

Overthinking a problem can cause you to overlook a possible solution because your mind hasn’t had an opportunity to refresh.
