Practice What You Preach

Our values dictate our recommendations for our world. When you believe in or have an appreciation for something, you’re likely to share that with others. This sense of pride is associated with being an “adviser”. It is relatively smooth sailing to be an adviser and speak to those with confidence about whatever it is you want to share. In your mind, it can position you higher than your audience and provide this sense of wisdom. It brings great pleasure.

When the tables are turned and you are faced with the words you’ve spoken to your audience, do you follow or fumble? Being a role model of the values you’re trying to teach others is the most powerful way to spread the message, yet it is the most difficult to do.

Follow yourself. Practice what you preach.
