Chapter 8, Page 27, Book 17

Be an example…
show kindness to unkind people.
Forgive people who don’t deserve it.
Love unconditionally.
Your actions always reflect who you are.

In the grand scheme of things…

A good example is the best sermon. 

Benjamin Franklin

Being a good example is behaving in a positive manner. Leading your life in a good way creates a scenario that others will most likely want to copy. For example, when parents demonstrate leadership, strength, guidance and responsibility, their children will absorb the good behavior. At least we hope so.

People watch what you do more than they listen to what you say.  I’ve learned that people don’t care about how much you know, until they know how much you care. A genuinely good character always shines and inspires in the long run.  

We make people feel important, and inspire them by showing them that they are.  People will rarely remember what you did, but they will always remember how you made them feel.    

In the end, act as if what you do is important.  It is !

If you can’t be a good example, then you’ll just have to serve as a horrible warning.

Old Mr. Franklin was sure right!
... Regretfully, there were parts of my past I could identify with what Ms. Aird had to say.

People are always watching (and listening). I hope you're enjoying a sweet eve!


setting a good example is often difficult to do. "People watch what you do more than they listen to what you say. "
