I sincerely believe that it is far more beneficial and far less costly to help a child build confidence than it is to fix an adult who has little or none.

Live by example

on July 31, 2014

Actions often speak louder than words.  We can say things to people but if we don’t back them up by our actions, they will have little or no meaning.

Many times our words are empty and they mean absolutely nothing.   We can ask people how they are feeling and not really care what their answer is.  We can tell people we love them and then do things to hurt them.  We can ask someone to meet us for lunch and then not show up.

We need to live by example and show people that we mean what we say.

  • If we ask someone how they feel, we need to stop and look directly into their eyes and listen to their answer.
  • If we tell someone that we love them, we need to act in a loving way and show kindness to them.
  • If we ask someone to meet us for lunch, we need to be there or if there is an emergency, let them know what happened.

People are always watching us, especially our children, and they need a positive role model.  These are the people who teach others by being a good example.

Our actions should always be positive and should match our words.  What kind of example are you to other people in your life?
