What Example Are You Setting?

One Man Helps Another

We all are just going along, doing our thing, living our lives.

And out of the blue, someone comes along and says, “Love reading your work.”

It stopped me dead in my tracks.

I literally don’t have the words. Other than, “Thank you so much, your words me a lot to me.”

It’s simple things like that, that make me want to be a better man.

You never know who is watching what you do. You never know what example you are setting for someone else. You never know who is looking up to you.

Until something like that happens.

Life is such a dichotomy.

On one hand, no one cares what you do. They aren’t watching, they are too busy being caught up in their own world, doing their own thing.

But on the other hand, they are watching, they do notice, and what you are saying and doing can make a powerful impact.

Keep this dichotomy in mind as you go about your daily life. No one is watching, and yet they are. No one cares, but they do.

Don’t worry about seeking approval, do you. Do your thing. Realize that someone is watching. Someone is learning from you. Someone is exemplifying you. Someone is emulating you. Someone wants to be like you.

Be that role model.

Be you.
