Ever wonder whether you are a good example to others? Are you consistent in what you say and do? The saying goes: “your actions speak so loudly I can’t hear what you say”… which means others look at our actions, not just at what we say.
Francis Bacon said:
“It’s not what we eat, but what we digest, that makes us strong;
not what we gain, but what we save, that makes us rich;
not what we read, but what we remember, that makes us learned; and
not what we profess, but what we practice, that gives us integrity.”
He also said: “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 with the other.
As we live life, let’s be consistent with our words and actions. Words are meaningless without the actions to support them, and beautiful when they match our actions.
