People who are good at what they do don’t have to tell you

How a person behaves & what they do is far more reflective of the truth than what they say.

Strong leadership & caring for others involves a lot more than simply stating you care for others.

People who are good at what they do don’t have to tell you — they show it.

If you now lack confidence that your elected officials are working 100% for the people they are responsible for leading, protecting, and representing — this is why it’s important to vote for competent people who do more than just try to personally benefit from their position.

Be the one.

Ideally, we could all go through life without the need for any support other than our own. But the fact is, having the support of — and being encouraged by — just one person can make even extreme challenges much easier to bear.

Be that one person for as many people as possible.

Reducing bad behavior

If you wish to reduce bad behavior, it has to start with you, not the person who you think is behaving badly.

Responding disrespectfully to someone who is acting poorly just leaves the world with another badly behaving person. You must set the example you want to see.

Acting badly because someone else is acting badly is not an excuse to act badly. You are responsible for your behavior no matter what other people are doing.

Strive to set an example you will be proud of no matter how you are feeling and no matter who sees it.

There’s no one way

There's no one way

There’s no one way to reach people that is both effective and makes everyone happy. There’s no one way to teach a lesson. There’s no one way to try to make a positive difference in someone’s life.

What one person finds annoying, preachy, or heavy-handed, another is thankful for. What one person considers common sense, another is contemplating for the first time.

Just because some people don’t appreciate your efforts doesn’t diminish the fact that others do.

Just because your attempts at making a positive difference in the world are not appreciated by everyone doesn’t mean that you should stop trying.
