"Your greatest contribution
to helping other people live their destiny
is for you to live your own."
-- Alan Cohen
People and children don't listen to advice very much, but they do pay attention to what people do. They become great imitators. Employees become great imitators of their supervisors and other leaders within a company. This is why I've never thought much of mission statements in general because I've been involved with companies who don't live up to their rhetoric. But, anyone can see what they do and that is what is most important.
Like helping people? Be the best that you can be is great advice. Leading by example is a great strategy.
"What You Do Speaks So Loudly That I Cannot Hear What You Say." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson
Spread Some Joy Today--Don't worry about anyone else. Just be the best you that you can be. That is pure joy.
