The other day I posed the question, "What if we took the if out of life?" Then proceeded to finish with a joke, "we'd be left with L__E," time to expand on that thought. Should we be able to remove the "what if" from life we'd be left with "living excellence," (L__E). What a grand idea!
"You don't have to be a person of influence to be influential. In fact the most influential people in my life are probably not even aware of the things they've taught me."-Scott Adams
Humans learn best by example. You can speak truth into their lives till your blue in the face from lack of oxygen, but a physical example of what or where they want to be is the best influencer. They are watching you! Remember the popular Nike campaign to "be like Mike?" It inferred if you bought their shoes you could bring your game to the level of Michael Jordan We love to emulate those we respect. How better to influence people than by living excellence? We don't have to be a certified counselor holding diplomas in mentoring and life coaching, just be an example and the rewards you reap from doing the things intentionally for excellence works just fine. If you grow as an individual in a positive direction, you create a vacuum for others to fill. Others will draft in your wake and be sucked toward the path of excellence you've laid before them. An example is a power method of teaching!
