A thousand words will not leave so deep an impression as one deed. – Henrik Ibsen
I’ve often gotten the parenting advice – “more is caught than taught”.
Our actions ring much louder than anything we say. We develop a respect for those in our lives that consistently act in a certain way.
I believe this is a mostly involuntary process.
Meaning we catch the habits and traits of those around us whether we want to or not.
Hang out with a bunch of losers….you’re going to catch some loser habits.
Hang out with a bunch of winners…you’re going to catch some winner habits.
Be careful who you spend time with and how much time you spend with them.
Be on the lookout for mentors that have arrived where you want to go.
Avoid the people who have ended up where you don’t want to go.
Make it a great day.
