“LEAD BY EXAMPLE.”
That’s something I’ve been brought up with my entire life. My dad used to say that to me all the time when I was playing basketball, on the track team, and on student council as a teen.
I carried that quote into my young adult life and now into motherhood. It’s so true. In order to lead others…you have to do it by example.
Be an example to others on how to be healthy and fit. Be an example on how a business should be run. Be an example of what a true leader looks like in the workplace. Be an example of how a wife/mother/husband/brother/sister/daughter/son should be in relation to others. Be an example of a good friend. The list goes on and on.
But in this instance, as a mother…I need to lead my children by example. Not just by how they should grow up to be, but lead them in faith and in love. And lead them down the right path to being healthy, strong, and successful.
I want my son to know I did everything I could to stay healthy for him and for myself so I can stay on this earth long enough to see him grow. And although this was a serious kind of post, the video is just so dang cute!
You never know who is watching and you never know who you’re influencing by the choices you make.
He loves Shakeology® too, apparently!!! I guess we are doing something right!
