Society is influenced by example

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

People are influenced by example. Years of bad behavior on reality TV, abusive internet comments, a focus on superficiality & fame, and a lack of ethics, logic, empathy & emotional intelligence in leadership roles have all played their part in giving people permission to imitate.

Personal responsibility is a sign of confidence

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

Don’t know something? Admit it
Make a #mistake? Own it & don’t make it someone else’s #problem
Make a mess? Clean it
Affect someone in a way you didn’t intend? #Apologize

#Personalresponsibility & #confidence aren’t signs of #weakness or #insecurity. Quite the opposite actually

Imagine if making a difference was more valued than likes

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean

#ImagineIf more people stopped seeking a constant stream of #likes & #shares and instead started working for the far more significant & much more uncommon, “#Thanks I really needed that today.”

Making a positive difference in 1 person’s life is far more fulfilling than 1k likes.

I don’t like pop-ups. But the fact is, they get people’s attention. And here’s the deal, I want your email address. But rather than put a form here that 99.9% of people ignore, I want to provide you with a link that tells you exactly why I want your email address.

I promise it’s not a waste of your time. But if you suspect it is, I get it. (I’ve been tricked before, too).
