Wearing a cape is optional

Wearing a cape is optional

You don’t need superpowers to stand up for what you know is right, maintain your integrity, or be a source of encouragement.

You don’t need superpowers to take the time to truly listen to people, keep your word, or live with honor.

You don’t need superpowers to lead by example or be the change you’d like to see in the world.

And you don’t need superpowers to see that there’s nothing stopping you from doing any of these things.

Wearing a cape is optional.

The results of your actions speak louder than words

The results of your actions speak louder than words

The results of your actions speak louder than words.

You can read a million motivational sayings to pump yourself up — or echo them to others until you’re blue in the face — but that won’t change anything unless you take action and consistently change your behavior.

Don’t just read it or preach it and expect it to make a difference in your life. Knowing something is not enough. Knowing what you should do is not enough. You have to use what you know and take action.

This is the DO in JUST DO IT.

A person of value

A person of value

One adds far more value to their life by contributing something of value to other people’s lives than they do by seeking to benefit only their own.

Collect value by contributing value.

“Try not to become a [person] of success. Rather become a [person] of value.” — Albert Einstein

Success isn’t just about accomplishment

Success isn't just about accomplishment

Success isn’t just about accomplishment. It’s also about how the things you do in your life motivate & inspire others to do something motivating & inspiring in theirs.

It’s about helping people. It’s about adding value to other people’s lives. It’s about making a positive difference, no matter how small.

Success has a lot more to do with what isn’t immediately visible than it does with trophies, awards, wealth, or material things.

Society is influenced by example

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.

About your social media habits…

Lessons Learned from The Path Less Traveled by Zero Dean
