Weekend Short: Can You Walk the Talk?

“If you are given a chance to be a role model, I think you should always take it because you can influence a person’s life in a positive light, and that’s what I want to do.  That’s what it’s all about.”

It’s a great quote, but when you realize who said the words they border on being meaningless.  In fact, as poignant a statement as it is, the real meaning is completely lost on what became the brunt of some of Jay Leno’s best jokes.

So, the thought for this Saturday morning goes back to an expression  my grandmother used, “Practice what you preach!”  We all have new expectations, new energy and a new level of hope for 2013.  It’s actually my favorite time of year, when just the anticipation of what’s going to happen next creates energy.

Whatever your dreams and goals are for this year, tackle them with commitment! Don’t compromise and don’t do anything half-  Be true to yourself, your aspirations, your friends and your clients.

Who gets credit for the opening quote?  Tiger Woods, who as the greatest golfer of all time, has learned that it’s a whole lot harder to walk the talk than the back nine at Augusta!
