The best intentions matter little if your daily life doesn’t reflect those values. How can we make sure that they match? Good or bad, your values are shaped by your actions just as much as they do the shaping. Actions that are true to your values build a stronger foundation around them that others can see. Why are the memories of our greatest personal and public heroes so powerful and timeless, long after they’re gone? They stood for something. They were living, breathing examples of the values they prized. It takes courage, a belief in yourself and strong determination. But it can be done. Do one thing today that shows the world what you believe. Do one thing that you know is right. Do one thing that would make your hero smile.
