We all want our kids, students, employees, and others to be great. To all leaders, parents, coaches, managers, and teachers—is this not true? And why shouldn’t we ask others to be excellent? To be perfect?
What else do you want from them? To be happy, honest, determined, tireless? I am sure there is more on your list. So, make your wish list for others.
Ask yourself, are you this? Are you a shining example of this? Or are you asking work from others without doing the work yourself?
You do not have to be perfect to ask that from others, but, you do need to be on a journey, be honest, be courageous and be humble. You would have to face obstacles, overcome fear, doubt, anxiety and practice virtues to increase your faith.
