Show, Not Tell

Alicia is a self-proclaimed positive person. Her social media, even her desk, is plastered with quotes such as "No Drama Zone" or "Positive Vibes Only" or "Ignore Negativity and Keep Shining."

But every single time I talk to her, she's spilling the latest gossip or sharing some devastating accident or fatality from the news or complaining about this, that and the other.

I feel drained after each conversation and leaves me wondering where did all the positivity go?

Out the window, I guess.

You may know some people who practice something entirely different from what they preach. Their actions tell the opposite story from the bumper sticker on the back of their car that reads "Think like a proton and stay positive."

If you, your brand, or your business is preaching (fill in the blank), be its first ambassador.


Be the example, not just the promoter.

Do it, don't just say it.

And maybe, just maybe, you don't have to display those sticker quotes anymore. Because you no longer need to be reminded. Because you already are it.
