It's a known fact that children learn copying examples. I'm sure that while growing up we've all been told that we were an example and that younger children would mimic our behavours. As parents we get told that we have to set a good example for our children. But how often do we think about the examples we set for our peers? We know that in the work place if we want to teach someone a new program/job the best way is through example and explanations. Have you ever throught though about how much others might be watching our behavours though and learning from them? People are watchers, it's a known fact. We are curious creatures and tend to watch others far more then we might realise. How we behave when we interact with others is closely observed and in many times mimiced too. And the more important our role is within the company the more important our examples are. I know personally I've watched the uppper management I've worked with very carefully. How did they act or react in a certain situation? Was it the best way to handle that situation? Should I try to do the same when faced with the same situation someday in the future? And in the long run it's paid off for me. I've made far fewer mistakes in my dealings with others then I probably would have, simply from following a good example. All that being said though have you ever thought about the example you show to others here on the blog boards? Are we helping others to better themselves or avoid problems? Are we giving good advice? Are we being responsible and mature in our behavour and mannerisms? Are we having fun? Are we bring good topics to light and having adult discussions/debates about them? I've taken the liberty of changing the word "children" to "adults" in Dorothy Law Nolte, PhD's poem "Children learn what they live" as I feel the poem can and should apply to us as well. If adults live with criticism, They learn to condemn. If adults live with hostility, They learn to fight. If adults live with ridicule, They learn to be shy. If adults live with shame, They learn to feel guilty. If adults live with encouragement, They learn confidence. If adults live with tolerance, They learn to be patient. If adults live with praise, They learn to appreciate. If adults live with acceptance, They learn to love. If adults live with approval, They learn to like themselves. If adults live with honesty, They learn truthfulness. If adults live with security, They learn to have faith in themselves and others. If adults live with friendliness, They learn the world is a nice place in which to live. So how do you want to live and how do you want those around you to live. Think about it.
