Everyone has met that one person who tells everyone how they should do something or how they should live their lives, but then that same individual goes out and ignores all of their own teaching!
It’s the PE Teacher who is completely out of shape. It’s the messy parent telling their kid to clean their room. It’s the person who tells their family to stop their crazy spending even when they themselves are so broke that when they go to Kentucky Fried Chicken, they have to lick other people’s fingers!
It’s the proverbial hypocrite. Of course, we all have been a hypocrite at one point in time of our life or another, but I’m talking about consistently making the statement, “Don’t do as I do. Do as I say!”
- Americans You want the country to have a balanced budget? You want the National Debt to stop rising? IT STARTS BY LIVING IT IN YOUR OWN LIFE!
- Parents You want your children to prosper in life and manage their money well? IT STARTS BY LIVING THE PRINCIPLES IN YOUR OWN LIFE!
- Business Owners You want your business to prosper? You want your employees to manage the business money well? IT STARTS BY DOING THE SAME IN YOUR OWN LIFE!
I know I have more than enough times in my life where I have not lived out everything I say I value, but man I am SO GRATEFUL that my bride and I got on the same page financially and took the necessary (and tough) steps to achieve financial freedom.
And here’s the GREAT NEWS – You CAN do it too! That’s why I’ve written all of the books and studies. It’s why I’ve written like crazy on this website for the past five years. It’s why we travel and teach over 50,000 people each year. However we can help you, we want to do it!
How about making 2011 the year of, “Do as I do. Because doing so set me free!”
