What We Do When No One is Watching

It’s what we do when we think no one is watching that matters.
Because it is in those moments that your character is seen.
It is in those moments that values are lived or hypocrisy comes out to play.
We all know of those in our community who has a public image that doesn’t match the private one.
And while that person may have power and influence, they never inspire.
Leaders inspire others to do better, be better. And to do that requires vulnerability, integrity and humility.
If you want to be better person start with the choices you make when the spotlight isn’t on you.
Catch those moments when you don’t do the right thing and do differently next time.
Do the right thing even when the consequences of not seem trivial.
Live your life as though someone is watching, make choices you would be proud for others to see.
“You should … live in such a way that there is nothing which you could not as easily tell your enemy as keep to yourself.” -Seneca
