Dr. Covey actually has 8 habits!! The 8th is to find your voice and to inspire others to find theirs. You can't lead if you don't model the behavior that you wish to see. You must be doing the positive stuff in your life and be disciplined enough that when people see it they respect you more. Mind over matter and mind over mattress are key things to remember. You have a choice every day to be disciplined and you can make a change by deciding what you will do and won't do. People see this even when you think that they don't or when you think they aren't watching. They see the little things you do that are disciplined. You must be able to grow teacher leaders and sometimes leaders lead and sometimes they follow. In the following video, Stone shows that he lives what he preaches. You can tell people the right way to live but your actions must hold true to the message. Stone preaches love and forgiveness but more importantly he shows love and forgiveness in his actions every day. Lead by example and if necessary use words.
