Becoming a living example.
The man who wants to earn a lot of money, but who has not prepared himself to do it, will not achieve it until he does. The parent who wants the love of his children, but who has not earned it, will never get it, and should not seek it. The man who wants higher wages and shorter hours without an increase in his contribution or service is only, over the long haul, kidding himself. He will end by paying the higher wages he seeks himself. (Earl Nightingale)
