Doing the Right Thing

I appreciate creative use of various mediums. One medium that can be very well used is commercials. Last evening I saw a Liberty Mutual Commercial about doing the "right thing". I then did a little research and found there is more than one ad such as this with the same theme. Example:

What these commercials demonstrate is how one person's "right" actions influence others that are witnesses to this simple act. It is kind of a Pay it Forward type of thing where one person helps a stranger in some way, someone else sees it and then they are inspired to help someone else, and so on and so on.

This is the type of leadership that comes from a very authentic place of heart. How powerful. We are always having an impact. We never know when someone is observing our actions or listening to our words. Although not showy or dramatic, the result can be long lasting, touching someones life in a very powerful way.

There are opportunities every day to be a leader in this way. I encourage you to be aware for those times that you can do "the right thing".
