“Don’t tell me what you believe in. I’ll observe how you behave and I will make my own determination.”
Breaking down words into their parts can be enlightening, and offer entirely new perspectives when applying them to our lives.
When we consider “behave”, the initial flavor might carry some sense of moral or upright way of conducting oneself.
Yet, both the Oxford and Cambridge dictionaries define “behave” as “to act or conduct oneself in a specified or particular way”…which has nothing to do with good or bad.
Then, looking further into the parts, we get “be” and “have” which, ordered in that way, carry a richer flavor and more conscious charge for how to live.
Reversing the common idea that when we have this or that (career, life, relationship, bank account, etc) we will then get to be this or that kind of person, as Steven Covey encourages, we begin with the end in mind. First we be. Then we have…even if only in being itself.
What can you be today, coming from have-ing already arrived?
“You can’t sow an apple seed and expect to get an avocado tree. The consequences of your life are sown in what you do and how you behave.”
