The first of the 7 seeds is the "Seed of Modeling". What we do in front of others is more important than, what we say in front of others. Perhaps you have heard, "Children learn what they see not what you say"? Either way what we model in front of our children when they are young, is what we will see in them when they are old.
Every time we say, or do something, we take another seed and put it into the soil of another persons life. Advertisers count on this. The media sales commercials based on this. "Monkey see-monkey do." We may not be monkeys but the same principle works. You may not have wanted popcorn, but once you see the previews at the movie theatre, have you ever gotten up and went to get some?
It matters what you do. Someone is watching you all the time.
