We can voice our opinions all day long and it may do us good to do so, but we need to understand that saying our opinion does NOT change someone else’s. Remember the world is changed by your example, not by your opinion.
In teaching, I can mark all a student’s paper with a red pen and give him my opinion on his writing. “Negligent!” “No emotion.” “Incorrect grammar!” “Idea not sufficiently developed.” “Need more elaboration.” But telling him my opinion doesn’t change anything. Instead, if I were to show him an example of what I mean and show him good handwriting, it would have a bigger impact on his handwriting.
In writing, we develop our character’s traits by showing how they respond or act in different situations. The example you set (good or bad) and the actions you take in life are what shows your true character. When you want to develop a believable character, you show it through your example or actions.
Here are 16 quotes which can make us understand that the world is changed by your example, not by your opinion:
