Day 20. The Golden Rule -- Always In Fashion

I write a monthly newsletter for business women. It has a short column entitled Lead by Example in which I highlight a principle or characteristic upon which Mary Kay Ash built her life and company. I recently did a piece about her simple belief in the Golden Rule -- Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Or, as we'd say it in our modern vernacular, treat others the way you want to be treated.

Mary Kay believed if we will truly live by the Golden Rule in our actions and even in our thoughts, then our lives will take on new meaning, as will the lives of those around us. She felt that this way of life brings people, dreams and things into proper perspective, and she made it the framework for all her actions and decisions, even her possessions.

It has been said that Mary Kay Ash was a role model par excellence. She used to say, "God first, family second, business third". She lived authentically from her heart -- bringing light and hope and beauty to others. That's a dream I have for my own life. Not to build a business in cosmetics, but to be a role model for other women who may struggle to find their own path of beauty and purpose.

As women, we can spend a lot of time wondering about whether or not our wardrobe is in season. Fortunately, we never have to worry when we live by the Golden Rule... it's always in season and it's a beautiful way to make a beautiful fashion statement.

Wishing you a beautiful day,
