What Is Behavior Modeling?


  • Modeling is what we are doing with our behaviors, our words, our actions, and our thoughts. Those thoughts turn to reality and then to action.
  • Be conscious and careful of what you model. Others do what you do; not what you say.  A person in a position of authority, influence or leadership must be careful of what he/she models because that modeling will come back.  Model to be the best, and you’ll find opportunities open up to you.
  • Modeling can be generational. Sometimes, the modeling we get from parents, friends or relatives is what they have been brought up with. They don’t know what they don’t know.
  • Be cognizant to develop character and its content to make quality decisions on the modeling you’re going to follow. Make sure that it is positive modeling.  That it will propel you to your dreams and goals.
  • Model to others. Lead others through your modeling. Sculpt the world for others to see.
  • Be certain to model the right process and the right projections to others and receive the right ones. Reject modeling that you don’t agree with or that is inappropriate.
