I find it amazing when a person who himself cannot perform a task, inspires another to perform it.

The body is endowed with strength.
If one can not harness it fully, only then does it make sense to use another person's strength to execute any work.
An old man can tell a young one, "Work hard, it is good for your health."
But this principle can not be applied in the context of conduct.
A big time gambler used to tell young children not to gamble; not fall into its trap.
An hour later he himself would go back to the gambling den.
What will be the effect of his advice, I cannot tell.

Moral education has an effect only when the conduct and behaviour of the person who advises,
is in keeping with the values contained in his advice.
