The results of your actions speak louder than words

The results of your actions speak louder than words.

You can read a million motivational sayings to pump yourself up — or echo them to others until you’re blue in the face — but that won’t change anything unless you take action and consistently change your behavior.

Don’t just read it or preach it and expect it to make a difference in your life. Knowing something is not enough. Knowing what you should do is not enough. You have to use what you know and take action.

This is the DO in JUST DO IT.

A person of value

One adds far more value to their life by contributing something of value to other people’s lives than they do by seeking to benefit only their own.

Collect value by contributing value.

“Try not to become a [person] of success. Rather become a [person] of value.” — Albert Einstein

Success isn’t just about accomplishment

Success isn’t just about accomplishment. It’s also about how the things you do in your life motivate & inspire others to do something motivating & inspiring in theirs.

It’s about helping people. It’s about adding value to other people’s lives. It’s about making a positive difference, no matter how small.

Success has a lot more to do with what isn’t immediately visible than it does with trophies, awards, wealth, or material things.

Society is influenced by example

People are influenced by example. Years of bad behavior on reality TV, abusive internet comments, a focus on superficiality & fame, and a lack of ethics, logic, empathy & emotional intelligence in leadership roles have all played their part in giving people permission to imitate.

A little more

We could all use a little more compassion, a little more empathy, a little more kindness, and little more love. Let’s make 2019 a year where we all put in a little more effort to give a little more of all the things we could all use a little more of.

Talk is cheap

talk-is-cheap-zero-dean-couple

How do you show people that you mean what you say? That you can be trusted? That you have a good heart and character? The key is in the word “show”. You show who you truly are by what you consistently do. And when your actions are congruent with your words.

Talk is cheap. Don’t just say you care about something. Don’t just say you believe in a cause or a way of life. Take action and show it. And remember to show what you believe in when it matters, not just when it’s in your own best interest.

The true measure of a man is how he treats someone who can do him absolutely no good.” — Samuel Johnson
