Walk the Talk
Each of us knows that if we sincerely want to make our lives better we must be willing to make a commitment to improvement, and be willing to change the way we do things. We discuss what is others have done to create success. We talk about what we need to do to make it happen. But what happens when we actually walk the talk? In some cases we experience success, in others failure.
“Ideas not coupled with action never become bigger than the brain cells they occupied.”
Arnold H. Glasgow
There is no question that the mere prospect of failing, making mistakes, or looking bad scares away a lot of people. It is easier to talk about what they could be achieved rather than taking action to make it actually happen. The truth is there are always risks involved whenever you take a chance, but there are even more risks if you don't. The truly successful don’t sit around and just talk about what they would like to accomplish. They have learned through experience that they can overcome any potential risk by walking the talk and giving it everything they have. Their commitment and conviction overpowers any obstacle they encounter.
“As I grow older, I pay less attention to what people say. I just watch what they do.”
Are you willing to walk the talk in order to live your life to its fullest? How will you ever know how good it can be if you never show the courage to give it your best shot? Strive to continually improve. Make a commitment to achieve. Most importantly, be willing to walk the talk and create the life you desire.
