One more thing that keeps me wondering.

When a person opens their mouth to speak and one listens. Why is it that the average person will walk away and never give that statement a chance.

His actions will never produce what his mouth confessed. Why is this?

I often wonder if people realize they constantly boast, brag and make promises that they never produce with a solid action.

Are most humans this shallow or narrow-minded to think that nobody’s paying any attention to what comes out of one’s mouth as well as actions that are either carried out or not. Why?

According to:

“Do you have something you need to do?

Something you have been talking about for a long time?

Why haven’t you done it?

We all like to talk about what we are going to do.

Yet, when it comes to the doing part… we fall short.

We put it off. We hesitate. We come up with excuses.

This is especially true when it comes to our goals and dreams.

Why do we talk, instead of do?

Talking vs. Doing

I recently had a friend ask me about this blog.

“Oh, I could do that.”

“Do what?”

“You know, the blogging thing. I could do that. I have a few ideas. I could make a blog.”

Trying to be supportive, I said, “OK, why don’t you do it then?”

The excuses started flowing… like a fire hose.

“Oh well, you know… I don’t have the time. I haven’t gotten around to it. Actually, it’s not worth my time.”

There is a big difference between saying and doing.

Confusing Activity and Action

Many people think that if they just talk long enough about their dreams, that they will come true.

I guess they think that their goals will just magically happen.

They are confusing activity vs. action.

“Going through the motions of blabbing about your goals is much different that putting that first foot forward and stepping towards your goals.”

Another friend has wanted to write a book for a long time.

My advice is to do it. Don’t make excuses. Don’t put it off.

Just do. Not tomorrow. Today.

Don’t Say It, Just Do

Put your actions where you mouth is.

It doesn’t matter whether you are talking about a project, a hobby, a relationship, or getting in shape.

Don’t talk… do.

Don’t complain… do.

Don’t make excuses… do.

The power is in the doing, not in the talking.

What have you been talking about that you need to be doing?”
