Walk the Talk

I’ve been trying to do one new thing daily and so today, instead of Starbucks, I thought I’d try something different. So here I am, at Artisan Roast Cafe with my flat white. It’s pretty good, but I miss my Café Mocha, should have tried their mocha here instead, I guess that’ll have to be another time. By right now, I can say that this place is a nice chill out place for coffee purist, parking was a pain but I finally got a place. It has a very very different feel from Starbucks. But hey, what’s life if we don’t try out new things.

Today’s post revolves around the old saying, “Actions speak louder than words,” and “walk the talk.”

A lot of us talk a good talk but can we deliver? Are our actions in line with our words? Is our video aligned with your audio, as Robin Sharma says.

This is definitely something to think about, don’t say something if you don’t mean it, don’t make promises you can’t keep. You may say something is important to you, but do you actions follow through on it?

I remember this from one of Robin Sharma books, “your schedule doesn’t lie.” you may say that you family is top priority but do you schedule time to spend with them? You may say exercise is important but have you scheduled down workout sessions for the week?

Remember, anyone can talk a good talk, but not everyone can walk the talk. Listen to what you say regularly and ask yourself, do I really mean this? Do I really do these things? Am I just talking utter BS?

This habit is not beneficial to anyone in the long run, to you and your loved ones. You will hurt yourself and them.

Now one of the biggest enemies of walking the talk is procrastination, people have good intentions but good intentions are just that, intentions, and intentions won’t make a differences to anything or none unless they’re translated into action. The way to fight procrastination, start small , just do it and Keep Moving Forward. There are many decisions to make and things to do, just get cracking.

Do you remember what your new year’s resolution was?
When was the last time you made a promise and then didn’t keep it?

Words mean nothing until they become actions, yes words have the power to stimulate action, but they isn’t always the case as you and I both know.

Most of us (notice that i used ‘us’) are all guilty of these things, so here are a couple things to keep in mind that will help rectify this issue, it’s not an instant fix but it’s definitely the right way to go if you, like me, want to kill this habit/practice.

Don’t make promises you can’t keep, make sure your schedule is inline with your priorities or what you say are your priorities & don’t say something if you don’t mean it, if you’re going to say it, make sure you can do it.
