“You can say sorry a million times, say I love you as much as you want, say whatever you want, whenever you want. But if you’re not going to prove that the things you say are true, then don’t say anything at all. Because if you can’t show it, your words don’t mean a thing.”– Unknown
Which one of these sentences is harder to say?
- I apologize.
- I need help.
- I love you.
We need to start making these words easier to say. Our world will be better for it.
If you are going to apologize, that doesn’t mean anything if you continue to do what you claim you are sorry for. Offering help doesn’t mean anything if you do not actually provide help. And, saying that you love someone doesn’t mean anything if you do not demonstrate that love.
It is time to show others that your actions support your words. It is time to show others that your words hold muster. It is time to show others that your words have weight. It is time to show others that your word is your bond.
Yes, words have power, but words alone are not enough. We need to start supporting our words with our actions.
Words + Actions Can Make Real Change.
