Are you walking your talk? Are you doing what you say you will do? Are you following through on your promises?
It is easier to talk than to walk. It is easier to promise than to follow through on your promises.
It is dangerous to promise and not follow through. Walking your talk is the foundation of trust. If you do what you say you want to do, people will trust you. But if you say one thing and do another, people will never believe anything that comes out of your mouth.
To build trust and stable relationships, you must learn how to discipline yourself. Don’t promise what you don’t have. Don’t promise what you cannot do. If you promise people something and you couldn’t do it, let them know why.
Walking your talk means you have to be consistent in your actions. Do what you want others to do. Do what you say you will do. If you do it, the people around you will do the same.
There is no perfect time to start something. The right time to start anything is now. If not now, when?
If you want to start something, don’t wait for the perfect time to come. There is no perfect time to do anything. The perfect time is now, not tomorrow, not next week, not next month, not next year. If you don’t do it now, when are you going to do it.
If you don’t take action to change your life, if you don’t take action to change your situation, your life will never change. You are the only person who can change your life. Dan Millman said, “The time is now, the place is here. Stay in the moment. You can do nothing to change the past, and the future will never come exactly as you plan or hope for.”
Yes, you can’t change the past, but you can do a lot of things to shape your future. You can shape your future if you want to. You can do it by taking the right actions today. You can change your future by paying attention to the things that you are doing now. Don’t waste your time with negative, unproductive people. They will ruin your life for you.
If you don’t plan for tomorrow, you will not have tomorrow. If you don’t plant the right seeds today, you will not reap the right fruits tomorrow.
You can do it. You are the only one who can make your life better. Start small. Take baby steps. Do one thing at a time. Meet with the people who can change your life, and stay away from those who can’t.
Don’t wait for the perfect time. According to Arthur Ashe, “Start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.”
