“Faith Without Hard Work Is Dead”

Do not expect success to come to you. If you want to be successful, if you want to grow, you must go after it. Do not just sit and wait for things to change in your life. They won’t change. Because nothing happens without action.

And if you want to know what you can do, you must test yourself. You must put yourself to the test. Because you do not know what you can do until you test yourself.

Life is simple. By your actions, you either go forward or backward. By your actions, you either grow or die. By your thoughts, by your actions, you either expand or shrink. That is why you should always pay attention to how you live your life.

It is okay to dream. But a dream without action is a dead dream. A life without movement is a dead life. A person who is not growing is dying.

No matter what you want, if you want it to work, you must take action. You must do something about it. Tyler Perry says, “Faith without hard works is dead. You can’t sit around saying to yourself, “I want to get rich,’ or “I want my business to be successful,” or “I want my family to feel loving,” and then do nothing about it.”

If you want things to work for you, say to yourself, “I can. I will. and I Must.” Yes, you can. Yes, you will. And yes, you must.

The Power Of A Good Example

If you want people to follow you, do not tell them what you can do, show them what you can do. People believe in actions. They want to see actions. Because actions matter. If you don’t have the courage to do what you say you are going to do, then stop talking.

As the old saying goes, “Do not tell me what you can do, show me what you can do.” So if you want people to believe in you, especially in difficult times, you must show them what you can do.

Annd Frank once said, “We all know that a good example is more effective than advice. So set a good example, and it won’t take long for others to follow.”

As a leader, if you want your people to follow you, don’t tell them what you can do, just show them what you can do.

Why? Because people follow actions, not words. Because actions matter.
