Talk Is Cheap, Can You Walk The Talk?

You might have heard of ‘Talk is cheap’, followed by ‘Actions speak louder than words’ when describing the worth of an individual’s character. It is often always easier to say what you intend to do, and make promises to people, than to actually carry it out and give life to those words.

Many people would have fallen into that trap of making empty promises, or saying things that they didn’t really mean to do. This concept applies to almost every situation in a person’s life, whether it be in romantic relationships, friendships, work or with family.

At work, it might be easy to convince your future employer that you have the qualities and capabilities that he or she is looking for. You may tell your co workers that you work hard and smart.

            But unless your actions match those words, that person will probably not believe you because they simply will not be able to feel the love.

              Lastly, friendships are built out of mutual interest, but what makes friendships last, are the seasons of hardships that friends go through together.

                Be the friend that goes through thick and thin, and not the friend that promised something but ended up bailing.

                  At the end of the day, whatever your actions may be will show what you are trying to prove. If you are simply talking, it can sound convincing in the moment. But what makes your words last and true, is still the hard labor of action.
