More Action Lest Talk

Year 2007 is coming to an end and whether we like it or not, year 2008 will arrive like a breeze. Reviewing my activities for the year shows that there are still many things I wish I had done in the year. I didn’t match my actions totally with my words. One thing that became obvious to me in the course of the year is that most of the people around me, whether family or strangers, are talkers.

Talkers are those people that have great ideas or great intentions, but just never follow through 100% on their beliefs. I have been a talker many times in my life, whether it’s through eating right, exercising, meeting a deadline. One of the areas I have seen people do the most talking and have not follow through is diet and exercising. These are the diet hoppers who bounce from 1 diet to the next only to start a new one weeks later. The same goes for exercising, picking a new job or starting that [tag]business[/tag].

Anyone can be a talker, but to make a change in your life, you need to take solid action and follow through 100%. If you don’t, you will never see the results that are ultimately in your grasp.

I often will say:

Yea, I am really going to get into exercising this week or I am going to start business next week

Do I ever follow through? NO.

If you want to be a talker your whole life, then that is your prerogative, but unfortunately you will probably lose the confidence in yourself along with the backing of friends and family. People will see through you given enough time if talking is all you are capable of.

Take one aspect of your life, just one, that you have a problem in completing, whether it’s family life, dieting, exercising, [tag]finances[/tag], or anything else and take a stand. Follow through 100% with the task and see the results you are looking for. It IS possible; it just takes effort and patience. It is high time you changed your motto…More Action Less Talk (MALT).
