The results of your actions speak louder than words

The results of your actions speak louder than words.

You can read a million motivational sayings to pump yourself up — or echo them to others until you’re blue in the face — but that won’t change anything unless you take action and consistently change your behavior.

Don’t just read it or preach it and expect it to make a difference in your life. Knowing something is not enough. Knowing what you should do is not enough. You have to use what you know and take action.

This is the DO in JUST DO IT.

Talking yourself out of taking action

Talking yourself out of taking action

People sometimes have a tendency to beat down their ideas that they were once enthusiastic about. And as a result, they talk themselves out of taking action on things that could add value to their life. And in place of these ideas, they often do nothing – and so life goes on and nothing much changes.

Before you talk yourself out of things you are enthusiastic about by filling your head with doubt, ask yourself how avoiding fear & uncertainty will ultimately add value to your life. If it won’t, it might be time to consider that facing your doubts & fears is actually something that will still be good for you regardless of the outcome of your endeavor.

Learning to manage one’s time in an efficient manner is one of the most effective ways to free up more time to manage in an efficient manner.

If you want more time to do more things, find ways to make better use of your time. And this begins by making your time a priority in your life.

While, learning to say “No” to people is an important step towards freeing up time, if you don’t follow through by making efficient use of that time – even if that means relaxing – you are wasting it.

Don’t be fooled. There is a difference between wasting time in a way that makes your life enjoyable and wasting time by failing to be mindful of how you’re choosing to spend it.

If you want more time in your day, be mindful of how you spend it.
