Put Your Thoughts into Action

Thoughts only have impact when put into action

Your actions, not your thoughts, impact others. Good intentions mean nothing without action.

Especially in the social media realm, many people proclaim their opinions without needing to support what they say. We all have the power to say whatever we want with the tap of our thumbs, but the key to helping people and solving problems isn’t saying something that sounds good. Instead we should be intentional with personal relationships, listen and help when they’re ready for it.

Believe me, as a motivational speaker, listening and waiting is often really hard. Sometimes I’d love to change a person’s behavior if I could. But my job is to inspire change, not force it. I give others the tools to help themselves, and when I get to see the transformation, it’s incredibly encouraging.

The key to helping others is to be sincere and helpful. I really care about helping people becoming the best version of themselves. I’m by no means perfect, but I have a passion for coaching others that translates to action, and I believe in the words I say. I’ve seen people’s lives changed after they’ve applied my advice and it feels great to be a part of genuine change based on actions rather than just words.

Anyone can resolve to do something, but until they believe they can, set up goals to change their day and actually get started doing them, words mean nothing. Saying you’re going to quit smoking or exercise doesn’t make you change. Believing that you can change and planning how you will followed by taking the first step does.

The hardest part is getting started. The rest is just overcoming inertia.

Good Intentions Are Nothing without Action

  It isn’t enough to just think about doing something. You have to follow through

doing something. You have to follow through

Maybe you really intended to do the right thing, but life isn’t about what you’re meant to do, it’s about what you do. No matter what you’re intentions, if you don’t act on them, then you haven’t really done anything.

Other people don’t know what’s in your head. And even if you tell them you hope to do something nice, it won’t really mean much if you don’t follow through. In fact, if you get in the pattern of saying you’ll do something, and then not doing it, you will lose trust and will come to be known as unreliable.
People generally don’t remember your words that much, or even your actions. They will remember how you made them feel. And if they always felt let down or disappointed, that is what they will take away from your relationship.

Be who you want to be, and follow through with your good intentions. Then you will be remembered as the person who was always there for a friend, or the hard worker people could always count on at work. It is far preferable to be a person of favorable action than a person who thought about doing responsible things.
