Motivational Quote - What you do speaks so loudly that I cannot hear what you say.

SparkPeople's Comments

Do you back up what you say and what you believe in with your actions? Most of us find sometime during the day that this is not the case. We find ourselves doing or saying something that does not agree with our values or purpose. This is something we can work on, just a little each day, to get better and better.

I love that quote and try to live by it....I write a health and fitness motivational blog....but it's also very important for people to see me in the gym, in fitness classes, attending my weight loss meetings amped getting weighed in. If I'm going to talk the talk....I have to walk the walk. Below is part of a poem called "Sermons I See" by Edgar Guest. His words say it so well?

I soon can learn to do it
     if you'll let me see it done;
I can watch your hands in action,
     but your tongue too fast may run.
And the lecture you deliver
     may be very wise and true,
But I'd rather get my lessons
     by observing what you do;
For I might misunderstand you
     and the high advice you give,
But there's no misunderstanding
     how you act and how you live."


from Collected Verse of Edgar Guest
NY:Buccaneer Books, 1976, pg. 599

Isn't this the same as the phrase, "Actions speak louder than words."?

As St. Paul tells us " I do that what I do not want to do, and that that I want to do , I do not".
