YOUR WORDS AND YOUR WORKS MUST MATCH…

It’s Friday… and another work week is almost done. 

Time to get ready for the weekend… while you announce your plans for the next couple of days.

We love to spend our Fridays telling our co-workers what our plans are for the weekend… and on Mondays we share how our weekends actually turned out. 

This also applies throughout life.  People will spend a lifetime announcing…

announcing what they’re going to do… 

announcing what they don’t do…

announcing what they can do…

and often we ‘announce’ so much, that as time goes by… we forget what we say.

But what we don’t realize is that all the people we’re speaking to… never forget what we announce.

Ever had someone tell you what they were planning to do, and the second they turned their head… you knew they weren’t going to do what they said?  If we’re honest with ourselves… we’d admit that we’ve all been guilty at some point in our lives. 

But as we mature…

OUR WORDS AND OUR WORKS MUST MATCH.

You can be the nicest person…

You can be the sharpest person…

You can be the hardest working person…

But if your words don’t match your works…

YOUR RESPECT, YOUR INTEGRITY, YOUR REPUTATION, and everything you claim to stand for…

WILL FOREVER BE IN QUESTION!

This is not about making mistakes, or trying and falling short… because we’ve all done that!

This is about living up to what you proclaim to be verbally.

SO BE CAREFUL ABOUT WHAT YOU ANNOUNCE TO THE WORLD.

BECAUSE SOONER OR LATER…

THERE WILL BE A TIME WHEN YOU WILL HAVE TO BACK IT UP!
