Actions over words. I try to live by every day. Our actions are our truth; our words are ideas that we believe in our head. But too many people are stuck in their heads, telling themselves a false narrative.
Meditate on what’s right, repeat positive words on how you want your life to look like, put into action what you want, and watch the rewards come to fruition.
Be mindful the same will occur when we are petty and negative.
Remember always ACTIONS over WORDS
My Story: In 2019, I was searching high and low for the best way to get into a certification course (I won’t get into specifics). But I wasn’t accepted into the program because I didn’t pass the entrance exam. That didn’t stop me, I went to a seminar in early 2020 at another location that didn’t require an entrance exam, and now I was determined to take this course. How would I pay for this course? I had no idea; maybe I get a second job or apply for a grant.
A month later, my job announced the same course would be offered for free because the corporation was awarded a grant. I applied right away, took an exam, and was accepted into the program. Excited and relieved is how I felt because I wouldn’t need to speed $5k on this program, and now my director would see my efforts to grow with the Corp.
When the course began, I started getting these negative thoughts, “I’m not good enough,” “I’m in over my head, who do I think I am.” My professor was encouraging throughout the course and kept a very positive outlook for everyone in the program. And before you know it, I completed the program and unexpectedly became valedictorian.
All this to say, I put action into words. I told my director and supervisor, and other colleagues about my interest in learning new skills, and I did the work necessary to get what I said in words I wanted.
Your life is your story, don’t let others write it for you!
