Today’s #MondayMotivation quote from Benjamin Franklin is a strong piggyback off of this previous post about actually executing your dreams and plans.
In life, your word is bond. Or at least it should be. When you promise someone you’re going to do something, unless something big comes up, you ought to follow through. Even more important, I’ve realized, when you promise YOURSELF you’d do something, you ought to find a way to make it happen. Words are just words…plans are just plans. It’s the follow through that stands out. It’s the completed work that gets you ahead. It’s the actions that bring you the results.
So, simply put, don’t just talk about it. Be about it. Stop talking so much about what you’re going to do, and just get it done. Actions speak louder than your words ever could.
