Well, well. It’s the very last day of 2018! For my last #MondayMotivation post of the year, I am sharing a quote from Benjamin Franklin. One that I needed to read myself. One that I hope pushes you further as we get ready to kick off another new year.

As a year wraps up, everyone loves to talk about what they plan to do for the next. I’m not even mad at New Year resolutions. It’s great to have things to aspire to as we hit refresh with a new year. But you know what’s even better? Actually getting it done. Well done is better than well said.

This year, I don’t even want to talk about what I plan to do. I’m just doing it. I’m just putting my head down and being obedient to the vision God blessed me with. I want to look up this time next year and be amazed at far I’ve come because I did the work instead of just giving lip service. How about you?


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.
