Walk your talk

Rarely can you make an effective argument just by talking. The way to convince people of your point of view is to live that point of view.

Live what you believe, day in and day out. No amount of scolding or cajoling or persuasive rhetoric can equal that.

If you have trouble getting people to believe you or take you seriously, it’s probably because your actions don’t completely agree with your words. Do what you say, consistently, without fail, and your credibility will grow.

Rather than explain how much you care, show how much you care. Connect with others on a personal level, and be of genuine service.

The most persuasive way to talk, is to walk your talk. Let your actions and the way you live your life demonstrate who you are.

What you say can make a big difference, but only if it is fully supported by what you do. Walk your talk, and both your walking and your talking will get great things done.

— Ralph Marston
