People are prone to speak, but often fail to prove by action. It is easier to talk about what we want to do, or what we are going to do. However, the challenge comes in putting our words into action.
Dale Carnegie said, “The older I get the less I listen to what people say and the more I look at what they do.”
Leadership is about action. We make a difference when we practice what we preach. If we follow someone it should happen because we see their life in action, not in words.
Learn to listen, but lead by action.
