Talk is Cheap!

Talk is cheap!  It really is.  Think about it.  It costs you nothing.  It takes extremely minimal effort to do.  Talk is important for communication, but the communication must be followed by action.  How many things can be accomplished by simply saying that you are going to accomplish them?

None come to mind off right off the bat.  What good is it to state you are committing to a healthier lifestyle if you do not exercise or eat healthier?  What good does it do to state you need to quit _________ (smoking, drinking, spending money, etc.) if you choose not to change?  We live in a world that respects action.  Talk with no action undermines credibility.  What follows is 3 strategies to make sure your “talk” is not cheap!

1. Make yourself accountable. Utilize formal and informal support systems if you struggle with being accountable.  When we know we have someone to answer to, it helps us to fight through those times where our motivations may be a little low.  Your support systems can include family, friends, groups, and social media networks.  Documenting your actions or progress toward a certain goal on your social media account is an excellent way of staying encouraged and accountable.  Those who comment will likely be very supportive of you.  Plus you may unknowingly inspire someone.  Allow it to be a positive tool.

2. Change your people, places, or things. Granted, in many cases, it is hard to make wholesale changes due to certain circumstances in our lives.  However, we typically are able to some degree of change.  For example, a person who is dieting may drink water or tea instead of soda.  A person who is quitting smoking or drinking may avoid bars.  The downside to this is that when we make changes to our people, places, and/or things, in many cases, those closest to us are the least supportive or understanding.

3. Have a plan. You want to have a plan in place for a change.  Your plan is your foundation.  It will likely need to be adjusted; that is ok.  Plans provide a vision.

Doing these 3 things will ensure that you are more than just talk!

        I like the way you write in your blog. I am not sure if you looked at mine, but can you give me any pointers. This is my first ever, and I am not sure what other people think. You don’t have to reply but it would be appreciated

        I think using a list type format is good when writing a blog. For example, you might write about 4 important things hinge to consider in remodeling a home.

      Yes, it is difficult at times. A lot of times, we have to mentally distance ourselves from people.

    If we are accountable to ourselves then others will follow your own footsteps. If not for myself who will be? And if I am not for someone else who am I?

    Great post!!
