FOOD FOR THOUGHT : Actions speak louder than words

It is a time tasted adage that actions speak louder than words. When one is always on time, one does not have to inform anybody about it, others will do so on their behalf.You can always make people agree with you through your actions and not through your arguments; try to demonstrate your intentions with what you do.

You can always make people agree with you through your actions and not through your arguments; try to demonstrate your intentions with what you do.

The problem with trying to win victory with an argument is that at the end of the day you are not certain of how it affected the people you argued with.

They might out of politeness appear to agree with you but inside they may resent you because something you may have said inadvertently could have offended them.

“Words are a dime a dozen. Every one knows that in the heat of an argument we will say anything to support our argument, we will quote the bible and cite examples to prove a point,” wrote Balsarzar Sean.

An action is usually seen and not heard. There is a demonstration and proof to show for what you want to communicate to your audience and you make better meaning of your cause.

We have heard several cases where people are challenged against their words where they can not provide a fitting explanation for them.

From what you speak, people will always judge you. While actions take long to reveal your personality, words will speak a lot more about you. Say, people will define your attitude and conclude how arrogant you are.

Sometimes we say so much in order to impress our listeners but we cannot remember what we said yet we wish we did not say whatever we said but we cannot take the words back.

Actions can never be misinterpreted but words convey a number of meanings. Words will all the time want to be backed up with an action therefore you should stay on the watch with whatever you say as your tongue might sell you off.

Just like the idiom goes, ‘actions speak louder than words’, endeavor to act instead of using words that will later be used against you.
