Actions speak louder than words

Many people talk so much. They talk about so many things. They even make promises. They use their mouth to accomplish something. They talk without results. Then, why talk? There is always a saying that one voice can make a difference. When you voiced out what you want to say, then people will listen and it can actually change the situation. But that does not mean, you stop. You just started. From the time you voiced out and say what you, you just started something that will make a diffence. What I am talking now is how you can act those things that you have said. People make promises and they use their lovely words to make people fall in their trap. Have you experience that. Well, personally I have countless experience. I have experience mostly from business people. They are good in sales talk as what we call. They can easiliy sell their product because they were trained to do so. They use various techniques to make people believe of what is unbelievable. I also experienced from friends and even from family members. Too much words have been spoken. But until now, there were no results being done. So what happened. Can people make their promise first before saying a word. Well, that is not possible too. I just share this sentiments because, once again, I was promised by a friend, and until yet, his promises were blown by the wind. So I have to do something to accomplish what he just promise. Actions can prove that he is sincere. Better act than saying words. Keep posting Happy Mylotting Jeff

There a re a lot of people out there that make prommises and they don't keep them. I guess thats how we know who our true friends are.

I remember this Neighborhood friend that promised to give all of his toys that he showed me in his room. but times has passed he didn't do it, he was just fooling me around. i didn't hold it against him but i decided not to make friends with him either because he's not up to his promise. some people do more actions than words but sadly almost everyone is doing the opposite.

i agree.better act than saying words. but someone always saying words than he did. they always saying form day to night,we can hardly see what they do.and if there are happened something they will say that .oh the thing i have konw it will happened and now it is happened.and so on. I do not like that people who always saying and not to do something.

i think talking is obviously a fabulous communicative attribute to us, but we have one mouth and two ears..i feel if more people concentrated on listening to what is actually being said, alot more understanding and honesty between us would be displayed! many people say...'he/she needs a good talking too' whaen actually what they should say is 'he/she needs a good listening too'!

I agree with what you have in mind because I am a person of action rather than words.

Well, this is part of the Real World Concept where people are so promising but promises are made to be broken. Actions always speak louder than words but it only happens when people do stuff negatively. they may not say it but actions shows.

I strongly agree with what you say. I have also had lots of experience and especially on products and services where the sales person describes their product as if its the best that we can find but nothing seems to be real. Thats just the way they market. Another thing that I have realized is a person who speaks alot cannot do what they say and most sales person who does not exagerate the product, the product seems to better than those who talk big.

There has always been those sort of people and there always will be. All I can say is that in the end it backfires on them. If someone doesn't make good on their promises, I learn not to pay attention to their promises. Sooner or later they get a reputation of being all talk & no action. The same goes for sales people. If their product is not all what they say it is, sooner or later the word gets out and then no one is willing to trust them. They are just killing their own business.

I agree with you yuan that Actions speak louder than words and I just hope that our local politicians in our country will practice the same. Less talk and more projects.

If we take talking is bad enough try thinking. If one could hear other people's thoughts he would go crazy which is why probably we don't have that capability. Listening to myself think sometimes makes me crazy too. I try to curb my thoughts and direct them to something worthwhile.

I believe that sometimes when people talk they mean to help but other things get in the way, also it is not just the fault of the speaker, it is also the listener, I have never say no without hearing someone ask me why not? and if there reason is I do not know if I can, there follows an small argument most people can't deal with that so they end up saying yes to things that maybe are not possible. And also like I say before, circumstances can change. It is hard to be a person that always keeps her/his word but it can happen.

Yes i have noticed this a lot, people are very good at talking and making promises,there are so many people today I call procrastinators, I think they have intentions but just follow through, maybe we get this from out politicians they are very good at that, but it really hurts when it is family and friends that do it to you...i pride myself not to be a procastinator, I say and i do...I guess I don't like doing to other people what I don't like myself...
