Or more simply, taking action on words shows the truth in them.
In my book, a word is not valid until it had been proven. Isn’t that true in the scientific one also? A verbal promise, utterance of love or devotion, or even a commonplace thing such as a meeting time, might as well be called a hypothesis until it is acted upon.
Why are actions so much more powerful than words? Because we can SEE them. We can FEEL them. They are proven to be true and therefore we accept them more willingly. Or at least that’s how it should go.
People wonder why trust is such a touchy and important subject in interpersonal relationships. This is because trust is solely dependent on actions. Actions that are taken when they are not supposed to be, or promised and left unfulfilled. So think about this next time you are speaking to somebody. Is what is coming out of your mouth, being written on your paper, or typed into your phone something that you truly plan on following up with? The best way to ensure trust in a relationship is to back up your words with your actions, and in the end treat the other person with the respect that you would like to be treated with.
Actions are an extremely powerful thing. They can make somebody, break somebody, bring some together and push others apart. What are you going to do with yours?
