One of my favorite quotes is;
Your actions are speaking so loud, I can’t hear what you’re saying!
I’m not sure why, but I’ve been saying this a lot lately.
It’s easy for us to say something. It’s easy to commit to an idea, an action, a movement.
What’s hard, is doing it. It’s hard putting in the work, the time, effort, taking action. Yet, that’s what everyone is watching.
What are you doing?
Being authentic with our voice means saying it with our actions. When our actions AND our voice are aligned, we’re being authentic and great things happen.
Our actions tell the true story. Our actions either quell our voice or expand it. When our voice and actions don’t align our ability to lead, influence, inspire, and support are jeopardized. We become inauthentic. When our voice and actions align our voice is magnified. We’re authentic. The vision is inspiring, our support is trusted, our influence amplified.
It’s not enough to say it, we have to do it, and that’s when it gets hard. It’s easy to speak, but hard to do.
What are you really saying? Don’t listen to yourself, watch yourself!
That’s what everyone else is doing.
