Speak Louder Than Words

"Actions speak louder than words, so believe what you see and forget what you heard."

What is true about life is that the actions we are willing to commit are much greater in showing others where we are in life than words alone. Words are very powerful, and heavily influence our actions, but words aren't always enough.

To show that we are really about what consumes our mind, and our mouths, we have to be willing to act!

Think positively, speak positively, and act positively. You may believe in yourself and your dreams with all of your heart, but if you never act on these things then you will never move one inch closer towards ever seeing them realized.

As you take steps each day towards the life you know that God has meant for you, be bold. Don't walk lightly, run to your dreams, run to your goals, and set the bar high, so that when you finally achieve them you may truly be satisfied!

Nails In The Fence

"Be patient and understanding. Life is too short to be vengeful or malicious."

There once was a little boy who had a bad temper. His father gave him a bag of nails and told him that every time he lost his temper, he must hammer a nail into the back of the fence.

The first day the boy had driven 37 nails into the fence. Over the next few weeks, as he learned to control his anger, the number of nails hammered daily gradually dwindled down. He discovered it was easier to hold his temper than to drive those nails into the fence.

Finally the day came when the boy didn't lose his temper at all. He told his father about it and the father suggested that the boy now pull out one nail for each day that he was able to hold his temper. The days passed and the young boy was finally able to tell his father that all the nails were gone.

The father took his son by the hand and led him to the fence. He said, "You have done well, my son, but look at the holes in the fence. The fence will never be the same. When you say things in anger, they leave a scar just like this one. You can put a knife in a man and draw it out. It won't matter how many times you say I'm sorry, the wound is still there."

The little boy then understood how powerful his words were. He looked up at his father and said "I hope you can forgive me father for the holes I put in you."

"Of course I can," said the father.
