Value Quote of the Week: Walk the talk

“The most important thing is that we are walking our talk. Be it. Just be it.”
~ Gabby Bernstein

     To walk the talk, according to Wiktionary, is to perform actions consistent with one’s claims. Talk, as they say, is cheap, but going all in to actually be and/or do what you claim takes a lot of grit, consistency and discipline.

We find that a lot of us can claim and unclaim, discuss passionately and argue vehemently about a cause or concept, preach to others, hold verbal campaigns, etc. However, what’s most important is really taking actual steps to back up our words with corresponding actions.

It’s easy to set goals, even outline strategic plans to achieve them, down to the littlest detail, but the real deal is in starting and carrying out the plans. So, work on going beyond the talk and walk it. It doesn’t have to be perfect at first, just start walking.

Here’s an apt quote by Chris Gardner:

“Walk that walk and go forward all the time. Don’t just talk that talk, walk it and go forward. Also, the walk didn’t have to be long strides, baby steps counted too. Go forward.”

Enjoy the week and keep walking. Thanks!
