Where the rubber meets the road.
“The most important point for something, the moment of truth. An athlete can train all day, but the race is where the rubber meets the road and they’ll know how good they really are.”-UsingEnglish.com
On average, according to all those studies the universities put on, women talk an average of 20,000 words a day…and men roughly 7,000. Before getting into this post I just have to say it: is it possible that us girls say 13,000 more words than guys a day?!?! (I’m kinda shy though…so maybe this is why this number gap is hard for me to fathom.) My basic point of these statistics is to simply point out: we talk an awfully lot.
As I was thinking about where the rubber meets the road kind of moments, I kept thinking about all of the hopes, dreams, ambitions I’ve shared with people. I’m gonna get my master’s degree…I’m gonna write a book…I’m gonna travel hear or there…etc. But it’s not just the big dreams or plans…it’s the little ones too: I’m gonna try a new look, I’m gonna loose weight, I’m gonna help out some good cause, I’m gonna call so-and-so because I haven’t talked to them in forever, I’m gonna fix up the mustang, I’m gonna talk to the cute guy that sits across from me on the subway, I’m gonna start running every morning…IT COULD BE ANYTHING. Anything you think you could, should, or might just want to try doing.
But realistically, how many of us actually get around to doing these things? How many of us just end up talking about doing them instead?
Where the rubber meets the road. The moment of truth.
NEVERUNDERESTIMATE the power of action.
At the end of the day, Words are just words…all 13,000-20,000 of them.
Action is what turns words into reality.
Actions accomplish goals.
Actions will get you where you want to be.
Actions will make you a better person.
Actions will help you find the right person.
Actions will help you write your book.
Actions will help you get into a new career.
Actions will help you get healthy.
Actions are what dreams are made of.
Actions will make your dreams come true.
Don’t just talk about what you are going to do. Do it.
Let’s not be people with hopes and dreams and well…people who just end up with hopes that never happened or dreams that never came true. Let’s stop talking and get to work. Let’s put some action behind our words. Let’s accomplish things, let’s be someone who did something about their hopes and dreams….and all the little things.
Whatever that thing is that you’ve been talking about doing…just DO IT (stealing from Nike, I know).
