While I was an undergraduate, the Chaplain often told a story about two birds flying in the sky. The one in front was female and the one in pursuit was male. The male would chirp ‘I love you, I love you’ and the female would respond ‘show it, show it’. I’ve also read about how the female eagle chooses her mate… quite interesting. It seems in a bird’s world, words are not enough.
Given that our words have the power to influence our lives, we must make the most of that power, but we must not stop there. We have to match our words with appropriate action in every aspect of our lives. Don’t just say I love you, show it. Don’t stop at saying ‘I’m going to be super rich’, take the steps to become financially literate and empower yourself to make the right decisions and take the right steps that will get you there.
What do you hope for? What do you want to see in your future? How amazing do you want your future to be? Well, add faith-filled words to your dreams, and to those words, add calculated, intentional and well informed action.
The sky won’t be your limit. It’ll be your starting point.
To your success!
