The Hard Way w/ Joe De Sena

“Don’t talk about it, Be about it.” ~Even-Esh

“Let your actions speak so loudly, that I cannot hear your words.” ~ Ralph Waldo Emerson

Zach Even-Esh talks about how this manifests in a coaching environment with his athletes in the gym.

I like to use it not only to drive me forward with action, but to also help manage my expectations of others. It’s so often we are told one thing or another by someone who could either be trying to ‘sell’ you, has low or distorted self-awareness, is confused or no idea, etc. If we always put full stock in their words we are likely to be much less satisfied with any results.

Proof is in the effort of action. When someone tries to convince you they intend to do something or be something, nod and then observe. It’s the actions taking place (or that are absent) that will measure the true authenticity.

Look for activity that you would expect to see if intent were pure
Train yourself with a do not say attitude
When someone is always telling you about what they are going to do, it’s more likely that it never will. Otherwise, it’d already be happening.
