We have many sayings in the American culture. One of them is, ” Your walk talks and your talk talks but your walk talks louder than your talk talks.” What this means is that your actions speak louder than your words. You can say something but when it comes down to it, what you do says more that what you really say.
You actions do speak louder than your words. You can offer someone who is qualified for an important position the chance to be promoted but if you turn your back on them to promote the person who has better looks, you are going back on your word. Going back on your word shows people that they can not trust you and it makes you a less respectable person.
People are more impressed with our sincerity if we act on our beliefs than if we merely talk about them. Acting on your words show that you are trustworthy and that you can not be driven away from your objective. It shows that you are a strong and willing leader. In politics, you can say that when you are elected into office that the people will have what you offered and promised them. If you do not follow up on what you say, the people will not support you anymore and will vote for another candidate who is running.
Actions speak louder than words. Your words weigh more than your actions. You can say that you are sorry over and over again, but until you change your actions and prove it, your words have no meaning. If you trip a friend and hurt them badly only saying that you are sorry may not sound like you really are, they may not believe you. You have to show that you are sorry by helping them up and asking them if they are okay.
“You can not build a reputation on what you are going to do.” This is a quote by Henry Ford stating that to build a reputation you can not promise something and then blow it off
