I'll listen to the words and remember them but action is what really matters. It's nice to hear the words people say to you but it's the actions that really matter. Anyone can say anything but just the real people show it in their actions. It's the actions toward you that really matters.
Is it the words that important people in your life say to you, or is it the actions they have towards you that matter. I find myself thinking about this question more often now days?
It is the actions that they take, which makes a difference. What a person says has no importance if it do not reflect in his actions.
