“Going to church doesn’t make you any more a Christian than going to the garage makes you a car. Your beliefs don’t make you a better person, your behavior does. Your words mean nothing if your actions are the complete opposite. Having true faith in whatever it is you believe must be shown through actions, believing is only half the battle. Let your dreams be bigger than your fears, your actions louder than your words, and your faith stronger than your feelings.”

We all know the old adage, “Actions speak louder than words,” yet we barely apply it in our daily lives. Parents for example, commit the dangerous mistake of teaching their kids not to hit other people through hitting them. This unconscious display of hypocrisy mutes their words as the young impressionable minds record their actions in HD. Whether you’re preaching morality to kids or to grownups like you, the best way to teach moral behaviour is through living morally.

Making our actions speak for themselves is also vital in every relationship, especially when asking for an apology. In an article published in The Journal of Positive Psychology, a group of psychologists who studied the effects of apology and restitution on forgiveness found that apology alone is not enough for the transgressor to be fully forgiven, as it lacks interpersonal consequences. This “silent forgiveness” doesn’t really fix the relational damage, because what people really want is genuine apology evident in changed behaviour.

Generally, our relationship with other people is governed by actions, not words. In fact, words bring most of the trouble in relationships more than we think! Actions may be silent but it is a more reliable messenger and its messages run deep into the human consciousness. Likewise, we shouldn’t just state our goals but really pursue them, one step at a time.

For further inspiration, take a hint from Benjamin Franklin: “Well Done is better than Well Said.”

An amazing discovery in an abandoned house in Austin, Texas: A lost book of amazing survival knowledge, believed to have been long vanished to history, has been found in a dusty drawer in the house which belonged to a guy named Claude Davis.

Remember... back in those days, there was no electricity... no refrigerators... no law enforcement... and certainly no grocery store or supermarkets... Some of these exceptional skills are hundreds of years of old and they were learned the hard way by the early pioneers.

We've lost to history so much survival knowledge that we've become clueless compared to what our great grandfathers did or built on a daily basis to sustain their families.

Neighbors said that for the last couple of years Claude has tried to unearth and learn the forgotten ways of our great-grandparents and claimed to have found a secret of gargantuan proportions. A secret that he is about to reveal together with 3 old teachings that will change everything you think you know about preparedness:
