It doesn’t matter how much you tell someone what you’re going to do or how much you argue with another person about how your theories about a project concept is worth a million bucks. It’s your actions and the results you get that will prove your point.
In a boxing match it’s not the fighter who talks about how hard he hits and how fast he moves that wins the match, it’s the boxer who actually hits the other fighter the hardest and avoids the punches thrown by their opponent. It’s those actions (not the trash talk) that wins the match and brings the desired results.
When you’re watching pre-game football reports it doesn’t matter who the sports reporters and analysts think is going to win. It doesn’t matter which city they’re playing in as the home team or as the visiting team. It doesn’t matter that the stats from all the other games that season indicate one team is more likely to win than the other.
What matters is the action that takes place on the field.
The team that makes the best plays leading to scoring opportunities, the team that employs the smartest defense strategies, and the team that turns their actions into positive results will win.
Even if you’re the odds-on favorite to win big, you’ll be the big loser if you just sit back and take it easy instead of taking big action.
