I GAVE MY WORD

A lot of people talk a good game don’t they?
They say they’re going to do this and that,
But when push comes to shove:
They disappear.
When it’s game time:
They’re nowhere to be seen.
They say they are going to be the greatest ever.
But their work ethic shows average effort.
They say that they are going to be rich or famous,
But they are poor and ordinary.
“TALKING IS NOT ENOUGH.”
YOU MUST DO!
TALKING IS NOT ENOUGH!
YOU MUST PUT IN THE WORK!
You must develop the habit of following through with your word.
When you say you’re going to do something
YOU DO IT!
It’s called INTEGRITY!
When you honor your WORD
you build PRIDE for yourself
And RESPECT for others!
When you don’t…
When you talk and talk…
And never walk,
You lose PRIDE
And you lose RESPECT!
Repeat to yourself everyday:
If I say I am going to do something,
I do it!
If I give my word: I DO IT.
If I talk it: I will WALK IT.
If I say I am going to do something I do it.
When it gets hard, I give my word.
If something comes up, I give my world.
I will get it done,
and I do not even have to think twice.
I will get it done.
Talkers talk, walkers walk.
Don’t tell them what you are going to do,
show them what you have done.
Let your results speak for you!
Results say more than words ever will.
Keep your word,
do the work,
get the results,
GAME TIME!
THIS IS MY WORD,
I’VE SAID IT,
NOW…
I WILL DO IT.
