The Being & The Doing EPISODE 23:
How to Walk Your Talk to Greater Success
Do you walk your talk? It’s how people decide whether you are credible or not. All of us get out of alignment where our words and actions don’t line up. In this episode we take a look at why it’s important for your ducks to be in a row and how to close the gap between what we say and what we do.
*A full transcript will soon be posted at the bottom of this page.
How to Create Guiding Principles for Life
It’s easier to walk your talk if you have some personal rules to help guide your choices.
Give this blog a read to get started on your own guiding principles.
Walk your Talk Reflection or Journaling Questions
When our words and choices line up we walk our talk.
Here are some great questions that can help you get clearer about your core values:
Pause periodically in your day and ask “What core value am I honoring right now?”
When you feel frustrated or irritated, ask “What’s the most important value for me to remember in this moment?”
Or “What value is being trampled on that makes me feel irritated?”
How Coaching Helps
Exploring your core values can be a more meaningful experience if you have someone guiding the process. I would love to help you do that, or work with you to stay in better alignment walking your talk. Check out how you and I can start working together.
This Episode’s Homework
Something to think about:
What impact would it have if you as an individual walked your talk?
How would that make a difference to the people that you encounter every day?
Something to try:
Choose a core value and make it the word of the day. Then filter your decisions and choices through that value.
For example, if you choose compassion, look for opportunities to bring it to life throughout the day – from the moment you get up, on your drive to work, at the grocery store etc.
BE compassion for a day.
