— Gary Ryan Blair
Fundamental truths are always a constant.
They are fixed across time.
Forever unchanged and unbroken.
Applying equally from age to age and generation to generation.
Acta Non Verba…
Is Latin for “Deeds Not Words”.
To achieve your goals and create meaningful impact…
You must get in the arena and let your deeds do the talking.
Words without deeds are empty promises.
That’s why I love everything about Acta Non Verba.
It connotes a certain pragmatic stubbornness.
A no-nonsense approach to living…
And a devotion to simple common sense.
Deeds not words, sends a clear message that action always beats intention.
It tells the world that you understand behavior never lies.
In my opinion…
Deeds not words…
Is a brilliant, transparent, and highly effective approach to life that anyone can adopt to perform at their absolute best.
From this moment moving forward…make your life a model of this philosophy.
1. Prove It… Show Me That You Love Me.
Think of everything you can do, large and small to demonstrate your love without saying a word.
The message will be received quickly and appreciated more than you could ever possibly imagine.
Love must be shown in deeds, not words.
2. Prove It…Show Me That You Care About Your Customers
Caring manifests itself through continuous improvement and performance excellence to ensure the highest standards of our products, services, processes and technology.
Every hospital has an ICU, an Intensive Care Unit where patients receive rigorous attention and care. Shouldn’t every business, team or project incorporate their own version of an ICU?
Caring must be shown in deeds, not words.
3. Prove It… Show Me That You Are Committed to Excellence.
Define the non-negotiable rules of a superior performance and then flawlessly perform the part.
Your actions will be far more powerful than your words…and that’s why excellence must be shown in deeds, not words.
4. Prove It… Show Me How Hungry You Really Are?
Get up early, develop a daily game plan, throw yourself into every task and your actions will show and tell the world how hungry you are and how badly you really want it.
Good things come to those who hustle…who work hard…who pay the price and who initiate progress. Always has. Always will.
Hunger and desire must be shown in deeds, not words.
5. Prove It… Show Me That You Have the Courage to Persevere.
Bounce back from setbacks quickly, never lose your enthusiasm for your goal…and confront every obstacle with an indomitable, unconquerable spirit.
Perseverance must be shown in deeds, not words.
6. Prove It… Show Me That You Are a Professional.
Be on time, be fully prepared, be self-sufficient and consistently deliver results.
By doing so…you’ll never have to utter a word as your reputation will do all the talking for you.
Professionalism must be shown in deeds, not words.
7. Prove It… Show Me That You Have a Sense of Urgency.
Work fast, focused and purposeful. Set a deadline on each activity and neither accept nor provide any excuses. Your deeds will open up new and greater opportunities almost immediately.
Urgency must be shown in deeds, not words.
The strategic benefits of living a “Deeds Not Words” existence are vast and profound:
• Your reputation will speak well of your character and professionalism.
• Opportunities will come faster and with less effort.
• People will trust you and gladly provide referrals.
• You will make more money.
• You will attract an entirely new quality of people.
• You will have the inner confidence of a champion.
• You will never have to apologize for not walking your talk.
Acta Non Verba…is anchored, firmly, in authentic life-affirming wisdom.
You know it as the truth because in your experience, in your own life…
It has proven to be the purest form of knowledge…
Indivisible, indestructible …. surviving the harshest criticism and the strongest of attacks.
