Actions Do Speak Loudly: People Skills

Newspaper columnist and minister, George Crane, tells of a wife who came to his office full of hatred toward her husband. Fully intending to divorce her husband, she said, “Before I divorce them, I want to hurt him as much as he has me.”

Crane advised that she go home and act as if she really loved her husband. “Tell him how much he means to you.” he said, “Praise him for every decent trait. Go out of your way to be as kind, considerate, and generous as possible. Spare no effort to please him, to enjoy him. Make him believe you love him… then drop the bomb… That will really hurt him.”

The woman exclaimed, “Beautiful!” And she did as he had suggested with enthusiasm, acting as if she loved him.

Two months later she returned to Crane, who asked, “Are you ready to go through with the divorce?”

“Divorce!” she said, “Never! I discovered I really do love him!”

Action can change feeling.

Motion can result in emotion.

Love is established not so much by fervent promise as by often-repeated deeds.

This story illustrates perfectly how actions are and can be the most pivotal thing to focus on – actions –

Act well

Act loving

Act happy – and see what happens – no doubt it will be good, good and more good!

Remember – you create your day by the way you think – make it magnificent!

Blessings, Shawna
