Actions speak loudest
(第18期)
 
 

  Vincent van Gogh was not always an artist. In fact, he wanted to be a church pastor and was even sent to the Belgian mining community of Borinage in 1879 in that capacity. He discovered that the miners there endured terrible working conditions and poverty-level wages.
One cold February evening, while he watched the miners walking home, he spotted an old man staggering toward him across the fields, wrapped in a burlap sack for warmth. Van Gogh went home and laid his own clothing out on the bed, set aside enough for one change, and decided to give the rest away. He gave the old man a suit of clothes and gave his overcoat to a woman whose husband had been killed in a cave-in.
A rich family in the community offered him free room and board. Van Gogh refused the offer. He believed that if he wanted the miners to trust him, he must become one of them.
He was aware of the gap between words and actions. He knew that our actions always speak louder and clearer than our words.
Others are “listening” carefully to your actions. What are you “saying” to them?
