Even on the ever-bloated Internet, words still count for something. There may no longer be equal opportunity for self-publishers because of the noise. But words still fit in the chain of changing each person’s outcome.
Thoughts > Words > Actions > Habits > Lifestyles > Destiny
Some people hate on words, because they aren’t actions, and actions “do”.
But you could just as easily hate on thoughts because they don’t speak.
It’s an important link in the chain of designer destiny. There are thousands of thinkers who don’t speak for every speaker who doesn’t “do”. A person isn’t wiser or happier because they chose to leave their thoughts and opinions inside their own heads. They’ve just managed to avoid criticism and conflict, which happen to be important components to affecting change in the world.
Be careful not to resent words. Just be sure to take the next step when the time is right.
