“Actions speak louder than words”. It is not what people say that matters. It is the action that they take preceding or succeeding to the words that truly give meaning to the word. Therefore, be extra careful of hearsay, gossip, news, information or rumours that has no form of tangible, measurable and visible action to it. The proof of the word is in the action.
Yes, “What goes round comes round” is a cliche. Yet there is a whole lot of truth to this. If we are indeed the source of our own destiny, then what ever we do, good or bad, will create repercussion ripples which in turn effect our outcomes. That is why in personal mastery, the first place we look (responsibly, not victimy) at when we produce a result is us, the source. Allah knows best.
