Action. Actions are vastly different than speech. In one instance, you are speaking about the actions while the other is actually committing the action that you spoke about. You can speak all you want about a particular thing that you aspire to do or accomplish, but that is all that will happen. Your speech will linger on, echoing without having any true volume to it. The moment where your speech is put forth into the light is the point of action. Saying you are going to do something and then going out and actually doing it. That makes the difference between stagnation and growth.
