The Flaw In “Show Me, Don’t Tell Me”


Ever try to have a conversation with someone and they say “Show Me, Don’t Tell Me”? People use that in their relationships all the time, especially when the other person says the words love and sorry. There’s a flaw in that statement. It doesn’t allow for accountability.

Words create an intention.

Actions confirm that intention.

Without creating that intention there’s no accountability for what you show.

Showing on it’s own is OK, but telling and then showing confirms who you are. It confirms that you are a responsible person with integrity who takes action.

Doesn’t that sound like a powerful person?

So from now on, let’s use the statement “Tell Me, Then Show Me”.

Tell me-show me
