You can't talk your way out of something you behaved your way in to.
I think that's fantastic. Covey went on to talk about how you must behave your way out of things you've behaved your way in to and elaborated on how words alone won't cut it.
This is fitting in so many ways right now. From politics (I'm looking at you Sen. Obama) to occurrences in my daily life it is just a perfect thought to meditate on.
