You lose respect with people when your works contradict your words.
Respect is earned only by those whose works match their words.
It is your works that validates your words.
People no longer take your words serious when your works are far apart from your words.
Strive to validate your words by your works.
People may applaud your words but will give you standing ovation for your works.
You may attract attention by your words but you retain respect only by your works.
