Listen to the Story


Once upon a time, there was a boy named John. John was always bragging about how brave he was and how he could do anything. His friends didn't believe him because John never backed up his words with actions. One day, John and his friends went to play in a park near the forest. Suddenly, they heard a loud growl. They turned around and saw a big, ferocious fox. John's friends were terrified and froze in fear, but John started shouting at the fox, telling it to go away. To John's surprise, the fox didn't budge. Instead, it started coming closer, ready to attack. John's friends pleaded with him to do something, but John was frozen in fear. It was then that one of John's friends decided to act. She picked up a stick and started waving it in front of the fox. The fox was scared and ran away. John's friends were amazed. They realized that John's words were just empty promises, but their friend's actions had saved them. From that day on, John's friends respected the one who acted bravely and knew that actions speak louder than words. The lesson to be learned from this story is that actions speak louder than words. It's not enough to merely talk about our abilities and intentions; we must demonstrate them through our actions to gain the respect and trust of others.
