Psych Central

Who are you when the rubber hits the road?

Do you put your money where your mouth is?

Or are you all talk and no action?

All hat and no cattle?

Do you mean what you say and say what you mean?

Or are you just giving lip service?

Do you step up to the plate?

Come through in a pinch?

Do you know thyself?

Or are you selling yourself a bill of goods?

Talk is cheap, you know.
