Daily African Proverbs

The Mouth and the Hand Can Never Miss Each other | African Wisdom | AFIAPodcast

Hey everyone! It’s Simon Javan Okelo, your African proverb expert. Today, we’re talking about the Malawian proverb, “The mouth and the hand can never miss each other.”

This proverb is a reminder that our words and actions are always connected. We can’t say one thing and do another without people noticing.

But what does this mean for our lives? How can we use this proverb to create a better life for ourselves and others?

In this video, I’m going to share three nuggets of wisdom from this proverb, along with some personal stories and examples.

So if you’re looking for some African wisdom to help you live your best life, stick around!

Three nuggets of wisdom:

1. Your words and actions are always connected.

Think about it. When you say you’re going to do something, but you don’t, what message are you sending to the people around you?

What message are you sending to yourself?

When your words and actions are aligned, you build trust and credibility. You show people that you’re reliable and that you can be counted on.

But when your words and actions are misaligned, you send the opposite message. You show people that you’re not trustworthy and that you can’t be counted on.

2. Your words and actions have power.

The words you speak and the actions you take have the power to create or destroy.

They have the power to hurt or heal.

They have the power to inspire or discourage.

So be mindful of your words and actions. Choose them carefully.

Use your words and actions to create a better world for yourself and others.

3. You are the creator of your own reality.

Your words and actions create your reality.

What you say and do shapes the world around you.

So choose your words and actions wisely.

Create the reality you want to live in.
