Are you a verb or a noun?

JULY 14th of ‘How To Change Your Life One Day At A Time‘.

In his brilliant ‘devotional’ book: ‘Ideas Are Free Execution Is Priceless’, Scott Ginsberg says it brilliantly:
A verb is anything that expresses action or being. It could be a word. But it could also be an idea. Or a person. Or a product. Or an entire organisation.
He goes on to say:
The point is: Nouns aren’t noticed.

Basically what Scott is getting at is ‘verb’ people are active. They are being what or who they want to be and they’re doing things that they want to do.

‘Noun’ people on the other hand are passive – they just describe.

Ask a ‘noun’ teacher who they are and they might say ‘I’m a teacher.’ But ask a ‘verb’ teacher who they are and they might say “I teach children how they can be who they want to be, and that they can achieve anything they set their minds to.

So, are you a verb or a noun?
