“When your work speaks for itself, don’t interrupt.”
~ Henry J. Kaiser
If you are talented at something and people validate your talent through their words and gestures, don’t make the mistake of ruining their opinion of you by opening your mouth. The only way to excellence is to consistently improve yourself every single day. The real challenge to this statement is HOW do you change yourself. What methods do you need to incorporate into your life to be the best you can be? There are many excellent books written about this subject. Read some and learn from them and start becoming the person you thought you could never be – someone who others admire for their talents. Then, you won’t need to tell everyone how great you are; they’ll be able to see it in your silence. Remember, we have two ears and one mouth. Therefore, we should listen twice as much as we speak. Let your talent shine on through you and on to others without any words spoken. Create it today!
