Your Actions Speak Louder Than Your Words
I have listened to people promise the world and then the rubber hits the road and they are nothing what they claimed to be.
I gravitate to those that brag less and promise less and just go out there and perform.
I have also learned to never judge a book by it's cover.
In the end you are judged by what you DO not what you say.
Some People will say whatever it is that they think you want to hear or say whatever it is they need to in order to get what they want- the problem with that is sooner or later they need to produce.
Of course many of them are the same people that when they do not produce they will immediately blame everyone else.
A real winner and successful person works hard and talks less, they find out how to improve and accepts responsibility and if things go wrong they shoulder the blame and learn from it.
The thing is some people think they are cleaver and can out wit others when actually most people see right through them but allow them to spin their wheels.
Speak softly and carry a big stick.
