When it comes to communication, if you don’t have anything important to say, just listen to what others are saying. You learn more when you listen.
Why silence is important.
“Silence is the element in which great things fashion themselves together; that at length they may emerge, full-formed and majestic, into the daylight of life, which they are thenceforth to rule.”- Thomas Carlyle
“Timely silence, then, is precious, for it is nothing less than the mother of the wisest thoughts.“- Diadochos of Photiki
“Move outside the tangle of fear-thinking. Live in silence.”- Rumi
“Silence is the perfect herald of joy: I were but little happy, if I could say how much.”- William Shakespeare
“The things you do not have to say make you rich.”– William Stafford
“Silence gives consent.”– Pope Boniface
“He sees only night, and hears only silence.”- Jacques Delille
“The silence of the people is a lesson for kinds.”- Soanen, Bishop of Senax
Anthony Trollope once said, “Never think that you’re not good enough yourself. A man should never think that. People will take you very much at your own reckoning.” You should never think that. Because you are a special human being.
“The purpose of living is growth.”
God didn’t create you by mistake. God created you for a purpose. You are here for a reason that is bigger than you. And that reason should be your mission. Do not make yourself smaller than you really are. People will treat you the way you want to be treated.
“Never think that you’re not good enough yourself.”- Anthony Trollope
You are good enough. You are smart enough. You are tall enough. You are rich enough. You are beautiful enough. You are you. You are here to follow your dreams. You are here to achieve your dreams. You are not here to compete with anybody. You are here to compete with yourself.
Whether you are rich or poor, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you are tall or short, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you are smart or not, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you have a degree or not, you are good enough for yourself. Whether you have a job or not, you are good enough for yourself. Because you are good enough for yourself. You are not doing people’s things. You are doing your own thing.
“You are here to live your life, not to prove yourself to anybody.”
As Maya Angelou once said, “You alone are enough.You have nothing to prove to anybody.” Yes, “you have nothing to prove to anybody.” You are here to live your life, not to prove yourself to anybody. Even though you want to prove yourself to someone, prove yourself to yourself. That is it!
