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
General Colin powell writes, “Success ultimately rests on small things, lots of small things.” That is, if you want to be successful in your life, do not ignore the little guys.
Success comes from doing the little things really well. It is the key to mastery.
Success comes from mastering the fundamentals. Life is about fundamentals. It can make or break you.
If you are not successful, check how you treat the little guys in your life. The little things matter. Pay attention to them. They are what you need to get to the next level. Without them, you are not going anywhere.
“Success is not inevitable; it is within your reach.”
Success is achievable. But you cannot get there without encountering setbacks. Do not worry about your setbacks. They are a part of life. If you do not have setbacks in your life, you are not living your true life. You are not creating what you were born to create.
If you are not failing, if you are not falling, check your daily activities. Are they helping or hurting you? Are they serving or saving you?
If you want to be successful, you must pay attention to small things. Success is not inevitable. But it “rests on small things, lots of small things.”
