Make progress, not promises. We are not known by the promises we make, but rather by the value we create.
Actions do indeed speak louder than words. Every positive, productive action builds our credibility and promotes our reputation.
The way to be impressive is to do impressive and valuable things. Instead of wasting our time posing as a successful person, we should get busy with the real and persistent efforts that will truly make us successful.
True accomplishment is infinitely better than the appearance of accomplishment. The way to gain the sincere respect and admiration of others is to make positive things happen.
Those who shout loudly and yet do nothing will eventually be ignored or pushed aside. Those who work quietly and consistently usually end up gaining the greatest influence.
Instead of just talking about it, we need to step forward and "get it done." Without saying a word, we can make immense progress with the quality of our actions. It won't go unnoticed.
