My dad, Chubba/Bud Myers, has taught me many life lessons, and is still teaching me. It’s amazing how they stick with you. A recent incident reminded me of one of the greatest lessons he ever taught: “Let others do your talking, because their words are so much louder than yours.” Stop. Think about it.
(Yes. I realize Chubba looks like Zach Galifianakis from “The Hangover”, which I guess would make me Carlos)
Let others do your talking. There is no reason why people should go around tooting their own horn. Now, I know that’s easier said then done. When you accomplish something great, or are very proud of something that’s happened to you… stop for a moment. Digest. Thank God for what has happened. Let others do your talking. If it really was a great accomplishment, someone will eventually say something about it. And, if it was worth talking about, other people will stop to listen. Because in the end, their words will speak so much louder than yours ever will.
