Quiet is good. Action is even better. Those that do a lot of talking seem to need a lot of attention. Talk is cheap. Without an action, it is meaningless. When you listen to public figures, the message comes across like a “broken record,” What you hear is the same. Without action, whether from a public servant or not, these statements are lies. They are deceptions that only add to the anger and frustration of many others. Rather than talking, we must know that it is only that. Knowing that it is only that without action, yes, please be quiet and allow others to act.
With those that act, many of as would rather be quiet. By being quiet, expectations of the other, whether that is one or en masse, are not heightened. With the action, one may not succeed. One may fail. if we fail, who have we failed. No public announcement was ever made. As it pertains to my own mundane and personal goals, is it better to be public or private?
I have decided that my personal goals are my own. I own my own aspirations. What I do for others I will do in quiet. If the involve someone, the other party will find out in due time. The reality is the surprise of the unexpected is far better than the disappointment of what is expected. Expectations can become entitlements. Receiving too many entitlements is not healthy and destroys initiative. When I am quiet, I have the ability to use all my senses. I learn about the other and the surroundings. By quiet, there is far more power. What is the point of needlessly giving it away? That personal power has, is, and always has been there. Using that power for selfish and attention seeking reasons is a waste of time and personal power.
