Make yourself heard

Make progress instead of promises. You are not known by the promises you make, but rather by the value you create.

Actions do indeed speak louder than words. Every positive, productive action builds your credibility and polishes your reputation.

The way to be impressive is to do impressive and valuable things. Instead of wasting your time posing as a successful person, get busy with the real and persistent efforts that will truly make you successful.

True accomplishment is infinitely better than the mere appearance of accomplishment. The way to gain the sincere respect and admiration of others is to make positive and valuable things happen.

Those who shout loudly and yet do nothing will eventually be ignored or laughed at. Those who work quietly and consistently end up gaining the greatest influence.

Instead of just talking about it, step forward and do it. Without saying a word, you can make yourself heard with the quality of your actions.

— Ralph Marston
