People don’t talk about what they have or are.

I actually was reminded of this idea by instagram. You know that app that makes it even easier for ‘hot’ women to try and capitalize on the generosity of mother nature.

Talented people don’t go screaming how talented they are.

Smart people don’t try to prove they are smart.

Rich people don’t have to show you how smart they are.

And people who are worth something don’t need titles to their name.

Well-intentioned people will not try to convince you they have good intentions.

And so on.

I notice this a hell of a lot with students.
