“Don’t underestimate me. I know more than I say, think more than I speak, and notice more than you realize.” By unknown
I think my Mom was just trying to tell something similar to this the other day. She was telling me to believe in myself more. It’s similar in that this is a mantra I need to say to myself. I love hearing from my. Mom & Dad how smart and talented they think I am, but it must come from me to become real strength. So, tell yourself this to hush those self-doubt thoughts.
Believing this is also a scream to the universe and anyone who is listening. You don’t need to share every bit of what you know. Power comes from knowing. Wisdom comes from knowing to share knowledge. Susan Cain talks ab out this in her book “Quiet”. Introverts have a strength that leaders need to see. It’s not what they run around advertising g and shouting that matters, but how they can and do use the extra levels of knowledge they acquired by listening to everyone else talking.
