“In all labour there is profit: but the talk of the lips tendeth only to penury.”-Proverbs 14:23Most times, people lose their great ideas to others, because they tell it too early to the wrong people. Some others ended up not engaging that great idea, because they got discouraged by those they told on the way. If they had thought properly, they would have known the best approach to it. Those who work the talk, describe it more with their actions, not words.
Great men are usually men of honour, because they engage their ideas more than talk about them. It is the result you produce that gives you worth, not necessarily the many words you have to say about it. Working out your ideas entail that you lay step by step every detail of it, and source materials to make it work. When you only talk too much, you might just lose the worth of it and end up not doing it all together.
Some people tend to spend more time explaining what they want to do, how they want it achieved and the mega profit they would derive from their actions, and then end up not doing anything. Other than bragging, put your hands to work on them and you will realise that time used in making it happen is most well-spent than the hours spent telling others about it. Resourceful workers talk less, because they concentrate more of their energy on results.
Therefore, be slow to speak, careful not to waste your time on worthless talks and quick to engage productively that great idea you have. Your ideas will only have worth if it has proofs to show. More so, it is easier to explain and get corrected in practical, than when done theoretically. So, put your ideas to work and it would speak for itself.
