Let your achievement speak about yourself rather than boasting your own work. Let your work and achievements have their own glory. It does not mean that advertising is bad. In fact, don’t assume people know what you do. Don’t assume they know how you can help them. You have to advertise your work but not the self. Right time will come and you will be recognized for your work and that is the time to show your humbleness.
You must develop the habit of sharing your work with the world. This habit must be practiced daily. If you’re the best in the world at what you do, but no one knows that you do it, then you are invisible.
Focus less on impressing people with your credentials and more on connecting with people. After that, don’t complicate things and let your work and achievements speak for themselves.
When your work speaks for itself, don’t interrupt.
Henry J. Kaiser
US industrialist (1882 – 1967)
