“Action speaks louder than words” is an age old proverb with a deep hidden meaning inside. Most of the people have the habit of boasting about what they are going to achieve in the future in an exaggerated form. This sounds crazy but it is indeed true.
People have the habit of making castles in the air and actually feeling and boasting that they have achieved a great milestone without actually doing so. It is extremely essential to remember that if your achievements are worth noticing, people will sooner or later come to know about them merely through the word of mouth.
It is better to take a step ahead and work hard in achieving your dream rather than feeling proud about it. If for example, you are a good student and you keep saying that I will come 1st in my class, it will not give you the pride and respect that you will earn when this fact actually comes true. The day you come 1stin class, it will be known by one and all sooner or later.
