What is the difference between self-promotion and a big mouth? What is the difference between stating facts and bragging?
It’s the reason behind it. It’s the motivation for it.
Number One, self-promotion and facts, are meant to tell the world about what you have to offer.
Number Two, big mouths and bragging, are meant to elevate self by demeaning others.
Number One is positive. Number Two is negative.
Number One draws together. Number Two divides.
Number One influences for good. Number Two influences for bad.
Number One seeks to put a smile on a face. Number Two leaves a sour taste in the mouth.
Number One seeks good for self and is happy when others experience good. Number Two seeks good for self and hates it when others experience good.
Number One celebrates all success. Number Two condemns when it isn’t their success.
We all know some Number Two’s, don’t we? But I bet we know a lot more Number One’s, right?
