Let Your Feet Do The Talking

The message’ let your feet do the talking’ takes me back to my younger days as it was something my papa would say before a particularly big football match.

I never quite realized up until recently how that message has impacted me in all areas of my life.

Predominantly, it is about life position and knowing your merit, which is important for all of us.


The Football Changing Room

In our football changing room before a competitor, we had lots of different identities- those musicians who are capable of realizing others laugh, start the banter or tell the coach how good they were.

They might question the coaches’ decision on why they were substituted and so on.

I Keep Quite

Personally, I was the officer for most of the teams I played for but was also one of the quietest in the changing room. Perhaps a different way of preceding by sample- becoming sure my shirt was tucked in and sleeves rolled up.

Then, when we swept the white-hot line, it was like a switch turned on and I turned into a different animal.

Whilst I was calmly confident and trusted myself for the ability to come through, I can’t deny that I did sometimes look at those participates and think,’ I wish I had the confidence to stand up and say’ look, I’m good’ or’ I’m the best.’

I can certainly see how having that personality to be in people’s faces- metaphorically speaking now, can apply people on the front hoof initially and leave you feeling like they are better than you.

Psychologically, if you are coming back from hurt or knowledge trials and tribulations on a new crew, those people who were able to give it the large-hearted’ I AM’ would very likely be somewhat ahead, be interested to hear more, get more openings- even if there was no substance to their claims.

Then, the doubt may begin to kick in-‘ am I certainly as good as what I believe to be the case…why don’t I trust myself as much as I will be applicable to? ’ Perhaps you can relate to this in an area of your life?


The Different Changing Rooms

So, moving away from football now, what if we pertained the concept of Changing Rooms to our general lives?

We could call it a life-changing room, business-changing room, rapport changing room, or social media changing room.

We could call it whatever we like!

  • In our Business Changing Room– what if we have a product that we know will be so useful, is better than others produces, and will have so much impact on beings?
  • In our Social Media Changing Room– what if others have more’ friends’ who are willing to share their stories, their projects or their progress more and have so many more admirers or people liking and sharing things associated with their poles to report to ours?
  • In a Career Changing Room– what if we’re growing the goods behind the scenes and have been working so hard to please the boss so we can work towards that advertising? Our colleague, nonetheless, is the one that is always jumping up and down saying,’ gaze how hard I’ve been working and get noticed more with adoration as a result.

This is where the meaning of’ let your feet do the talking’ takes on a whole new meaning and becomes really impactful- and it certainly has for me.

In truth, there will always be durations when we see people being more confident and drumming up their abilities more than we do.

No Talking, Only Doing

We will see others are telling the world they can do this or that.

We will see others wishing to showcase their information or their makes.

We even look at someone who is wanting to impress in a manner that you would only cringe at doing.

There is absolutely no decision on parties doing that by the way- that is completely OK.

I have also needed to do that at times in my life and certainly in my business.

Nonetheless, if that does not feel like the most natural way to approach things, it’s likewise okay too!

In my opinion,’ Letting your hoof do the talking’ includes:

  • A solid foundation- just knowing yourself and where you’re coming from and you’re happy with that
  • Knowing your position- not that you’re better than the next being, rather that you’re equal to all those around you Confidence, self-reliance, knowing your merit, and trusting yourself
  • Having faith in your ability, despite what others tell you or what you hear others be talking about themselves
  • Having acquaintance that whatever you are and whoever you are will gleam through in the end

There is so much more to let your feet do the talking.’ Perhaps though it is worth considering that those embracing aspects I’ve just mentioned are things that we are all born with.


Homebase Positions

We’re inherently self-confident, we inherently have faith in our ability, we inherently trust ourselves.

They are our home base starting positions.

They are our natural state and believing otherwise may indicate we’ve moved away from our natural well-being for some reason.

For example, we’re comparing ourselves against others; we’re coming back from harm and are disbelieving ourselves to perform at these levels that we know we can; we haven’t achieved our pressurized purposes, or someone has told us we can’t do this or that.

If that happens, we can always remember that we’ve got this far, we must have been successful in our own channel, “were having” attained it to this point and we’ve even got ourselves.

Coming back to home base and knowing ourselves as we do, we can always only get back to’ permit our feet do the talking.’
