“Make it a discipline not to discuss your personal details with others. Develop mystery, silence, and a secrecy about your life. Don’t allow people to know your deep, innermost self. Sure, you may have a friend you want to discuss things with from time to time. But, generally speaking, don’t talk about yourself. If you have to, do so only in general terms and only when people ask you. Of course, sometimes the situation may require you to talk about yourself, for example, in an office situation where you have to describe your abilities. But for the most part, keep quiet.
A powerful person doesn’t waste words, doesn’t waffle and drift, but instead, thinks through what he or she wants to say and expresses these thoughts succinctly and purposely. The most powerful way to speak is with brevity.”
Stuart Wilde, in “Silent Power”
