Self-boasting or bragging !

The herd of elephants 🐘 diverted the flooding river towards the dry pastures of the forest by directing the flow using the tree logs

This isn't a fictional part but an ongoing lifestyle inside the jungle where each of the lives plays a designated and significant role in the nature conservation

None of these wilderness stands claims to their share of achievement nor trumpet about their role in the efforts

This self-boasting is an exclusive trait of the humans who for even a meagre contribution try and claim their share of recognition

A person who succeeds in an endeavour is generally found beating the drums of the success tunes and expects others to pay attention to their music

Even a soulful number remains in the hearts of the listeners for such times till another tune outplays that

This principle applies to human achievements too, there's always a better performer who will emerge to overshadow the current champion

The age-old proverb describes that "a pot full of water will not make noise but the half-full will"

Those who remain humble and collected even after great achievements are the ones who will rule the world

Those who spend maximum hours bragging about their successes will miss ruling even their life

A gorilla will beat its chest for a while after a win but will go about its life without constantly beating its chest

Every fraction of success needs to be relished but shouldn't become a full-time job since the mind must focus on the other jobs on hand

Shouting at the top of our voice at a peak will only echo but a mild conversation will resonate with the listeners

Self-boasting or bragging about will only make enemies and negate the good deeds done

Hence it's wise to limit the tunes to the listeners choice and keep working to tune better numbers instead of increasing the beats

People's deeds speak better than their voices, so let's learn to focus on the cause than on the gains

Fast music may shake the leg but it's the melodious numbers that will remain at the heart

Unnecessary opening of the mouth will end up as the open & shut case, wise to keep the mouth shut and open only at the essential moments

Actions, they say speak louder than the words hence the wiser will practice performing than to keep bragging on the past

History is not written by the skill of the mouth but rather by the sheer actions of lifetimes

May we focus to act on our lifetime to create history rather than brag on our history 🙏🏼
