Speaker 1 (00:00):
What's somepcise team you're listening to? The Daily Game a
compilation of motivational quotes I've collected over the years that
I've found inspiring and helped me through the game of life.
Today's quote is about keeping it real. Telling everything to
everybody is not keeping it real. It's talking too fucking much.

Everybody doesn't need to know everything you know. You don't
have to share your personal business with everybody. You don't
have to share your business business with everybody. One of
the keys to business is secrecy. You can't just go
out and blab everything you're trying to do. Also, I
teach my son this, I'm like, don't speak on things

before they happen. You'll jinx yourself. You also give your
haters a chance to get in and booby trap what
you're trying to do. And honestly, in this world, I'm
willing to say more than seventy percent of the things
that are planned never happened. Especially in business, things fall through,
the funding didn't come through, this partner pulled out. So

then what ends up happening is you're talking a lot
about things that don't happen, and that'll make people perceive
you as a failure, whereas if you just kept your
mouth shut and waited until these things actually happened, then
they'll seem like mostly everything you talk about happens only
because you're not talking about it until it actually has happened.

So a lot of people dislike to talk. Oh yeah,
I'm keeping it real. I'm telling you everything about me.
I'm telling you how I feel. I'm telling you exactly
what's going on. That's not keeping it real. That's rest
running your mouth and talking too much. Some things are
much much better left unsaid, and your power to be
quiet and not talk. Like one of my friends was

telling me, when I walk into a room, I'd rather
play dumb. I wanted to see who is the smart
person in the room. I might be the smart person
in the room, but I don't need to let them
know that. I need to just sit back and see
who the smart person is in the room. If I'm
the dumbest one in the room, then I need to
be listening. That way I can learn if I'm the
smartest one in the room. Why do I gotta let

them know that? I'm just gonna sit back. So sometimes
just being quiet is your most powerful move telling everything
to everybody is not keeping it real. It's talking too
fucking much. Learn how to shut your fucking mouth. This

has been another ice cold fact from me Iced Tea.
Listening again tomorrow when I drop some wisdom on your
ass Till then, stay safe, stay smart, and stay knowing
that running your mouth is not the same as keeping
it real. ICE's Daily Game. It's a production of iHeartRadio,
