Show or Tell

Some people like to tell others what they can do.

Others prefer to show people what they can do.

Which is more credible?

If a high school football player is recruited by two coaches and one says “we are planning on winning a national championship” despite never having any experience at that level, how does that compare to the coach who says “we have won two championships and think you can help us win a third”. This second coach can show his national championship rings while the other coach can just talk about them.

Some people like to talk, I think the person who can so show what they can do is much more credible

Have a great day!
