Work Hard in Silence, Let Your Success Be Your Noise – Frank Ocean

This is one of my favorite quotes. If you read between the lines, the message is pretty clear: you’re working hard and you’re feeling exhausted, you’re feeling like giving up, but you can’t, you have to be patient. If you keep going, your success will be huge!

Sometimes lack of patience leads us to huge mistakes, such as settling for something less valuable than the things we could achieve. Patience and determination are what makes the difference between mediocrity and success, and when we feel like giving up and settling for less, we should focus on our ability to wait for what we really deserve. We must wait for THE reward, not for just a reward.

When we feel disheartened, because we don’t see results, we should think that our success is on its way, and it will “make the noise.” Focusing on this idea, will make our worries disappear, or at least weaken. This helps to fuel the right motivation that we need in order to go on.

It’s like being in a tunnel.  If we are driving through a tunnel, the tunnel of the hard work, it doesn’t mean that it’s dark outside. After a long time in the dark, at the end of this tunnel, we will probably need a pair of sunglasses to tolerate the sunlight, the light of our success.

  1. Makes me feel a lot better: thank you; now back to work I go.

  2. Great Quote and wonderful explanation. Thanks for the Motivation!

  3. Thank you for the reminder. 😀

  4. I feel inspired. I will not let my dream die.

  5. I love this perspective. I’ve always thought about it as not talking so much and doing and letting success come. Very motivating ✨

  6. When I read this quote, I interpreted it more along the lines of not boasting or bragging about your talents, skills, and accomplishments and let them speak for themselves. I like your take on it too though.

  7. That’s an interesting take on this quote I didn’t think about! I always took it literally in not bragging about all of your accomplishments and hard work and rather letting the results and success speak for itself.

  8. @LessonPlansForLife and Lexes: it’s true, I focused more on the second part of the quote, because it’s really powerful and motivating.
    What you say is so true! We should both avoid to brag about our talents and accomplishments, and wait for success to “be our noise.”
    Plus, I believe that speaking less lets us focus more! 😉
    It’s all about being patient and humble.

  9. I like the good points you’ve used here, they inspire and needs to be embraced.

  10. @Mara thank you for your comment, yes in the end that’s the message: talk less, do more, be patient and let success come 🙂

  11. Very inspiring. Good motivation to keep me from giving up. Patience is definitely something I need to work harder on. Thank you for sharing.

  12. I love the tunnel analogy…”at the end of this tunnel, we will probably need a pair of sunglasses to tolerate the sunlight, the light of our success.”

    Thanks for the reminder!

  13. A great encouraging post, thank you!

  14. good, especially the correlation with analogy is quite thoughtful… nice post !

  15. “We must wait for THE reward, not for just a reward.”
