The Ability To Be Insulted

For some of you, those aren’t haters. Those are honest people pointing out that you suck.

As our society spirals towards the bottom, I’ve noticed that incredible and ever-increasing numbers of people swear that they have “haters”.

For some of you, those aren’t haters. Those are honest people pointing out that you suck. Continue reading “The Ability To Be Insulted”

2016 Alliances & Partnerships

Sometimes, it isn’t the best thing to be the smartest person in the room.

Sometimes, it isn’t the best thing to be the smartest person in the room.

This is where consulting, business partnerships, and other sorts of teamwork come into play.

Even when you have the right idea for yourself, your consideration of the situation may be limited by what you know about yourself.. The personal limitations you know you have.

Adding one or more other people to the equation does way more than double your abilities now that there are two people involved.

The other person comes to the table with his or her life, personal, and business experience, none of which YOU HAVE! 😀

The other person comes to the table with equipment that they spent their money on that you didn’t.

I’ve seen the future… It’s creating alliances and partnerships in 2016. Continue reading “2016 Alliances & Partnerships”

Lose To Win (Cain’t Get Thar From Heuh)

Some people don’t recognize that the person they’re dating is a liability.

As a progressive person, meaning someone that strives to make progress every day towards being a better person by tomorrow than they are today, and for whom that’s practically 100% of how my days go, you can reach a situation where you can’t win any more by pressing forward with the wins you currently have.

You have to give something up in order to open up a new pathway to your own future greatness. Continue reading “Lose To Win (Cain’t Get Thar From Heuh)”

Step Backward to Move Forward (Selective Neglect)

Whether you’re a 9-5’er or a freelancer, you want to have time set aside to learn new things.

I always advise people to leave themselves time for self-improvement.

What I mean by this is that whether you’re a 9-5’er or a freelancer, you want to have time set aside to learn new things.

This is because if your skills remain the same while your industry improves, you get left behind.

It’s also because you can’t change directions if all of your time is spent going in your current direction.

If you find yourself in a situation where you feel stagnant, or if not that, you feel like your current situation is hindering your ability to move forward, the solution may be to step backward instead of trying to maintain what you currently have going on and add to it.

Untitled 60

There is a limit to being able to tolerate interacting with people who just plain suck as human beings.

At some point, I accepted the responsibility on an internet site to babysit a group of grown-ass men.

That isn’t what it started out as, but that’s what it turned into.

This is because the population changed from a group of guys and gals that had similar interests and a singular focus, as more and more people arrived just to be able to talk to somebody and not feel lonely anymore.

Also, a lot of these people came from another internet site, where the culture is to not say what your name is and then talk all kinds of trash about people because you know there won’t be any repercussions.

Those environments breed people into being negative creatures. They lose their sense of camaraderie. They lose their ability to gain pleasure from positive interaction. So long as they’re attempting to make someone else feel bad, they’re happy with themselves and snickering in their basements, or under whichever bridge their computer is located.

I wanted to mention that scenario because I learned something from it today. Continue reading “Untitled 60”
