Treating people well.
So this is something that irks me most of the time. It seems that many people forget where they came from and only see where they are now in life. Forgetting how it feels to start from scratch, forgetting how it feels to come from nothing.
I have met many people that have reached a pinnacle, a certain status, or power in life that can now assume they can and do look down at people from their pedestal. A pedestal they placed themselves on.
I would say it’s more of a child’s highchair than a pedestal.
Their behavior is unprofessional and whiny, they generally treat people like shit. Why? because they think they can, although they got to where they are and were helped by the very people they treat like dirt!
How about giving back?
This is another thing that drives me a little crazy. Many of the well-to-do, “rich” people or let’s say wealthy people are often forgetful.
Forgetting what it is like to be nice.
Forgetting what it is like to be kind.
These few points are things individuals need to be reminded of. Giving back and caring is not a sign of weakness. It is a sign that you have grown as an individual and you have a heart. When you give, it feels good. Give time, money, and yourself. Trust me it will not hurt.
You will most likely feel good in the end and the good you give will be returned to you in time.
How much can you give?
Give your time, lend a hand, smile at people, and show them that you are human. Show them that you are someone that truly cares. It could be about employees, it could be about strangers or your family. Why are you a hard-assed miserable jerk all the time?
Why are you miserable?
Why are you mean?
Why are you angry?
Why are you sad?
At what point in life did you turn into a selfish asshole, a selfish miserable jerk? What and when did you lose yourself in your so-called success? Giving yourself the power to be a freaking jerk?
Well, now that you realize that you have been an asshole, go fix it. Be kind, be nice, and realize that there is more to life than chasing the next deal, the next big thing. See that you could be the next big thing by giving.
Giving feels good and you will be looked upon as a caring, loving individual. The love and care you give will be returned to you by others. Hang in there and see that not everyone out there is like you. There are nice people out there so let them find you…
